Had the eggplant cooked in a clay pot. Decent but not worth ordering - just lots of melted cheese and as much flavor of tomato paste as of paprika. Nice service though.

We ate here twice during our stay and the place was busy both times, do,book! The deer stew is a delight as is the Weiner schnitzel! If you like a deep, full bodied red wine, try the Sole, very, very good! The staff speak very good English and it's right in the heart of Pest! No frills dining and I'd... More

During our three weeks in Budapest, we were lucky enough to visit Lugas twice for dinner and felt so satisfied each time. This is another real deal authentic Hungarian cuisine and at these prices, wow, hard to beat!!! First off, it's a cozy restaurant, so if the patio is closed (cold, rain, etc...), be aware that it will be hard... More

Although they have other food, the Hungarian dishes were most excellent. I loved my melt in the mouth cabbage roll, and everyone else's food looked pretty good too. The waitress, Ildiko was warm, welcoming, and proficient. Service was quite fast, house wine was decent, and I left quite stuffed. Located right behind St. Stephen's Cathedral ( across the road) called... More

We had dinner here on our first night in Budapest and really enjoyed it. The restaurant is small but comfortable and the quality of the food was very good. Would definitely eat here again.

We just arrived in town and we were searching for somewhere for lunch. We just dropped in on spec and they moved a table of 2 in the restaurant to accommodate our table of 8 people and we are so glad they did. The food was excellent and not one of us were disappointed with our food. I would especially... More

It was our 3rd night in Budapest and had not tried the goulash dish yet so we decided to try this place out. We had a 12 euros meal with 3 courses. The food was really delicious and the service was the best we had so fae during our stay! I strongly recommended.

Thank Christine G
