Me and my boyfriend went here two times. The first time we had spaghetti carbonara and lasagna. Both were delicious. Second time we had spaghetti and pizza. The pizza was okay but a little dry and not very tasty.. I regretted not taking the spaghetti or lasagna instead. The restaurant is very nice looking, and it's a nice atmosphere. I... More

We ate here on purpose first night and the food was nice, but it was a rip off. By far the most expensive meal we had in budapest and probably our least favourite. Paid around £60 for a main course and bottle of wine. My partners food arrived at least 5 minutes before mine which is a small thing but... More

Went there for a meal on our last night in Budapest and was pleasantly surprised. Both had grilled baby squid on a bed of garlic spinach, absolute heaven! Main course was Angus steak with grilled vegetables and roast potatoes with a sour cream dressing, all cooked to perfection. Service was very good although the wine list is quite expensive. Lots...

This place was really busy so decided to try it out. Food was good, staff were friendly. This was probably the most expensive meal that we had but that was probably due to the area it is in (one of the main streets). The goulash was lovely and the brownie I would recommend

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
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 and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
