Went there with my hubby last weekend for a quick drink as it was raining heavily. Had a coke and lemonade, got the bill for 1540huf including 12.5% service charge - obviously no 'service' as such was provided. Anyway, paid 1700huf as did not have 1540huf in hand and the waitress just disappeared with my money without giving any change... More

We really liked this restaurant. The portions are very big and satisfying. Try the Gulash soup of course!

Not attentive or friendly at all. Took forever to take our order for drinks after we sat down and it wasn't busy. Food was very bland and boring. Husband asked for chips instead of potatoes and they said they didn't have any. I had the chicken wrap/tortilla which consisted of about 4 very small pieces of chicken and was barely... More

My husband and I visited Budapest and loved thr restaurant. The food was very tasty, we took 2 meat dishes and loved it and even took dessert afterwards and it was great too. The staff were very friendly and spoke English (which is not obvious apparently)

The food really had a gourmet touch. I had the duck. My wife had a steak, pesto pasta with foie Gras that was superlative. I would have expected the price to do double what it was. Great meal! Service was great. Nice ambience in this sidewalk cafe. I highly recommend.

We had a nice dinner in this restaurant. We ordered a Hungarian menu. The dishes where simple but good, and the staff was polite and welcoming. Prices are in line with other touristic places in Budapest; maybe a bit lower.

We went in for a mulled wine. Talking to the waiter asked then about the menu and if any gluten free options - he went to check with the chef which is very reassuring and then confirmed a few options on the menu - I had Hungarian goolash and tasted amazing ( so good I had this on both trips)...

The waiter was very slow despite the restaurant was almost empty. We waited for bill 15 or 20 minutes.

Nothing special. The food is average at best. We did not read the review. Rookie mistake - but we were in a hurry. Service was fine.

Staying in District VII / Jewish Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.
