You can find great local food here. Location is a bit further away. Reasonable price and pretty generous portions. Only issue is the service was a slightly subpar in my opinion. They have a tourist menu available which i think is quite reasonable. We were...not hungry when we visited so we opted for something else.More

We went to Paprika Jancsi our last evening in Budapest at the recommendation of our hotel. It did not disappoint. As the name implies, Paprika plays a central part in most of the dishes served.

Bold menu list with plenty of options. Big portions. Standard Hungarian cuisine. Not so many guests, interior is nothing impressive, but OK.

Wasnt blown away by this place but that was partly down to choosing the wrong dish. The mushroom soup was ok, a bit spicy and quite nice but sadly for them, I had eaten a far better mushroom soup the previous day. For main I...had fried chicken breasts stuffed with cottage cheese. They turned up with some herbs sprinkled on top - looked exactly like the picture on the menu (personally, I do not like menus with pictures). The chicken had been cooked perfectly moist and there was a super thin batter on the outside. It was bland for my tastes. Not their fault, I just ordered the wrong dish. The oven roasted veg were plentiful in variety and were delicious. The potatoes chip/wedge thingies were a disappointment, a bit par boiled and nowhere near crisped up. Agree with other reviewers the portions are very generous. A group of ladies dined to my side and all of their meals looked pretty good.More

I am an Asian girl and I visited this restaurant alone for lunch. Although the restaurant was almost empty, the waiter gave me a dark small corner seat on the second floor(and there was just a couple in the center and the other seats were...all empty). I could barely see the food so that I asked them to bring a lamp at least. Finally they gave me a small candle. Food was very normal but pricey comparing with average local restaurants. I also asked to recommend a glass of wine. The waiter said they will bring me the best one(I. e. the most expensive), the taste was really bad - I seriously doubt if they gave me the one I ordered.More

The most perfect restaurant to eat traditional goulash soup and everything else! Also the most beautiful decoration! And the best staff 🥰🥰

We wanted to try Hungarian cuisine and ended up here. The food was absolutely tasteless but maybe it’s the Hungarian style or just this restaurant doesn’t know that salt and pepper exists!

The restaurant was recommended by the 4* hotel The Three Corners Lifestyle. It was a great place to eat and spend some time with the family! Food was good, some even great ( e.g. GULYÁSLEVES BOGRÁCSBAN HÁZI CSIPETKÉVEL, SZEZÁMMAGOS PULYKAMELL RÁZOTT KERTI SALÁTÁVAL, JOGHURTMÁRTÁSSAL, BURGONYATALLRRAL,...ROPOGÓS KACSACOMB PÁROLT LILAKÁPOSZTÁVAL, HAGYMÁS TÖRT BURGONYÁVAL). They also serve smaller portions for children, even if you do not see this in the menu. What is nice: they offer a menu with pictures, and the best thing is that the food you receive really looks like the one there!!! As a negative point, I would say that on Mon the team was different, and we were able to easily notice the difference.More
