Recommended to us as a fun place to eat with live music. The restaurant is in a residential part of the city on the Budapest side so we took a taxi ( took one from the street against my better judgement only to be charged double what it should've been). On arrival we were given a table, there was a... More

We are tired of going to the usual restaurants in Budapest and wanted something different for a change. We found this gem on TripAdvisor. It's a busy place. Phoning ahead for a reservation is highly advisable. A warm welcome by the staff and quickly seated. There were numerous large groups and the place was packed with empty tables quickly filling...

Who spoke to my toddler like a proper person and ensured that she was as happy as the rest of us. We went for a Birthday and they sang and played music, Excellent! I... More

We made 2 visits to this place recently, and while neither of our dinners was absolutely perfect, both were good. Service was friendly, if perhaps a bit slow at times. On our first night, we had steaks, which were relatively good. Our waiter recommended a bottle of really good Hungarian red wine. On the second night, one of us ordered... More

What a place. It may look ordinary from outside, but the interior's beatiful. Beef goulash was delicious, of the best I've had.

We were staying a hotel nearby and this was recommended by the staff. We didn't have a table booked but they fit us in. The atmosphere was relaxing and they had musician and singer and music wasn't too loud so you could still talk. The food was yummy but big portions I would recommend sharing as I eat a lot... More

We went there with a small group. The waiters were really nice, but I think they imagine that they are nobles according to their behavior. The food made me remind to the good old times when I was living in this country. I can recommend it

Hidden away in narrow streets of Obuda, this gem offers visitors and locals a glimpse of Budapest culture. The food is wholesome, plentiful and varied. Something for everyone who enjoys traditional fare. So much choice makes it difficult, as waiters pass carrying such variety, that only want to make you want more, but, of course, you've probably eaten all you... More
