I usually go here to meet friends for a drink or two. The place has a nice atmosphere is summer, you feel like home in the garden. It looks like the perfect place to read a book in the afternoon and then meet friends in the evening. In winter I don't go there so often, but definitely a great choice... More

Great great music. Definitely check it out! Not like the other ruin bars, as they have really fantastic music (i'd like to say all the time, but I actually can't be sure..)

Potkulcs is for those who want to go somewhere where you get the feeling that several of the guests are regulars, you hear more Hungarian than English and you want to run the chance to run into a nice live concert - and you don't care if it is Hungarian folk, jazz or rock. You can eat something but you... More

Nice original laid back bar with mostly local crowd. Not very easy to find. You can get food here too. The night I was here, an older gentelment was playing an acordion.

I loved the laid-back atmosphere here. It felt very relaxed, even when it was crowded. I ate one meal here that was decent, but nothing special.

I have been going to Pótkulcs regularly since 2006 and I love it. It is quite "retro" in style, but very cosy. In summer you can sit outside in the lovely courtyard. The prices are very good and I love their food, especially sztrapacska, one of my favourite dishes.

I love it. A little bit expensive but the in the summer this is a great place. the cook is sometimes slow, we did wait an hour once, but the food is good once it is in front of you.
