The food was very good. The absolute star of the show was the quail and my partner's liver starter. Came back for a second meal which was just as good. Would highly recommend

A very friendly restaurant with an amazing pianist. The food was outstanding. It cost just over £100 for two main courses, two sweets and a bottle of local wine. We would definitely return here again.

We stayed in the Pest-Buda hotel and ate in a number of local restaurants; my recollection is that this was more expensive than other local restaurants. This is a lovely intimate restaurant with a courtyard at the back. We both had soup starters, quite delicious...More

District I / Buda
The historical center to a city with a multifarious
and intricate past, Buda has some of the most
outstanding buildings in Europe and an enviable
natural landscape with stunning views onto the Danube.
Centered around the Royal Palace, it provides a
glimpse into the golden years of the Austro-Hungarian
empire and the lives led by the aristocracy at the
time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many
