We had a wonderful late lunch. They accommodated 10 people in their backyard garden patio. Wonderfully nice hostess who speaks perfect English. Simple American child friendly chicken and noodles, and for the Hungarian adventure more traditional dishes like vadas marhahus. Nice people, good food, welcome...More

I like this place very much, they are friendly. Cuisine is so good, that none of my Aussie friends I brought there were complaining at all. And the pricing is fine as well.
