Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A lovely meal although service could have been better. It was quite dismissive service in most places we visited over this weekend trip and it was a little different to what we are used to. Nevertheless the food was lovely, lots of variety and tasted...full of flavour. This place seemed busy on a Friday night and reservations are needed to get in but it has a very authentic feel and a lovely ambience.More

Great atmosphere and good food. Staff are friendly. I think the live music was also very cool. Maybe I was expecting the good to be more than good since Jewish cuisine seems to be amazing in Budapest.

Really nice tough. got 2 main and 5 small tapas between 3 and was perfect. Recommend the slow...braised brisket, cauliflower and whipped feta. But everything was really tasty and would defo recommend and go back again.More

BE CAREFUL - It's atmospheric and the cocktails tasted good, but I was scammed here for almost €900. The waiter didn't accept Mastercard, only credit card. This is the only place I used my credit card in Budapest. In the days that followed, multiple transactions...were made without my knowledge. I luckily got this money back through my bank, but it caused a lot of stress. I had been robbed. Terrible. I contacted the restaurant, but after one response I didn't get an answer anymore. I shared all the details. The table we were sitting at, described the waiter, showed the transactions. I wanted them to speak to the waiter and prevent others from becoming victims. Bizarre that I haven't heard anything from them anymore. So don't go here, or at least be careful with paying.More

We went as a family of 6 adults and 4 kids after seeing the glowing reviews. When we got there, there was a queue and we almost turned back as we didn't think they would have a table for such a large group. But surprisingly...they were able to fit us quite quickly in an almost private dining area which was perfect. The food was amazing and the service was exceptional with very little wait times between courses, and everyone who interacted with us was cheerful and friendly. Feri, our server, was brilliant and made it a point to strike up a conversation with our 1 year old toddler every time he came to the table! Would definitely recommend it if you are looking for a family friendly Mediterranean restaurant with great food, ambience, and service. The only caveat is that it's slightly on the expensive side but feel it's definitely worth it for the food quality and good vibes.More

We took a chance and stood in the short queue outside at around 7pm. We didn't wait long and I am glad we did. I loved the interior. The staff were super friendly and efficient. We really liked the food which certainly exceeded our expectations....Also good value. The music was great too without being too loud. I cannot really understand any of the negative reviews byt perhaps it is a matter of taste. We would certainly go back again.More

Great insta spot. Good service, live entertainment was great. But the veg food is very average. So can come for the vibe not so much the food.

Visited at lunchtime and managed to get a table without booking, I can imagine this is not the case in the evening as the restaurant was staring to get busier later in the afternoon. The setting is beautiful and the service and food were excellent....We had the chicken shawarma and beef kebab plates, portion sizes were large and good value for money. Really nice atmosphere, would definitely recommend.More

My mum and I came to Mazal Tov whilst on holiday back in January and I still think about it months later. The staff were brilliant & the atmosphere was off the charts. We went on a Sunday night just before the dinner rush (5pm...ish) & had a brilliant evening, great food, a saxophonist, delicious drinks (I recommend Tubi if you like herbal drinks like elderflower). Special shout-out to our waitress, Dori, who was absolutely brilliant. Such a sweetheart.More
