Not to exciting, not too Hungarian, not that good either. Ordered cottage -cheese dumplings, Was not good, boring. sweet sugary sauce. The only reason we visited this place bacause it is meant to be Hungarian. Well..a bit of dissapointment to say the least.

This Estonian run Hungarian restaurant was created in 1997 by a local who visited and loved Hungary. When she returned to her hometown she wanted to bring some of Hungary to her ciry and this place is the result. The staff are exceptionally friendlly and the food tastey and of good quality.

My partner has ordered fish, they brought it half ready, totally raw inside. We've asked them to change it, for the second time it was raw inside! My meat was dry and tasteless. Wouldn't recommend this restaurant to anyone!

We came to this restaurant to have our dinner. Service was not really good, no smile, no recommendations, servant always watch us from bar counter with face that was saying "go home, I dont want to serve you". Food was not bad, seems like home-made Hungarian food as we ate in Hungary. Prices are not cheap but not crazy expensive.

Really nice place. The food was good, especially liked how they served fish soup. Have to try it if there. The service is excellent. Waitress gave really good recommendations on what to take if we had some hesitations. We didn't have a reservation but it wasn't a problem at all.

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
