It's an old joke -- "The food's a disappointment." "So why do you keep going there?" "They give you so much of it!" -- but it perfectly sums up a lunch at the Tettye Vendéglõ this past week. Nothing particularly distinguished about the German recipes refracted through a Hungarian kitchen, nothing that raised their execution above that available in any middle-range restaurant. Such a shame... the setting is lovely, the waitstaff personable, the service excellent. But the food? Meh. I ploughed dutifully through half my platter of heavy noodles, soupy spinach-and-garlic sauce à la crème, and thin-pounded pork wrapped around farmer cheese and spinach... then pushed it away and asked for a go-box. Enough for two calorie-bomb meals but, again, not flavour-bomb ones. What if the noodles had been more slender, or thinner, and had been dressed only with butter and a bit of nutmeg? What if the cheese had had a bit of snap, or if a bit of lemon juice had been added to the filling? What looked so good on the menu was... stolid. Oh, well. You'll like this place if you're an indiscriminate and heavy feeder. One warning: What the menu calls "marrow" has nothing to do with osso bucco. It's brain -- as in what a table-mate had, a great dollop of chopped sautéed pork liver and brain, served with a fried egg on top and chips. No one ever accused the Germans of wasting bits of what used to be a pig!

It's a retro style, very simple but crowded, smelly place. You can try the traditional hungarian kitchen's dishes in a very big portion and high price.
For hungarians: It's like an average suburban restaurant with expensive and boring hungarian dishes.
For foreigners: Good but you can find better restaurant in Pécs....

The restaurant is located on the hill near the arboretum and big playground area. Food is excellent, service as well. Recommended also for the family with small kids.

This restaurant was recommended to me by the receptionist at the hotel I was staying at. I went there on my first night in Pecs and was so impressed I returned every night thereafter!
Yes, the decor is a bit '70's and the music's a little kitsch but that just added to the charm for me. The menu is available in German and English as well as Hungarian and the waiters were all multilingual as well. I had different meals each night and have to say that I didn't suffer any of the "brown gravy" dishes reported by others. The feast soup is one of the best I've ever had (beware of the chilli grinder - they're birds-eye chillis!) and the Chicken with apple, pear and blue cheese sauce was divine.

Right opposite are the Tettye ruins and there's a fantastic view over Pecs. Best of all is that a 3 course meal with wine and coffee came to an average of £10.50!! I wish I lived closer :-)
