We ( a party of three couples) had lunch here recently. The quality of food and service was at least up to the standard we enjoyed three years ago.

Food was very tasty, though service was varying. I was a business traveller on my own and felt the service was noticeably 'cooler' than with some of the paired guests. Could be considered a little stuck up. Other than that, the service was fine. Take into account that the tip (borravaló) is already included in the bill (irrespective of party... More

Ate dinner here the Sunday evening of our stay and were variously entertained by a musical trio who ran through a number of polkas, traditional dancers and a couple of arias. I'll admit that I usually hate music while I eat but it was hard to resist the enthusiasm of all of the performers. The food was lovely - we... More

We ate lunch here just before leaving Budapest after a lovely 5-day break. The menu with which we were presented was more like a dinner menu , with quite a high price attached too for Budapest. But we had heard about this in advance and so we did spot a lunch menu on another table and chose from the lighter... More

We came to this restaurant after it was recommended by the hotel reception. Had a lovely night here: good food and great atmosphere thanks to the musicians! We tried out the local dishes and the traditional Unicum. The staff is very friendly. Would definitely go back!

We stopped by for a mid afternoon, late lunch. While there we were serenaded by a traditional three piece Hungarian Gypsy Band which featured an amazing violinist. We both had the Lamb with Moroccan Vegetables and found it delicious! This cafe has a pleasant atmosphere and excellent service. Located next door to the Opera. This is not an low price... More

We were here for lunch which was fine...the veal in paprika is recommended...I suggest if you are here for lunch ask for the "Business Lunch" Menu otherwise you will be steered to the dinner menu is rather heavy if you are looking for a light lunch option. If the "Gypsy" musicians are playing they are charming, but will be at... More

We had visited Callas on our last trip in 2010 & were looking forward to going again. This restaurant does not disappoint , they have raised good service to an art form, & nothing is left to chance . The food is sublime, certainly not cheap , but worth every cent, especially when you have been anticipating a real treat... More
