Right off the bat, we have two places to recommend at Római Part, on the Buda riverfront a short journey north from downtown. The first spot is Két Rombusz, which we were happy to visit a little earlier this summer, and were amply impressed – the terrain is spacious, has ten outdoor fire pits where we can ignite wood (which the place provides), and we can get a stew pot, grill cart, and skewers for free. Naturally, we have to bring our own ingredients, and it’s only fair to buy refreshments at the bar to accompany our smoky snacks on the spot. The place’s pair of two-story buses, which make Két Rombusz rather easy to spot, have a unique charm and pleasant rural atmosphere that is even better in the back garden area, which can be rented for larger events. For weekends, it’s best to book in advance.
Another promising place in the area is Golyós (“Ball”); this family-friendly open-air bar has a reason for its unique choice of name, but more about that later! We can use the barbecue here as well, or cook for free in our own or borrowed stew pot. Just like at Két Rombusz, we have to provide the ingredients, while it is heartily encouraged that we purchase all drinks at the bar here. Now, we can look into the origin of Golyós’s name: we find the answer to this riddle at the petanque court, since the French ball game is rather popular around here – the place even organizes tournaments! As a side note, the Saturday evening “menu” is a retro disco.
Dürer Kert, located across the street from City Park, has been a popular concert venue for a while, and is now becoming an increasingly popular grill-party venue, as well. There are two fire pits in the inner courtyard that can be reserved (preferably well in advance), so that groups can cook a delicious dinner there in a borrowed stew pot. For this, we also receive firewood, but if we prefer charcoal, we can also choose a grill. In both cases, we must pay a 10,000-forint deposit and 2,500 HUF rental fee – but the colorful chairs, nice shade, and pleasant atmosphere are included for free.
