“Not great... not good...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012 via mobile

Actually quite tasteless... pizza, which took about 45 minutes, was dry, the tomatosauce was... eh... where? And cheese? Never heard of.
The waiters were kind but never there when you need one.
Asked for the menu for desert but never got it so we paid too much for what we got... and left. Not again.

“Terrible service, not impressed by the food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012 via mobile

We visited this restaurant/bistro while on a short city trip in Budapest. The service was extremely slow. We got to order after 30 minutes, reminded the waiters about our order 45 minutes later, after which we got the reply that someone would come to say what the status is. 10 minutes later we asked again as nobody came...
From that moment (we were there for 1.5h), we got a small compensation drink, and they brought the food shortly thereafter. If not for the nie weather on the terrace, we would never have stayed this long.

The food itself did not compensate for the service at all. My steak was ok at best, my girlfriend's salad consisted of some warm vegetables with half a can of tuna. Desert we had in another place...

In my opinion, there is no reason to go to this place.

“Don't go there”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2011

terrible service, the head waitress was on google after taking our order without passing it on to the kitchen, was playing on her cellphone with her friends, they didn't give any cutlery for desert, and the desert was a souffle so it was cool by the time we could begin to eat.

the food was reasonable but the desert was really bad even if it hadn't been cold. it tasted like it was bought in a convenience store. the main course was quite good but that was all.

we asked for the bill, and had to wait half an hour to get it.
