You do feel at home in this small restaurant and the staff is very friendly. The food on the other hand was quite average (the chicken I ate was rather dry), but the plates are very full (a whole mountain of rice next to the fried potatoes). If you like vegetables with your meal, you should order them separarately.

Ok ok ok! I know my parents would be disappointed to know I came all the way over to Budapest to eat at the same restaurant three times but... it's so dang good! We ordered the goulash, chicken and dumplings and the sponge cake for dessert. Don't skip out on the dessert! Mom and Pop style restaurant with traditional Hungarian... More

Tried to visit here this evening based on reviews on trip advisor and thought the walk from our hotel would be worth it! Got to the restaurant just before 8.30pm to see a closed sign on the door - decided to try the door which was open so popped my head in to ask if they were indeed closed as... More

Cute little restaurant with a homey atmosphere. The menu is on a chalk board on the wall and whatever you choose it will be a hearty home cooked meal that your Hungarian Granny could have prepared. The prices were reasonable and the service very friendly. I can only recommend.

Yes I know it was a sunday night quite late on, 7.30ish and this seemed to be last chance saloon for food. Lady spoke quite good english and asked if we wanted a menu. Sat down menus in front of us. Ordered camembert cheese which came with rice and a jam like sauce. Fine. Then out came our Hungarian chicken... More

Typical Hungarian foods, usually well served. However the place itself has a bit of cooking oil smell, which is disturbing a bit. Also possibility to take away, which is good.

If you want to experience homestyle casual and absolutely delicious food, this is the place to go. All local patrons, no tourists so you know you've got the real deal. Was recommended to me by one of the proudest Hungarians in the world so again, you know this place will hit the spot. Everything we ordered was fantastic and in... More

Good start for long weekend in Budapest. Busy place during lunch time and not so many seats. Food comes quickly: gulasch was excellent and roasted pork had a ot of garlic. Prices are okay, atmosphere is very good.

Staying in District I / Buda

Neighbourhood Profile
District I / Buda
The historical center to a city with a multifarious and intricate past, Buda has some of the most outstanding buildings in Europe and an enviable natural landscape with stunning views onto the Danube. Centered around the Royal Palace, it provides a glimpse into the golden years of the Austro-Hungarian empire and the lives led by the aristocracy at the time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many events attended by the royal family and was the chosen place for the coronation of Franz Josef, one of the Hungarian Habsburg kings. Having admired the palace and the church, a visit to Buda will be unforgettable by the stunning and memorable panorama over Pest offered by the seven towered Fishermen’s Bastion.
