Description: Do you know what Vakvarjú is? If you have ever tried a finely crisped bread dough with a lacy brim directly served from the oven, you must have tasted "vakvarjú”, the original fried bread dough of Hungary . This is the name of the simple, but even more delicious traditional dish of Hungary, of which you could try many variations in our restaurant. If you prefer other specialties, you are also warmly welcomed. You can choose any of our delicacies from the menu. Would you like to taste homemade dishes? Our cooks are just preparing appetizing savories in the kitchen. Believe us, all are worth trying!

“Great atmosphere, good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Great food (both Hungarian and international dishes), great atmosphere. Recommended for business or private occasions as well. The restaurant also has a small designated playground area for little kids.

“Highly recommendable restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

My wife had the salmon in white wine and spinach butter sauce, my brother the forest mushroom cappuccino and the beef steak „Kedvessy“ style, and myself the squealer knuckle – all cooked to perfection and reasonably priced. The place itself was pleasantly decorated with spaceous seatings and situated in a vibrant zone of the city.

“Relaxing place to dine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

No real complaints about this restaurant. Food was decent, service was friendly, and the prices were fair. We had a booth and enjoyed being able to just relax and enjoy ourselves without needing to feel rushed.

It is definitely set-up to be child friendly, but we (30, 30, 25 year olds) did not feel out of place at all.

“Lovely”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013

Had a lovely meal here, recommended by the local staff at our apartment. Stylish, good atmosphere and traditional dishes highlighted on the menu. The waiters were helpful and helped guide us around the menu. We would heartily recommend it!
