Really everything was great, sea-bream was very nice. Gazpacho with prawn was best ever. Desert was excellent. Service was over the top great, 3 different people waiting on our table. Very reasonably priced, great value.

Satisfaction can take many forms, here it is about flavour, texture and balance rather than being about big portions of home cooked food. Great attentive service by people who obviously love what they are serving together with the great food they served made this a...More

This was the highlight of my trip; had the rabbit stew (not really a stew though) but was out of this world. Service is impeccable and the setting is fantastic ... not to be missed

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
