We came here to have dinner and ordered the crispy duck and chicken paprikash. Both meals were delicious and the staff were very friendly and offered suggestions for our dessert. We had the traditional hungarian sponge cake which was so tasty! Would definitely recommend!More

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel where we were staying (which also owns it) and I was slightly skeptical. But the food was very good - often traditional Hungarian dishes but given a modern or lighter twist, without losing the taste!

Although I have read some good reports in TripAdvisor about this restaurant I must say I was quite disappointed. The food was just average (asparagus were terribly hard) and the service very slow. Not good value for money.
