Came for cocktails, had to wait a while at the bar, about 15minutes before being served but head person noticed this and offered complimentary snacks.

Cocktails are insane, nothing is done to cut corners, each drink is constructed to the same perfection as the last. I suppose you dont mind waiting to drink them then!

I can imagine this place gets rammed during peak season with hens, stags etc all of which create a different vibe if your planning a couples night out but its big enough to retreat to quieter areas.

What could have been an awkward experience turned into one of the best and most fun experiences of our trip. Originally my partner had booked us in to have my birthday dinner there on the Saturday night but as he was feeling unwell we changed this to the Sunday instead and then at the last minute decided to cancel our dinner booking and change it to just a drink instead at bar instead. The staff were still super enthusiastic wishing me a happy birthday when I arrived, then leading us up to the bar where they made some of the tastiest cocktails we've had in a while. We were then surprised with a cheeky chilli, passionfruit and vodka cocktail shot on the house - one of the most delicious drinks we've ever had. Chatting away to us we were then given an impromptu gin masterclass with complementary tastings of a variety of different drinks gins from all around the world. We learnt more about gin in that half hour then we have in our years of drinking it. Expert staff, gorgeous setting and tasty snacks also. We'll definetly make sure we fit in a dinner next time we're in Budapest! Reasonably priced for the quality of drinks you get. Thanks for the birthday treat!

Food was good... but at 22h on Sunday evening is unacceptable when your table for 2 persons is a small one on the wall where the one person has to view the wall in less than 1 m.... Especially when 4-5 tables for 2 persons in the main hall were empty during our whole dinning...We asked one of them and the maitre refused...
