Just visited this nice little place. Being generally quite dissatisfied with eastern european food, this was a suprisingly above par. Good place to bring the guys and get a sturdy, rustique dinner.

We visited with friends after hearing very good things about the restaurant together with its popularity with local residents. It is an intimate bistro with fab decor - the walls are littered with articles, artefacts and curiosities from the Hungarian journalist community, creating a unique dining experience.

But service was not very friendly at all. We were made to feel as outsiders as it is a high-end establishment catering for well-off locals. The food was good but we've definitely had better elsewhere - just around the corner in fact! - at much more comfortable prices too!

Fried goose liver here is better than in France - you just cry for more!

Ambience with live music (could play a bit longer even for a fewer guests ;) is just fantastic. Waiters speak English well.

Home-made lemonade was great.

very nice food but VERY pricey compared to other restaurants of equal quality in the area. Went here the first night we were in budapest as it was late and the hotel recommended it. The food was lovely and the staff were very nice but the bill came to over €80 for two starters, two mains and one dessert plus a bottle of wine. Not bad for in Ireland but expensive compared to other restaurants we ate in subsequently in budapest.

We had a nice dinner here my girlfriend had an excellent duck breast salad which was really well prepared not over cooked! I had a mangalica pork dish which was Amazing!!!!!!!!!!!! Really ! Service was not very attentive .....but they're where busy and there was a lot of foreigners there.......did not feel authentic Hungarian maybe that's why it was pricey ......food was great but .....the rest was lacking
