A tremendous staff across the board from host, servers and sommelier. Very attentive and there to make a pleasurable dining experience. Most helpful in selections for dinner - though I thought the goulash soup was fairly tasty, it was not anything special. However every other course was incredible. Beyond that, as advertised, the wine is incredible and they help choose... More

My wife was very content with her local pig dish,... More

Their dishes are dearing and interesting combinations but something is lacking in the... More

The sommelier was brilliant, the local wine I had was great...I wish I could remember the name of it. Friendly staff, great services and food and wine to match. For... More

This restaurant was recommended by a friend, and it turned out to be one of the best meals I've ever eaten. The food was impeccable, with superbly cooked duck breast for the main course. The starter was a foie gras taster course, which was incredible. Morally repugnant of course, but delicious. My favourite part of the meal was the wine... More

Had a great overall experience. A very warm staff , took a lot of time to recommend the best dishes based on my likes. Paired awesome Hungarian wines that made the pork dishes even better. I liked the way every staff member was attentive and helpful. Pork loin wrapped in bacon was awesome.
