I have been to Fekertes several times, though lately I regret each visit. While I enjoy the food, and have been willing to accept the disproportionately high bill, my hopes for an improved experience continue to be dashed. My first impressions were of tasty, interesting food, while the ambience, price and service were lacklustre. A friend who used to work there describes the owner as 'eccentric', which I agreed with the first time around.
My opinion lowered when I once made a booking for four people, and at the last minute had an extra person come along. Upon arrival, I politely explained the change and apologised. While I half expected to have to find another place to eat, given the patronage and the cramped layout, I didn't expect that the owner would fly into a rage and yell at me. Needless to say we went elsewhere (we weren't given much choice). Staff at another busy restaurant nearby went to the effort to find us a table and we left satisfied.
I gave Fekerte's another try more recently. I am not sure if the owner remembers my face, but we spent the whole meal being glared at. Perhaps it is not just me, as other reviews repeat these observations.
