The restaurant is located just 100 m from the busy tourist street but it's very different to most of the restaurants in Vaci Utca. The Spirit has a cosy atmosphere with live music in the rustic brick interior. The service is perfect, friendly, helpful and always there without beeing to much.
The food however is nothing special, but it's notering wrong with it either.

We arrived here early and I must say the staff were incredibly helpful by recommending wines to go with the dishes that we ordered. Both my husband and I ordered a steak, I ordered a small steak but my husband (eyes to big for the belly) ordered the large steak and struggled to finish it but it was just cooked to perfection.

I wouldn't say it was a cheap restaurant but then you get what you pay for.

There was a good selection of food on the menu and if we are ever back in Budapest this restaurant will be the top of my list as alot of the restaurants that we visited were not very good.

First, you must distinguish "menu" and "a la carte" in this restaurant. "Menu" is a 3-dish dinner with a drink. "A la carte" is what you can chose from menu. So if you ask for a menu you will not get the menu, but will be served with pre-defined food selection instead. Second, service is terribly slow, even though they add 12% as service charge to your bill. Salads didn't include all the ingredients listed in the menu. Surprisingly salmon was a white fish, even though that was the only fish in the menu. They didn't have all the alcohol drinks mentioned in the menu. Other reviwes say this place has a wide wine selection, but we have not seen a wine list besides a short one in the menu, which had no wines at all. Staff speak bad English and don't understand your requests well. They didn't accept Visa and MasterCard, though on a door there were signs they should. On a good side, we were offered free desert and 15% discount as an excuse for them being slow. That was the only good thing during our visit.

The enviroment was great, good music, careful decoration. We hate the goulash that was fabulous, the Angus steak was good, but dindt apreciated the sauce, and the salmon was exquisite. The wine also very good.
I liked the place, the people very nice and helpful, but....the service too slow...we waited 30 minutes between the goulash and the main dishes.

We had the best food of our stay in Buddapest here, the atmosphere is lovely - really warm, friendly and cosy, and the wine list was great. The staff were really friendly (not something we experienced everywhere here!)

We tried the chocolate soufflé based on other trip advisor reviews and it was delicious.
The only downside was there was only one vegetarian main choice on the menu, it was really tasty (pasta and vegetables) but if you are looking for more veggie choices you might want to go elsewhere.
