The waiters were really attentive and it was a great experience to be there. We have tried their seasonal tasting menu. Some items were amazing, some seemed to be overthought. But still, it was amazing.

I went there only twice but I was satisfied with the food (most of all), the mood, the staff and the restaurant all in all. Some really exciting dishes, but also the Hungarian traditional ones with some creatvity and trick. Premium quality ingredients, moderate prices compared to the quality. Recommended to book the table in advance.

Duck is what they make so good, that I can't order other things. And they were so kind and made me sweet potato which was not on the menu. I loved the younger waitresses in high season. They were way better than the regular ones.

The reputation of this restaurant reaches all the way to Budapest and driving along the shore of Lake Balaton at midday seemed like a good excuse to stop. There was a herd of waiters awaiting customers at 12.00 pm sharp. The meals are traditional but arranged on the plates in a more modern and unique way. A big thumbs up!... More

Make sure you make a reservation as the place is usually full. We had a great time here. The staff is very nice and the garden is so peaceful. We had chicken and duck both was delicious. Also worth to taste the typical hungarian dessert called 'madartej'. The ginger and lime lemonade is also very tasty.

on a back-trip towards the capital we got hungry so decided to make a little detour and eat at this place, by recommendation. I suppose the owner/administrator, a very kind person greet us at the entrance which gave us a comfortable feeling since the beginning. Due to good weather we stay outside, under a huge umbrella. The place is furnished... More

Although I don't really understand what the big hype is about, I had a very good meal here. Environment is OK, waiters were kind and child-friendly. The quality is really good, with some unique and surprising meals. Although it is very famous, prices aren't in the sky, which is good point. Recommended.

I visited Kistücsök with quite high expectation and I do not regret... We found a balanced mixture of international and local flavours . The food were excellents, drinks were OK. The service was a little bit slow (generally), for example we had to wait 30 mins for soups.

I wasn't expecting too much cause Kistucsok is said to be the best restaurant on the country side. I'm always suspicious when sg is rated that high. They could exceed my expectations and I can assure you too: top quality meals you'll have!
