The worst service ever!! The two girls that served us were so miserable the food was good but the service ruined our stay. Then they do you with a service charge at the end which was not deserved.

Avoid this restaurant! They are trying to add 15 % to your bill. There are no notes concerning this in the menu. This is just ripping off the tourists!More

Popped in for a late lunch. Looks and feels like a French neighbourhood cafe and on that basis, the decor is nothing special. The food however was very good - all 5 of the guests in my party had different things from Veal to Goulash...More

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
