We came here on the recommendation of the front staff of our hotel. The goulash was delicious, as were the other dishes. We enjoyed our experience and talking to the gentleman who we assumed as the owner. His wine recommendation was perfect. He was so...attentive and funny.More

On a previous trip to Budapest a work colleague and I stumbled on this restaurant when staying at a local Hilton. One of the best finds ever. This is my 4th trip to Budapest and third visit to this restaurant. We travelled with two other...couples none of who have visited previously. The restaurant is small and cozy and has a great local atmosphere. Food took a little while to come out, but as we were on vacation it didn’t matter. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the unicum the owner brought out at the end. Will definitely make Firkasz a dinner stop our next trip.More

I write the review in english so more people undersrand. I ordered the sztrapacska and got basic nokedli ( dumplings ). My dish did not have ANY brindza in it and was swimming in tomato (?) sauce. It was not bad per se, but it...definitely was NOT sztrapacska. The ham had greasy fat chunks that were bigger than the cubed ham. What a disappointment.More

Overall an incredible place! The food was delicious and high quality for a good price. I had the duck leg with mashed potatoes and the cheese for dessert. I'm always on the hunt for a place where locals go and has a good ambiance and...this place has both! If you're as picky about red wine as I am then you'll be pleased with their delicious hearty Hungarian red wine selection. Absolutely delicious! The owner said he selects them himself from small Hungarian wineries. The owner was super kind and hospitable and made the whole experience even better. I'll be back for more!More

It’s not clear how old this place is, but it has a charmingly antique, traditional feel: nice wooden panelling, old tables and chairs and lots of interesting old stuff on the walls. These places are disappearing fast in Budapest. The menu has the Hungarian favourites...- I had borju páprikas with dumplings and sour cream. With a korsó of beer and coffee, the bill came to HUF 6,100. And being the last of the big spenders, I left HUF 7,000. When I arrived at lunchtime, I almost left because of the loud radio. But the waitress cheerfully agreed to turn it right down.More

Yes, definitely try and reserve. Your concierge will do so for you. Depending on where you are staying, I would recommend a taxi there and back.

You're welcome! You can pay with credit card almost everywhere in Budapest. There are also many change offices that don't charge commission in case you do need some cash.
