Cold, wet Sunday, restaurant was empty, we ate from the tourist menu. The goulash soup was SO good. No complaints at all about the food or service. I recommend this restaurant.

Stopped here for a quick drink. The waitress was friendly and drinks were fine. A little expensive for what we ordered. Decided not to stop for food as nothing on the menu we fancied.
