“A hidden place worth of searching for”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012 via mobile

I've knownw this old restaurants for many years. It has the best traditional Hungarian fish soup in town, as tasty as it gets (and yes, I'm Hungarian). Besides the wide spectrum of fish meals (predominantly fresh water, but you may find some salt water fish on the menu as well) there are many other delicious dishes. The beef tartar, the sirloin steak, and the deer goulash are certainly outstanding just to name some of my favorites.
I recommend the place to those who are not shocked by some old world Eastern European ambience. It is not a sterile modern restaurant in a fancy vacation destination. Your weight loss program will be derailed there too. Yet, it is clean a clean place, and the service preserved the elegance and politeness of yesterday's restaurants. And above all, you will love the taste of the old school Hungarian cuisine.

“Excellent food in a basic setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2012

The Co-Walter Restaurant (halászcsárda) is my favourite restaurant in Győr. It is my favourite not because of its decor (very basic benches outside) or its location (very difficult to find) but because it makes the best fishsoup (halászlé) that I have eaten in Hungary. A big call, I know, but I am a bit of a halászlé freak as I take every opportunity to consume it on my frequent visits to Hungary.

Co-Walter is not a place where you will find tourists, it is a place where the locals eat. Prices are cheap, the food is excellent, the halászlé unbelievable! To find it, you may have to turn on your GPS but it will be worth it. If you are passing or visiting Győr, it is well worth sampling what real Hungarian cooking is like.
