Food was delicious, service wasn’t good. They were in a hurry to take our order however after placing the main meals, the waiters didn’t ask again if we needed anything further. Disappointing.

Spent less than £35 for two courses for two, a few of beers, a cocktail and a cider. Food didn't blow me away, but was nice. I enjoyed the side accompaniments more than the main part, but overall, would recommend. Nice restaurant layout too.

Went to this restaurant with my sister and had the lunch menu (soup, main dish, and dessert), which costed only 390 ft per person. Everything tasted nice, but the service was extremely nice, and speaking English was no problem.

The ambiance, food, and service were all exceptional. Their goulash was the best we've had in the city. I had their baked trout and it was seasoned well and cooked to perfection. I would highly recommend this restaurant to others!

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
