I had a good time at Spirit Restaurant and Club, until the check came. He informed me that it was cash only, but it said Visa and Mastercard on the door. I felt slightly cheated. All in all, the food was wonderful and the service was great. Not sure if I will go back again though.

The restaurant is located just 100 m from the busy tourist street but it's very different to most of the restaurants in Vaci Utca. The Spirit has a cosy atmosphere with live music in the rustic brick interior. The service is perfect, friendly, helpful and always there without beeing to much. The food however is nothing special, but it's notering... More

We arrived here early and I must say the staff were incredibly helpful by recommending wines to go with the dishes that we ordered. Both my husband and I ordered a steak, I ordered a small steak but my husband (eyes to big for the belly) ordered the large steak and struggled to finish it but it was just cooked... More

First, you must distinguish "menu" and "a la carte" in this restaurant. "Menu" is a 3-dish dinner with a drink. "A la carte" is what you can chose from menu. So if you ask for a menu you will not get the menu, but will be served with pre-defined food selection instead. Second, service is terribly slow, even though they... More

The enviroment was great, good music, careful decoration. We hate the goulash that was fabulous, the Angus steak was good, but dindt apreciated the sauce, and the salmon was exquisite. The wine also very good. I liked the place, the people very nice and helpful, but....the service too slow...we waited 30 minutes between the goulash and the main dishes.

We had the best food of our stay in Buddapest here, the atmosphere is lovely - really warm, friendly and cosy, and the wine list was great. The staff were really friendly (not something we experienced everywhere here!) We tried the chocolate soufflé based on other trip advisor reviews and it was delicious. The only downside was there was only... More

Try the duck breast followed by chocolate souffle - amazing food at great prices. Not as traditional or cheap as other places, but worth the extra money for this standard of food.

The goulash soup, the wine, and especially the angus steak were really, really good. And the decorum made it a very cosy and intimate place. And only a few streets away from our hotel, the Buddha Bar.

Excellent restaurant for lunch just a few steps away from the main tourist street in Budapest. Staff were very friendly and food was very good from a short but interesting menu. The padlizsánkrém (caviar d'aubergine) starter was the best I've tasted anywhere. There is a decent wine list but only a few are available by the glass.
