Attracted by the postive reviews, we decided for Haxen on our last night in town, but we must say: we were disappointed, We had far better dinners at other places. This more than 100 years old place has a warm wooden interior, and reception was efficient. For starters we choose steak tartare Hungarian style (not well balanced, to much pickle). Our son had Hungarian Smorgasbord which is a kind of cold meat & cheese platter (the cured ham was the best part) and I had a pan with tomato-paprika sauce and sausage (quite nice, but you need a spoon to eat it like goulashsoup). It was a pity the waiter wasn't very knowledgable on the wine, and recommended an average rosé. For main courses our son had a huge goose-breast roulade in a game sauce, which did not look attractive at all, but taste was OK (see pictures), My wife had a tasty duck breast with a very nice saffron pasta. The mushroom sauce was served separately, which we appreciate, so we can dose the sauce ourselves. I had a grilled meat platter. This was a combination of a duck leg, goose breast, piece of pork, shaslick and a variety of patatoes. It was huge (like all portions), I ate maybe some 25%. The stuffed patatoe with sour cream and the duck leg was the best part. For wine we got recommended a very expensive Merlot Reserve and we have to say: it was the best of the meal. Never before we had a natural 15.5% red wine, and it was still well balanced. Coffees completed the dinner.
We asked also for ice water, and we got luke warm tap water for free. We had to ask for additional ice. As you understand, we found service rather average. The bill, which looks almost like an Exel-sheet added up to more than 33.000HUF, the most expensive dinner we had (due to the 6.800 HUF Merlot), far from the best. At best Gute Burgerliche Küche with very large portions, but not fine dining. We will no go again there.

Went here specifically for pig knuckle, but got more. The pig knuckle was good (not great), but the service, hospitality, and atmosphere of this place was excellent. We enjoyed the entire experience; especially, the staff.

Do not make the mistake to judge this restaurant by it's surroundings, once in, you will not be disappointed. The restaurant provided high quality in all parts. From the excellent violinist accompanying the meal, well trained staff, cozy interior and of course superb cooking. I had the stew of veal, which was cooked to perfection, and the recommended wine made the meal complete. Will be back next time we visit Budapest.
