Great river fish choices. I had wonderfully tasty carp fillets. Very typical Hungarian cooking. Strong paprika and chilli sauces - not for the faint hearted. City prices for three of us, 2 courses and a bottle of wine totalled 15000 Forint good value. Again, no...More

Came here when we were walking back from fisherman's landing. The soup was delicious. The servers are older men and it seems like a real local spot and that these guys have been working here awhile. Felt really authentic. The awning is a bit dated...More
