“Nice food and atmosphere”
Reviewed December 18, 2012 via mobile

We visited on a monday while we were staying at the leonardo hotel, we had a hungarian platter for two, a little dearer than advertised as it was the chefs special . It was about £32 for us both, loads of food though, and very nice, traditional duo played throughout and friendly service. Try the Palinkhaza liquer stuff, its wonderful

“Honestly the best meal we have had in our travels”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

Cute little place around the corner from our hotel. Service was great. Hubby had steak in a sauce that made us come back 3 times. I had something different each time (the chicken with peach halves was wonderful). We still talk about how wonderful this place was.

“Lovely little restaurant.”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

Visited here on 22nd August 2012. The waitress was more than helpful, recommended specials and gave us a complimentary drink of palinka. The food was beautifully presented and tasted as good and the coffee was also really good.

I don't know if they have this every night but they also had a little band on which added to the atmosphere. Very good quality and would definitely recommend :)

“Great food, homey atmosphere”
Reviewed January 14, 2012

The dinner we had was just divine! Yummy pork medallions, duck breast, good wine... and all these crowned by gipsy music. :-) Love the place.

“Nice restaurant with great food”
Reviewed January 3, 2012

I just went there to celebrate my birthday with my friends. The place has a lovely atmosphere.
The food was great, really tasty. I had pork tenderloins with smoked cheese and garlic sour cream. The meat melted in my mouth. My husbands steak was perfect.
The waiter was very kind with us.
