Dishes are refined and the... More

We passed this place earlier this morning and it looked interesting. What a great choice we made this evening. The staff were absolutely brilliant. The little dog in the doorway is amazingly cute. We ordered mozzarella/basil/tomato salad to start, which is generally a safe bet, and it was great. I ordered salmon with pesto on a bed of grilled vegetables;... More

Flavours were awesome and from there the standard had been set. Had the meat platter, pork cutlet and the gulash. AMAZING. Going back.... More

The spacious interior with modern grey mosaic tiles might make you wonder if you are in a spa and people wearing bathrobes might walk by any moment. The food was tasty and nicely presented; the Serrano platters - both with and without cheese - were great (the place is not called HamFaces for no reason), and friends were happy with... More

Thank you for the great service and the perfect dinner courses. If you eat here you cannot go wrong with any choice. If you have room for dessert as well, you must try the creme brulee.. exceptional. Recommended not only for eating ham. :)

As a few other reviews mention, service isn't particularly important here. I suspect this is because service is included in the bill. The food was nice and arrived pretty quickly but I thought it was on the expensive side. I don't mind paying a bit extra if the food and experience reflect it but I didn't feel that was the... More

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
District V / Inner City
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 architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for 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 and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
