We visited this restaurant in January 2014. Located near the Szechenyi baths the location is ideal for a romantic lunch or dinner as it is built on Városligeti Lake and is very pituresque especially if you dine on the outdoor deck. The food is delicious and on the gourmet side but quite affordable. I recommend it to lovers of the... More

Ok! So go at night and it looks amazing, not quite as good in the day. The positives the food is good, we had goulash soup and steak with fries and veg, which had to be asked for as did not bring out with the meal. Service is all or nothing and not particularly friendly.

Nice, modern restaurant situated on the lake behind Heroes Square. Service was very good, the waiters were very attentive. We visited at lunchtime and both had pasta/noodle dishes which were well presented and tasty. Worth a visit if you're nearby.
