For 7 years I visit the bar at least 2 times a month. I feel always like I'd come home. If I want to have a good time no question I come here. If Kaies works good mood is guaranteed on top. Special thanks for...that!More

We went here for our first meal after arriving in the city. Tired and hungry this offered the perfect selection of hungarian dishes and Jewish style food ( as it is based in the Jewish Quarter which is the best area for all of the...bars and restaurants) Lovely Goulash soup , what better way to start. It is based in an arcade with lots of other bars and restaurants so plenty to choose from throughout your stay.More

Best foods, and the best cocktails in the city. We drank a Pornstar martini and an aperol touch, then the burgers were amazing with the sweet potato. Thanks Keve for the whole night it was terrific.

We came for late lunch / early dinner to this fancy hipster place. The service and drinks were ok, the food was rather average. Goulash Soup was not to the expectations, halloumi cheese is better grilled than deep fried, only beef stew was good. The...most disappointing part were some guests, particularly two groups of already drunken, loud and grumpy Dutch / British teenagers (at 5PM, seriously!). Been there couple of years ago just for drinks and have not tried the food. If I knew what we are going to experience, would go elsewhere. Such a pity!More

Don't go there, unless you want a bad surprise and an awful experience. We asked for a dish and it came differently, they changed a typical Hungarian that we have chosen for steamed potatos. We have talked with the waiter and he admited he knew...they did not had the dish we had asked for and decided not inform us. He refused to give us a discount and was disohnest and grumpy. Budapest is packed with other places were you will find a MUCH better experience and menu.More

We tried to have dinner, but where told the dish was out for that day (3times). Even the dessert was. Furthermore, service wasn’t good + they charge you for service. Although I do not like being charged for service, this time they did not deserve...service…. Ps. The food and even the cocktails we got, did not taste good and they dont work on their presentation. Neither the drinks or the food were worked on.More
