Delicious Hungarian plates. Great variety. The food is excellent. Has Live music also, but musicians perhaps were tired the night we have been there, so they didn’t performed as we expected. Restaurant is far from city center so you must use taxi if your location is there. It was a warm night so our dinner was in a beautiful garden... More

It's always a good sign when the restaurant is filled by local people, including the ex-prime minister of the country! Excellent quality local cuisine. We were a large group and everyone were happy with their choices. Best of all, the prices are very reasonable. Don't miss the bone marrow!

We had an amazing time at this restaurant at a late lunch. Our waiter Zoli was amazing. He recommended us the dishes and the wine and all was fabulous. Gave us advise where to go and even drew us a map of where the bus stop was. We really enjoyed the food, the atmosphere and the service, and the check... More

A Jewish restaurant with a Gypsy theme and Austrian music (I think I have the arrangement correct, apologises if not) – a very bizarre combination but an absolute gem of a restaurant, very popular, reasonably priced, great atmosphere, excellent staff and food, portions were generous to say the least, the Caesar salad starter alone was enough for a main meal!!!...

Friendly service in a beautiful restaurant with live music. The food is great, traditional Hungarian. The food is freshly made. As a Hungarian myself, I can only recommend this place. Order the "turogomboc" for desert, you have to wait a bit for it as it is freshly made but it totally worth it! The only down side I see is... More

Took a taxi and popped into this restaurant on the recommendation of a local - I am so glad I did as the food was amazing. I would never have found this in 100 years. A friendly and inviting atmosphere, some subtle love local music in the other room. Excellent menu in several languages and the staff were very helpful... More

This is in an out of the way area called Obuda, which was once it's own city. A nice area to wander in, in general. This restaurant had great reviews online so I checked it out. The service was great - it was no problem getting service in English, and they have English menus as well. All their wines are... More

This is an authentic Hungarian restaurant slightly hidden in Obuda. Tourists could get to it only with local friends who know their way and own a car. The food is nice. We had Szekelygulyas, a gulash with sauerkraut, veal paprikash and veal legs. They were all very good. The service is good even if the place is packed. The house... More
