It's just a tourist restaurant. We chose it after a long day. We entered because of the "cosy" atmosphere. Definitely could have picked something better. But if you are nearby and don't want to walk any more, it's still good value.

That' s what happens when you go places spontaneously. You get an uncomparable experience here and there, but when not in the know, in regards to restaurants, you're basically screwed. Tired after a long day of sightseeing, we sat down there. The only excuse was a hot waitress/hostess (rookie mistake) and fairly tempting street seating. A textbook example of a crappy, tourist restaurant. Huge, oversized portions, bland, expressionless and yuck!
My Caesar salad was drowned (flooded-you decide!) in factory-made, vinegar-based sauce that covered the taste which wasn't there. My friends' duck, goulash and chicken was of the same mould. Noone offered wine refill and/or paid attention whatsoever. Cash, carry and leave. Never again.

Waited ages for our meal, with no explanation. The food was fairly nondescript. We wished we had gone elsewhere.

The restaurant is a bit "too" Hungarian (eg putting paprika and folk clothes everywhere with loud radio music) for my taste. The food is good but not spectacular, the service was very cold and not too polite, prices are OK in this area. All in all, you can find better places in Budapest but if you are around the Kálvin square, this will do.

A restaurant with 56 weeks of Hungarian food in a year smells like fraud. But the food is good and price too.
