“Terrible service”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

This happens a lot with popular places, after some months/years of great succes, the staff starts to forgot what restaurants are about. to provide people with a great time. i reserved a table for.my girlfriends birthday as a surprise, specifically not next to the door. As we were sick for a week. When we arrived the table was next to the door. They couldnt resolve the situation they wouldnt move some tables, which was easily possible.
Afterwards they let us wait in fain, without any excuses or sg.very incompentent staff not the right people for hospitality.

“poor service”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

The food is very good, that's for sure (Based on past experience). But it is completely unacceptable that the staff makes you feel like a broke student who is begging for a table...
We reserved a table EXPLICITELY asking for one NOT next to the door...Guess what, they gave us the table right next to the door. After waiting 20 min for another one, they have not excused themself even a littlebit or whatever to make us feel less uncomfortable...after 20 minutes still not communicating to us whatsoever we walked out. I'm wondering what makes so difficult for some people act normal and handle a very common situation better?!

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

Great restaurant, with great food selection and very good service. We had a dinner and few drinks during the week, make sure you have a reservation becase it was very crowded even in the week. The tapas are excellent, If you are around don't miss it

“tapas in the center”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

a very neat tapas place. you don't get a lot of those in Budapest. If you can't live without tapas, check it out, but hey, as long as you're here, you should rather eat something Hungarian...
