We sat for 5 minutes and no one bothered to come to us so I went inside to get the menu. We waited 10 minutes then walked out!!

Really bad food,poor quality and bad service. Food wasn't looking and tasting fresh! Dirty place! If you are coming to visit Esztergom,choose another restaurant,all of them are better than this one! Me and my family were very disappointed! Such a shame for so lovely place!

While the food is average Hungarian fare, the decor and atmosphere is authentic. In the summer you can see the Danube river from the patio. In cooler weather they fire up the very authentic "kemence", wood furnace built out of clay, that gives a warm glow, especially after a few shots of the local Palinka. I make sure I visit... More

Very attractive, the place is full old kitchenware, but they just try to make the most out of being at a busy location. Unmotivated, uneducated staff, poor food quality, slow service.

Can't say anything about the food because I didn't eat there, but as a place to get out of the sun with a cool beer - when you've just been up to the basilica and you're waiting for the hydrofoil back to Budapest, say - it's perfect. Staff fine, decent lavatories. above all blessedly cool shade. The hydrofoil docks only... More

We were here with a group, we based our decision to eat here on the website. The place has a nice interior, giving you an idea about Hungarian traditional folk design. Food was just about OK - not spectacular. Restrooms ... OK. I should credit the staff with being most helpful though. Our local bus company cancelled on us due... More

This place is highly recommended by Frommer's and I have no idea why. The good part: the decoration, the rustic atmosphere and the very reasonable price. The bad part - the food (and this is what we came for, after all). The salad bar was OK minus. We then ordered some traditional dishes. Mine was chicken and dumplings - lot... More
