Liszt Ferenc Square (10 min. walk from the apartment) is a pedestrian area in downtown Budapest, and is a popular going out area. Here you'll find a wide array of indoor and outdoor restaurants an cafes. They will serve you cheaper than for example Belcanto and Gundel, still the quality is high and the atmosphere is good. Especially in the summer, because then they all move their tables and chairs out to the square, and from early morning to late night, the street is full of life and people drinking, eating and having fun.
