About Magna Hungaria

Hungarian restaurant in West End

Simply decorated but cosy and welcoming, Magna Hungaria is on West Maitland Street in Edinburgh’s West End. White-washed walls are decorated with pictures of Hungary while the bar has been made to look like a forest cottage. Combine it all with a wooden wagon wheel chandelier and the overall effect is pleasantly rustic. Couples, lunching office workers and home-sick Hungarians are all welcome.

Traditional Hungarian cooking

Open from breakfast – try the full Hungarian – through to lunch and dinner, Magna Hungaria serves traditional, home-style dishes that your Hungarian gran would be happy to produce. Interesting, hearty soups; fresh salads – many of them pickled; pancakes and platters play the supporting roles for main courses of stews, casseroles, goulash and roasted meat and fish.

If you feel the need for a plate of kárpáti borzaska, or fried chicken breast mixed with shredded potato, you know where to come. From the Hungarian speciality of lángos, a topped and filled deep-fried flatbread, to more familiar Stroganoff dishes, the menu at Magna Hungaria ensures that no-one leaves hungry.
