Staff needs to be more pleasant and attentive, perhaps fake it at least. The food is great though... nice traditional setting.

A very good restaurant with real traditional tastes . Fish soup is best in Budapest But paprikas is lovely as well. Must try if you don't want just a touristic show. Prices are very reasonable

This restaurant has great facilities with a nice garden with the ambience of my childhood from the 80's. The food, first of all, the fish soup was excellent. But the incomprehensibly bad service blew our lunch: the awkward waiter ruined our experience.

The restaurant has one of the most amazing gardens out of the restaurants in Budapest. If the food and beer could be a bit better quality this place would be one of the best restaurants in Buda. On their menu they have many-many dishes that for sure they cannot prepare freshly. The halaszlé and the turos csusza are nice but... More

... this was a place to go to, but now.... well, how can start without being too brutal ? Eight of us went for lunch, age range 17-93. We were seated in a shaded part of the garden of the restaurant. The service was provided without a smile, as if we were an annoyance, rather than guests. The portions were... More

I don't understand the negative comments here, this is a fine classic fish restaurant. Their tiszai fish soup is just like the way my family used to do it on Szentes. I have also tried a catfish in pepper crust, it was also good and a huge portion. If you want fine dining, this is not your place. If you... More

I like to try local foods and when the waiter told me about their beef gulash soup I ordered it and was pleasantly surprised. We also went back the next day for their fish soup but they did not have it. My wife and I have told lots of people to go there when in Budapest. I have tried to... More

We have heard about this restaurant last year in Szilvasvarad from a couple when we were participating on the truffle hunting event there. They mentioned that "you cannot say that you ate a proper fish soup until you taste it here". So we decided to go this time to celebrate :) Even though this restaurant looks like far away from...

Our hosts took us here for our last dinner in Budapest. The atmosphere is nice and cozy. I got the goose leg, which was a little tough and difficult to eat, but tasty (and the potatoes that came with it were EXCELLENT). My boyfriend ate the wild boar stew and really enjoyed it. They have a big menu with lots... More
