We went today for lunch. The food was good and it was free of flavour enhancers, glutamato and other artificial things. I highly recommend this place if you like high quality of food.

We had a lovely meal here and loved the decor and atmosphere. Deservedly packed out on a Monday night which did mean although our starters and mains were on time, we had to wait ages for dessert. But I would definitely recommend it.

The service is disappointing for a place like this. As much as I love the interior, and as I appreciated the nice ideas for the menu and the good quality of the ingredients - the people who were serving us were unprofessional, the uninterested staff was chatting and laughing loudly at the bar without looking out for the customers.

This restaurant was amazing. I really enjoyed the duck that I had and found the atmosphere of the place to be really nice as well. Prices were good and the staff was very helpful. I think it's an excellent restaurant and would highly recommend it.

The venue is better than the drinks! Great outdoor bar, wonderful atmosphere in summer. Drinks are ok, nothing special, but the vibe is great.

Loved this place: the menu is around half vegetarian and half meat - a perfect match for a couple who is one of each. All dishes were sublime, really tasty. The service was fantastic too - very friendly and attentive without being over-bearing. Loved it and can't wait to go back.

The food here was delicious and gluten free options were labelled clearly which gave me confidence ordering. Good wine selection & great atmosphere, even on a Wednesday evening. Food was fresh and full of flavour.

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.
