I went here probably 50 times for dinner. The interior is very nice. The dishes are among the better in Budapest, while price-quality is good. The great thing I appreciated is a change of a part of menu on a weekly basis. Always a surprise and seldom a disappointment.

Visited this restaurant after seeing the great reviews. We were fortunate enough to get the last available table - a lot of tables had been reserved so would advise booking beforehand. The restaurant was lovely with a really nice atmosphere. Staff were very helpful, our waiter recommended a beautiful red wine which went perfectly with our food. The food was... More

This restaurant was recommended by a local and it was definitely worth a try. Warm atmosphere and a good choice of courses. If it is still on the menu, you must try the chocolate soufflé with chili and cherry sauce: really worth the 15 minutes wait. I would certainly eat there again.

I've that lucky to visit this restaurant several times and have always received warm welcome and delicious meals! The waiters are nice and try to care with everyone even when they are in a rush. I could not make a bad decision with any of the food yet, really good wines and amasing desserts. Highly recommended.

While working for 6 months in Budapest for a film production we made reservations at this restaurant at the recommendation of the General Manager of the Fraser Residence Budapest (being one of his favorite). We walked to the restaurant from the Residence and had a very relaxing walk in the evening. I'm glad the GM recommended this restaurant. Very nice... More

The menu is very interesting, and we newer can decide easily what to have because it all looked so good :) A super restaurant perfect for an unhurried sample is... More

We came here for dinner. We ordered grilled squid with chilli olive oil as tapas, which was quite tasty, a Goulash soup which was homely. Then my partner had Mangalitsa pork stew while I had chicken paprika stew, parsley dumplings, cucumber salad with sour cream for our mains, the chicken, which to my surprise came in drumsticks, both mains were...

Food below average. Soggy salad, cold shrimps, waiters are more interested in themselves than the customers. Waiter didn't ask a single word why food isn't eaten. Never again.

This was the absolute best meal I had in all of Budapest. The restaurant is quite charming and definitely requires a reservation to ensure a table. I ordered the Roasted Duck Breast with Pumpkin Risotto and Forest Mushrooms. My meal with two glasses of wine came out to be roughly 16 euros. I would recommend this to anyone going to... More

On a quiet street tucked away is this gem of a restaurant, great service, lovely atmosphere but most of all excellent food. Got to try a variety of dishes which left us full and eager to try again.
