Very delicious traditional Hungarian food and warm welcoming like you feel home. Next time we will be there too. Forget the fancy restaurants, this place is perfect!

Had lunch here after visiting Esztergom basilica. Excellent food, typical Hungarian. I recommend nr 27 ox stew with potato doughnuts. Fair prices. Cosy terrace. Good service, the check did not mention service fee, which we happily added (10% seems to be customary).

Fast and relaxed service, excellent preparation, I recommend to go early for the csülök and palacsinta from the oven.

I visited the restaurant with my family on a hot summer day. The location is very convenient as it’s right next to the basilica and the castle (5 min walk). It was a great relief to sit a chilled restaurant after climbing the basilica stairs...to the top. It’s a real old traditional style Hungarian restaurant with familiar flavours. The food selection is great. Everyone found something they liked. The portion size was very good as well. We had the duck that was cooked to perfection. The venison stew was tender and very flavourful. The “bugaci aprópecsenye” was excellent and we really liked that it was served in a pan. The “Csanaki részeges csülök“ looked just as good as it tasted, my dad enjoyed it very much. Our server was attentive however there were a number of waiters who seemed to be floating about and not doing much while others were doing most of the work. Overall we were very pleased with out meal and the atmosphere and I can only recommend. Heads up: it might be busy so it’s worth booking a table.More

Probably the best place or at least in top 3 restaurants in Esztergom. Famous for its port knuckle but all the food is good.

Late afternoon lunch; menu selection is quite good. Teras is quite large and enough distance between tables during the quarantine days. Price is not so bad. Family, no alcohol, app. 20.000 Ft.

The food is not prepared fresh, none of 6 different dishes that we had. The fish was fried twice. Poor wine selection. Tired, bored waiters.

Ordered one glass of red vine but was billed for 2. The waiter was arrogant and did not enjoy his job so much😀. But still charged 10% service fee. Ordered medium steak but got really well done.

Unfortunately we have visited this restaurant and we received a "csülök" that tasted funny. We asked some mushroom sauce next to it (which was excellent). However it still tasted weird. The potatoes and the Fish soup were very good. Service was ok, just don't order...anything pork. (which supposed to be their specialty... But if the meat is an old male boar... Nothing you can do to help taste better.More

Otherwise there would be no point in finding it. Food was fine but completely uninspired. For a place that is literally named after its featured dish, you would hope they could do one thing well.

After the visit of the cathedral we wanted to try something tasty from Hungarian kitchen, so we have chosen Csulok Csarda. We didn't try csulok, but Halazsle, wild boar paprikas, salad and halushky. And the food was really disappointing as to the expectation we had....The service was slow even at 4pm and the salad with feta was diaaster. You better check the pictures. And as the last thing, they charged the credit card for HUF 1,000 more than was the bill.More

At this restaurant we arrived with the family, that is 4 people. Each one ordered something else and yet we received the food in about 10 minutes. It must be said that the dishes were delicious. I had a little bad opinion when I received...the payment note. Compared to very similar restaurants it is expensive.More
