“Awesome -felt at home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014 via mobile

This was recommended by a Hungarian friend in london! Thank you Aniko! We had wine as suggested by the charming waiter in good english! The food was great - the dessert to die for! Do try the stuffed baked apple and the bill was reasonable! An authentic night out that felt as if we were locals! A must do - relaxed local with no touristy rubbish

“Great traditional vendeglo in central Pest”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

Great place in the central 5th district that offers all the Hungarian and Austro-Hungarian favourites. Our schnitzel, sausage soup and cucumber salad were all very good. Cute, quiet room; fast, friendly service, and reasonable prices. Good draught beer and wine. And as noted by others, frequented by Hungarians as well as foreigners. A rare find in this increasingly touristified part of town.

“I will come here again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

I have visited the restaurant 3 times and I know that whenever I have a chance to stay in Budapest, I will come here again. The last time I was here with my boyfriend and we were quite in hurry. I asked the waiter for a possibility to get a faster service. And they were fast indeed! The food was delicious, I got my favorite Hortobagy pancake and my boyfriend roasted mutton. Soups we had before were also very good, just like how my grandma (originally Hungarian) used to make. We both were leaving the place very satisfied and had no problem to get to the train station on time. Simply, very good traditional Hungarian food for reasonable price, perfect service and good localization in the center.

“the place for authentic fish soup at local prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

This restuarant is not a cheap dive, but neither is it a tourist trap. There are no gypsy dancing or musicians to entertain you. Instead, you get good service from the waiters and delicious hungarian fish soup. We had the Szegedi style one, which comes with fish fillets & roe (the others may not have this). The serving of fish will cover a group of 4 and leave you room for a second course - which should be something light (that is more fish or a salad) . Have one of their delicious pogacsa (savoury breads) which are on the table (they are 200 ft a pc) had a lovely serbian carp (racsponty) for second course. Highly recommended.
