Good Food

I love their cold cherry soup. So for me it's an absolute winner. My main Grilled Calves Liver was too well done for me. Wife had Paprika Chicken which she said was good. Great flavour and cooked perfectly. Daughter had Veal Knuckle which she said was very tasty. Service was ok. Usually much... read more

Went for dinner their last night 3 of us, food was fresh but not for the price. We had matzo ball soup $9.50, side salad $9.50(enough for one person). A veal schnitzel and a chicken schnitzel one small serving and a large. Mushroom sauce was an extra $4.00 which is a major disappointment as its instant gravy mix probably a... More

We live locally and dine there often. As it is close to home, we sometimes order takeaway from the menu. The food is always tasty and everyone has their favourite dish. The owner Kathy is very friendly and keen to ensure everyone enjoys their meal.

Whenever we are sick of cooking, we head off to Cafe Gundel. The range of choice is extraordinary and although it specialises in Hungarian food, there are other lighter options available which makes it a perfect place for a family or group with many tastes. I always order the prawns and rice dish. I don't eat meat but there are... More

Best roast duck and Vienna schnitzels in Sydney. Generous portions. Great flavour. You will keep going back.

For my recent birthday, we decided to go to Cafe Gundel in Rose Bay. Our family has been there a number of times and each time have had top service, together with beautifully prepared and tasty food. For seven hearty mouths to feed with entrees, main meals deserts and drinks, we were there from early evening to closing time. My... More

Typical middle European hearty fare, not over the top expensive and good for families. Perhaps a little lacking in atmosphere (i.e. not as cosy as 21) and service can be a little slow when busy. Good portions and thankfully they have langosh here - YUM!!!!

Used to be a great restaurant. Went in there this evening explaining, as we walked in, that me and a friend were just there for a quick coffee. Waitress was very polite, understood and took out a new table for us. However 5-10 mins later the lady in charge specifically walked over to our table and complained to us (in... More

This noisy little restaurant serves up wonderful Hungarian food. Kathy the owner and her girls make sure that everyone gets served in a timely manner even on a very busy night. The food is always good Hungarian comfort food and anyone looking for just that should make a beeline to this restaurant. You can usually get a table, but it... More
