We were following the 'ruin' pub trail around Budapest when we stumbled on this lovely little gem and although the bar area did not seem to be open we decided to eat here. The walls of the attractive restaurant area are papered with old children's reading books which were fascinating and old tin advertising signs. The menu is translated into English. We both had 'beefsteak' with different sauces and I would say it had to be fillet steak, presented in slices like chateaubriand, it was so tender. They cooked the steak exactly as we asked, one medium well and one well done.
There was a good Hungarian wine list with a large wine chiller and warmer cabinets. We had a lovely Sauvignon Blanc.
The waitress was helpful and attentive without being obtrusive. Unfortunately we were the only diners on a Wednesday at around 2030 in August just after the Sziget festival.
It deserves to be much busier!
