The dinner here was outstanding. Excellent traditional meat dishes! Amazing gin and tonics. The strawberry basil was the best I've ever had. And the cottage cheese dumplings with dill ice cream was wonderful! Great atmosphere and location.

A great restaurant. This restaurant was really fancy, with great interior, great staff and amazing food. Wasn’t cheap but worth it!

We spent an amazing time here with friends before the RHCP world tour. The food has really exceeded our expectation. Everything was delicious, but my personal favorite was the desert - cottage cheese dumpling with vanilla & dill icecream. It was sooo light and the...taste of dill made it special. The service was excellent.More

they tried to deceive us by including other dishes in the bill. Very ungracious waiters. The wine is not topped up. The dishes are delicious. Drinks are expensive.

We were 4 people who dropped in for dinner. 3 had grilled trout. According to the menu card it was served with spinach. There were 3 tiny leaves of spinach, some kind of salad of semi-cooked potatoes which did not taste of much and the...fish was dry. The young lady who served did not even bother to look in our direction when she served our food. So we were definitely not enchanted by our visit to Szek.More

A wonderfully stylish restaurant with wine & cocktail bar, a delicious seasonal Transylvanian Hungarian menu, & attentive staff members. Our attendant Leila is very knowledgeable & enthusiastic. An interesting & mouth-waterting selection of dishes, paired with specific regional wines, & finished off with local pálinka...in a variety of flavours. Ask the staff members for their recommendations! Walk-ins are welcomed.More
