It might have just been what I ordered but the duck leg was really overcooked and dry. Everything else was excellent particularly the Hungarian cold starter plate. The waiter was very attentive and the chef even came out to say hi at the end of the meal!

Good atmosphere, good selection of wines, excellent food both Hungarian and international, and the service is the friendliest in town. You just don't want to leave. All for reasonable prices.

Our hotel referred us the restaurant and I have to say it was all amazing: All dishes we tried were great and the staff was so polite and professional. They also make great recommendations when it comes to pairing wine with the food. If you are looking for Hungarian cuisine and Hungarian wine, this place is a must.

Had a brilliant time here, rustic, good ambience, great food and friendly staff. I'll go as far to say the waiter, bar lady and chef, whom came out to chat, were the friendliest people we met in Hungary. (Though in truth this isn't a difficult feat). We highly recommend you go to this restaurant!!!

The goulas was wonderful, the pork outstanding; the fish and the venison dishes were passable. But the courtesy and atmosphere made the experience pleasant. Good value for the price.

We discovered it by chance and got such a nice dinner. Fresh Hungarian specialties, perfect service and delicious wines. Do not hesitate to ask some advice to make sure you get the best match to your dish. All wines can be served by glass.
