“Very Good Food - Excellent Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

There were five of us - all of whom enjoyed our meals. The food was very good indeed and recommendations for wine were informed and appreciated. We were given the opportunity to taste samples of wine before choosing. The welcome and service was excellent with friendly, English speaking staff. Service was included in the bill and that was made very clear before paying. We were also told that we had paid too much (which was intentional). We noticed that the staff were very accommodating and friendly towards children. We went back for a second time and did not regret it!

“Civilised Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

We hadn't made a reservation, assuming that mid-week and arguably out of season (late Sept) that would not be a problem. In the event, we were very lucky to take the only table that had not been booked. We found the food and service to be excellent both in quality and value and the recommended low cost wine better than excellent! Ambience was relaxed, friendly and attentive, in short - a civilised dinner.

Booked this restaurant before we arrived in Budapest and we were glad we did. Lovely atmosphere with very friendly English speaking staff. Good value for the quality of food.

“Wonderful dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

We received an unsolicited recommendation of this restaurant from our hotel. I had previously found it on TA before we left home. A great sign ! The restaurant is rather small- a reservation is recommended. It is located a few minutes walk from the Opera.
Our server was knowledgeable and engaged. Great wine and food recommendations! We had the foie gras and tomato mozzarella with a sour cream sauce to start- both delicious. For our main courses, we had the duck with cherry sauce and the deer ragout- both excellent with a real Hungarian flair. The prices were reasonable. Service was included. A great evening!

“very knowledgeable staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

food was excellent. waiters made very good suggestions for wine to accompany meal. 10% service charge is added to your bill which the waiter did make us aware of. We were happy to pay that as felt we had had very good service.
