About 20 entree choices all typical Hungarian with a unique variety of pork options. Soups are all fantastic particularly the tomato and goulash soups. Reasonably priced and located on a side street. Quaint inside and out

Nice traditional restaurant, nice service, good value for money. The dishes are ideal for meat and especially pork lovers. Quite big quantities, and not really light food specialities, so don't go there having little apetite. Nice place for smaller family events or reunions.

The food here is very good, it is very traditional Hungarian in a great atmosphere. It is opposite the cathedral so attracts a lot of tourists. Locals also enjoy the restaurant but it is a bit expensive for the value. The service could be improved.

We were sick of meat so we had fish that night: the trout soup and the fried catfish were good. Staff was ok BUT this was the only restaurant in Hungary (out of 7) that put on my bill a 10% service charge. That was extremely disappointing expecially because it wasn't written on the menu.

I have been there with a foreign friend and we had dinner. The place is lovely, has a good athmosphere. The service is excellent, we received our food quite quickly, people are smiling. The strawberry soup is raspberry in fact, but it is delicious. :-) It is a translation issue in the menu. I ate "baking dish knuckle" for one... More

Food was great. Wine , both white and red, was good. But what a rip off. It is stated on the menu that all charges are included. But still, when they understand you are tourists, they overcharged with every possible stuff :-( :-( :-(

We have visited this place for dinner twice, because the we loved the colourfulness of the Hungarian cuisine. Food was absolutely perfect and tasteful. Staff could be much friendlier. If you are not paying with forint watch out for not being RIPPED OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you like traditional Hungarian food I can recommend halaszle (fish soup) - one of best I had. If you want to try something new, that tastes like heaven, definitely try raspberry soup, it's delicious. It's shame that stuff wasn't as good as food was. Service took too long, they were nut much friendly and when we came early next... More

Situated not far from the huge Cathedral, we were able to sit outside for lunch out of the sun. A cooling beer and a glass on dry white Hungarian wine were welcome additions as I ordered Camembert and charred vegetables as a hot entree, expecting deep fried crumbed Camembert. Rather it came cooked like Haloumi - didn't quite work. My... More
