Stopped by for lunch, lovely pizza but ripped off when paying the bill. Classic we paid cash, waiter took it away , brought it back to declare it was short. When I challenged him he became very aggressive. Be warned

An absolutely awful meal with shocking service. Within 5 minutes of ordering, lunch was on the table. Mushroom risotto for me which had a film on the surface. The first time in my life it’s only taken less than 20 minutes to produce a risotto....More

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
