This restaurant was recommended by some of our friends, and we thought we would give it a try. The online menu also looked reasonable enough.
The restaurant is placed in an abandoned pool area adjacent to the famous Gellert bath, which sounds like a fun idea, However, to be quite honest, it looks like they just removed the water, but kept everything else untouched. Rough and broken tiles, simple garden chairs and benches, some torn sunshades jammed in between two open doored toilet buildings (come on, seriously?) and a bar. Rather untidy and uninwiting.
Every guest seemed to be constantly chain-smoking, so the whole area was doused in a strong odour of cigarette smoke. We almost stepped back in disgust, but then we thought we would give it a try and sat down.
It was initially not clear who the members of the staff was, since they were dressed in just casual jeans shorts and old t-shirts. Our waitress took our orders, which was the chicken, hamburgers and the salad.
The food soon arrived, but the chicken dish was cold, chewy and obviously not prepared on site. It gave the impression that it had been prepared the day before and just warmed a few minutes in a micro before serving. The burger was not particularly appetizing either, and the salad was weird with key ingredients simply missing. We asked if we could get some bread, but we were informed that it is only available for breakfast,
For drinks we ordered beer, wine and sparkling water. The waitress forgot the water several times although we kept reminding her. Finally she came with still water in a large regular large drinking glass, not a jug.
We ordered the chocolate cake dessert, which looked good, but tasted a bit stale. It might be because throughout the whole evening people around us were constantly smoking like chimneys and after a while everything smelled like ashtrays.
When we were finished, we asked for the bill, but it took a couple of complaints until it turned out correct, without any odd additions for things that we had not ordered or received. After paying, the waitress came back and asked if she should bring the bill as they were going to close soon... Jeez.
To be quite frank, this was a rather sad experince, and this restaurant is definitely not a place that we will ever visit again.
