Really enjoyed it here. Beef cheek stew was amazing and far exceeded the reasonable pricing too. Had the ginger lemonade, very good. The ambience is great as they manage to hold down a simple rustic feel. Always like places like this as it means they take pride in the food. Highly recommended.

We were positively surprised by this restaurant. There was a warm atmosphere and kind people serving you. We both took a diner with duck. My wife a duckbreast and I had the ducklegs with cashew, grapes and coleslaw. So, what have we enjoyed this meal with a good red wine. We forgot to take a picture of the nicely made dishes, so we made pictures of the deserts, a chocolate-cappuccino mousse and pineapple and melon marinated in port wine. Delicious!

We came across this Restaurant in Budapest in 2016. We loved the food. The staff were helpful and spoke excellent English. During our time there we went back several times and were never disappointed. Returned to Budapest 2017 and went back and the food and service were just as good. We tend to eat early and were able to walk in but it can get a busy later so book if you want to dine then.
