A happy surprise

We were pleasantly surprised with how great this restaurant was, considering its proximity to a Metro station and on the fringes of a so-so neighborhood. The staff were friendly, professional, and just attentive enough. One waitress made excellent wine suggestions for our meal, and helped us... read more

In a crowdy intersection at Astoria, we did not have the greatest expectations. But we were tired and hungry and we let the prejudices go. And we did not regret. There were clean, the waitor were quick and friendly and the food was very good (we choosed the gulasj soup). And we must not forget the local beer; the ice... More

First of all I'd like to say that the layout of this restaurant was what immediately caught my eye. The decor from what I saw was certainly attractive to the eye. This is what drew me and my friend to the menu and we were greeted by a lovely young woman who had us seated. Having a substantial amount of... More

We ate here twice, it was round the corner from our hotel, but the food was great and reasonable, the spaghetti carbonara is delicious , they specialise in low fat puddings which is a novelty, the goulash soup is tasty and the cold raspberry soup is lovely!

After reading other reviews, I cannot believe I was in the same restaurant. Lazy staff looking to the mobile most of the time, not asking if we want anything even when we have empty glasses in front of us, extremely long waiting times( It took 1,5 hours to serve 3 courses)...our lasagne were nothing like they should be, served in...

Stopped by for lunch and had a 3 course authentic hungarian meal - did not dissapoint - the food was great and so was the beer. The waiter could be a bit more welcoming, but he answered all of our questions and was prompt and courteous. Definitely a good place if you want to try good hungarian food

This was our least favorite meal in Budapest. Perhaps we didn't order the right thing, not sure. We each had a bowl of Hungarian goulash, which was basically potato soup with a coup,e of small chunks of beef. We also had the Hungarian pancakes with minced chicken, which were nearly inedible. Restaurant was on a traffic corner. Server was good,... More

Neighborhood Profile
District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.
