Went there after reading some of the comments in TripAdvisor. A nice experience, but hardly the 7th top restaurant in Budapest. The owners must have a lot of friends writing the reviews. Food average, at best, with matching prices. Service was very pleasant and friendly, atmosphere enhanced by a cimbalom player providing background music. Yes, a nice place, about average, but now grossly overrated. Reservations are required, but most of the raving reviews are totally unmerited.

Dear Sir,
First of all let me thank you for your comment. The food what we are serving is absolutely simply, home style food. The ambience either. Simply, cozy, just like at home. Most of our Guests is very happy with this! The rewiers are NOT our friends, so please do not offend us! Tripadvisor is a very serious site, with a very serious organization on behalf.
Kind Regards,
Susan

Great food, great staff, great prices. We had soup (I had the bean and smoke sausage) and added chilli paste and fresh chilli and dried chilli which is put on the table as condiments and it was brilliant. Two of us shared the roast pork knuckle - make sure you have big appetites as this could easily feed three, one handful and another had the pork tenderloin. Every dish was cooked well and tasted different. I cannot understand the review that said it was flavourless! Only one of us had room for Apple pie. Along with a bottle of red wine and a couple of glasses of rose and a small bottle of champagne, the bill was only 21000ft (about 63 quid) for all of us! Amazing value. Definitely worth a visit but make sure you book! The only negative was the music but it's not too loud that you cannot ignore it!

We visited on a Saturday night without a booking and they were able to fit us in.

The service was incredibly friendly, without being intrusive. There was a good choice of food. We shared the pork knuckle between two, but there was more than enough for three. We also ordered crispy duck leg and pork, which were also tasty. There was also complementary bread and a shot at the end of the meal.

The food was delicious, full of flavour and gave a traditional taste of Hungary. The best part was the bill, 4 main courses and two bottles of wine was 21000 HUF.

Would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

Thank Tracy S

Food is cheap but is only average standard. The ham and sausage plate was of poor quality. The pork knuckle lack any taste. It was like pork simply cooked in an oven. Service was only average. The atmosphere is like a fast food restaurant.

After researching where to eat on our last night in Budapest, we came across this absolutely amazing place.
Most 'traditional' restaurants are tacky and cater for tacky tourist taste, but this is different.
Cute and tidy, you feel like you are welcomed into the home of a good friend. Service is super friendly, quick and efficient.
The food, though 'home style' is well presented and ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!
The pork knuckle for two is a MUST! The stuffed cabbage is so good!
This meal will be on my mind for a very long time.
Book without hesitation!
Email bookings are answered faster than you can imagine.
FANTASTIC.
