Would be to give it a promotion it does not deserve. It is truly one of the most abhorrent restaurants in Budapest. Foolishly I accepted the suggestion from my lovely hotel that I should try it. I failed to check it out. It is vile, a step below awful. I met a friend and we ordered meals. The staff knows... More

I have visited Stex many times and everytime it has been different experince. Food is good, but most of the time service is average. Most of the time in here its waiting, waiting to get your drinks and check etc... it would be much better restaurant if the service would be quicker.

Big Cock soup with goose liver dumplings...sounds good, right. Well it was disgusting. Big bowl of water. Old male birds make excellent stock yet despite the title they clearly went no where near this soup. In the water were frozen peas and chicken that had that stale refrigerator taste. ...and those dumplings. It was tasty, that's right one lonely dumpling... More

The place is comfortable although not particularly pretty, the prices are fair and the service is good. The food is good and a huge amount of it comes on the dish, I could barely eat half of it.

The restaurant is not bad in itself, they have fresh beer which is great but there are so many nicer places in Budapest, even if you just walk a few minutes from there.

We walked past this place a few times as we made our way to and from our hotel to the city centre and it was always busy so we decided to give it a go on our last night. We sat outside in an area roped off from passers by and ordered a ribeye steak, stuffed chicken and a bottle... More

It's a great price for the food, and the portions are plenty to fill you up. Just know that the majority of the service is made up of men in their latest 20's that would rather stand around and watch the sports on the flatscreen TV above your heads than serve you.
