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

I really enjoyed this restaurant. It wasn't expensive at all. The sangria tasted great. The staff were very friendly and the service was good. It is pretty central, a 10 minute walk from the Liberty Bridge (Szabadság híd). There was lots of different tapas to choose from and they all tasted great! One of the best meals I had in... More

First visit to Budapest and went to this restaurant on a recommendation...and it absolutely did not disappoint!! The food and wine were fantastic and the service was with a smile! Will be extremely hard to beat this on the rest of our visit.

I love this place. I've been there several times and the food is always really good. They have a big menu, I recommend especially baby squid and the spinach with ham. The restaurant is small and cosy. Prices are totally fair.

On our recent trip to Budapest, found this place and were glad we did. Thinking of more Hungarian food, we stumbled on this tapas place and found ourselves enjoying a variety of seafood, spicy Italian-style sauces, some meatballs, salads and nice wines to go along with it all. Sat outdoors, not really a square, but almost, people watching. Service was... More
