“Lovely Experience!!! ”
Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

We went to Lado Cafe on Monday night and there was a jazz duo performance from 8pm-9pm (Myrtillés A Swinguistique Jazz Estje). The service staff was attentive and polite even though the restaurant was crowded.

Our orders took a while to be served but the food servings were generous and presented beautifully. The food was delicious and lived up to the wonderful reviews that we read on Trip Advisor.

The only downside was that the air-conditioning was not strong enough and it was rather warm in the restaurant, especially during this time of the year. Nevertheless, we enjoyed the dining experience and will return again!

“Wonderful Music, Good Food”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

The Hot Club of Hungary with Django Reinhardt inspired jazz are fine musicians and frequent visitors to the Lado Cafe which has high quality music every night. The food is good and the service is friendly. I was very glad to find it by chance.
