It is easy to fall in love with this small pretty restaurant. Menu is typical local incl winelist, and the dishes we had were very good. Service with a big smile. Book a table in advance or hope to get lucky.

Description
Családias éttermünk a múlt század közepének ódon hangulatát idézi. Üzletünk a belváros szívében, a Duna-parttól egy sarokra, az V. kerületben, a Sörház és Molnár utca sarkán, a Váci utca tőszomszédságában található. Éttermünk kizárólag vacsoraidőben tart nyitva, keddtől szombatig, 18:00-tól 23:00 óráig. Minden hétfőn és vasárnap zárva vagyunk. Borlapunkon a magyar borászok remekműveinek adunk otthont, így csakis hazai pincészetek borait kínáljuk Önöknek. Konyhánkban tradícionális magyar ételeket készítünk, és szezonálisan változtatjuk az étlapkínálatunkat. A hagyományos magyaros konyha nem alkalmas vegán és vegetáriánus, valamint glutén- és laktózérzékenyek részére. Éttermünkben nincs lehetőség gyerekszobát kialakítani (babyroom), és nem rendelkezik etetőszékkel, így nem alkalmas kisgyermekes családok részére. Családos vendégeinket kizárólag a gyermek 7 éves korától tudjuk fogadni. Megértésüket köszönjük! Reméljük, hamarosan vendégeink körében üdvözölhetjük Önt és barátait egyaránt!
