Balaton has been here for decades, and it remains a classic Magyar haunt thanks to its traditional menu, wooden, two-room interior and old-school waiters. The food is highly authentic, of the type your grandmother would have served (had you been raised in this part of the world). Specialties include roast duck, wild-boar stew, and bean soup. Prices are as cheap as you’ll find for such quality fare so centrally located, and that includes the wines.
