A bit disappointing

Service was friendly, not prompt but also not annoyingly slow. More like just as you start to wonder whether you will get service, the waiter appears. It was not very busy - only four tables occupied - so not sure why service was less than prompt. The menu was more disappointing though. We had a... read more

Mezcal is tucked away in the 9th district but only about 20 minutes from city centre. It is especially worth the trip on a Thursday or Sunday (booking in advance) because you will get a 50% discount off the menu price. That means, starter, entree and dessert will average about$10 (excluding alcoholic beverage), including taxes and tip! There are many... More

Disappointed that the staff recommended this place as the food was the worst I experienced in Budapest. The staff were mostly young men who seemed to take it in turns to smoke at the side door. I ate the food on offer but you could identify every ingredient in the dish, total ingredients about four, tomato, not very well chopped... More

Went here with mum and dad, waiter was arrogant and spoke far too quickly for you to understand, persuaded the purchase of an aperitif, should have asked the cost! £5 for a shot as an appetiser we thought was expensive. His whole attitude was to get you to order , eat and leave ASAP! However gipsy pork slice dish was... More

They had a really wide offer of different items (starters, soups, main dishes, sweets), I guess, approx. 100 different items. We tasted three kinds of soup, four main dishes, and we were satisfied with. One of us had real experiences in Mexico, and according to her, the food was very close to the original Mexican food. Personally, I am not... More

Was offered only a menu with Hungarian food. They said there was no Mexican food menu for the day. We stayed as we were famished. Goulash soup came with no bread, and when we asked for bread they said they only had tortilla! We realized we fell into a tourist trap too late. Food was stale, had excessive salt and... More

My wife had the Mexican meat rice and I had the chilli. I enjoyed mine and it was as good as any I had had, my wife said hers was nice but she left feeling a bit hungry which was a shame. The restaurant was very well set out and very clean. The music was nice and the price was... More
