My girlfriend had the duck, I ate the goat cheese risotto. Both were excellent. We started with a local cheese platter, was also really nice. Good service as well. The decoration is a bit old school, like a Austrian stube. Local wine was nothing special.

The food was very good, mid price. What made this restaurant really stand out was the wonderful waiter. He helped us choose dishes following a friendly chat to ascertain what we like. Well worth looking for this restaurant, I would return.

We had just come from the kiraly Spa and were very tired. But it was a lovely venue, friendly staff and tasty food. Me and my 3 other friends shared some desserts and I took one bite from the chocolate soufflés and proceeded to order a second for just me. Special Kosonum to Roxana for the lovely service.

Went for a casual business dinner and was pleasantly surprised. While a small venue, the food was superb and quite progressive for traditional Hungarian food. Reasonable priced. Well worth the visit.

Being in Budapest with a business trip I checked Tripadvisor, as usually, for finding a place for dinner, around my hotel. Being high ranked, I choose Mondragora. Absolutely very good choice. Fine food and very good service, together with decent prices. I will come back with pleasure.

This gem of a find is off the tourist trail on the Buda side, a short walk from the Regnum Residence Hotel on Kacsa utca. It was previously a jazz club but now offers a delicious menu combining a la carte and traditional Hungarian dishes beautifully presented in a relaxed rustic setting. No starched tablecloths here but the informal setting... More

Original, delicious and fairly priced. Lovely staff and up-to-date cuisine that mixes the traditional Hungarian style with some of the latest techniques. Interesting regional wines. Warm and cosy atmosphere. Details worth discovering.

Thank Jose W

This restaurant was founded ten years ago. We have continously developped during years, always adopting our Guest's needs. At first our palce was operated like a club and we transformed it to a bistro style restaurant step by step whitout loosing the kind and welcoming atmosphere, what makes us very rare in these days. Our goal is if You visit us once, You will partake fascinating hospitality. So next time we can welcome You like a regular guest.

We believe that hospitality only worth doing with soul!
