We had a lovely meal here as it was next door to our hotel. Great food and service and well priced. We sat outside in the little courtyard, best to book as it gets very busy.

Next to the Corinthia Hotel, you will need reservations. They have their own wineries which are excellent. Hungarian dishes are mainly meat based. Try their Cabernet Sauvignon its wonderful. Hungarian wines in general are very good.

Took Mrs G here for her birthday, the waiters were amazing, full of fun and happy to fully inform us about all the days' specials, even for a third time when I still couldn't make my mind up on what to have.

I loved the location, the place itself and food (including fresh bread, accompanied by home-made butter and black salt, which they offered for free). However the fact that waiter deducted himself 1000 HUF from change, ruined experience from service. Thus a hint: pay with credit card to decide yourself about tips.

Dear 'tx3hrp', Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review. We very much appreciate it.

If so that is certainly not correct and we shall... More

I tell you, the food, the service, the understated ambiance was the best I have had, not just in Budapest but in the world. Others ordered Rabbit, Salmon Tartare and Hungarian Chili Prawns. All fantastic. Don't miss out, and if you are staying at the Corinthia, it would be a crime if you didn't eat here once. Will not forget.

Excellent evening at this restaurant in the center of Budapest! We were sitting outside on a small terrace. The restaurant is specialized in Hungarian wines which are very good! We started with two glases of Shiraz, which were excellent! The waiter then poured us another glas, without asking, to finish the bottle. This seemed very nice even if in the... More

Liked the goat entree! Fairly casual. Fun Hungarian dishes and the waiter really helped us to make our selections and was funny, to boot.

Staying in District VII / Jewish Quarter

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.
