I think this place survives based on location, location, location and unsuspecting tourists. As many others noted, the food was just ok at best and the service is not great. We opted for this place because all the others were full and this should have been our first clue. Now if you have read my other reviews, you will find... More

We went to this restaurant for lunch. It is situated in an area with many other restaurants full of tourists, and we picked the wrong one. First, they were rude (the waiters and the manager), we waited one hour for our plates while there was no that much clients.. All the staff was smoking outside, doing nothing while we were... More

We had lunch here on Wednesday 30th September 2015. We were served by a very pleasant young guy whose name I have forgotten but he wears specticles and has light brown hair.He was polite and attentive and a credit to his trade, so much so that we decided to return the following evening for an early dinner and you know...

I would not recommend this restaurant at Liszt Ferenc square which is full of better ones. We had a business dinner here. The service was slow, food was ok but we expected a lot better. The waiters were rude and expected a tip on top of the charged service fee. We had to wait 20 minutes for the invoice. Bad... More

Like many reviewers here, I was also disappointed after dining here for lunch. The only reason I ate here is our guide gave us a break in this street and told us to look for a restaurant to eat and that we have to be back to the bus in 40 min. I like Italian food that is why I... More

Booked a table at this restaurant, but when we arrived the staff didn't seem interested and were not prepared for our party. We arrived on time and they had already given our table away to another group of diners. So they made up another table and then we waited and waited to get served. In all it took us three... More

I have choosen this restaurant based on the menu as some of their dishes seemed to be naturally gluten free (mainly salads and some seafood). The starter I odered, mozarella caprese, was ok and nothing special. Than I ordered mussels in tomato sauce where I asked the waiters 4! times to check the exact ingredients for me, just to assure...

The service was great here- we loved the waitress as she coped with 8 English idiots very well. The coffee, pizza, beer and cocktails were great. Sorry we were so loud- definitely would visit again

Walking the streets of Budapest heading for the Opera House, our group of 4 were seeking 'a spot of lunch' and a drink. Stopped here and the staff were most helpful as we decided to pick and mix from a selection of starters. Further assistance was given with translation and pronunciation of key Hungarian words and the lunch became a... More
