Foodie heaven, with great attentive service, cooked by a chef who really cares about food. All cocktails highly recommend. We had Goulash soup, beef Tatar and duck liver starters, all delicious. Followed by the famous mangalitza pork tenderloin cooked to perfection for main course. Enjoying...a bottle of their best Bikevér red wine. Some people have written here that they are small portions, but I assure you that we were full up after three courses. Great atmosphere. Highly recommend it and we would not hesitate to come back. Don’t miss out on a wonderful meal!More

We had a family dinner at the IKON. The waiter greeted us politely and attentively. We received relevant and honest answers to our questions about the menu. Expertise, amazing harmony of the flavors and a pleasant atmosphere. The menu was great, there is enough choice...for children too. We had a very memorable evening, I dare say it was an iconic experience.More

Had an incredible dinner at this restaurant on our recent trip to Debrecen last week. Two of us had steak which was delicious and perfectly cooked. While it is a bit more expensive than other restaurants around, it was definitely worth it and much cheaper...than steakhouses in London. The truffle butter with bread as a starter was just sublime.More

We had a reservation for 10 and the table was set and ready to go. Our servers were attentive without being f overbearing. Every dish was elegant and delicious. The dishes are beautifully presented. Would pay $200 for this meal in a US restaurant.

I’m a traveler and love gastronomy of different restaurants ! This one wasn’t good choice comparing to other restaurants in Debrecen! Poor food and quantity and overpriced comparing to Hungary ! Wouldn’t recommend it ! Many others have more choices at reasonable prices . Unsure...why on different items have different additional taxes??? Seems was a policy to rip off foreigners ! I felt ripped off ! Anyway never and never repeat the experience! And NEVER recommended it to anyone !!!More

Small portions, not enough even for a little kid. Rough duck breast (duck breast is NOT a steak, please!). Overpriced. The waitors are very polite though. I would have preferred better food, even at the price of the waitors be less professionals

One of the better dining experiences in countryside Hungary. Modern, but not "wannabe", interesting twists of traditional and non traditional Hungarian food from great ingredients. Listen to the wine recommendation, well figured pairings. Well done Ikon 👍

We visited Debrecen in connection with the European Handball Championship, and had booked a table at IKON. It was a wonderful culinary experience ranging from appetizers to desserts and tasty cocktails. And we had the most amazing waiter, with a high level of service and...a great overview of our orders for all 10 persons. IKON thank you for a wonderful evening, from the 10 Danes who visited you on 14/1 2022More

We just jumped in to have a quick lunch. The ramen with duck meat and alleged home made noodles seemed interesting. The soup was too Soy saucy, but the noodle was overcooked, no texture just melted in your mouth. I think a 10 years old...makes better instant soup like this. Also that noodle was not home made, and one from the cheap kind. They knew it, did not even asked if we liked the soup. I think in Debrecen at the Délibab restaurant you get better noodle. Still the place looked awesome, the service was nice and fancy. I am sure if we buy something else I could have written a better review.More
