My first visit to Hungary and ghoulash had to be done. This restaurant was recommended by our taxi driver on the busy Raday street which has lots of restaurants. It was a relaxed, traditional restaurant with good service. The foie gras starter was excellent and my main course of ghoulash and potato gnocchi was also good, although a bit heavy... More

We had 2 excellent meals here, despite being in a street renowned for its tourist traps. Interesting food, basically magyar but with a modern twist. Ambiance, cosy. Service, attentive.

We stayed very close by from this restaurant and this was the first place where we went to eat. The food was okey. The food was a bit plain. Staff was nice enough to help us move to a big table on the terrace from inside. The place wasnt bad, but was expecting more. :)

There is a great vibe and people are friendly. We ate there twice. Whilst the first visit was fab for both food and service - the second visit our service was... More

Friendly staff, good food & nice atmosphere. Don't expect anything too fancy, extraordinary or special. Nice place-good food! (If you like deserts, the chocolate souffle is a reliable choice!)
