“Not as good as advertised”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Good but not great food; tiny portions (we literally ordered a fourth entree to split among three people -- and yes we had appetizers). The service was slow (fairly typical for Budapest -- they don't have the same pace as many western cities); dishes were fine but not creative; nice location but not a lot of ambience. I'd rather go for a beer than a full meal.

“Good spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

This is a very solid restaurant with a nice (and somewhat interesting) menu - especially for Budapest. Prices are good and service is always excellent (again, a rarity in BP). Also nice atmosphere and very nice covered outdoor area. Recommend.

“Great breakfasts but mind the 10% tip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

Ket is a nice Budapest restaurant with a nice atmosphere and a solid kitchen. But beware the 10% tips which are automatically added to every check (not the custom in Hungary). My favorite meal there is breakfast.
