We had breakfast at the Ket Szerecsen and were so pleased with the food, casual atmosphere, and service that we returned a couple of days later for lunch. We had an equally pleasant experience the second time. Their food and wine are reasonably priced.

This restaurant came highly recommended. We thought, for the price, it was average. Also, it was the only restaurant we ate at in Hungary that added 10% service charge to the bill (seemed to aimed at tourists?). We tasted their goulash (very good, but too salty), their salmon potato dish (seemed pre-made and re-warmed. not really hot enough), and the... More

In my opinion the Hungarian cuisine is not the lightest one. We tried not to over eat and ordered a quinoa spinach avocado salad (with... More

The angus, the salmon-spinach potato and the makos guba were very delicious and the staff was very polite and kind. I would definitely come back! :)
