Arquitecto Pitpit

Found inside one of the loveliest courtyard gardens in the city, enclosed by the Chamber of Hungarian Architects’ headquarters, Arquitecto Pitpit was called into being by the same family that gave us the renowned tapas restaurant Padron. Open from Tuesday to Saturday, this hidden culinary treasure awaits lovers of Spanish cuisine with sharing-sized portions of simple yet flavourful dishes (ranging from fried shrimp with aioli picante to oxtail stew), drinks inspired by the owners’ travels in the Iberian Peninsula, and a cheerful mood five days a week, a mere stone’s throw away from Kálvin Square and the National Museum.
