The place which makes the difference…in dizzy autumn day it’s harsh to enjoy Szentendre until you enter Aranysárkány Vendéglő. A cosy family place with local meals, great selection of wines and relaxing atmosphere… the kids love the host since they get appropriate attention…. And parents...as well since the final bill is much below expectations….More

This is by far, the best restaurant we have been to in Hungary. If you go to Budapest, take a 30 minute side trip to this charming town and have lunch or dinner here. Attila, the owner, is so gracious. The food is unforgettable! An...intimate atmosphere with wonderful service and the flavors that will remain on your palette for a very long time.More

Just an outstanding experience in all respects. Both a wonderful atmosphere and a culinary delight. Attila (son and father) and Monica were wonderful hosts and every dish we had, from the soup, to the meal of Paprika Chicken, to the dessert was fantastic. Best meal...we had in Hungary! Authentic and delicious!! If you are in Szentendre, don’t miss this wonderful place. You won’t regret it!!More

The Golden Dragon (this is its name in English) is a “golden nugget” in a very cozy small city. It doesn’t have a terrace, neither Danube view, but the quality of the food and service are at a top level. They have a nice collection...of fruit brandys and be aware that if you want to try them all is possible to leave the place in “all four”… The appetizers are all good (goose liver pate, fried cheese and marrow), and from the main courses I recommend the goose liver and the goose steak. You must live some generous place for the dessert, because the pancakes in marzipan sauce are the best I ever had! The staff is very nice and friendly and they speak fluently English. Nagyon köszönömMore

I went to this restaurant with my family to have lunch, as we saw it has really good reviews, and indeed it was the best choice! They have top quality food and variety of dishes, with vegetarian options and traditional dishes from the Hungarian cuisine...like Goulash soup. I had raspberry soup and truffled risotto, everything super tasty! Moreover, the service was friendly and very quick. The restaurant is pet friendly! I would recommend it with no doubt.More

This is intended to be an upscale restaurant. The menu is abundant in truffle, goose liver and expensive stuff, but in both dishes I ordered the generous balsamic, salt and pepper kind of buried the goose, the salmon and the truffle. The salmon was served...on penne (strange choice) and it wasn't home made but industrial. Good durum pasta, but not home made as you'd expect in an upscale restaurant. Considering what I ate and at what price it sound ridiculous to complain, but the owners run an excellent restaurant with good service, good ingredients and tenting menu, it would take so little to go up one step to real gourmet experience. Just go easier on spices, let the original flavours float, and get a pasta machine. I hope they do .More
