Great place for dinner. The veal was very tender and spiced great and it was poured over dumplings. The chocolate soufflé was awesome too. Loved it so much went back again and had the garlic shrimp. Great but you may want to get a starter for that one not very filling.

This is a very popular restaurant in Veszprém and for a reason. It has about the nicest ambiance in town, with good food, reasonable prices and friendly staff. In summer, eating outside is excellent. In winter, the cosy atmosphere will put you at ease.

I have been here couple times and the experience is the same: this is a top-quality restaurant. Nice atmosphere, quality food and drinks, great and fast service. Their Chocolate Bomb is a must try. Though it is also a calorie bomb.

We started from goose liver and smoked trout. Continued with wild boar filet and pike filet. The dishes and service were just great. The waiter was professional, friendly and suggested wines, and he really knows where they were produced and what are the characteristics.

We went there because Villa Medici was closed to the public that day. It is in a historic settign in dowtown Veszprém, with a pleasant courtyard. The menu is varied, the dishes we tried were excellent. It is a bit pricier than the average restaurant in the countryside, but the quality is well above average, so this is definitely value...

The restaurant is in the center of the town, but in a small unattractive street so it is easy to miss, especially if you do not know it exists. The external appearance of the restaurant from the street is not such as to lure you inside, that might use a little work. But if you do enter, you are in... More

It was hard to find this restaurant, half-hidden below the castle. The food and drink was really delicious and well served. The waiter - although didn't know it by heart - even investigated what those decorative lilac beads could have been on my light summer nectarine cake: liofilized viola! All in all, I found the place a bit overpriced, yet... More
