“A hidden Gem of authenticate Hungarian food not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

On our 4th visit to Budapest; we discovered this "hidden gem" of a restaurant only a few minutes from the Central Market Hall (Fovam ter.) Situated on a corner of a small outdoor park ( renovation almost complete - beutiful garden/precinct areas) - this is without doubt the best restaurant we have discovered. Advance booking recommended; over 2 floors in converted warehouse building, specials board and menu card, very reasonably priced but cooked to perfection. Wines and beers - excellent variety - by the glass or bottle. Perfect service by hosts who really are pleased to serve you. How good ? we went on 3 successive nights - that says it all.

“Delish!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Amazing service, wonderful selection of Hungarian wines, and delicious meal. It was in the heart of Pest, and near public transit downtown. I enjoyed it immensely! 100%!!

“Great food, not so great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012 via mobile

This restaurant clearly understand the importance of social media. They provide free wifi and encourage diners to review them online with a message on their placemats.

I had the duck, it was good. Though they did not ask me how I wanted it done.

I rated low on service because while I was only one of 4 tables, no one came to ask me if I wanted more water or wine, even though both had reached empty.

“Average at best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

We ate here during our first night in Budapest. I found the food to be fairly average. The real reason the locals seem to come here is the drinks. We saw several locals arrive, have a couple of drinks and then push off to their next destination. Only tourists were eating. The drinks were very well prepared. I would recommend for a pre dinner drink, but definitely average food.
