We ordered a beef soup, fish dish and veal dish. All were great except for the fish dish. The fish was a little dry but the other dishes were great. The veal was nice and tender, recommended.

For tourists who would like to try out Hungarian dishes at reasonably cheap price, this would be the place to go! They even have a pianist playing live there, though unfortunately, it is a little noisy to truly enjoy the piano😢. But otherwise, this restaurant...More

The place was packed when we visited and for a good reason. Food is tasty and presentation matches the overall atmosphere as well - hearty, not fancy.

Our waiter was super attendive, honest, gave us a good advice on what to order. We let him choose some main Hungarian dishes as well as a delicious Cabarnet Sauvignion, he intertwined humor as well as professionalism. The Goulash soup and Vakvarjú (pizza) was delicious🍴

We ate in the front both times, but there was a room in the back by the bathroom that was empty with 5 or 6 tables. Call them to find out. It was the best Hungarian food we had in Budapest. Highly recommend.

Description
Do you know what Vakvarjú is? If you have ever tried a finely crisped bread dough with a lacy brim directly served from the oven, you must have tasted "vakvarjú”, the original fried bread dough of Hungary . This is the name of the simple, but even more delicious traditional dish of Hungary, of which you could try many variations in our restaurant. If you prefer other specialties, you are also warmly welcomed. You can choose any of our delicacies from the menu. Would you like to taste homemade dishes? Our cooks are just preparing appetizing savories in the kitchen. Believe us, all are worth trying!
