Austin Restaurants

European Bistro

Updated 02/04/2013

Fodor's Review

The service here can be scatterbrained (though things have been improving), but occasional lapses are forgiven, since this two-story Central European restaurant in Central Texas is a charmer—an authentic slice of the Old World in downtown Pflugerville, about 15 mi north of Austin. Co-owner Anni Zovek is a true champion of her native Hungarian cuisine, and a delightful hostess. Her sister Piroska whips up some of the most decadent desserts this side of Vienna, and the

unusual soups, such as sour cherry, are also worth trying. Main courses of chicken páprikas, pan-fried catfish, and all manner of schnitzels and wursts are reliable comfort food. The restaurant also serves Czech, Russian, Polish, and Armenian specialties. Hungarian, German, and Romanian wines are available, as are Czech and German beers.

So tasty

While there's quite a bit of mediocre German food in the Hill Country, European Bistro's Hungarian food is fabulous. I love their beet salad! Be sure to save room for dessert.
