“Nice, warmplace with good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

One of these places you'd never find by accidetn. Had a recommendation from a friend, first try we couldn't get in because it was fully booked (Sat) and reserved a table for the next evening. Nice warm place with good atmosphere, approx. 30 seats downstairs and upstairs some more. Mains between 1.500-3.000 ft. Two person full menu with starters and deserts 13.000 ft.

“Gem within tourist area of Pest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Yes, food that isn't overpriced! If you go on a weeknight, you can probably get a table, but beginning on Thursday, it's usually pretty packed. The food could best be described as "new" Hungarian, and is very well done. Perhaps a little rich, but since when is that a bad thing? Go, you won't be disappointed.

“Nice slightly fancy place with nice kitchen”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

We were celebrating the birthday of my husband there. Its located right in the center, but not really easy to find if you are first day in the city. Very nice atmosphere, interior with a lot of taste. Staff there is very friendly and professional. The food was delicious, also possible to find local cuisine. Enormous portions for reasonable prices. In the end of the evening my husband received a nice chocolate dessert with birthday candle and a warm smile of waitress.

“fantastic food, and more!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

We came at the restaurant on Friday evening, and it was full. Nevertheless, friendly staff found us a table almost instantly. They offer a great variety of local dishes, but with some special touch that make this restaurant quite unique. On top of that, service was professional, and the prices were more than resonable. The dinner was so good, that we decided to come next day for a lunch, which was also great. We tried a variety of things - a rabbit, pork knuckle, hortobagy pancakes, and wonderful sweets (shomloi galushka, or something like that), and everything was just great!
