I really love this restaurant. I think it is even the best one in Helsingborg! Great, delicious schnitzels and really tasty Hungarian wine. Very stylish interior design and Rod Stewart music are things which left in my memory for very long time.

We came here with the family during a small holiday in October. Checking Tripadvisor this restaurant came up as a very well rewarded. The restaurant is operated by a Hungarian couple, she serves and he cooked. The food was absolutely spot on, but also the service and friendliness were outstanding. Very nice place to go!

We came here on a date night on a monday when many restaurants in Helsingborg are closed. We had walked past this place before and decided to give it a try. We were not at all disappointed. My wife had the goulash, and it was extremely flavourful and a hint of spicy. I had the Pusta Schnitzel, which probably was... More

Really a lot of food for the money. If you like Schnizels this really is a great place. If you plan to try schnizel for the first time, this is the right place. Smiling and serviceminded owners/waitors

Travelling alone I visited The Merry Widow on a Wednesday evening. It was pretty small, feeling like I was in someone's living room, and about half full. I was greeted by a very friendly lady who I understand runs the restaurant with her husband chef. I ordered the schnitzel which seems to be highly rated by others. It was very... More

I can recommend any of the four schnitzels on the menu here. There are more typical Hungarian dishes such as goulash which sounded delicious but I chose the pork schnitzel (which was enormous!) which came served with fried potatoes and tomato salad, at a price of 175 SEK. I was not disappointed in my choice! I would certainly visit this... More

Real authentic food, schnitzels beyond your imagination, splendid tokaji and very friendly staff (owner). Always a must when I'm working in Helsingborg.

For someone who wants to take a break from mainstream hamburgers and fish dishes, this restaurant will be a very good choice. Here, Hungarian dishes are served in a very warm living-room setting with very hospitable hosts. Everything is delicious and the feeling of being home is overwhelming.

The unassuming exterior doesn't do this fabulous restaurant credit, but inside, ahhhh. The ambience, the service and the food will knock you out. My wife and I had the best Wiener Schnitzel we have eaten since living in Bavaria and traveling through Austria. The portions were manly. The desserts were so attractive we skipped appetizers so we could enjoy them... More
