Very nice place, food was excellent, large dishes. Very big variety of food, and everything was good. The service is good, English speaking and very polite. Prices are more than fare.

This review is difficult to me. Johns Pub looks nice, promising. So, we decided to have lunch there, but left disappointed. Design and ambiente: modern, nice. No problem with that Food: we had burgers, which were average. Not bad at all, but also nothing extra...special. But the chicken in cheese sauce was tasty. The problem: the staff. Maybe, we offended the staff by sitting directly to a not cleaned table, or it was due to the language barrier, but we experienced such ignorance. The full-beard guy was nice, but his colleagues were terrible. They left us waiting for ordering and cleaning the table for quiet long time. They even didn’t allowed us to sit inside, when it started to rain and our table on the terrace was not covered, without even saying sorry, just acting, like we were disturbing them. Most of the stuff works not effectively, running on the place there and back, but leaving guests without ordering, not taking used dishes by going back, etc. Here I really say sorry to the nice guy, but girls destroyed our stay. For us, never again.More

Scroll down for English. A hely többet ígért FB oldaluk alapján, mint amit adott. Pizza egyáltalán nem volt. A garnélás tészta szét volt fōzve, a grillezett kecskesajt alatt a saláta száraz volt, se dresszing nem volt benne, se semmi más zöldség. A cheddar burgerben rántott...sajt volt. A sült krumpli szottyadt volt. A felszolgálással nem volt gond. This place promised more than it gave. There was no pizza at all. The prawn pasta was overcooked. The salad accompanying the goat cheese was dry. The cheddar burger contained one big piece of breaded cheese. The fries weren't fresh. Service was ok.More

Where to start….? First of all: the most ARROGANT waiter (the baldheaded stressed out man) I ever met in my life (and yes I have travelled a lot!). Not only to us but towards his colleagues as well. That’s a NO NO!! As part of...the menu is in Hungarian our request to translatie a few words was returned with a huge sigh. I almost forgot to mention the music: a non-stop DJ mix of techno music which caused me a flashback to the 90’s when I used to frequent techno clubs. But while people are having dinner: think twice… Regarding the food: how dare you call this a ‘Caesar salad’? A magnifiying glass would have been handy for the search for chicken. Yes the pizza is well done but when asking for ham and receiving minced meat…? And ordering two glasses of wine and a full bottle is served? Anyhow: do yourself a favour and avoid this place.More

We've visited the place in an evening after a family gathering. The service was nice, fast and professional. Our steaks arrived just as asked and were tender, well-seasoned and tasty. Very good value for the price, with American atmosphere.

The quality of food offered here surprised us, so far this is the best meal we had in Keszthely. Cousine here isn't authentic Hungarian, but their grill dishes are truly great.

When we arrive at about 10p.m. on friday there where very few people cause it was a rainy day. At arrival we asked if there was food but no only drinks are available at 10 p.m. Since the place is written to be open till...2 a.m. we expected something else. Whatever we had fun since I found special beers in the fridge.... we werent offered any...anyway I gave it a very good because we had fun. After a little while the stuff became friendly and helped us finding the best choice of beers...More

We found this place on TripAdvisor. Looked promising, garden was with nice tables and blankets. Firstly, we ordered mojitos, which were the worst ever. Just sparkling water with lime (tasteless), without sugar (which we asked for later) and also seemed like virgin, however, personnel said...it was with rum (highly doubt it). Secondly, we ordered burgers, which were with frozen meat and tasted a bit weird. Very dry food overall. Do not recommend!!!!!More

The only reason I am giving the place 2 stars is because it is very attractive to the eye, but everything else was bleh (I don’t know how to better describe it). The ordered cocktails were missing ingredients and no visible taste or smell of...alcohol although we even asked again if those were virgin drinks or not, apparently they were, but nothing tasted like it. Secondly, we took burgers and they were just plain, nothing special about them. Also the meat tasted as heated frozen patty, it seemed blocky, not meat like and honestly, my stomach is not thanking the meal at all. Would not recommend to anyoneMore

We were greeted and sat down promptly. The waiter spoke a little German and English also (THATS good service!) What we ordered was fairly quickly made and served. The food is great and at a fair price.. we will be going back again!

After visiting in Cadillac museum we were hungry. This was almost opposite the road and should be more recommented in Cadillac museum. We entered a few minutes after it was opened and that was important. While we waited our food there came ppl all the...time. Soon it was crowded and luckily they brought us our desserts at the same time than lunch. We ordered their menu of the day, from starter to dessert. It was delicious with affordable price. The place is like US style with country music. If you like that, we strongly recommend this restaurant!More
