I came here last summer and again this winter both times were very very good. Waiters were very helpful and friendly and picked out a very nice wine. The food was lovely and came out pretty quick. I love the way it wasn't super expensive either but that's just budapest. I'd recommend this place 100%

Tried to get a table the other day, but the place was packed, so we went the next day instead at around 16.30. The food arrived incredibly fast after we ordered. We had 6 different dishes and they were all good and tasted fresh. The chorizo in red wine sauce was delicious.

We were lucky someone did not turn up for his/ her reservation so we we prompted moved over. Service was attentive and quick. Menu was... More

Book ahead for dinner. This place needs a reservation and it's pretty easy to do online. The service is great, the food is amazing and wine is killer. Price point is medium to high but really worth it. Chef in the back has really been consistent in preparing great dishes. The menu indicates dishes that are vegetarian, glutton & dairy... More

Great restaurant, best tapas bar in Budapest. Our tapas dishes arrived quickly,all of them very delicious:try the eggplant filled with cheese and the chirizo boiled in redwine! Prices are ok,for an average person 3 tapas is enough!The service is good although they didn't look after the guests:you have to raise your hand to get a lemonade refill.

We called in here as it was near our hotel and provided an easy solution for our teenage children who wanted a change from Hungarian food. Although not served in typical tapas style the food was good and prices reasonable. Happy to recommend to other families.

We emailed this place to try and reserve bit I didn't hear anything back. We arrived at 7pm on a Friday and although there were 3 free tables (though reserved) they said we had to eat at the bar, the table didn't arrive before we left. The bar was fine though. Service is ok, you have to signal them rather... More
