‘M’ Restaurant (M Étterem) in Budapest is an artistic, relaxed little restaurant in Kertész utca Budapest – some adore it, while others find it, well, below expectations. Even its name is a riddle, not intended to be deciphered as the letter ‘M’ could stand for so many things, people, places. “We’ve always adored M., the rough-and-ready bistro on District VII’s Kertész utca that has been a member of our elite “Top 33″ club for the past year or so. The food is generally very good, the décor is charming…” (Chew.hu – a Hungarian gastronomy website).
It is like a pleasant downtown bistro, water carafes on the table, old-school brown wrapping paper used ingeniously for the design (it is really amazing to see how a market pen turns sheets of brown paper into a cozy interior), friendly staff – give it a try if you like quirky places, and artsy is your style. It’s on the Top 33 list of Chew.hu which is continually updating its ‘best of Budapest restaurants‘ list.
