Staff friendly I suppose but a bit pushy. Yes they have a vast selection of beers but you liver would fall if you had to drink them all to find one you liked,and having found it would you remember? Silly idea with not even novelty value.

This place i visited many times, in the first place for tasting great beers together with a small bite. The vaulted cellar makes the atmosphere complete to gather with friends,

The conept is a Belgian beer bar set in an underground vaulted room. The beer list is extensive and varied, but the food is average with a lot of Belgian classics missing from the menu. The overall experience is OK but not more than that, and at this price you get much higher quality elsewhere in Budapest.

This restaurant was very close to our accommodation so decided to give it a go. Unfortunately it was a Friday night and it was packed (did. Not think of booking) so had to each near the front entrance so a bit cold but the good made up for it. Service was excellent wine very good and the Hungarian food excellent.

We stayed in Budapest nearby this restaurant so had read up on it before arriving. Visited twice during our 4 day stay - food was delicious, Belgian beer choice exhaustive and service excellent. Recommend.

My husband and I drank here for a few nights and the beer selection is plentiful and delicious. After checking the reviews for dinner (and great service 3 nights in a row), we decided to eat dinner here with my parents. It was beyond delicious! I had the #24-chicken, my Mom had #23-chicken with ham, husband had sirloin tips and... More

Very friendly staff, amazing food and numerous amounts of different beers (7% +) I admit I stuck to the wine as I had loads of steps to climb to my hotel, didn't want to fall up them, definitely recommend

Staying in District I / Buda

Neighbourhood Profile
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 events attended by the royal family and was the chosen place for the coronation of Franz Josef, one of the Hungarian Habsburg kings. Having admired the palace and the church, a visit to Buda will be unforgettable by the stunning and memorable panorama over Pest offered by the seven towered Fishermen’s Bastion.
