Excellent meal. Wine was extremely tasty, all of the food was superb, especially the duck breast. Service was friendly and well paced. It is expensive for Budapest but you get your money's worth. Recommended.

Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
