It's a nice location, staff are friendly, you can sit in or outdoors and there was good live music on the night we went. Menu is fairly limited and food was nicely presented. Price typical for Budapest. So a safe bet but there is much better out there if you look for it.

Yes, this is one of the best dinners i had in a restaurant and especially in eastern Europe.

We walked in here on a saturday, no tables on the outside but still available inside which was great, did read some reviews before we went here so had som expectations of good food. It was so much more, the chef is clearly very talented at interested in finding new ways of cooking the hungarian kitchen.

For the food you receive this is still really value for money if you compare to what a dinner like this would cost back home.

We had a great table outside and they had a small live jazz band playing. It was a wonderful setting. The food quality was really great and they also provided excellent service

We, a group of 3, had dinner here in June 2014. We had reserved a table and were shown to a table on the mezzanine. The restaurant was nicely decorated (not over-themed) and the waiters were helpful, knowledgeable and courteous. The food was amazing. Whatever we had it was superb. For this standard of cooking, you'd expect to pay a lot more.

This was the best restaurant I've been to in Budapest. Right down the line, from the Food to the Service to the atmosphere; best place in Budapest. I even enjoyed the neighborhood which is a bit away from the typical touristy spots and offered a great walk back to our hotel. (The neighborhood should be seriously re-visited.) The restaurant had a laid-back local feel. The food and the ambiance was typically Hungarian but welcoming and familiar to an international palette & guest. The waiter gets top marks for his service and explaining the food and wine (in great English). Honestly, two thumbs up. Business, Friends or Romance. If you have 1 dinner in Budapest - this is your place.
