“Please give us some vegetables”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013 via mobile

We loved this restaurant. Relaxed atmosphere. Knowledgeable waiters without being overy prissy. The food was super yummy, my wild mushroom soup with wild game in particular stood out. One quibble- where were the vegetables? This restaurant is within sight of Budapest's main market. Surely it would not be beyond the chef or some other member of staff to visit and see what is in season? My main course of duck and polenta was lovely but not a single veggie graced the plate. Okay I was a vegetarian for 10 years and maybe have an unnatural attachment to vegetables but please if they are not on the plate could I order them as a side? Please use vegetables as a way to differentiate. Play on your proximity to the market. Revel in legumes. I lived in Scotland for over 20 years, the home of deep fried pizza and Mars Bar and if I can learn to love veggies then your customers can. Give them a chance, please!

“Lovely - would highly recommend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

It is hard to add anything to previous, excellent reviews, but things that we particularly appreciated about this place were: relaxed but sophisticated atmosphere, great decor (and cool photos), friendly service and good English, interesting menu, including daily specials, which had both safe, child friendly options and more enticing options like pigs knuckle and barley risotto for the grown ups, fantastic wines sold both by the bottle and the glass, stunning desserts. I would highly recommend it for a romantic evening, for an evening out with friends, and for a family meal.

“Absolutely fab”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013 via mobile

We nearly missed this, despite staying close by, however visited on our last night and we were soooo.... glad we did. The food was fantastic, lovely atmosphere, priced very reasonably - wish we had another night to fit in a second time, definitely worth a visit

“Great valentines meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

Great service, wonderful Hungarian food and generous portions. A meal for 2 with bottle of wine (excellent hungarian merlot) came to 14,000 HUF (40 quid) with tip- great value!
