Nice decor, really fast and efficent service and prices of the food are easy. If you want something really special this is not your place. If you want same basic and tasty food, this can be your place.

Enjoyed a lovely dinner here. Travelling on my own and was really well looked after. The food was delicious. The goulash and the pork were fantastic. Excellent wine recommendations and great service, without being intrusive. Relaxed, cosy atmosphere. Worth a visit

This was the nicest meal we had in Budapest. The staff and ambience were extremely welcoming. The food was a joy. Beautifully cooked and some delicious vegetables which in Budapest are often missing. Excellent Hungarian wine too- thank you. Janos our waiter was perfect too.

We stumbled upon the restaurant on a cold snowy Sunday afternoon, and had a great late lunch with lovely wine. The restaurant was nicely appointed and casual but still with style and there was a great mix of tourists, like ourselves, and Hungarians out for...More
