I found the food to be good, the service great and the atmosphere was nice as well. Prices were ok for Budapest.

“It's OK, but better options around”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

Maybe it's because there are too many options on the menu (Italian, Hungarian, etc.) but the food is just OK. We had the mixed salad and a couple pizzas. Salad was good and very fresh. Pizzas weren't. Good service but English is pretty limited. Prices are pretty good - 11,000 forints for dinner for two, including a bottle of wine.

“I love it.”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

I love this place, because it's cosy, lights are perfect, staff is very kind and prices are reasonable. But first of alI I have to say that I found here a dish which is my favourite now! I have to have it again and again every time I can! Super delicious "mediterrán mártogatós" Wow!!! It's among the starters. Medium size prawns, nice black mussels in a sauce with garlic, some lemon, chili, I don't even know what else, but it's so good!!!
I could eat that every day...
I love the taste so much! It's very hard to find in Hungary sea-food dishes that are really good. Well, this is one!!! Also my opinion is that the wine selection is very good, bottles are at a more reasonable price than in other restaurants in nearby...

“Excellent value for money restaurant”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

I have eaten at this restaurant several times both on my previous and recent trips to Budapest. It is located opposite the St Stephens Basilica.
They have a very good and quite wide range of Italian/Hungarian dishes on the menu. The quality and quantity of the food is excellent and good quality local wines are available by the glass or bottle at reasonable prices. The waiters are very attentive and friendly but limited in their knowledge of English although this was never a problem. Highly recommended.
