This was the best meal we had while in Budapest. The food was delicious and the service impeccable. Excellent choices in wine to accompany the dinner. Accordion music was a plus the evening we were there! A must try for Hungarian Food.

We went to Nancsi Neni for a birthday dinner and were hugely disappointed by rude and uncaring waiters, serving stale and completely un-carbonated Pepsi drinks, greasy food, and, lastly, overcharging the bill by 10,000 forints, which is OUTRAGEOUS!!! It turned out that this "reputable" restaurant...charged us for 4 drinks we did not consume, charged the additional meal price for the leftover food which we asked to be packed to take home, and charged a third amount for non-existent and nowhere mentioned service fee. In total, the head waiter very quickly agreed to refund the overcharged amount without much question which only proves that Nancsi Neni STEALS from their numerous expat customers who probably do not always check the bill, hence it is easy to charge twice for this and that, and get away with it. They should be reported and publicly shamed!More

This is one of those places you need to discover. Well known by the locals as one of the best in BP. Locally inspired cuisine and drinks with caring service. Well worth the effort to get to!

Just came back, went there based on FB group recommendation and had one of the worst experiences here in Budapest where I reside last 6yrs +. Hospitality of few employees non existent, example (it's nothing new for us that waiters in BP can be rude,...bitter or zero flexible, but you get used to it) terrace during lunchtime one third full (and it stayed like this during whole lunch) but young lady in charge refused any our attempt to sit there but giving us option of going inside where we've been only guests because biggest asset of this restaurant is terrace. Immediately we felt unwelcome but ok since we're here let's try the food and that was big mistake, instant mashed potatoes, chicken stew tasted like they mixed paprika powder with water, really below average, any lunch canteen provides much better food and not overpriced like here plus mandatory tip cca 10% and for what?? Avoid itMore

I had pre-booked by email, but when we turned up we found the restaurant had had to close for technical reasons. We were very disappointed as Nancsi Néni is the perfect place for an outside meal in the summer. I contacted the restaurant and got...an extremely apologetic email from the manager explaining that we had inexplicably got left off the advisory emails that they sent out. She offered us a free mail for our family of four for inconvenience. If you don’t live in Budapest then you will not understand what an unusual, courteous and generous offer this. Add to that I know the food and service will be excellent: as i always has been for the past 30 years that I have been going there.More

We caught tram to go on children’s railway , but as missed train went here for lunch 15 min walk away . Went here in 90s and hasn’t changed much . Good Hungarian food , massive portions , efficient staff and packed with locals !...Csulok as good as we have had in Budapest . Delicious duck , my son loved his Vienna schnitzel. Wine list good , though good in all reasonable Hungarian restaurants . For nostalgia this is still a great place to visit . I wouldn’t go here especially unless I lived in Budapest but as part of day out on children’s railway it was great . Garden closed in winter which was always attraction of place but inside makes you feel you are in real BudapestMore

I had a dinner with friends in this restaurant. If you want to try something outside the center, this is the right place. It’s very nice and the waiters are very kind and friendly. We tasted typical Hungarian dishes and were really good. I recommend...it.More

This has long been a popular restaurant with the well-to-do nouveau rich residents of the pretentious Buda suburbs. Nancsi neni presents itself as an old-fashioned garden eatery, but in fact it is a ridiculously overpriced and pretentious place where neither the food, nor the service...justify the exorbitant expense. We had dinner here recently, and the experience was very disappointing. The service is demonstratively obsequious rather than attentive and efficient. For example, the waiter did not notice that there was no cutlery on our table after serving our meal, and we had to wait a long time to be able to pay our bill. You get a sense that image is more important here than substance just by looking at the menu – it is practically a story book that could take a day to read properly, extolling the history and aspirations of the restaurant: style over substance. The food was average at best. I had cold fruit soup which was floury and ordinary, followed by goulash that was too salty, and the meat was fatty and full of gristles. This was followed by ‘turogomboc’ (cottage cheese dumplings) that should have been light and fluffy – in fact it was dry and not particularly fresh. You get far better food at a fraction of the price in many small local eateries in Budapest. In fact, Nancsi Neni’s is the kind of place where the well-to-do but unsophisticated burgers of the rich Buda suburbs go to be seen and then talk about it. The prices are exorbitant, the service is poor and the food is nothing to write home about – avoid this place!!More

Traditional Hungarian restaurant in the Buda hills. Charming on the terrace in warm weather and also inside when it’s cold - no nicer place to go when there’s snow as there was on the day in December I visited. I enjoyed my schnitzel with chips...and tomato and onion salad. With beer, a glass of wine and coffee, the bill came to HUF 9,085 (about A$50) - a bit pricier than your typical vendéglö, but it’s a particularly nice one and worth it.More

The above mentioned tram number is 61, and then you need the bus number 157A or 257, or 157. The stop'sname is "Ördögárok utca". It is an hour from the city center.
