Best Deer Stew Ever

We went as a group to Elefanto, and overall, everyone was happy with their meals. The staff were a little bit lacklustre and disinterested, but the restaurant was clean, and the deer stew was amazingly tasty and tender - I would highly recommend it.

The food is okay (we had a pizza and it was not bad), but be sure to check the menu for prices and your bill and change afterwards! We did not check the price of the wine and were charged a very high price for something that was definitely not worth that much. When paying, the waiter (probably thinking that... More

We have eaten here for years but stopped going because the food got bad and the service got bad too. However, we kept hearing good things about it so we decided to give them another chance. We got a table for 4 and were given some menus. 20 minutes later nobody had taken our drink or food order!! There were... More

And we was disappointed, that only 2 kind of winery deliver wine for the restaurant. Why? In Eger are lot of excellent winerys. In the past was there more possibility to paar food &... More

We have been visiting here for years and the food was always good. This was our favourite restaurant in Eger. However, over the past couple of years we have been served some awful food such as raw burger, cold meat and generally have not enjoyed the experience. However the pizzas remain good.

Stayed in Eger for some nights with my wife and came here for some late evening meal. Had a salad and some wine and was satisfied with the service and it had a good atmosphere.

Stopped with the family for a quick lunch before heading out of town. Service was friendly and adequate. Didn't have the English issues others described in previous reviews. Pizzas were good and reasonably priced. Can't speak to other items on the menu. Cool atmosphere sitting under canopy on the second level.

as said the food was ok, but not the best I have tasted. The pasta dish I had was ok, the tuna came from a tin and I dont think much was fresh to be honest. It was tasty enough but not cheap considering what it was. It seems the resraunts here do not put much effort into their food... More

The food was good, but the services was not the best. I wanted to pay by "SZÉP" card, but the waiter didn't listen to me, just went away, and finally I had to pay by cash. The other problematic thing that they don't have actual drink menu. I asked the waiter , and he didn't give us. They served us... More
