We went late on a Sunday so it was very quiet. I had the schnitzel which was delicious & my partner had a pork dish which was equally tasty. We also had a large beer, juice & a water & the bill came to €27. You could eat for less there as well (my schnitzel was only €8.50). Good food,... More

We got warming Unicum schnaps for starters, had a selection of salamis and cheese that kept us satisfied the time... More

First time here and I have to say that a major part of the reviews are correct. Enjoyable and tasty as hungarian food is. The interior has a familiar feeling to it , hungarian-bavarian-austrian. One unique feature is the TV showing old hungarian movies(no sound), so special and fun.

I've visited this place more than two times, but had a really bad experience with a waiter. First time he did not want to split the bill between me and my friend - this was nothing serious. Last time was more horrible. I arrived with my girlfriend and the place was packed. We ordered our food and were told that... More

Situated just outside the old center of Tallinn, we are glad Tripadvisor made us aware of this restaurant. Having been in Tallinn multiple times, we wanted to try something else this time and a Hungarian restaurant seemed a good alternative. So it was. Very pleasant service, nice (Hungarian) drinks, good food and reasonable prices made it a great visit for... More

Wandering around we got hungry and this one popped up. We didn't have any expectations of quality but menu seemed to be nice so we got in and had table. Service was great! Woman in her forties was smiling and friendly. Pepper steaks we ordered were excellent and they cost almost nothing compared to prices in the heart of medieval... More

Visited this restaurant, and had my laptop open on the far away side of the table while waiting for food. Apparently they have a huge problem with that. The waitress came over, and basically read me a lecture, about how this is a restaurant, and I would not be able to enjoy my food if I had my laptop open.... More
