District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention

I don´t remember, but I found their website - isn´t possible to paste it here - find govinda.hu - switch to English - then click on restaurant and there is opening hours. Sunday is closed. Good luck and have a nice day !
