Guys! I tried cooked duck in over this huge planet, but this one was something outsta.... IMAGINE A PAINTER, an Artist who creates a masterpiece, state-of-the-art painting which needs a sacrifice of the creator's soul, a beautiful song that touches your heart and you suddenly...remember the best moment of your life, an act of love that brings orgasmic happiness to you! ...his name is Edgar, he is Chef here. He does create these feelings in you by ordering you his amaizing and excellent dishes cooked to perfection, bravi! You definitely deserve a significant salary increase, otherwise there's a risk you leave for 3* restaurant))) My culinary heart I left in this place... Thank you so much, Edgar. I met you twice and hope for more! Your duck with raspberries (!!!!!) Has become my passion! 🥰 Also, I was offered delicious local wines, palinka and types of beer. Overall, quality of service was on very high level. All these cost... average price, I think, afetr my comment they will raise price tag))) Pictures: duck liver on bread with clear butter, strawberries and blueberries, duck breast (ask for medium rare) with raspberries, strawberries, stewed red cabbage, potato gnocchi and blueberry jelly, grilled salmon fillets with seasonal vegetables and balsamic dressing. P.S.: who I need to kill to try all these again?!!!!!😮👍More

Found this dining gem on our last night. Don’t let the faux English pub decor fool you this place deserves the word “gastro” in its name. The menu is small but everything we ordered was presented beautifully and cooked to perfection. We didn’t order a...starter but were presented with a small tasting of deer stew which definitely whetted our appetite and certainly created a sense of excitement for our main courses. The beef steak with green peppercorn sauce was fantastic, the saddle of deer with blue berry sauce was WOW and the king crab with piquant sauce and asparagus was PERFECTION and I use capitalised letters to communicate our enjoyment of a wonderful meal. Let’s not forget the drinks, all perfectly served and gorgeous dry white Hungarian wine. Attentive and friendly service and short walk from the Basilica, definitely worth finding and enjoy.More

We had a few drinks, felt like a good atmosphere, and decided to order some food, but that was a mistake unfortunately. Not what we expected at all, really poor even for pub food. Veggie burger was not as advertised (no burger or goats cheese...at all in fact!) and the owner had the cheek to add a service charge. We mentioned the issue with the veggie burgers and he just shrugged. A bit expensive for drinks too, definitely don't come here expecting good food. It took a good hour and a half for us (group of 9) to get our meals... There are better places to eat and drink!More

On one evening we went to this pub after we ate in a very cute little restaurant near to this pub. The first time we went to this pzb, we were pleased by the irish atmosphere and the nice old guy who made a good...service. We told us they were offering good deer dishes. We drank there some beers, there were not do much guests but it was a calm and good atmosphere. He offered us good bread. We planed the following evening to eat there too. I got *spicy prawns with thai vegetables*, well they weren't spicy and half of the vegetables were very cold(like they were directly coming out of the fridge). My boyfriend had a steak. He found it good. This time, we didn't get bread, so I had to ask for it. I think the pub is ok for drinking dome beers. But if I compare the other restaurants we ate at Budapest with this one, I have to say that I was quite disappointed.....More

We saw this place on our first night but on seeing the Guinness signs outside thought it was likely to be the usual clichéd Irish bar. Big mistake The place is like an olde worlde pub, spotlessly clean. The menu is great with a great...choice of local food. We chose a Wiener Schnitzel (massive) and the peppered pork fillet. Couldn't fault either dish at all. Washed down with a couple of DAB beers (my only complaint was that they had no local draught beer) Very reasonably priced and friendly - go there.More

What an absolute gem! We stumbled across this wee bar after visiting St Stephans Basilica. Rich, cosy setting with a welcoming host. The furnishings are clean and comfortable. We enjoyed a fine coffee and Palinka. Find it if you're looking for a quiet place to...stop in the city centre. Excellent!More

A hidden gem in the city! It is next to the Metro station where the trolley stops. You can have here the biggest sortiment of quality whiskeys of Budapest! Nevertheless food is extra. Venision is the the mainstreem, but if you wanna have good steak...or Hungarian meat dishes, you will be satisfied. And it really worth the price. The owner is cared about our choice personally. We tried lamb and veal - it was so smooth and tasty. The restaurant was a John Bull previously. The inner atmoshere is cosy, you can feel yourself at home. Well recommended! ;)More
