“Tasty but loud”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We went to this restaurant especially to taste the famous hungarian fishsupe at it's home. They got me a little cauldron full of it, I hardly managed to eat it, it was a huge portion, served as it should, tasty and warm enough. Not so my girlfriend's goulash soup, which for tasty was tasty enough, but lacked the optimal temperature.
Regarding the environment, tastes and opinions are different, but i don't really like the pushy attitude of those music bands singing in restaurants, surrounding your table willing to play your favorite song or not necessary your favorite, but the main idea is making you put some dime in the jukebox. And they were very loud. But I think tradition must be respected and if the tradition in this restaurant is this, who am I to complain?

“Excellent Gypsy Musicians”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

Very good food with ok prices. The interior is very pleasant and the four piece gypsy band with cimbalom was first rate which is hard to find these days in Hungary. Pick a table some distance away from the musicians because they may seem loud if you are close. Very good service.

“Enjoy your local fish soup in a relaxing atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

The restaurant is in a very quiet area, next to the Roosevelt park and Tisza river. If the weather is good, sit outside on the terrace, because it's very relaxing to watch all those people passing by, dogs playing, etc. The fish soup is very tasty and it's a huge portion (for 2-3 people). The staff is nice and if you ask for recipes they will be very happy to tell. Order the mixed dessert plate for a peak into their very yummy desserts. An if this wasn't nice enough, live local music will definitely set the mood.

“good paprikash”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Very good fish paprikash. Near the park, so there is almost now traffic and cars. Nice terase.
Maybe our waiter was a littel slow, but others was seem much better.

“After my graduation ceremony lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

It has an usual good quality both in food and in service. The prices are OK. If you want to eat a Hungarian (specially Szeged-ien) fish soup you should visit that place. One of the best....
