Was lured in with a lovely smokehouse smell and the patter of the manager promising great things - Unfortunately that is the only plus point - shockingly slow service - 4 waiters who appeared to have no organisational skills x drinks taking almost 30 minutes...More

Avoid this place at all costs unless you like waiting over an hour for a coffee. Felt like they were a bit racist too because we were foreign. They also over charged on 5 different items. The food was ok but also took over an...More

Nice interior. The smoky aroma from the grill was welcoming. Had a lunch at the terrace. Food was tasty: mixed meat tapas plate, eggplant cream over crunchy bread and a strong gulash. Try the Fat Mama-lemonade with cucumber and blueberries. Money well spent!More

We are proud to be the first restaurant in Budapest to use Bertha in our kitchen. Bertha is a charcoal oven that creates a special atmosphere in the restaurant. You feel like participating in a memorable garden party and in the hand of a well trained chef, Bertha produces super tasty, crispy food let it be veggies, meat or fish. Fat Mama Eatery is the only restaurant in the city center that has a real smoker pit available 24/7. Our smoker pit was provided by the uncrowned king of Hungarian BBQ, Máriusz Adorjányi. We prepare traditional BBQ food in it meaning long hours of preparation at low temperature. The perfectly cooked, soft and juicy slices of meat can be enjoyed in a cool and easy-going environment.
