We only tried the goulash which is quite good. There's a musician playing violin as well but it's quite packed and get a bit noisy with people's conversation. Overall, it's a great place to take a rest and grab a bite between the tiring walking.

The restaurant is conveniently located for the market - being on the upper floor. The set up is straight-forward - self service. The food was reasonable quality and the prices were not too steep. We had a nice lunch.
