We were looking for a pasta meal and ended up here. Nothing hugely stand out with the staff(no one was overly outstanding) although all were friendly enough and accomodating. Food was good. Risotto with truffle was fantastic. Not overly cheap but would definitely return

District V / Inner City
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
