The restaurant is in the heart of Budapest and placed in a calm street with tables outside, too. The service is fast and efficient, and always ready to refill your wine. The menu has a nice choice of Hungarian cousin, but not only. Recommended.

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
