Takes forever to get bad food which isn't worth half what you pay for it. Waiter offered some potatoes while we waited, and of course they never came either.

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

Must be their location and outdoor marketing making things look good and then you are trapped when you find how things really are when the food comes.
