This s a place you should visit because of the interior design, it is well worth it for that. The food is ok but not Budapests finest fare.

My husband and I truly enjoyed our lunch here. The server was so friendly and helpful and she spoke enough English to help us understand the buffet arrangement. The food was delicious and priced well. I absolutely recommend this place.

We loved monument cafe. The mini shot glass food concept is brilliant. It allows one to sample many different thingus and they are small enough to go back for a second one if you like it.
