We really enjoyed our lunch here while visiting our daughter studying abroad in Budapest. Food was excellent, and service was very attentive and welcoming.

Very good atmosphere in a relaxing restaurant cafe. Good food quality at reasonable price. Probably tomatoes are not so indicate with pappardelle and mushroom but my son appreciated them

I had the fois gras to start followed by the pork knuckle. The food was absolutely exquisite, the service polite and the atmosphere very relaxed. Couldn't recommend this highly enough. The food cost a total of about 35000Huf (£100) for 5 people including drinks and service charge

Expected something special. For a lot of money, had average to poor food. Goulash was only average. Chef's special, crab ravioli, was so salty as to be inedible. Nobody cared. Would never go back. Sorry we went.

The food was very tasty, I ordered some duck leg and it was delicious. I really liked the ambient too.

We came here Monday March 13th and were the last table before closing. All three of us had Halaszle (Fish soup) and bread. It was very tasty and delicious. When we come back to Budapest, we'll be back. Koszonunk (We thank you) Frank

After seeing the eclectic menu on-line, I wanted to try this quiet restaurant out for myself. The somber waitstaff is attentive and the cuisine is highly creative, beautifully plated and surprises you with a myriad of flavors in every bite. A true highlight of our visit to Budapest.

Stumbled across this restaurant and wasn't sure what to expect. Ended up having one of the best meals of our trip! Slightly more expensive than some other places in Budapest, but totally worth it. We took recommendations from the waiter and had a delicious beef goulash and pork dish from the "traditional hungarian dish section" with a chocolate souffle, all... More
