Visited this restaurant after hotel recommendation. Ordered duck confit and chicken paprika. The waiter was inattentive and bordering on rude. Both dishes were poorly presented. The duck was so tough it was certainly not confit and didn't have any flavour - hard to do with...More

We visited here twice in the past week as our hotel was only around the corner. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was lovely. Portion sizes were huge and it was good value for money. I would recommend a visit.

From the outside it's quite easy to walk right past this restaurant, and actually the interior isn't the smartest in Budapest either but the service and food is really good. It does look like a bit of a 70's throw-back, just needing some rattan-covered Chianti...More
