I had a group of 36 from Ireland and what a night we had. Great food and loads of it, friendly staff and great entertainment. We even left with one of our party being knighted. Great for a groups night out.

Where to start. Amazing food, Medieval Themed, using only your hands to eat. This place was an experience. Apart from the food, there were actors that played various acts. From Knights to a man eating fire, to many more. If you pass by Budapest, BE...SURE to go to this restaurant. Prices are also fine. Also dont go without a reservation, chances are you will wait a long time. Would recommend 100 % !!!!More

The quality of food and services is not the same as before. The waiter got our order totally wrong, saying arrogantly just "it's what you ordered, sir!" We ate there many times in the past... Sorry, but won't go there anymore.

I wanted to dine here in Sir Lancelot for years. Dad has been here several times and he always admired it. When I moved to England I recommended the place to so many people, friends and clients. Whoever tried it they thanked the recommendation so...much because they loved it. Finally last night I had a chance to go for dinner with my other half, sister and her partner. We all loved every single moment and bites and drop of drinks. My only problem is, we didn’t have space for dessert 😄 next time… This place is not only about food. It has a good vibe, the experience you have there is incredible, the guys who worked there were so nice to us too. Definitely wouldn’t call it cheap but absolutely worth the price. So whoever dared to leave review previously to moan about the pricing, I can recommend McDonalds for them… or any other zero quality place… you get you you pay for and here you definitely get the best you can. Definitely will be back, can’t wait 😊More

IF YOU ARE NOT A PRETENTIOUS, OLD, BORE, DON'T LISTEN TO NEGATIVES. So I read some of these reviews and please, the place is nothing like some of them say. It is beautifully decorated, full of little quirks like armors, swords, British coats of arms...hanging from the ceiling. Everything is rather dimly lit and finished with dark wood finishes. The staff are dressed up in medieval clothes, all the glasses are ceramic, looking like old cups, just so many little touches. The food is very tasty, maybe just the deer meet was a little disappointing and slightly overcooked but everything else was just gorgeous, especially soups and liver dishes. You only get a spoon and a fork so you have to eat with your hands a little! And I cannot believe how someone can complain about this. The shows are a brief but add extra originality. Some may seem not related as they are a little exotic, but hey, Hungarians come from Huns, so a widespread influence is justified. Also, it is not a theatre to expect a full scale performance but a silly entertainment bit in a restaurant. I AM NOW A SIR ANYWAY. Honestly, it all just plays well together and it is an unforgettable experience, worth recommending. Maybe a little pricy but nothing ridiculous and in my opinion the theme is worth paying a small premium.More

Fantastic experience. Really gets you into the theme. Live shows, friendly staff and medieval music. Get ready to eat with your hands.

I visited this restaurant twice, once this year and once 10 years ago. It is a must visit restaurant in Budapest. The food is good but you don't visit this restaurant for the food instead of the whole idea. The concept takes you to a...castle with knights in the old days. Before you go, you should know that you are going to eat with your hands. Also, be prepared for a noisy night as there are many shows from the waiters/performers during your meal. The prices have increased significantly during my second visit.More

Me,my wife and 3 year old went around 7pm. From the moment we walked in we were blown away. All the staff dressed in medieval costumes and keeping up the act all night. The portion sizes were huge but quality was superbly high. The shows...put on were fantastic and all made for a great evening. They don't have forks but that's great, takes you back in time. Can't understand any bad review, prices very reasonable also.More

The meal was less than average. Soup was the best part. Platter of meat and veggies was huge but not tasty - meat was dry, veggies tasted like the frozen kind and were just boiled, a few pieces of fruit and cabbage salads. Dessert was...a piece of pie that tasted heated up in micro. The show was a total disappointment - one dance with fire, then two guys shouting what seemed like silly jokes in Hungarian. Nothing like what we expected so we left. It was also quite expensive for a meal in a city where you can eat delicious food cheaply. Do not waste your time!More

Another gem we found on TripAdvisor! Was an interesting walk to the restaurant due to the roadworks but that didn’t seem to put off anyone! Luckily as it was late afternoon we snagged a table. The decor was what we had hoped for, a medieval...themed restaurant with all menus and drinks customed to the era. The service was decent, the drinks were good and the food was spot on. We went for pork, sausage, bacon and onion skewers and it was cooked to perfection, we were stuffed after that. The only thing that’s not getting a 5 star review is the price. Thought it was a tad overpriced but apart from that, a great shout if you are in the area.More

Hello! I think they still organize some kind of show in the evenings but it's better if you give them a call and get all the information.
