Really lovely meal. great wines and some great food. It was maybe missing a little something you'd maybe get in a British Michelin starred place but the meal was extremely tasty and very reasonably priced. Will certainly go again

Friendly waiters and very nice food.... I think that it's quite crowded and very loud which detracts from the intimate experience... Food very good.... Scallops with balsamic caviar and cauliflower purée to start as a special. We both had pork mains and we shared a cheese board and a dessert. It's certainly worth a visit but to me not quite...

Visited family and friends in Hungary. I knew it was a long shot to get a reservation, yet when we knocked on the door, it was 11:30 am and the place opens at noon, yet we tried anyway. What have we to loose since we're here anyway. Needless to say, there was a cancellation and and few were int 9... More

The place got their Michelin start in 2014 and this was the major motivation to try it. I have heard mixed reviews, some people saying that it was over-hyped, so I wanted to try it with friends. The location is extremely convenient, the interior design looks nice. We got a table next to the restrooms, where we could all the... More

Very casual, diverse place for a Michelin restaurant. Some folks in suits, others in t-shirts. Not very touristy, which was nice. Good vibe. Only shortcoming was the lack of diversity on the wine list. It's all Hungarian wines. My wife and I tried four of the roughly 15 red wines by the glass. They were all fun to try but,... More

Simply without a doubt the best restaurant in Budapest !! It might be the best one I ever visited. We had the 5 course menu, you can see in the pictures. Each dish was better than the one before. The service was amazing! No wonder this restaurant holds a Michelin star. If you are in Budapest and you're a person... More

We tried this place for lunch, because it was impossible to get an evening table without a reservation. A smaller casual establishment, it has a beautiful bar, great service, and masterful dishes served as artistic presentations. The dishes speak for themselves. We shared wines by the glass, chosen by the staff, that were Hungarian high-end favorites and complimented our dishes... More

One of the Michelin star restaurants. Worth every penny and by the way the prices are very reasonable. The service is excellent, the food delicious, the selection of wine wide. Oh, and absolutely leave some space for the dessert.

Excellent food. Interesting flavours and everything is very tasteful. The reason it's four and not five stars is the entrance/leaving space, which virtually doesn't exit. It is very crowded, you can't enter the restaurant and place your coat there properly. Waiters are very disorganised, running up and down. Good management is missing.

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
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 and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
