“marvellous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

Historical, the food, and excellent, the wine. Although it is not cheap, prices are similar to good restaurants in town. Not to miss!

“High class”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2012

Great food and service! I had the goose liver and then the rabbit leg, both excellent! It is just at the feet of the castle very easy to find:)

“Delicious Hungarian Food with a Modern Twist”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

We were pleasantly surprised to find this fine dinning restaurant in the small town of Eger. The decor and atmosphere was classy, but not stuffy. The type of place you would go for a special occasion and also feel comfortable going for a casual, week-day dinner out.

The menu was relatively small, but packed full of delicious options. We ordered a starter from the list of seasonal specials - smoked duck served cold with goose liver pate and local jam preserves: a great way to start the meal and not too filling. Our entrees were 1) pork medallions with wild mushroom puree, bacon seasoned brussels sprouts and 2) roasted rabbit paprikash with spinach dumplings. For dessert, we had fried curds with a spiced cream sauce. Everything was thoughtfully prepared, perfectly seasoned and plated with style. Total cost including tip was just over $11000 HUF.

The service was just to our liking: a team of two waiters who were prompt but not overly pushy or in our way. Very professional.

We would definitely recommend Imola and will visit again on our next trip to Eger!

“Fine and Friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2012

Very friendly welcome! Clearly arranged menu, local products with solid descriptions. Helpful recommendations for food and wine. Excellent quality (visionary - harmony side/main dish slightly improvable) and rich quantity with a very good value. Very nice background music, tasteful design. It could be in NYC, Paris or elsewhere. Huge range of fine wines, nice desserts, we'll come again!

“Clearly the best in Eger”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2011

This clearly should be rated as the No. 1 restaurant in Eger. We ate at the other top rated restaurant, and while the food was good, it was a funky bistro. Imolo is a classic, first class place, with outstanding food, a huge wine list, and seemingly one (outstanding) waiter per table! There is a complete menu, with many unusual offerings, as well as more conventional food.

We ate here two nights, and the food was outstanding. We did not, however, try the cock testicle soup - if you do, let me know how it is!

The other interesting point is that the art consists of wine labels; and there is a large mug shot of Jimi Hendrix (when arrested in Toronto) with Hungarian writing underneath, which apparently was a n actual Hungarian wine label.

I made it clear at the outset - this place should be rated No. 1 in Eger. Enjoy!
