We went here for dinner based on another article. So glad we did. Ate on side patio under awning. Sophisticated but not stuffy atmosphere. International menu with ample portions elegantly presented on black plates. Service was great. Not rushed but there when needed. Menu changes...quarterly. We had two starters, bone marrow with roasted cauliflower, and duck liver flan with figs, onion compote, gnocchi, and roast veges. Entres were whole bream and duck breast. Both with interesting accompaniments. Black forest cake of dark chocolate and sour cherries. Two drinks each. Total bill including 15% tip and tax was less than $90! Great time to be in Europe!More

We loved this place and went there even twice during our 5day stay in Budapest. Food is excellent- very fine hungarian food, best we had in Budapest. Service was great - really friendly, in a good mood and very attentive. Prices are totally ok -...lower than in some „hyped“ places, e.g. in the yewish quarter.More

First time that is drink a Lemonade with a piece of orange inside. Tasted good. The only drawback is that...there isn't much food selection on the menu.More

We recently visited on the 7-6-22 I ordered a Bombay Safire mixed with Lemonade. The waiter argued that it was two separate drinks and they don’t believe in mixers, although another waiter took the Bombay Safire back off me when I said I wanted sprite...instead. The waiter still continued to charge me for the drinks, although none of us had touched it and believes that, because it touched our table, it should be charged for. Will not be coming back, as being over charged for drinks that we physically did not touch.. would never recommend to anyone. After paying our bill, overheard another couple with the same waiter being scammed out of more money because they was told a drink would be mixed, and arrived unmixed and taken back by a waiter. Avoid, unless you wish to be scammed.More
