The staff were wonderful, helpful in seating choice, wine pairings, side pairings, multi-lingual, kind and attentive. Food was fantastic, environment at 6:30pm was great for conversation, romantic environment, calm and peaceful so we could just focus on each other and the wonderful meal. Highly recommended...for locals and for visitors.More

We were looking forward to our dinner here but what we got was way beyond any expectations. It genuinely was, as the title says, one of the greatest meals we’ve ever had. Absolutely every dish was packed with the most incredible flavours. I can’t even...find the words to sum up how incredible it was. The baby clams, scallops, prawns, Iberico pork and even the side of creamy potatoes… oh my god! Desserts were beautiful too. Service was fantastic throughout and really helpful. If we ever return to Budapest, this will absolutely be our first stop!More

I am a regular customer as I love the restaurant. But this time it was horrible. I was there with a friend. Full house and only two waiters. We had to wait and wait.... It took almost one hour before we got our bottle of...wine. My friend ordered the Tiger Prawns. They were not deveined and way overcooked. So we logically returned them but still had to pay for it. It will take a while before I go back, if ever, unfortunately!More

We arrived for a birthday dinner with my husabnd and decided to eat a tapas style dinner with several different smaller plates. Before ordering anything got a glass of cava as a present, that was a really nice gesture of the house. We ordered like...6 plates and some wine, they all were extremely delicious (the best was the duck liver duo), such portions that we almost failed to finish them, but thanks to their fine taste we succeeded in the end. The service was also good, high standard of everything, no mistake at all. Definitely worth to try!More
