We had a party of 40 people. The event was well organized, the food was excellent. The staff is professional, friendly and attentive. The entire event was seamless (I've organized it from Canada with little effort). All the dishes were warm and delicious. They made...my mother's 80 Birthday memorable. The restaurant offered live music and we enjoyed it very much. All of the above came with a very reasonable price. We eat there every time when visiting the town and it is always a pleasant experience.More

As no motorways reach Pápa, this fine town is usually out of the beaten path for most tourists. The great Esterházy Castle, the protestant theology faculty operating since 1531, the Pannonia Reformata museum, the only Neo-Renaissance synagogue in the country or the spa are all...good reasons to put this country town on your destination list. Once you are in Pápa, however, finding a decent place to eat is more difficult. The only good exception is Gólyafészek (Stork Nest). Simple but cosy interior, attentive service, very good food, large portions, Hungarian dishes are all supports to my statements. It is worth making reservations, as the tables sell out fast any time.More

The food is tasty, and the portions is pretty big as well. I had a gulasj soup with bread by the side, the soup is big and tasty but the bread can be slightly to dry

Came here with a group of friends and everyone enjoyed their meals. I had chicken in red pepper sauce with dumplings. I attached a picture. Someone else ordered the goulash and other ordered pork or salmon and different things and everything looked good. The server...was nice and spoke decent English, but I tried asking what else he recommends and he didn’t understand what I was trying to ask. Someone we were with said the pork knuckle was delicious also. Price was cheap for my food and water, about $7 or 1,900 HUF. I posted a pics of the menu with prices.More

We drove via Papa on our way from Budapest to Bratislava. Their goulash soup was absolutely delicious and really reasonably priced. Service was very quick and attentive. It felt like being at a traditional home.

Ask most locals where the best Hungarian food is, they'll say Golyafeszek, also known as the Stork's Nest. It's consistently good, with kind staff.

Lunch with a large group usually takes time. We had a. Ice time, good dishes, excellent cabbage and cucumber salads. The goulash soups were excellent and the desert (palacsinta) was also tasty.

Having enjoyed eating here in the past, my last experience was unpleasant. Seated inside, it was quite warm and our party was hot and sweating from the heat. There was an ac above our heads and three times I asked the waitress to turn it...on. Three times she said yes. No times did she ever turn it on. That is very poor service. Additionally, the food was just so-so. Portions were not as big as we remembered in the past. An average time at what many people think is one of the best restaurants in Papa. I will think twice before I go back again.More

Popped in here for our evening meal later on at night. Really good selection on the menu with plenty to suite everyone. The meals were excellent and more than enough to stuff us all. Prices were very reasonable. We're pretty big eaters and option 81,82...on the menu is meant for 2 to share. Think it would easy do 3 or 4 people. :) but a good challenge if your up for it.More

If you happen to be in the twin of Pápa Hungary don't miss a chance to eat here. They serve all the typical Hungarian foods along with some of the exotic game meats as well. The service is always great here and the goon is...nagyon finom! You can't go wrong here.More

There is a reason this restaurant is choice number one in Pápa. It serves traditional Hungarian food (like most places in Pápa), but the portions are big and it tastes fantastic. A bonus play area out back for the kids, even if it is a...bit rundown. Live evening music, and great patio seating for warm days. A popular choice among foreigners and localsMore
