“RUSTIC, the view & air is fabulous!”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

We were just driving around Esztergom wondering how we could get to the top of the mountain for a view & with a bit of difficulty we got there. To our surprise they were all gussied up, inside & outside, preparing for a wedding within 2 hrs. but they cheerfully received us, sat us down & said we can order whatever we want, there is time left before the wedding crowd will arrive. We ordered 2 gigantic CREPES with different fillings and had a great lunch inside and drinks at a very reasonable price. However, while waiting, had a chance to look around the place and the views were absolutely stunning from a wooden terrace that was built right on the top edge of a cliff. You could see the town below, with the famous "Danube bend" and also see Slovakia on the far side of the huge, simmering, ancient river basking in the sunshine as sunrays managed to break through the thick clouds. It was about 3 PM and started to cool down with the wind picking up a bit, but the air was
gloriously clean and fresh, with the scent of flowers and a hint of the wilderness that surrounded it. After lunch we discovered that they also have LODGING here and a kind of a mini zoo in the back with parking. But the wedding guests started to arrive and we reluctantly departed. This place was the most pleasant surprise for us during our entire stay in Hungary. Highly recommend it for all, but especially those who would prefer to do a little hiking as well. There is plenty there to see.
