This is the kind of place my wife and I love to find! Not pretentious, but clean and comfortable ambience on a quiet lane in Budapest. There is outside seating; and inside, lots of dark wood, but lighting strong enough to see your meal. Friendly, attentive service. Good English with only a light accent. Great menu with some inventive dishes (pike perch with ginger sauce, for example) and several Hungarian standards (chicken paprikash was delicious). Everything was cooked perfectly. Nice wine list, too. The Hungarian version of Tira Misu was a standout for dessert!

They add 13% service charge, but it is prominently noted on the menu so you won't be surprised. Overall, it was a delightful evening!

A great find. Typical Hungarian food, excellent quality & fantastic value for what you get. Hubby had Pike perch filet in ginger sauce which was one of best, most interesting meal he has had in long time. I had chicken breast with parsley which is best chicken I have had in years. So good we returned our 2nd & last night & the pork tenderloin was best I have ever tasted. Staff were lovely.
Live music when we were there. 1st night panio man inside, 2nd night guitar man outside.
They have free wifi just ask for password
