Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We are Americans staying nearby. The waiter made no effort to try and understand us, rolled his eyes and made faces at our attempts to order. He acted rude and disgusted. The food was terrible and pricey. When leaving we noticed his coworker spoke English.

Traditional and good quality Hungarian food. The duck was rich and tasty. Medium good service or less. My partner ordered a starter with mozzarella but when she got it it didn’t contain mozzarella. When we asked the waiter just said “sorry we’re out of mozzarella...today” very strange. No discountMore

The Service was excellent, we ordered main dishes and can fully recommend the beef and the pork knuckle. The desserts were amazing, can fully recommend you to try any of the available ones.

We saw the great reviews and had very high hopes for our dinner at Ruben. It fell a bit short of our expectations. We didn't receive the great welcome others mentioned. The waiter pointed at a table which was next to a table of 8...and was clearly going to be noisy. I asked if there was a quieter spot (we knew there were more tables upstairs and the restaurant wasn't full) but he said no and pointed to the table again. We ordered starters, main courses and a bottle of wine, all of which was nice enough and the portions were quite large - too big if anything. The camembert starter could easily have been a main course. We felt like we were being rushed through the meal as there was little time between the courses. If we hadn't stayed to finish our wine, we'd have been in and out in 30 minutes. We were right, the table next to us were noisy, so not the relaxing evening we were looking for.More

This restaurant was just around the corner from our hotel. Busy on a Tuesday night was a good sign. Food was gorgeous, the best risotto I have ever had, hands down. Lovely service, great Hungarian wine option. Totally recommend.

Not a lot to say: there is a reason why Ruben has excellent reviews. I've been there for dinner and the food was excellent! I'm not an expert of Hungarian cuisine but the dishes that I had the chance to try were, in my opinion,...amazing! Definetely reccomended. Despite the food and the quality/price ratio (both excellent) what impressed me the most were location and, most of all, the staff. Location really nice, staff extremely competent, kind and ready to help you (the real added value of the restaurant): they constantly took care of us and rarely I saw such a good service!More

The food was very nice, but portions were a bit samalla if you are very hungry. We only ate the main course, so if you take the appertizers and dessert, then I think it's quite enough. The restaurant itself is beautiful and the service was...very good.More
