I wouldn't run to this one. It was good but nothing stellar....the food was hot and plentiful but kind of pricy for what we got and lacking some finesse and flavor.... same for the drinks. I think there are others I would choose first.

We went here last night to try some Hungarian cuisine, and this place had gotten a nice review in Eyewitnesses Top 10 book. The service was good, but the food was so bland, no flavour, sauces, presentation, with huge prices compared to most places we...More

The soup was very good and at a good price, however the drinks are overpriced. This is why as I finished my coke I asked for tap water, but I was told that they "don't serve tap water". Surprised, I asked why, and the reason...More

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
