The kids loved it, I had to pay extra for ice. We went to back the second time, but at 8pm the kitchen was closed, so we asked to come back earlier the next day, so did we. Third time the same waiter told us...we cannot walk in from the street, at least 4-5 days in advance we have to do our reservations. Rude staff, gives inconsistent information. Serious management problems. If you want to avoid the snobbing of your kids, just go elsewhere.More

The service was slow and the stuff neglected their guests . The meal was below the expectation for the price paid. The menu is unreadable and the stuff does not know what they sell. train your stuff! The served beer is awful….all types we tried....And the served wine is not from a good choice and really pricey in this wine & poor region…wines in Italy and France are cheaper but better…. A lot of space to improve. Good luck!More

I have been in medieval restaurants before but this was really outstanding. The service, music and the interior is very well harmonized. We were four of us and got a huge wooden tray of food everything on it what you can imagine. The alcohol free...bier is very nice and not recognizable that is alcohol free but tasty. The portion was so huge that all got well fed and brought home a big portion as well. If you go to Eger don't miss it!More

Huge portions, medievally themed interior, exterior and staff. Food ok, visit just for atmosphere. Waiting time a bit longer, but acceptable.

I have spent 5 days in Eger, and in spite of the fact that I review only/mostly hotels, I decided to review this time the restaurant we visited. The reason for this is primarily the unfortunate phenomenon we can experience, that the quality of service...has dropped dramatically in the recent past. Not only in Eger, but generally in the whole country. The reason for this we know, the vast majority of the qualified and ambitious workforce has left the country and works abroad. The introduction to my restaurant reviews in Eger will be the same, as it applies to all the places I have visited, and the language of the reviews will be English, so the majority of visiting foreign tourists can also understand. My goal is not the bitter evil-minded revenge, as some may accuse, but the pure goodwill to urge some change before it is too late. First restaurant we visited was Excalibur, the medieval restaurant in the heart of Eger, located in Érsekkert. The location of the restaurant is excellent, the furniture the dinner sets, glasses, cups, plates are quite authentic, although it is quite apparent that the place would require some refurbishment. The food I would say was really excellent, including the soups and also the plate with different kinds of meat and side dishes. My feelings regarding the two waiters are quite mixed. First my wife entered the yard of the restaurant with my kids, and in spite of the fact that one of the waiters was already out, standing there alone, and the place was completely empty, no greetings, no welcome, not a single helping word has left his mouth. As soon as I arrived (couple of minutes later), his attitude changed, and from that moment he was kind and helpful. The other waiter on the other hand remained completely indifferent and unfriendly, it was absolutely visible that he is just simply fed up to be there. So to sum up, the place is well located, the food is really good, but the service would require some improvement.More

The decoration is awesome. The waiters are really helpful and pleasant as well. The food is very delicious. It is quite expensive but absolutely worth it.

It's a wannabe medieval restaurant, with candle light and harpsichord music in the background, but without adequate heating near to the wall in the winter time. The food is exactly what you expect from a hungarian "medieval restaurant": simple, large portions rich in fat. But...it's absolutely ok, since that's why you're going to a medieval restaurant. However, the wine is quite expensive...More

We found this place on Tripadvisor on our way from a bath in the close by town of Demjen to Szilvasvarad. We absolutely loved it. The food was very good and I would consider as reasonably priced considering the location and the theme of the...place. The waitresses are friendly and the portion of food was good. There is an excellent gelato place close by where you can have a nice desert😋More

The restaurant is hidden in beautiful park but for sure it's worth to find it. You have to come hungry, cause portions are quite huge. Lot of grilled meats, delicoius pickles and very good wines/beers. The interior is stylized for a medival castel, maybe a...little bit too dark for me, but food and service were excellent.More

This is the perfect place to feel the ancient times starting from plates and finishing with presentation and music. The foods was very good, especially soups in bread! Big portions, deserving the money spent. Very friendly personal.

I definitely recommend this place to visit. The food is great, the portion sizes are huge. What struck us first on arrival is the dim lighting of the place. It was actually so dark that it took us a few minutes to get used to...it. There were only candles as a source of light. While some might like it we could barely see our food.More

The atmosphere is unique, candles, wooden spoon/plates. The soups are above average. I tasted 5 of the main course and while the side dishes/sauces are very good the meats had average taste or even bellow. Price are little high. Friendly service.

We reserved a table at Excalibur for a family lunch in December. Since the terrace was closed (very cold outside, brrr), guests were seated indoor which has a relatively small capacity compared to the terrace. The athmosphere was nice: wooden benches, tables and plates, around-the-neck...napkins, discrete authentic background music (from tape. The musician is on leave in off-season, I guess), and no other lighting but candlelight. After ordering it took maybe 20 minutes until the plates arrived. We weren't bothered by it, sipping the beer of the house in the meantime and taking a look into the kitchen sometimes (they had nothing to hide there). All the plates we ordered tasted very delicious, and the portions were so huge there wasn't any room for a dessert or a coffee! My venison stew in bread bowl, however, had a minor default. In the menu it wasn't mentioned that the stew contains mushrooms. I do not like mushrooms, and since generally they are not necessary ingredients of stews, I didn't ask the waitress about it, so I was disappointed when I discovered the truth. It was only written that it is made from hind leg with a famous local wine (Bull's blood of Eger) and onions (a quintessential ingredient for stews, why did they highlight it?). Furthermore, we ordered the smaller portion of beer (in the menu prices were shown for 3 and 5 dl). The waitress told us that they only have a mug of 4 dl. Come on! Write the price of one dl of the beverage, so nobody will feel cheated. On top of that, this menu was written with the worst type of Medieval(ish) wording and the "compulsory" Gothic fonts. To sum up, it is a cozy place in wintertime with great food and kind staff, in Eger's beautiful park. Totally recommendable. Special appreciation for the decoration (the stocks, the suit of armour and of course the Excalibur). Weren't for the mistakes in the menu, I would have rated it 5 points.More

The food was good and the presentation was fun, however, there is hardly any food for vegetarians and the service was pretty poor. We were ignored most of the time and ended up waiting a long time for our food

Food was fab, great for a themed night and groups. Great fun. Friendly staff. The platter for 4 was impressive. Only let down was the terrible musician who became rather annoying.
