“A gem of a restaurant in Jewish district”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

This is the second time I've been here in two years and have to say it was very good both times. The atmosphere is lovely, with live music each night. They are very talented musicians. The food is also delicious and the portion sizes spot on. Being a vegetarian it's not always easy to find places that have good vege food but the Rose does - fantastic aubergine pate and toast for a starter and lovely mushroom pappardelle for a main. For the meat eaters there are plenty of interesting Hungarian dishes and it's all very reasonably priced. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.

“Lovely small restaurant with live music”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

We very much enjoyed a delicious hungarian dinner at this charming restaurant. We met another couple who were from Australis at the next table who also found the restaurant quite nice. My main of meat and potatoes was a bit unbalanced with much more potato than meat, but nonetheless was very flavorful. The desert of Apple pie was sumptuous. My wife had the Tiramisu which was delicious and more than she could finish so we brought the remainder back to our B&B. The waiter recommended an excellent wine that was at the middle of the price range and was very nice local red wine.

“Very nice dinner and music”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

We booked this restaurant based on other reviews long prior to our visit to Budapest, we were not disappointed. The cheese soup starter was very good indeed. My Brasso style platter was very flavorful even with more potatoes and less meat than I might have liked. The treat was the Apple Pie desert. We asked the waiter to recommend a wine as we were unfamiliar with Hungarian wine. He recommended a "Bull's Blood" which we have found is a common Hungarian Red which was very good. We would definitely eat here again.

“Everything's roses here.”
Reviewed June 10, 2014

We stumbled across this great little place on our short break to Budapest. The atmosphere was typically Hungarian even down to the on site violinist and accompanist. The food was lovely and inexpensive. Recommended.
