We ate the best food in Budapest... Everything was really nice and the staff very polite. It is close to the opera. Low prices.

The food was so tasty and imaginative here. My major drawback is the poor service and attitude of the staff. You got the feeling they were doing you a big favor serving you. Sorry, I would be in no rush to head back.

What a fab find for us such a lovely contrast to our lunchtime experience. The place was heaving with an electric atmosphere. We waited at the bar until a table became available outside as it was a pleasantly warm evening. We didn’t have to wait...too long at all. The service was pleasant and the food really tasty and nicely presented. The deserts were delicious and the price for the meal extremely cheap and excellent value for money.More

Expats living in Budapest, 3rd time unlucky at menza. Roast beef was dry and without sauce. The pulled lamb Moroccon style was dried out, what you would eat at central station fast food kebab late at night.

High expectations because recommended in some of our tourist guides. But was quite a disappointment. It was very noisy, loud music and service was impersonal. Price quality very low score. If you want to try typical hungarian food, I would not recommend this place. We...tried other restaurants where we had much better food experience!More

yes, daily menus still available, no choice though. Nowadays many restaurants (at or below 3-star) will offer this Mo-Fri.
