We found out about this restaurant having seen the reviews on TripAdvisor and so glad we opted for this ahead of a few others we were looking at. It is easy enough to find, about a 10 minute walk from the nearest Metro stop, set in a quiet street just up the hills off the Danube.
We were given a friendly greeting on our arrival and the staff were knowledgable and happy to give us their time when we asked about certain drinks/dishes. Staff spoke fluent English which was brilliant as our Hungarian is appalling, and we felt totally at ease.
Food was unbelievable! Probably the most enjoyable meal I have had this year, and was great value. The dishes were beautiully presented, well-sized and, most importantly, tasted great. The staff who waited on us were attentive without being pushy, and helped make for a great evening. Service was timed very well, with no long waits, though the restaurant was fairly quiet so was to be expected.
Our food bill came to around £35 and included two starters, a side, two mains and a dessert. Where we couldn't help but overindulge was in the drinks department: we spent a further £35 on two gorgeous bottles of wine and a couple of shots. There was an extensive wine list and it was a special occasion, so we splashed out a bit. Beers and soft drinks were very reasonably priced, and had we opted for these instead we'd have spent less than £50 rather than £70. This included an automatic 15% service charge, which I disagree with but I suppose is increasingly common these days. We gave a tip on top of this however as it really was a near-perfect meal.
