My kind of place, very small, quiet, kind of like visiting your Hungarian grandmother’s house. Service was attentive. The food was simple local small dishes. They have small versions so you can try different things. I had goulash of course. The flavor was more rich and savory than the lighter somewhat bland one I had across the street. Then I tried chicken goulash, more simple comfort food. And cheap. My two dishes, one beer, and two large Palinka (of course) cost around $20. Think easy quick cheap eats, satisfying local home cooking. A nice change, everything else here seems expensive.

The restaurant comes with excellent recommandation for homemade traditional hungarian food. We got goulash soup (normal size) for almost 1700 HUF when you can get the same quality (even better) for around 1100HUF. The soup was very avarage. I guess the environment feels like family run bussiness and service was fine. I just think it was overprized.

While we were looking for a traditional goulash soup place, among the streets of the city centre, we stopped by this little family management restaurant. We ordered the soup and other 2 traditional dishes with Hungarian pasta (1 was gnocchi) and they were really good, specially the soup and the gnocchi with mushroom sauce! Omg! We will surely come back here! We definitely recommend this place! P.s. price was good as well!

We were living close by and so gave this a try. A small family run business with a good selection of traditional dishes. Was very tasty and can highly recommend. I dont give praise easily so this is definitely one to try.

Great authentic Hungarian food, but unfortunately the service was so off putting. There were two waitresses - one with black hair and the other slightly plumper and with dyed blonde hair. No issues with the former as she was pleasant, but the blonde waitress was extremely rude.

We were a party of 4, and there were either the bar seats or two separate tables of 2 left. We wanted to share a few dishes so we asked if we could all squeeze around a table for 2, and the waitress said no and asked “are you sitting or not?” when some new customers walked in. Strike 2, was when we asked the couple next to us if they were able to move one seat down so we could have a table of 4 (they had only just ordered their food), and they very kindly obliged (thank you!) the blonde waitress looked at us and said “that was not very nice of you, yeah?” and she continued glaring at us over the counter for the remainder of our meal.

I understand that the restaurant is small and cannot accommodate everyone, but this waitress in particular showed that she didn’t care about the customers and we didn’t feel welcome at all. Would recommend this place solely for the food, but not at all for the service.
