This is a beautiful restaurant with a wonderful menu offering of local and traditional dishes. The service was excellent. Would highly recommend.

Chose this restaurant because of the location. It looks nice but that's all. The typical hungarian soup as a main was awful, they've served it nearly cold, the meat in the soup wasn't good at all and although it was a main course it wasn't enough to get full. The waiter even saw I had left all the meat and... More

I wanted to give this restaurant an applause for providing a special menu for vegetarians! My experience in Budapest, as in so many other places in Central Europe, was that I had to ask for an adapation of a meat dish on the menu. Here upon my inquiry the waiter gave me a special printed menu with a choice of... More

We ate here on our first night in Budapest. If you are staying in the Hilton, as we were, the restaurant is only a five minute stroll away. Good menu, lots of choice - both local and 'international' selections. The food was well presented and well prepared. The venison carpaccio was good, the suckling pig risotto even better. Service was... More

Although the menu showed classical international dishes as well as local Hungarian ones, the chef's twist added a great local touch. The carpaccio with fiis gras, the special pasta, the huge porc schnitzel were great. Service is acceptable.

We decided to try this Michelin "Gourmand" rated restaurant on Buda for our last dinner in the city, and we were very disappointed. Service was surprisingly lackluster for such a supposedly upscale place. After we arrived at the restaurant early on a Tuesday evening, several servers simply stood around and bantered with each other, rather than greet us. Once we... More

I am shocked by the food and service at this restaurant. The waiters were rude. The bread was stale (apparantly home made) without any selection of butter/oil/balsamic. The main of chicken paprika was horrific. Undercooked, tasteless and bland. I struggled to hand over my money at the end after such an awful meal. Do not come here any time soon... More

The only good thing I have to say about this restaurant is that the Manager is friendly and welcoming. Its a shame that the same cant be said about our waiter who looked as though I had committed a crime when I asked if we could move inside the restaurant to eat. The food was bland and lukewarm and ridiculously... More

I traveled through 8 different European countries for business and "had to" go to different high class restaurants. This was one of the best experience of the whole trip taking the price, ambient, service and food into account. Very nice staff with very good English skills, good wine recommendations, really know their business. The ambient is amazing, you go out... More

Great spot for well prepared and presented Hungarian food in a modern setting. Outdoor seating area in the street which is perfect for catching the afternoon sunshine.
