Hi. We spent a couple day in Budapest so had plenty of time to try places to eat. Walking around we just ran into the piknik at lunch time. All the choices looked interesting and well prices were not in US dollors but in the...end not expensive. We both had the Hungarian ghoulash and that was great with bread.More

After I visited the Matthias church and the tower I ate a good langos with sausage and cheese near a good beer. It's was nice to eat in that place. It's true that it was saturday and it was a lot of tourists and I...expected a while but it was worth it. It's true that is a small spot but with a lot of people eating there.More

We were sightseeing in the area and wanted to know what the Hungarian cheese bread was. We ordered the bread and beer and sat outside listening to the music. Fun busy place. The food was good, this is a reasonable lunch food place not a...fancy restaurant but we very much enjoyed it.More

This is a small but very busy little spot. We ordered a langos with cheese and sausage. Had to queue for about 10 minutes but it was worth the wait as it was tasty and freshly prepared We only had one between us which was...enoughMore

If I could give ZERO stars I would. Busy place in a tourist area but we thought we would give it a try. Lined up for well over 20 minutes, the man in front of me ordered food, when I reached the “waitress” (I use...this word loosely because she lacked any customer service abilities at all!) less than two seconds after the previous customer, I tried to place my order to which she replied “no. Lunch is finished.” I asked what food we could get, considering the man in front of me just ordered food and the kitchen appeared to still be open, to which she shrugged and said “nothing” rather rudely with a nice eye roll. I wouldn’t have minded had she been polite and explained in a professional manner but she was down right rude. After reading their reviews I can’t say I’m surprised, should have checked their reviews first. AVOID!!!More

Everything was served on paper plates and plastic cutlery, had to wait 15 minutes for a sandwich at a quiet part of the day. Most likely just capitalising on tourists looking for the closest place to the bastion

One of the reasons you go for coffee is that you want to use the toilet facility. Here you had to pay to use the toilet. It must have cost them a fortune to install a turnstile. It wasnt as if it was accessible to...the public. I nearly walked out but I thought it would be free if you are a customer but we ordered coffee (which was OK but not fantastic). The coffee was HUF1800 for two EXPENSIVE and the toilet was 150HUF (50p). DiabolicalMore

I was so excited to go there cause it looked so cozy and cute. But I was disappointed and regret going there. The hot wine was smelly and tasteless. The food wasn’t fresh and didn’t smell good and half of the stuff that was written...on the menu wasn’t there. The girls were so rude and very impatient. There was a quieue for ages and the food was disgusting at the end. They charge customers to go to toilet and the place was soo dirty. Very overpriced for what you got and it wasn’t what I order either .More

Really enjoyed the sausage in a roll and couple of cold ciders/beers - just what was needed after lots of walking and not really dressed for restaurant dining.

Very bad goulash, water with potato and carrots. Langos is ok as is every fried dough. Ice cream was ok for kids.
