We knew this place was supposed to be an excellent choice for fish, but we (a group of 9) were very impressed to discover that many, many other items on their menu are sooo good. Fish soup, veal soup, turkey stew soup, veal goulash, oven-cooked stuffed cabbage, paprikas and of course the legendary Pista Danko's violin - everything was tasty.... More

I have been visiting this restaurant for about 12 years. Fish soup is good, but has dropped a lot in quality within the few years. Their restaurant in Budapest is a better choice.

This is almost a stew, rich in fish and vegetables.... More

We stopped there for a short lunch. We had foie gras and vanilla pancakes. The pancakes were awsome: filled with cottage chees, raisins and covered in vanilla sauce but the foie gras was not the best i had ever eaten.

I ordered goulas Veal with noodles, but I received pork meat very hard to be cut. Very poor pork goulas paid as a veal goulas,... More

A very good choice of a restaurant if you are a meat or a fish guru. It is said among local people that this is the 2nd best place you would want to visit if you are looking for the famous Hungarian Fisherman's soup. In case you are allergic to fish you will be offered with the variety of options... More
