Pass through the arch on the east side of Karolyi utca and in the courtyard, on the left you will see it.

Lovely arched room, friendly service and first class food at astonishing prices.

There was no one else on the Sunday night we ate there but we were a lively group ourselves so it didn't matter.

Thank tremend

This review echoes most of the others: easy to miss, delightful to experience. My wife had spotted it last year when here for book research, but no time to try it. This was our last dinner in Budapest, at the close of a warm Sunday walk along the Danube, early for dining in B-P, so only a few diners initially. We were outside, though we could see inside the old Karolyi mansion. Food excellent; dessert, superb (fantastic apricot tarts!). Nearby, in the gardens, a set-up for small concerts. Definitely a repeat, and a lovely way to close our trip.

The only tricky thing about this place was finding it but just as we were about to consider other establishments, we were helped out by staff in a nearby travel agency. Perhaps others had the same problem, as only about twenty diners appeared during our stay.
On a fine evening everyone ate outside by the attractive courtyard and gardens, complete with birdsong. We were afforded a high standard of attention, together with good food and wine. After our meal we mentioned to the waiter that it was a special occasion for the two of us, whereupon a couple of large glasses of Calvados were brought to our table at no extra charge. The whole evening was absolutely perfect and at an agreeably low cost.

The menu is on a stand at the building entrance - you go under the porch and come out into the courtyard. You have to be curious to find it !! We had lovely hot weather so tables only outside in a calm peaceful surrounding with a piano player. We had a really good meal and drank some very good Talsker wine. Very professional service and as we chatted to the staff a lot we got free digestives !! This place was so good and great value for money if you compared it to the typical tourist trap restaurants that we went back for a second meal during our long week-end. Thanks to the staff who made our stay very enjoyable - we were staying at the Budapest Museum Central hotel which was also just next to the Mercure hotel at Kalvin Ter metro.
