Szent Jupat must be the patron saint of those who like to gorge themselves on meat after a night out drinking as it is always filled with hiccuping youth and/or startled tourists. A take away facility is available on the street around the corner. The decor in this semi-cellar bar is all brown wood booths, purely functional for chowing down. Each table sits four, although six small ones could squeeze in - but probably not out again after a meal here. Szent Jupat is legendary for its gigantic portions of meat. Do not attempt both a starter and a main course unless you haven't eaten in months. The emphasis is on fried meats, breaded and fried mushrooms and there is an enormous mixed grill for two that takes up the whole table.
Szent Jupat is a great place for a student with a little extra cash to go out for a meal, or a budget tourist. The menu item most worth trying is the "Bogracs Gulyas" not just bcause it's delicious and economic but sadly today in Budapest its hard to find a good gulyas soup. Outiside of the soup there are many dishes towering with meat and for good value however lately I believe the quality has gone down. As someone said earlier the menus are in english as well however every dish is named with a stlye like "Pork Medallions Hunter Style" underneath they don't write what hunterstyle, dubarry style or any of them mean so you have to ask the waiter what half the menu is and thats when you see the real Budapest serivice attitude, and if you try this in english not only will they become bothered but you will end up nodding and smiling pretending to understand them. Still if you are a tourist in town and not looking to go out anywhere fancy or a student then its still one of the first places I recommend. If you really want to save money they own a place next door with cheap breaded and fried foods where you can stand and eat but the prices are truly amazing. If you don't speak Hungarian or do and aren't extremely polite you will get a bit of attitude but it doesn't stop me from coming back.
VERY NICE GOULAS SOUP,BUT I EXPECTED THE FOOD WAS MUCH BETTER, SINCE I CHOSE THIS RESTAURANT BY THE REVIEWS I READ IN THIS SITE.
ANYWAY, I SUPPOSE THAT THE DISHES WE SELECTED WERE NOT THE BEST CHOICE IN THIS RESTURANT..
This is one of THE most amazing restuarants in Budapest. My firsy visit to Hungary I wen tto the Szent Jupat. Wow its pretty. You gotta go there. Meat, meat, meat. And if ya don't like tartar sauce on yur salad. Tell em. I made that mistake. Have fun. It's a great place!
I've been to this restaurant several times over the past ten-years. I don't think I have ever finished a meal because of the huge size of the portions. They have some of the best goulas soup that you can find. Try the Szent Jupat mixed grill for two or the Budapest beef tenderloin. The portions of fried cheese and fried mushrooms are gigantic! If you like sauces, try their special tarter sauce
There will be someone working who speaks english, so language should not be a problem here. Menu's are listed in english and german as well as in Magyar for the language-challenged. Prices are very good on the entire menu--eating here need'nt break you financially.
I've been to Hungary several times and every time, I make sure to go to Szent Jupat's. Whenever I go with friends who have never been there before, the constant question is "when are we going to that place with the wooden plates again?" Never fails. Huge menu, all of it excellent. After ten or so trips, I still haven't ordered the same thing twice. Can't wait for my next trip so I can go there again. Short walk from Mozskva Ter metro station (Red line).
Szent Jupat's slogan should be the Hungarian translation of \"Mmmmm...meat.\"

I lived in Budapest for about 10 months and Szent Jupat was by far the restaurant I visited most frequently. Be ready for gigantic portions of meat (beef, venison, pork, you name it) resting upon huge piles of potatoes and/or rice and sauce (my favorite meal was the Brassoi Aproprecsenye - it's been a few years, so that might be spelled wrong - kind of a spicy pork potato hash kind of thing). Szent Jupat has the potential to fill many roles in your travel experience. If you're on a tight budget, the food is very inexpensive and the truly massive portions make it so you won't have to eat again for a week (indeed, my friends and I used to challenge each other as to whether we could eat a whole plate of Szent Jupat food, and when the inevitable failure occured, we would say, "Szent Jupat kicked my ass again."). Szent Jupat is open late, and is the perfect place for a 2pm "drunk food" run (it is right off of the 4/6 tram/bus, making it easy to get to in an inebriated state). And sometimes, you just want some good, nonsense Hungarian food with a half litre of beer, and Szent Jupat fills that bill nicely too. This is a great, great restaurant.
