Our family were staying for a weekend just up the road and decided to "eat local", rather than hitting the town. The place appeared a bit glitsy and "jazz bar" from the outside, but once seated we were in for a treat. Two musicians played background music, whilst we relaxed into the calm atmosphere and enjoyed the ambience and impressive... More

I went there based on the reviews on tripadvisor. I expected a slightly bigger place with live jazz, but that night there was only a piano player. He was alright but my expectations were a little higher - maybe my fault. The staff was friendly - even though they had some difficulties preparing the drinks. If you stay in the... More

Nice interior, fine foods and perfect service. Absolutely cosy place. We do recommend it, our favorite restaurant in Budapest. Sometimes you can enjoy live piano music and the fire in the chimney.

We were looking for somewhere to eat one lunchtime while we were in Budapest last June. We kept on walking until we saw what looked like a restaurant. My husband cannot cope with cigarette smoke, so we really appreciated the civilised air conditioned indoors accommodation. We were well looked after by the staff but when we asked for the wine...

Pretty restaurant, good ambience, excellent food. The blonde gentleman who started waiting on our table was past from rude, he was actually aggressive. We faced a delay on the arrival of some members of our party, due to health reasons, which obviously caused them not seating the maximum of people for the night, however ABSOLUTELY nothing justifies the rudeness and...

I contacted Mezzo as I knew my husband would like it but being coeliac myself, it is difficult to just eat anywhere. I explained the problem and the restaurant were understanding and reassuring in advance emails. On arrival the Aires suggested that they could amend most dishes but recommended exactly the ones I would have chosen! So, the beef carpaccio... More

Friendly, premium quality and still affordable. A good place for a quiet lunch during the week. Not fancy or glossy, but it is what it promises to be. The interior is a bit old fashioned but nice. Waiters are OK but not great. Good value for money.
