I really like the price / value rate of this place. You can have a delicious and big portion of meal but it is not more expensive than other restaurants. The place has a special athmosphere, it is like a boat. I highly recommend this restaurant to everyone.

For the last few years I return here with friends and family and I must say I`m never disappointed. The place has become an establishment in the city - it`s been open for at least 15 years now as I can remember..The bar gives you great choice, the menu offers you good variety and the cocktails never fail to impress...

We visited this restaurant during our stay in Debrecen. They have amazing food and really nice and attentive waiters. Everything was perfect. Portions are big and prices not very high. Our waiter recommended me wine and it was lovely. The decor is very interesting.

Great ambience, popular with the locals and a competent chef in the kitchen makes this place better than Palma and a lot better than Krudy. Would have been 4 stars easily if I didn't already give that to Ikon.

Having traveled from England it was a bit weird to be taken to the pub for lunch. Calico Jack has a quirky decor which we loved. Staff is friendly and speak good English. Menu is very extensive, and not at all typically Hungarian. There was something for everyone. Couldn't read all of it, so quickly settled on the daily special... More

We only spent one afternoon in Debrecen and decided to visit this restaurant because it had good reviews on TripAdvisor. We were not dissapointed. The servers were very nice and spoke good English. The food was delicious. We had the turkey breast skewer with feta coated with bacon and roasted pork parts and for dessert the homemade raspberry pulp and... More

Visited this Place more times, and ordered also from here. It´s friendly, the furnishing is cozy, and the staff is mostly nice. The last 2-3 times we had problem with the food, which quality worsened: the pork was underdone, and the taste was also not the best. In spite of this this is a popular Place in Town, but not...
