“Overcharged and misled by waiter. We were ripped off.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014 via mobile

We went here as recommended by our hotel Three Corners, Bristol. The first two courses were fine, then the waiter persuaded us to have melon for desert, we were full but he was very persuasive. He then suggested a desert wine, yet again very persuasive. We all agreed. We were disappointed with the melon it was half a melon filled with melon balls and strawberries and a scoop of ice cream. We paid the bill and left. When we looked at the bill at our hotel we realised we had paid £9 /3000 huf each for the melon and £7/ 2300huf each for the desert wine. We thought the melon charge was an error as the.main courses were not this expensive. We asked our hotel to call them as they had recommended the restaurant, they did call and it wasn't an error. We felt totally ripped off. I am aware we should have checked the prices but we never imagined the prices being so high. The restaurant did say to the hotel if we wanted to go back for another meal they would knock 10,000huf off our bill...not likely...beware tourists they rip you off!

“My favourite meal in Budapest!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014

We arrived in Budapest and used the trip advisor app to find something close by and was lucky to stumble upon this place! It is a little off the beaten track (in district VIII) so it felt more authentic. Excellent service, and there was a musician entertaining the crowd. It is a little more pricey than the rest of Budapest, but worth it. Highly recommended!

“You must eat here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

Very authentic and very very good food. The menu was a little confusing as it was both in Hungarian and English, but that really just added to the fun of the evening
