A small inn of Óbuda with a quite big terrace gehing the Green Gate (=Zöld Kapu). Big portions, traditional dishes, and some specialties. If you like knuckles, you'd better pre-order it, and the same is true for the 3 liters beer-giraffe :) Last time (mid-day), we tried more moderate plates: chicken in different styles with salad, but over the years,...

We were recommended to try this restaurant by a colleague and it's exactly what we hoped for, traditional and nothing too commercial - a true taste of Hungary. The portion sizes are huge and even for big eaters it's was a struggle. The menu is also extremely long which we were spoils for choice. But you really can't go wrong.... More

This is the place if you want to eat traditional csülök (shank) in Budapest. Extreme size portions, large variety of csülök. Suggestion: select from the menu on website and pre-order via phone, so they serve you just-in-time on arrival.

You can find here the real Hungarian cuisin. It is not easy to make your choice as the menu is way too long, but once you come over that little difficulty you will experince the way how Hungarians used to eat. Huge portions and delicious taste, well better to say way too big portions. Anyway I have enjoyed eating here... More

It is fantastic they have 3 pages of all different type of knuckles. They are all proper portions. If you are not that hungry it's better to share one or prepare for takeaway. They also have all type of the Hungarian dishes beef, pork, chicken etc. Very good tasty and big sized of food, nice and friendly service. Relaxed apmosphere.

This restaurant is close to my office, and i invite there all my colleagus who visit me from abroad. The only issue was always with the size of the portion. There is a really amazing selection, and so far everyone was satisfied, and the returning colleagues loves to return to this restaurant also. I rate it below to cheap eats,... More

You will be very hard pressed to find a better, more authentic Hungarian restaurant in the city for the overall quality, atmosphere, and charm of this local eatery, FIND IT! it's a real treat for anyone that enjoys excellent food at a modest price. I would recommend this restaurant to any friend, family, or business. EXCELLENT!

Only good things are the drinks there. The salad was not even close to cold. 4 groups of people that came in after us get the menu before us. So this is only a one-timer for us

We visit this place very often. They have tasty typical hungarian meals. The outdoor area is romantic and very nice on summer days. Recommended.
