“Friday brunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2014 via mobile

We drank mulled wine and ate pizza with my parents. The restaurant is very cosy and the feeling was good. We get in half price the local Borsodi beer.

“The worst restaurant which we ever visited”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2014

We were there one week ago. We were hungry so we decided to go somewhere for lunch. The guy who staying outside offered great price for menu so we went to this "restaurant". The waiter together with second guy were obtrusive. We decided to order few lunches (goulash soup, chicken with some sauce and pizza). What we got was really disgusting. Pizza was small, cutlery was dirty and meal tasted frightfully. Toilet was also dirty and broken. This restaurant should be closed really. It was big mistake to went there. And finally they charge extra money as a tips which we had to paid even we were disatisfied. Never go there again!!!

“Do not eat here.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2014 via mobile

The worst "restaurant"i have ever been to. Food is awful, the worst I have had. Service is terrible, they got drinks order wrong, food (if you can call it that) order wrong. But that didn't matter because the food was that bad none of the four people in our party ate it. Two piece band came to "serinand"us but basically howled til we paid them to go and annoy some other poor sod. All in all one the worst dining experience I've ever had. Stay away.

“So-So at best.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2014

Was passing by and decided to have a quick bite. Waiter seemed polite and attentive when I placed my order and requested no salad, meal arrived with salad. The ladies at the next table ordered drink with no ice the waiter repeated "no ice" and they received their drinks with ice. The place wasn't that busy perhaps the waitstaff here just don't care. The food quality was okay, nothing special but it was hot and filling. When I finally was able to get and pay my check I received 300Ft in 5-20Ft coins perhaps hoping I'd leave it all as an additional tip. Fat chance.
