We visited the restaurant with family and a dog, possibly it was the first restaurant visit for the dog (5 years old, rescued), but she behaved well... and she was after her dinner, and we were hungry. The building is old, but the place furnished...More

Lonely Planet recommends this place as a ‘cosy cellar’. The building is certainly old, but over-renovation and furniture choices have removed whatever atmosphere it might have once had. The modern chairs and overall decoration make it cold and uninviting. Also, radio was playing through the...More

We ate traditional Hungarian goulash and garlic soup served in a loaf of bread. While the soup was somewhat average, the goulash was a disaster, too salty (so much you couldn't eat it), and the spices tasted funny. The food wasn't too expensive, but definitely...More

Excellent hungarian cuisine, very extensive menu, super service.
We saw Austrians who had obviously driven over the border to eat lunch there.

My partner had the ganseleber (foie gras) which is often over-cooked in Hungary. In this case it was perfect -- "melt in your mouth" perfect -- just cooked on the outside, soft and liquid on the inside. Heavenly!

I had the roast goose leg, crispy skin and yet moist on the inside. This dish is very easy to over-cook i.e. the meat ends up dry. But once again this was really delicious.

BIG PLUS: for the quality, the prices were very decent. It was very near the centrum (old city) so you might expect higher prices. But no we were pleasantly surprised! What an unexpected treat on the long drive to Budapest.
