Apparently the card machine was "broken" so we were forced to pay by cash and because we didn't have fiorines we paid with euro and they charged us 7 € more. It was expensive with no reason. I really don't recommend it!

Their goulash soup is very good. Ask for bread (it’s extra). The bread is chewy and soft and a delicious way to soak up some of the liquids. I️ would have given five stars except for the annoying House dog who barks frequently.

Loved this restaurant, although the service was a little slow. The food was beautifully presented and tasty. We also had cocktails which were good too. The staff were all pleasant and the décor is lovely.

Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of

more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
