The policy seems to be quantity over quality. We had a burger and a schnitzel. Both somewhat overlooked, the schnitzel not unlike a dried shoe. Lots and lots of dry chips. Service and atmosphere good, perhaps we were unlucky .

There were some cool things about this place- I liked the decor, the menu had some appetizing choices and the elderflower 'lemonade' was tasty. My food was nice but oversalted. However the waiter was a bit rude- the sort of person who asks if everything...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
