everything was delicious, from the homemade lemonade to the main courses and dessert. We have already visited this place twice and I am sure it will be another before we leave!!!

What a terrific surprise for our 1st night in Budapest - Lado was just up the street from our terrific hotel (The Continental), has jazz every night, and it is anything but run-of-the-mill! Don't miss it! You'll never want to leave.

Although we only ordered a main meal food was delicious. Fried potatoes were a nice twist on chips and salad ingredients fresh and appealing. Staff very friendly but not intrusive. Singer and jazz band who came on at 8pm made it a very atmospheric venue....More

We prepare the classic meals of the Hungarian cuisine. We recomend the popular goulash soup, the little bit spicy vegetable ragout "Lecso" and the city's popular "Budapest style beefsteak with goose liver". Besides the meals, there are live jazz concerts every evening from 20:00 till 22:00.
