We visited this restaurant as it was the only place still open for an evening meal on a grey April Saturday (all the other wineries on the hill were closed or closing). The view is stunning and they really have a great setting at the top of the hill. The food we ordered was fine but average, and overpriced for... More

Really nice place with amaizing view. It is not an average pricey but you might be very satisfied with the food we really enjoyed. So all together, place and food, you might say it was worth it. Big question what is service fee included in the price if the waiter says it is not for them as it's not a... More

Nice Restaurant half way up the hill in Badacsony. A little pricey but really great food and friendly staff. And the view from the terrace really makes you want to sit and enjoy.

With such a nice location, I was expecting decent Hungarian food. The four of us ordered different items from the menu, but all of them were below average. Half raw french fries, tasteless meet which is impossible to chew, duck leg with soft skin. The waiters were also not in the mood, providing the bare minimum without enthusiasm. +Great view,...

This restaurant is way up in the hills overlooking Lake Balaton and there is the most amazing view. The atmosphere is good - there is live music from a small band - local authentic style - and the staff very welcoming. There is a huge choice - I opted for the grey cattle stew, a local speciality and it was... More

Location is great. Nice view on the lake and vineyards. staff is polite and very fast (sometimes too fast) Food is good, but I they give a a 'big' fishsoup with only a few peace of fishmeat and the price is above the average.

Thank Dávid B
Peter T, Manager at Kisfaludy-haz Etterem, responded to this review

Dear Dávid B, Thank you for reviewing us. There is a difference between halleves (fish soup) and halászlé (fisherman's soup). We have the latter and the way it is prepared makes it a thick soup made with a lot of fish but with no additional fish pieces. Looking forward to welcome you again! Kind Regards, Peter Torok More

Waiters are reasonably nice, the view is fantastic. Unfortunately tourism has died down in general resulting in many empty tables. Food was missing salt, waiters were joking about large portions not realising that people are less likely to get another course. Everything was bland, the fried bits a bit oily. Sadly not going back. Average for Hungarian standards, poor in... More

Amazing view, pro waiters, grear food, poor "choice" of customers.

We had lunch on the terasse. The weather was rather cool, but they provided blankets to each guest. We ordered 3 different soups only, two were ok, the seasonal pumpkin cream soup was tasteless.
