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

My husband I were with a large group of employees from his company that we were visiting in Sopron. We had a reservation at another restaurant nearby but the power was out so we moved on to Graben and they were able to take us...More

We went to dinner and ate cordon bleu and sweet chili chicken.Both were extraordinary. If you are there also try the passionfruit lemonade.

You need to go into the alley and then downstairs to the cellar. It's a cozy place, but the music was badly chosen. We ordered balinka, red wine, garlic soup (bread used as a bowl), another soup that I can't remember and then goose plate...More

Tucked away in an alley in the old town with a beautiful outdoor terrace, Graben Etterem is a good stopping point for lunch or dinner in Sopron. Traditional Hungarian and central European dishes, beer and wine, and desserts are all offered with excellent service. A...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.
