“Don't expect frills, do expect wonderful food at a great price!”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

One street back from the Danube, north of the Margit Hid (Bridge), you'll find this great traditional restaurant. Staff are friendly (as many reviewers have said), but not intrusive. Wine is served informally - red or white, good quality, local made, by the glass or carafe. I recommend a glass of their Tokaji (5 Putt) with your dessert. The menu is amazingly varied with dozens of mains to choose from.

I enjoyed goose soup, very tender and tasty venison in red wine sauce with cranberry stuffed baked apple and homemade croquets, apple fritters, 2 glasses of wine and a glass of Tokaji - 10,000 HUF (33€)! Compared with 13,500 for a smaller scale, but not close in quality or atmosphere, meal at the Hilton where I stayed - no contest.

“very nice experience”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

We ate at this place twice. Both times everyone in my party enjoyed their meals and the service. The menu had english translations and the waiters could understand enough to make the dinner pleasant. They we kind enough to provide take out service for some soup when one of our party was back at the apartment under the weather. I think we had dinner adn then lunch here. the other customer ranged from dates, foreign tourists, busniess lunch partners. We ate indoors since it was early March. For the quality of food, service and atmosphere i think the prices were fair and reasonable. Unfortunately I am not a small eater and i found the portions fair :) the other guests found them a bit large. It is exactly the type of place you want to eat at after traveling to Budapest on vacation.

“very good address”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

We enjoyed our dinner in this restaurant where the welcom and the atmosphere were very pleasant,and the food delicious, with excellent wine. We were so enthusiastic we came back a second time during our stay. The restaurant is quiet, close to the Marguerite bridge in the Pest area. Good address with sophisticated meals (fat liver).
