Went there for a lunch. Had a table on a nice terrasse. Portions are big, food is fresh and tasty. The restaurant itself is really huge and furnished in a traditional manner.

Came here for dinner. The waiter wasn't very nice. The food was average. I got the gulash and my partner got the cheese burger. We both thought it was all pretty average. Wouldn't recommend it. Also, there is an inside area for smokers and smokers...More
