This restaurant is close to the night life area of budapest but is not "just for tourists". We ate a delicious foie gras with tokaj jelly, fried duck liver, brased pork tenderloin and a very good dessert. Good service and moderate prices!

Excellent service in an unexpectedly pleasant location. Another excellent Goulash soup and the chicken cooked in bread, stuffed with ham and local cheese was deliciously moist.

Do you know what Vakvarjú is? If you have ever tried a finely crisped bread dough with a lacy brim directly served from the oven, you must have tasted "vakvarjú”, the original fried bread dough of Hungary . This is the name of the simple, but even more delicious traditional dish of Hungary, of which you could try many variations in our restaurant. If you prefer other specialties, you are also warmly welcomed. You can choose any of our delicacies from the menu. Would you like to taste homemade dishes? Our cooks are just preparing appetizing savories in the kitchen. Believe us, all are worth trying!
