Over staffed, the staff decided it was more important to stand around talking and laughing then serving the people in the restaurant which was paying a PREMIUM for begin there.

We’d been intending to eat at the Curry House for my partner’s birthday but poor service and lack of a decent-priced bottle of wine (they no longer serve those on the drinks card, the cheapest bottle now being almost HUF 5,000) led us to Stex which we’d noticed on our first day. We arrived without a reservation, but the waiter... More

On my way from the airport I asked the cab driver if they know a good place around my hotel. He recommended Stex, which was just around the corner. The place is large, but somehow manage to be charming, the decor is interesting and the history of the place recounted on the menu is fun. The gulyas soup was excellent,... More
