Description: Our shop is located in the heart of the Danube in a corner (District V, Beer House and Molnar street and area) is located adjacent pedestrian street. Intimate restaurant on two levels in the atmosphere of the last century, the center of the ancient atmosphere. The restaurant is located in a small gallery of 8 people business - dinners, meetings, interviews can be a great scene. Masterpieces was home to Hungarian wine - wine tastings, wine dinners framework - which date shall keep the wine lovers. Our wine list only domestic wines from wineries offer you great emphasis on the fact that any of our guests - even just a drink as well - you can taste it. Wine Enthusiast guests can offer custom home wine tasting, which can be a great help in our structured test sheet and a multitude of wines. The menu includes traditional Hungarian dishes as well as international favorites. The cold dishes and desserts that everyone can find the right one for him, and even if not, then cook in mind, think about it and we will make you dinner. We do not insist on the best form, because we have a motto "we cook together and cook together." I hope will soon be among our guests to welcome you and your friends, both!

The owner was so amazing and nice. I went in alone on a recommendation, I am not a big fan of Hungarian food and it was such a wonderful surprise. I had homemade noodles. As well as a wonderful salad. The owner offered me suggestions, he even showed me some traditional Hungarian recipes. It was such a pleasant dining experience.

We had our Christmass Diner there. Atmposphere was nice, food was very nice (we had deer), price was normal. As we learn is it a family business and it is very sweet when you see all the family to work together!

Very pleasant meal! The owner took our coats for us when we came in and was very friendly. I ordered the catfish and my friend ordered the pork bbq and the triple chocolate dessert, everything was delicious. We both had a few cokes and paid +~15€/person

The service is excellent so as the food. the owner welcomes you and continuously checks on each table. the food is delicious, warm and nicely presented. The wines they serve are relatively expensive. If you go by car there is a hard time finding a parking spot.

The restaurant recommend this restaurant to us, it is very close to our hotel. But the classic fish soup is not available all the time, make sure they provide it before you book a table.

Delicious meal in a central location. The service was very friendly and gave helpful suggestions for Hungarian dining and wines. Portions were a good size and prices were reasonable. We would have visited again if our meal was not on the last night of our stay!
