We are so fortunate to be staying so close to this place! Decor simple, but elegant and the food simply amazing. Beautifully presented and Server Niki terrific! Right near Heroes Square, this should be on your list for a great meal at a great price....😊 We enjoyed the goat cheese salad, sea bass, ribeye steak and both the twisted doughnut and vanilla Ice cream and chocolate mousse with fruit deserts.More

This restaurant is the perfect place for when you’ve been to the Széchenyi Thermal Baths, Hero Square or the Zoo. We left the Zoo hungry and found the restaurant a few doors down and around the corner. They have an outdoor patio in front, indoor...dining room and a lovely outdoor patio in back. We sat out in back and we’re happily surprised that they don’t allow smoking even though it was outside. The staff was very friendly, helpful in describing the menu and very professional. Both our dinner choices were delicious. This was our last meal in Budapest and we couldn’t have been happier. A wonderful last Hurrah!More

Oh, sorry. Didn’t see this message. I was there eighteen months ago. I couldn’t get in last year. I would have asked if I’d seen your message. I’m visiting again in October so will try to remember to ask. 😁
