“Great Hungarian Meal/Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

We really enjoyed the food and the friendly atmosphere! The staff was happy to speak English and recommend traditional Hungarian dishes that tasted great. We were also pleasantly surprised by a live music experience during dinner. The price and location were perfect as well.

“Enjoyable!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

We had simple but great meat and fish dishes that came with rather inexpensive prices. The service was nice and friendly, so the visit was very enjoyable.

Please do note that the translations in the English menu are perhaps not exactly precise. However, that didn't bother us at all.

“Yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

It was our first visit to Hungary so we decided to try some local cuisine. The bistro is not located on the main streets but we managed to find our way there. The food was excellent and the service was great.

“Choquant”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

I've been there with some friends to eat a good dishes not to expensive. What a mistake. After the ordering we had to wait more than one our to eat something. All plates arrived at different moment sometimes with more than 20 minutes of difference. The bill was non more than steal and the dishe not better than a child kitchen. Just the waitress was friendly no more. The kitchen is definitly not typical i'm in budapest from 2 month and i had never a such bad experience for so much money!!
