Nancsi Neni was pointed out to us by a local Hungarian friend. We went there for lunch and very much liked the place. It is an old fashioned restaurant, the menu has good variety of dishes, both Hungarian and International. It has a great story, service is good, the food was very good, as was the homemade Lemonade. Definitely going... More

We've visited Nancsi Neni many times over the years and if you want to have the best Túrós Gombóc in Budapest, this is the place. Big, soft, perfectly cooked each time with lots of sour cream and powder sugar. I don't care for the toasted bread crumbs. The service is friendly though I get a feeling of indifference, perhaps it... More

It is not in the city ! and that is the only negative side of this restaurant. Taxi from the centres is around EUR 20 (in aug 2016). Pure form of national dishes without any influences. Feels like you travel back in time.

Escape from the crowded city and sip some home-made lemonade. Enjoy either the oldschool enterior or the shade under the century old oaks. This place managed to keep the good old staff with excellent service. Portions are fine, prices are fair. Excellent value for the money. I would suggest every foreigner to try once. This kitchen resembles the most what... More

What can I write about it? One of my favorites. Not in downtown but worth to travel to try it. Good price, excellent food, both Hungarian and international. I am in trouble sometimes to what to eat as the season specials are so delicious as well and I do hesitate to order the food I eat normally or try something... More

Nanci's has been our local for the last year and a half and we are going to miss it as we are leaving Hungary soon. This is the sort of place that you dream of finding as a local. Great homely Hungarian food, good variety, generous portions and very friendly staff. Our favourite restaurant in Budapest.

The food was good, however the service was unbearable. The waires were rude. We were sotton outdoor and when a storm started and we asked for them to open the unbrella, they responded that they wont open because the wind is blowing. I would not recommend this restaurant.

Good old-traditional country-style Hungarian-German kitchen with professional staff but commertionalised a bit. Good meals, big portions, wide range of choices, but not a cheap place. Price vs. service ratio still ok, it is worth to try, but a reservation is a must, since it has limited capacity.

One of our favourites in Budapest. We returned several times and were never disappointed. Food: great portions. The menu is not too busy, which is a good sign, and still you can choose whatever your taste may be. Their speciality is Hungarian dishes, but not the most simple ones. Service: quick, extremely efficient and friendly. The waiters know their job... More

We visited with our family and enjoyed the beautiful outdoor dining area. The musician played piano accordion in the corner. The children's playground meant my youngest girl was happy. The food was delicious and portions generous. I want to return for more!
