Gulyash is fine. Other menu not tested (except handmade fresh - is good). Not many people, good interior.

During New Year celebration we visited this place. The food quality was generally OK. But the service quality was horrific! They forgot orders, the service was very slow. It was evident that there was only one professional waiter and they had some young unprofessional, inexperienced...teenagers (from the owner's family???) to serve the guests. After midnight at 2 AM they closed the service and without any notice they removed everything from the table, including our ordered and paid drinks (half bottle of champagne and our glasses). NEVER AGAIN! Try to avoid this place!More

I have a dinner at the Menta Terasz as a member of the group. By that I would like to say that I can eat only food on the menu (a buffet). Be short - from a very good mushroom soup, all the food was...delicious. We have been in a place looking like a tent with a very warm and friendly atmosphere.More

We were staying in an apartment nearby. It seems that this place "impresses" differently, probably that depends on the daytime. Our experience was quite good, we were on terrace the whole evening. Stayed up to the closure, they twice asked us to leave, but were...polite. The food was ok, mostly I liked the fish soup (the one with paprika), though goulash could have been better.More

Been here today, just to try something new in Budapest. I normally try more fine dining but i was looking for something simple. The restaurant was quite empty on sunday evening, but personell was friendly and helpful (i did not recognize what other people wrote...here about personell). The food was not top class, but perfectly what i was looking for. Simple, but definitely fair quality compared to price. I started with beef tartar which was nice as they served it with egg yellow which is the right way to do it. The taste was fine. Only i would have used some more fresh cut union. Then i took Gulash soup. The soup was well filled. Taste was fine for a soup, only i like it more spicy. Then the maindish for which i chose the beef stew in red wine. It was a bit fatty and salty, but not too bad. The fries i ordered with it were well baked (definitely better then in most hungarian places). So overall it was satisfying, as said, dont go here for fine dining, but for a normal dinner, lunch or evening it is a fine place. With the terras and upstairs area the place is big and comfortable enough. Overall satisfied for the purpose i was lookinhmg for.More

Visited on off chance when walking the city. This is off the normal tourist route. We had a very good lunch and service. The restaurant was not busy but staff took time to explain and translate the menu. Tasty freshly cooked food enjoyed by all

Perhaps the terrible waiter that other reviewers were talking about was already fired by the time we tried this restaurant. We went for an early, early dinner on Sunday and expected the place to be quiet which it was. The lady who was at the...bar seated us and later took our orders. When we asked for recommendations, she gladly told us her favorites in the menu which we opted for. When the food came, I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of food served and how good it actually was. While both dishes were actually savory, one pork dish which, if I remember correctly, was a honey-citrus pork of some kind, was very tender and flavorful. It might also be worth mentioning that dinner with drinks cost just anywhere between $10-15. It is late fall and beginning of winter so the terrace was obviously closed. But we would go back there despite other people's bad reviews. Perhaps the restaurant has revamped their entire service philosophy which included hiring better staff.More

We wanted to have a small dinner with friends. Although the restaurant was almost empty, they forgot half of the dish we ordered and of course half of the drinks as well.the service was awful. I advise everyone to avoid this place!

Totally agree to other reviewers this place is a terrible choice. Sunday evening it was empty and the reason is very obvious. The food is average nothing special (for us it was too salty). Wine was terrible. The waiter was very unpleasant not friendly at...all no smile on his face just doing his job automatically. About ¾ of the restaurant was closed. It’s surprising because the location is great and they have all of the features to operate a good restaurant. Management must be very unprofessional. I remember a few years ago it was always full even the weekdays. Never again!More
