“The Pearl in Arkad Shopping Center”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

...yes, you heard it, this small restaurant is in a shopping center, we were hungry and instead of going to the food court, which resembles a herd of animals feeding, we chose this restaurant and wow were we surprised!

Absolutely spectacular food, great portions and reasonably prices, the service is right on the money.

If you find yourself in Arkad shopping center, it is a must visit!

“Tasty, friendly and atmospheric.”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

We found this ploace after a long cold walk.. The staff were very friendly and the restaurant was cozy and warm. We sat upstairs and although the place is small it was not cramped at all. (there was 4 of us)

We had a pizza to share, soup and pasta, all of which were good size portions and extremely tasty. The staff were attentive and even taught us some Hungarian!

Reasonably priced and well worth a vist.

“Good food for a healthy apetite”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

Six of us on a short break called in for dinner from the nearby Marmara Hotel where we were staying. The menu was extensive, the food really good and at a good price. Service was quick and friendly and the place was packed. The mood lighting was ok but I found some difficulty reading the menu. (Eyesight problem now that I'm getting on a bit!)
One slightly bizarre experience of note relates to one of our party being asked when she ordered a Tiramisu desert whether she would mind the take-out version as they were out of the standard offering. It arrived in a plastic container complete with sealed clear plastic top. When we joked with the waitress about this she explained that to take it out of the packet would have spoiled the presentation! It tasted delightful - the take-out version was big enough for us all to have a sample!

“Great Restaurant”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

Really good Italian food. The owner is Italian and was there and came and spoke to us. The staff gave us a complimentary drink as we had to wait a few minutes for a table - turned out to be about a 3 minute wait. Food was fantastic, really nice atmosphere, buzzing. Would definitely eat here again.
