Very good restaurant

It is a very good restaurant with a good atmosphere. The food was excellent, and there a special beer (Tanksor) available which was great as well. The service was good, but maybe it could be more fast at the evening as well (at the late afternoon it was perfect :)).

Whenever I am in Budapest I go to this pretty restaurant. Nice atmosphere, very good and polite staff (I speak Hungarian, sorry) and the foot is outstanding. Always ask for the chef's specials.

We had an apartment near Stex over the Easter period and ate at this venue on at least four occasions. The food was of a very high standard, considering we had a rather fussy nine year old on board. found the waiters very friendly particularly and helpful, with a good sense of humour particularly when we order cocktails. Ate at... More

I had a dinner in Stex last evening with my colleagues. We were 18 all together. The starters were nice and delicious, the strawberry lemonade I had was ok as well. We had to wait 1 hour (!!!) for the food to be delivered. I wasn't even hungry by then... Also, the air conditioning was wrong and we were freezing... More

We had great food here and great drinks. Decent service but what was lacking was made up with lots of muscle to look at. Would go again for sure!

I liked it so much here, I went twice during my two day stay in Budapest. I had the Hungarian style pork chop with potato dumplings and cottage cheese. The picture doesn't give the taste justice. It was lush. The second time I had the chicken, but I should have had the pork chop again. I also had the Hungarian... More

We went twice. Lively atmosphere and good music on Thursday, quieter but still very nice on Monday. Both days good service and big portions of good food from a wide menu, staff all seemed to have very good English. A great place for a tasty and good value meal.

We had a fantastic lunch here on our first day in Budapest. The food was amazing; if you go here make sure you're hungry as the portions are on the large side. It's a great place with a traditional Hungarian menu. The waitress wasn't particularly friendly, but it's the only negative of the place, and didn't dampen our meal. Worth... More

Stex was a pleasant visit. Good atmosphere, helpful staff and nice decor. Food was very good in taste manners but it lacked on quantity! We ordered the mix grill plate they have for 2 persons but as it seemed it was only for 1 and it was a bit expensive. Nonetheless all around good experience.
