Once sets you straight. The restaurants around the tourist sites can be very expensive and not so good.
Phil is right but it is interesting to know that although Hungary is a good wine producing country, most people drink beer. It is fashion I guess.

Those not well traveled in cities with an underbelly, and those still naive enough to believe flattery from strangers are susceptible everywhere. Two things, I think, are special about Budapest, though, that make this stand out here in ways it does not elsewhere.
First, Budapest has a reputation for being a kind of massive red light district. This may have been true once, and the laws may well still be more accommodating here or look the other way more concertedly , but for a visitor keen on something other than sex the red light district is basically invisible and with the exception of the occasional strip-club emerging after 9: This means that all those randy young footballers and stag parties coming to Budapest for a weekend actually have to do a bit of work to find what they are looking for, and as a group they tend to be easily deceived perhaps because they are so often inebriated as they search.
Second, because these practices are largely unregulated, and the police are often a paid off and b limited to speaking only Hungarian, there is very little one can do once one finds oneself with a Euro tab for a few drinks other than pay it and complain to one's embassy. SO, if you are coming to Budapest for sex, or for that matter for companionship from attractive strangers of the opposite gender, you are well warned to be as cautious here as you would be in a country where the sex business was banned and everything lurid takes place sub rosa and without regulation or control.
