“Quite pleasant,good location”
Reviewed August 24, 2014

Having arrived by train after a long journey and staying close by, this restaurant served its purpose. We sat outside,in fact no one was inside and whilst my husband had the goulash I had a steak. This was very good, cooked to order but you had to choose from a selection of sides and sauces at extra cost. I had French fries and a bernaise sauce which was very good. With 2 glasses of red wine the price was about 12000huf . I am sure it was top price but as I said it served a need and was a pleasant place to dine. Service was ok.the menu was quite extensive.

“Nice outdoor setting and Good Food...”
Reviewed August 22, 2014

The duck and donut potato pancakes and mixed grill were delicious! The outdoor setting near the square offered a lovely setting. The disc jockey's music was very soothing.

“Nothing special”
Reviewed August 22, 2014

I was drawn in to this place by the fairylights above it and the incredible interior (although we were seated outside- no one was inside for some reason). After we ordered I read the reviews and became quite worried so we didn't have high hopes.

The menu has the prices in HUF and EUR but the EUR are much higher than the current exchange rate so please never pay in EUR! Our total bill showed as €55 on the bill (but we paid in HUF) and the actual HUF to EUR exchange made it more like €44/45.

The food was alright, we had duck breast and a beef steak. Nothing amazing, but edible. Overpriced for what it was, neither came with any potatoes or veg, so we had to order a side of potatoes (we went for the new potatoes and they were deep fried- egh!) which were not good.

As with many places in Budapest they take a service charge which I absolutely detest. One table queried it and the waiter shouted at them that it was 'like tax'. No it's not, service is voluntary.

Overall, not as bad as some reviews have said but also not great either, wouldn't particularly recommend it, but if you've already sat down and have ordered, don't worry too much!

“Nice food, bad service”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

We ate here when we visited Budapest recently, the food was very good I had a wrap and my girlfriend had a chicken dish. Both arrived in good time and were really tasty and reasonably priced (based on UK prices each dish worked out to about £5).

We ate outside under some parasols in a nice area which seemed secluded because of how it was decorated even though there was a constant stream of people passing by us. The restaurant seemed clean and there were plenty of staff working.

One bad thing was the service though, the waiter who served us was terrible. I actually couldn't believe this person had been allowed to get a job as a waiter. First we ordered drinks and our food menus were being taken out of our hands before we were even asked about food. When we stopped him taking the menus and placed a food order he didn't seem very interested but did successfully manage to relay our order to the kitchen. Service was the same whenever anything was brought out to our table, it was just put down and left. Maybe this was because we didn't speak much Hungarian (he seemed to have good English from what little he grunted) but either way the manner of the server was bad.

“Tooo expansive for the quality”
Reviewed August 17, 2014 via mobile

The caprese is too expansive for that quality. Tomatoes taste like water and the mozarella has online an idea of 'bufala' in its taste. And why is there so many rucola?? I have an idea...
But, service was good and friendly!
