Called in here tonight and what a fantastic little place. Lovely cosy atmosphere but be aware you will have to book during busy times. Great food and excellent service. Service charge is included in the bill so no need to tip.

Located very conveniently on a main thoroughfare and part of the main building of the City Ring Hotel we visited this restaurant or 1st evening in Budapest. That made us pleased we had come to Budapest as the value for money was a pleasant surprise for so central a restaurant. Meal was great for the money. Service good. Menu choice... More
