Very cosy and nice cafe/bar with friendly staff and a good selection of different drinks. Had a good glass of red wine and a cider, only there for drinks, so can not comment on the food. But would definitely recommend.

This is a great place to unwind, especially in the summer when you can sit outside. The people are always friendly, service is good, the food is tasty ... a lovely unhurried place to meet friends or just chill.

We went in with my bf for a drink. Service and the bar seemed to be nice, although they forgot to bring us another round of water we ordered. When I wanted to pay the waiter charged us 1000HUF extra and I didn't get any receipt. Not worth it.

Went with my sister after someone recommended the pörkölt there. I know my pörkölt believe me, this one is exceptional: the way it was stewed, the meat was perfectly cooked, the sauce was the way it was always meant to be and not to mention the nokedli (side) perfectly seasoned with dill.

Just had a wonderful staying at this lovey place. The waiter(unfortunately I don't know his name) was extremely polite and treated us so well. Food is nice and fresh. One thing was missing for me, music from the background. Thanks for the nice hospitality.
