We really enjoyed the light airy place and staff were very pleasant. I had a very tasty club sandwich and hubby said his burger was very nice and tasty.

For a few sandwiches, a very light order took more than an hour. The description of the food is different from reality. They forgot part of our order. For us, as foreign coughers, it was difficult to communicate, they did not have an extraordinary English.

Beautiful restaurant and lovely waiters. The food was delicious! We eat the chicken paprikash and the Hamburgers. The paprikash is my new best food😍 The limonade and the caffes was good.

We ordered only mulled wine - it was ok. Staff and service are average, nothing special. There are tables inside and outside the cafe, inside atmosphere is nice.

This restaurant served the most uninspired «Caesar salad» I’ve ever tasted. Very bland taste and a single cherry tomato. Staff’s behaviour felt unfriendly and our drinks came 15 mins after the food.

Terrible experience. We received what I believe is the worst Cesar salad i’ve had. It was a joke. Mainly white lettuce, some chicken, some dry toast and ONE cherry tomato! I could have gotten just a lettuce with some sauce on it. The location itself...was ok, with a nice view over the Danube river. Located right next to the main road, so do except some major traffic noise. Service was alright, but not really an effort compared to the price payed. We received the salad 20 minutes before we even got our lousy lemonades... I do not recommend.More

We went twice to this place. First time for drinks. It is a very nice location and the drinks selection is good. Second time we came back for food but they managed to forget about our order so we had a long wait. Staff also...didn’t check on us if we wanted to order any more drinks or take any dirty dishes from our table. Food is good and has the flavor of home cooking. Would recommend but not if you are in a hurry.More

The view is nice, Close to the road. The service was just there. The food was average. In Hungary restaurants are usually much better, much more welcoming and tastier. but this one is just for one visit and never to return.

We were struggling to find somewhere to eat after walking down from the castle and didn’t have time to cross the bridge over to Pest. Luckily we found this place along the tram tracks on the river. It doesn’t look like much from the outside...however it is a nicely decorated coffee shop on the inside and the waiter was friendly. I would recommend the club sandwich.More

We enjoyed a great lunch in YBL Bistro before hiking up to the castle. The friendly staff and delicious meal fortified us before our excursion to the royal palace and art gallery. Do not miss a slice of the apple dessert! The crystal chandeliers in...the ceiling made us feel like royalty.More
