  • The rectangular square is located between Kiraly utca and Andrassy utca in the Centre of Budapest. It is named after the famous Austrian composer, including the bronze statue and the Liszt Academy in liberty style of the second half of the nineteenth century (note that on façade dominates another statue of him). It's also a favorite place of nightlife, lounging by the presence of gardens with trees as well as restaurants and bars with live music. No wonder if you encounter so many musicians and tourists.

  • Nice location, good service , ok food we order chicken breast Caesar salad and the chicken was dry over cook
  • Food was nice but large groups have to sit outside. Isn't the best value restaurant in the area.
  • Beautiful park and gardens. So many trees in Budapest.
  • Very nice pedestrian square with many cafes and restaurants. Too bad dogs aren't allowed here
  • Place has a very good mood and you feel the history. I recommend the symphonic concert as well in the Liszt Ferenc academy
