“Little gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012 via mobile

Soup is amazing and cheap! The beer is standard Budapest price. Great service! Relaxing atmosphere. The decor is clever and beautifully dingy, made up by everyday items used in an inventive manner! Go for the lamb soup!!

Very cosy, yet stylish. Food tastes perfect, had the duckbreast with risotto and figplum, very special!

“Excellent food, reasonable price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Great little place that is rightfully packed most nights. If you go a little later, you should be able to score a table, and it's worth the walk out there. The prices are far better than what you can get in the more touristy areas of Pest, and the food is very well executed.

“Very nice food in a very nice little restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

A small but interesting selection of dishes at reasonable prices. Well prepared food with a little twist. Very nice, relaxed and informal place.

“Not what I expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

We went to this place based on the previous trip advisor reviews looking for an old style East European dining experience but that didn't seem to be at all what we got. Frankly, this eatery would not be out of place in in any "alternative" neighbourhood in the Pacific Northwest, nor would its very limited menu. If you are looking for Goulash this is not the place to go.
