Service was poor / non existent, apart from getting the bill paid. Orders all wrong, food was terrible, and over priced. Just go somewhere else. I can't even be bothered to make this review humorous - as it wasn't even laughable.

During our one week stay in Budapest, we ate here twice. Love this pedestrian only street with its small treed park in the middle. Seems so removed from the city noise. The outdoor seating area was lovely and cozy with soft lighting, portable heaters and throw blankets available for those chillier evenings. We tried the stuffed pork loin, the schnitzel,... More

The burger was burned so was the bun. They took a very long time to bring the food. The staff was not really happy nor smiling and when we complained about the burned food he just said ok! The steak my friend requested was medium and what he got was rare. Total waste of money. The only thing good about... More

Very near the House of Horrors and the Book Cafe (both which I've also reviewed), you'll find this lovely side street, Liszt Ferenc ter. It is a pedestrian street lined with restaurants, one beside another on both sides of the street, all with outdoor dining. The decision on where to eat was intimidating. Finally we just picked Cafe Pausa. We... More

Nothing special at this place. Reasonable prices and the food was fairly OK. I ordered ribs and they were little disappointment, all fat no meat. Service was OK too. I think there is a lot of better places in this street tough.

Cosy setting, friendly staff. Shame we were here during bad weather (you can shelter from the rain), but it's located in a nice part of the city. Good place for a drink and some lunch to have a little break from seeing the city.

Despite all the negative reviews, we thought this place was just fine for a hot August evening. Summers in Budapest can get be sweltering and good restaurant cooling can be the difference between a pleasant experience and misery. A number of Liszt Ferenc tér's wall to wall restaurants have mist fans to cool the outside seating - we found Cafe... More

Ate here with a group of friends, weather took a turn for worst and was asked to go inside restaurant but it was "like an oven" inside, so opted to sit the storm out !!!! Food ordered, took a while to arrive, was satisfactory. When asked to pay the bill we all chipped in and money was checked several times... More

We at here as a group of 11, quite a long wait for food, quite expensive for Budapest. After handing over or payment before leaving, they came running after us claiming we paid short. We didn't...... of course we had to pay the rest. If you must eat here, and I recommend you don't as the places next door and... More
