The restaurant Karpatia was recommended to us by our friends because for having dinner we wanted to eat something typical Hungarian. As pre-dinner I´ve chosen a typical hungarian fish soup which satisfied my expectations totally, for the main course I chose a crispy grilled duck which tasted excellent too and for the last course I decided to eat sponge cake with chocolate sauce, out they forced me to stop eating at this point because of its heavy taste.
The wines, corresponded to all menu courses we had, were first -class wines from hungarian wineries. The only thing which made us mood< there was the furniture which must get renewed in future.

If surroundings are as important to you as the food, this might be the place for you. Grand interior and attentive professional service. Prices on the top side - one of our party had eaten better at half the price in a local side street café. Helpings were generous and food was fine. Perhaps the sort of place for a special occasion meal. Staff were tolerant of our large party wanting separate bills, but displayed the customary Hungarian lack of enthusiasm for supplying change in spite of a hefty 12.5% "tip" on the bill.

Traditional Hungarian dishes, good goulash. Very warm welcome, excellent service and very talented violin players. As usual they will try to sell you their music CD :-).
We have enjoyed the evening there.

Wonderful interior in the main room. The gipsy band made our evening a very special one. Food was delicious. Thank you for the authentic dishes.

This was one of the best meals we have ever had. The service is very professional and very pleasant, the building is simply marvellous (reminded me of Britain's House of Parliament) and the food was wonderful - just wonderful.

We ate from the autumn menu and had the best pheasant ever - and we live where pheasants are reared.

Really good, own label wine too.

To reiterate, one of the best meals we (elderly couple) have ever had. And we are very demanding.
