Checked out the Andante Restaurant in Szolnok on a recent business trip. It is decent with good service and hot food. My "creamy" mushroom soup with dill meat balls was more watery and were than expected but nicely seasoned. No field mushrooms unfortunately. The dill meatballs - two small ones - were made of some meat, possibly chicken but it was hard to tell to be honest. They were a tad rubbery <insert rubber chicken joke here>. The main course of pork tenderloin stew in rosemary /olive sauce over "wavy potatoes" was served efficiently and piping hot. Wavy potatoes must be Hungarian for out of the box regular French fries. While some meat slices were overcooked, some were beautifully cooked. Served with a cold beer for 3000 HUF (about 11 Euros) it is reasonable value. Be aware they only take cash - I had to pay in Euros but the exchange rate was OK. Oh, and bring earplugs unless you like cheesy jazz music by former rockstars.

I showed up in Szolnok to explore where my father grew up and I don't speak a word of Hungarian.

My wife and I wandered into this place for some food after a long car ride and the owner was very pleasant and really went beyond to accommodate us.

I am celiac (allergic to Wheat) and have a little card in Hungarian that I showed him. He reviewed it with the cook and they came out with a simple 3 course meal for us. My wife had a traditional soup, chicken paprikash and a dessert crepe filled with raspberry Jelly. I had a simpler soup, plain fried chicken on rice and an apple. When he brought out the apple I laughed because that is a really great allergy friendly dessert.

Usually I just get to watch my wife enjoy dessert, so I appreciated that little touch.
