“Best Pub in Budapest”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

This pub is really the best place to eat good cooked food in Budapest! Portions are so large that they can't be eaten by 1 person, especially goulash soup! Every dish we tried was very tasty, also you should definetely try hot wine there!
We enjoyed being there!

“Fantastic !”
Reviewed January 13, 2013 via mobile

Pub For Sale is a must if you visit Budapest. Unique atmosphere, interesting decoration for a pub, happy crowd, cheerful service, GREAT food in extra large portions. If you are 2 people order for 1! Have the goulash soup, it was the BEST goulash we had during our stay at the city.

“Definitely recommended”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

Design, atmosphere, live music and of course the food - I enjoyed everything! I like the way they keep you busy while you're waiting for the food - first, you can spend some time reading the notes on the walls. Second, you can eat the peanuts :) Like I said, food was great, but beware - the dishes are enormous. For instance, letcho is big enough for 2 people.

“Great pub food, better atmosphere!”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

Wife and I had lunch here. The food was great and lots of it. However it's the atmosphere of this unusual establishment that really made the difference. I would recommend this place to everybody.

“Great food, great atmosphere!”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Since we had to wait thirty minutes before we could eat (we didn't make a reservation) we decided to drink something at the lower floor. The interior is definitley worth a visit. Pinda shells should also be thrown on the floor, as demonstrated to us by a waiter.

After twenty minutes we were asked if we wanted to eat downstairs instead of at the upper floor. We said yes and half an hour later our diner was ready. First off, their portions are LARGE. In general their main dishes are around 1.5 times the size of an average meal. You can also request a smaller portion (around half the size) for 75% of the price. We had salmon with potatoes and roasted turkey with oregano potatoes. Both dishes were excellent. In total we paid 7000 HUF (two persons, drinks and main meal).

Would recommend this place to anyone.
