“Close to Palazzo Zichy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

We arrived at our hotel at about 8pm on Sunday night and doing some tripadvisor research was aware it was open of a Sunday evening, when asking the hotel staff for directions the kind receptionist at the hotel offered us a 10% discount voucher. Well that took care of the tip, we had both had burgers, which I felt compared with some of the best I have had, very meaty on a local made bun, very nice better than the Hard Rock and about half the price. Had a couple of bottles of Dreher larger to wash it down, a great introduction to Budapest.

“Standard little pub, good prices!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012 via mobile

Popped in for a few drinks on a Monday night. The place wasn't too busy and we were served quickly. Not sure if it is the standard thing locally to order and then pay for all drinks at the end but that is what they do at Fiktiv.

House wine was cheap, beer was delicious and smooth and they even had some specialty Scottish whiskys (although these were a tad more expensive at 1500 HUF - in line with Scottish prices).

Didn't have any food but they had a fairly standard local menu. Nice wee find for a quiet drink.

“Nice place”

Quite nice restaurant. Ate there the first night in Budapest, a short walk from our hotel. Tasty food, good wine, and friendly service.

“terrible service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

The service is terrible generally. The waitors are impatient, aggressive and unskilled. This is surprising if I think of the relatively high prices. Will never revisit.

“Watch the Charges”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012 via mobile

Went to this pub for lunch which was okay. However they charged 1500 hufs for a large glass of red house wine. This would pretty much buy a bottle of such wine in such a place elsewhere. The over charging for the wine along with the service charge meant a much dearer meal than it should have been. Won't be back there.
