The authentic Hungarian food and drink at this place was so AMAZING! Best on our trip to Budapest! Our server “Boge” was great and had perfect suggestions for our food and drinks. This was our last night in Budapest and we wish we had found...it sooner. Def planning on a return visit. Go here and you will NOT be disappointed.More

Truly amazing tasty traditional food . The setting and the gypsy musicians are a welcomed addition to enhance the most gracious service we have encountered in the whole of Hungary !

The evening walks on Váci utca made us hungry. We had chicken Hungarian paprikash and chicken supreme and goulash. We liked the goulash the most. Overall, we rate the food as excellent. The plus was the knowledgeable service and the tastefully decorated restaurant in the...style of the Hungarian countryside. Julo and Deniska.More

The location looks like a small museum full of utensils and pictures from the Hungarian peasant culture. Live music accompanied our dinner and the food was really good. Prices are not very low but they are proportioned to the abundant quantity of food.
