- The Horgasztanya (Fisherman's Camp) restaurant has been a feature of the Buda bank of the mighty Danube for as long as anyone can remember. It stubbornly refuses to change with the times and continues to make some of the best fish dishes around. A dingy wooden interior is not the Horgasztanya's high spot and should really only be considered if you cannot find a single free table on the narrow terrace which clings to one wall of the building. Guests sit almost in the road, with a flimsy fence keeping the traffic away.The venue is popular with tourists who come across it when promenading along the bank of the river beneath the walls of Buda Castle. The fish soup is still considered to be one of the best in town and is served in a dainty black cauldron. Trout is the best bet amongst the river fish on offer, as Hungarian lake fish tend to be lazy and fatty. Meat eaters can try the beef in a rich Stroganoff sauce but the fish here is really too tasty to miss. Finish off with a wicked Hungarian pudding; Somloi Galuska, a mixture of sponge cake, cream, rum and chocolate. On a hot summer evening this all goes down well with a bottle of rose from Sopron.
