“Great service, good food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

The best thing about this place was our service. Our waiter was just awesome - friendly and able to answer all of our questions about Budapest. We came here for our Christmas dinner meal and I ordered the turkey steak which was cooked to perfection, however, the salad that accompanied it was bland and not so good. However, all was redeemed when I ordered the chocolate souffle which was incredibly delicious! You MUST get it if you visit here! :)

“Good local food and wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

Stopped for lunch here on our first day in Budapest and it turned out to be a good find. The staff were friendly and helpful, particularly in choosing local wines. The food was good and filling; just what we needed after our flight and the trip into town from the airport. My chicken soup was followed by a beef stew flavoured with caraway and served with noodles - what I know from Switzerland as späztle. Very good.

Altogether a very pleasant meal.

“Great Food and Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

Found this restaurant half down the street that is full of restaurants (Hooters virtually opposite). Got here about 8pm nice evening, loads of people sat outside. Waiters found us a table for 12 near the tv (England game was on later!). They had patio heaters (asked for it to be turned down cos it was so hot!) and blankets. The "girls" loved this idea!

Service was very good, friendly and quick. Waiter was friendly and even put the England game on for us! Very attentive with pour the ladies wine when their glasses got low.

Food was excellent, the special of Goulash soup and chicken was very good. The pork wrapped in cabbage leaves was really good. On the whole everyone enjoyed their meal which is pretty good going for us lot!

Drinks (several beers each and 4 bottles of wine) and food prices very reasonable, even with the service charge was only about £25 a head.

So good we came back on Sunday night when the meal was equally as good.

Would definitely go back.

“So So”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Not very impressed. The staff was more interested in chatting with each other than waiting on tables. We had goulash and split a salad. Nothing spectacular.
