“Excellent food, crowded place”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

The food was excellent- Reservations are needed at any time! The place is packed and some tables are not very well placed. Service is nice but not overly ambitioned. I would recommend this for a casual dinner, but not for the last night in town!

“Plastic Laminated Menu, Paper Napkin”
Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

In the US, this would be your 14th best "tap room" in the small city you are visiting. I would not call it a restaurant; rather it is more like a bar that serves "grub." If this merits any "stars", then Guide Michelin would give three to Chili's.

“Excellent Hungarian Dishes”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

We knew about this restaurant because it was indicated by the owner of the B&B we were staying as one of the best places in Budapest to get local food. It was the place he and his family use to go when they are in the mood for Hungarian dishes. Of course, with this indication we went there with quite high expectations. And we didn't dissapoint ourselves. At all. I had a duck prepared in the traditional local way and it was extremely tasty and not dry at all (my biggest fear when I order duck). My wife asked for something more, let's say, international. She had then a chicken which she told me was very good indeed. You will find both kind of food there: traditional local ones and a more common international one. Chose what you like best. I guarantee you will have a great experience whatever choice you make.

“Best vegetarian Hungarian food in Budapest!”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

Located at the heart of Budapest (Pest), this restaurant was a wonderful find. It serves great Hungarian food and has very few vegetarian options but they are mind blowing (probably the best in Budapest). For example, I had the traditional cold cherry soup and mix-fruit soup at a lot of restaurants in Budapest but the mix-fruit soup at Cafe Kor was the best. Some dishes including a few rice & noodle preparations can be made without meat on request and are equally amazing. Although we were lucky to get a table without reserving one, the Cafe gets crowded very soon as it is popular among tourists as well as locals. Therefore, we would recommend that you reserve the table in advance.Great Hungarian food and service, this is definitely one of the best restaurants in town!

“Good food with great value”
Reviewed December 25, 2013

I must say the waitresses are pretty and the waiters are good looking!

They have special menu daily. And they are all delicious. My favourite is the duck meat which is not dry at all. For Asian travellers, this restaurant service rice too! The Reindeer meat is a must try too!

The restaurant is small and full of customers. Do come early as you may need to wait for at least 30mins. Just walk further down the St Stephen Basilica for a great meal with good money value!

We tried another restaurant, the food was bad and it was very expensive.
