The waitress was not nice, she was wearing a sports sweater. The store manager was outraged when we told her we didn't want to pay a service fee for the awful service. The music was so loud we couldn’t hear each other.

This is the fifth time I was in this restaurant. The staff is very friendly. The food is great. There are salads, soups, and there is pasta, different kind of main courses with or without side dishes. This time I took the Brazil sirloin steak...(200G). It was perfect for me. The Staff member István is a great guy. Thank you very much for your service.More

We visited here for drinks as it was close to where we were staying and decided to go come back in the evening for a meal.. We got there about 8.30 but I don't think the waiters were pleased that we wanted to order food!...We ordered the beef in red wine and chicken ceaser salad when the waiter saw that I had a straw in my drink which the dental people gave me to use.. He declared lady you bring your own straw he did not like it! (We are visiting Budapest for dental treatment) my ceasar salad was awful no parmesan cheese or croutons I went in to ask for parmesan cheese they were very rude and bought it out when I had nearly finished and just banged it on the table! The beef in red wine was bland we had such high hopes for the food! Will not be recommending to other dental patients who stay at the arena hotel or going back.. Such a shame!More

Very close to the hotel, so I’ve been here four times already. The best thing is that you can sit outside and the kitchen is open late. First time I was there was dinner with my wife. Had the wiener snitzel which was very good....Second time just beer with friends. Third time lunch with an old colleague. Had the chicken breast with sundried tomatoes - chicken was very dry and rice hard. Fourth time I had the Angus burger with fries - tasted ok but very small. so 4 times in a week. Place is very nice. Staff is friendly. Food is uneven and a bit expensive. So it’s an ok if you are close but I would not travel to eat there.More

We've visited restaurant by recommendation of hotel staff. Menu is instant with some Hungarian specialties. Food is very basic as well as service. During our visit they have very noisy party and all staff was fully occupied by group.

Busy and best to book if gigs or events on in the nearby arena. Waitress was good enough to find us a last minute table. Beer at the bar slightly more expensive but the food was good and reasonably priced. Good portions and well cooked....Fast service. A large busy place.

This is by far the best restaurant we visited in Budapest. Just near the Arena Papp. Prices are reasonable and food is exceptional. The stuff is really fast service and extremely polite. They smile all the time. It’s a nice feeling. In the summer time...better use the terrace but in the winter time the fireplace inside is fantastic .More

My pork was charred and beyond dry. I asked for tartar sauce and waited, no exaggeration, 20 minutes before my server cane back to check on me. I told him I still hadn't received the tartar sauce, and he disappeared AGAIN for 10 minutes. I...didn't touch my food. I finally stood up in disgust and went inside to pay. What I should have done was walk out, since my food was untouched and barely edible. I will never consider going back to Ypsilon. What a terrible experience. I didn't an apology, they didn't offer me a discount, nothing. They clearly don't appreciate their customers. It was 4pm, they weren't even busy.More
