You do not have to be a train nerd to appreciate this, but if you are .. Jackpot! An odd but fun concept to hang out with good friends, eat some food or just drink a few beers while reading about Hungarian trains. Friendly staff.

We found this restaurant by chance and returned twice. It was so different from the many other city establishments.The service so helpful and friendly and food excellent. Value for money too. The decor is delightful, cosy yet air conditioned during a very hot spell.
