Horrible service. Ordered corn salad, didn’t know it would be 98% mayonnaise. Wanted to change the dish. What was the answer of the staff? “If you would go to any other restaurant in Budapest and order corn salad, it would be like this.” So rude,...they didn’t change the dish and of course we had to pay for it. The rest of the food was ok, not special or very tasty. Won’t come back.More

The ambience and the design of the restaurant is good. The food was good, however I didn’t like the peas purée that was made, something in it tasted bad. Otherwise overall it’s a good restaurant to be.

Stumbled across this restaurant while on a walk with my girlfriend, when suddenly, a welcoming live piano sound caught my attention. When we entered, we were welcomed by a smiling waitress, and within seconds, she gave us a lovely table. I’ve tried the BBQ pork...ribs, which was heaven on a plate, paired with a lovely hungarian IPA, glass of sparkling, a homemade lemonade, which was filled with fresh citrus. There are simply no words to explain how tender the meat was. Followed this beauty, I had the banana hazelnut dessert, which spoke for itself. Both of the dishes I had were excellent. Lovely atmosphere + live music + great foods couldn’t get any better. Highly recommend this restaurant. We’ll be back!More

We were looking for place to have a snack or a light lunch and came across this lovely restaurant. We sat at the peaceful outdoor area and had some cocktails and shared a dish of bread, some meats, goat's cheese, salad and potatoes. It was...very good and I’m definitely keeping this place in mind for a next time trip. The interior was very stylish and also the toilets were the nicest ones I saw during the whole week. ;)More

I think reopening was a good idea. Staff was above perfect, so was the food, the cocktail offer and the wine. They had live music all along our dinner making a nice atmosphere. The place has a lovely elegant design which adds up to the...overall great experience. As a bonus they have a kids’ play corner.More

That's what I call hospitality! It's like having a fine dining lunch but at a surprisingly affordable price. Every day you can choose from dishes prepared by the master chef. And the daily menu for 10 Euro. Can you believe this? I highly recommend you,...you will never be disappointed. Serving as a desirable model.More
