Avoid! Firstly, we were given cocktails that had no alcohol in them. The bar staff seem to be short changing their customers. When a cocktail tastes like lemonade, you know something is up! Then, the open top sandwich was a joke. Someone had sliced a...baguette and one slice appeared with butter and ham on top. Yes, that’s right, one slice - less than the size of a hand! An absolute rip off of a cafe. The waitress was lovely, however, and offered more drinks as alternatives. We couldn’t believe what was presented to us!More

We waited one hour for our plates. We get our foods at three times at a time so we couldn’t eat together. The food was not bad but didn’t worth the waiting time and the price. Many mistakes from the waiters with the command. It...was not possible to enjoy our meal with stress then.More

We came across this cafe on our Budapest trip and it was our favourite place we found! We enjoyed it so much that we came back again the next day for more. The food is amazing and the owner named Bobby is so friendly and...welcoming! He made us his own home made lemonade and coffee, it was so delicious and we would definitely recommend to try. Bobby went out of his way to help us, he took pictures for us and made the experience the best. We can’t wait to return one day! 😊More

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.

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
