The location looks great. The waiters are friendly and the food is fantastic. Every time in Budapest I go there and enjoy the hungarian Pörkölt and Palacsinta.

The cuisine here is Hungarian at its best. It is somewhat expensive at night when there is a live gypsy quartet. but money well spent.the food was exceptional the service impecable,. All in all an excellent experience and highly recommended.
