The place is all about stepping aboard a pirate ship, and the reconstruction is pretty good. We went there in search of a more Hungarian food, specifically goulash soup, which we didn't order in the end. We read the reviews here and expected large portions, so we skipped to second course. We ordered international food because we were not particularly... More

Calico Jack's is open year round, but it an especially fun place during the spring and summer when you can sit outside, eat and drink, and watch Hungary pass by. It is right along the Debrecen tram route and has a tram stop at its location. Don't miss Calico Jack's.

We had a few drinks at the bar around 4pm, not many in and there was little atmosphere, surroundings were a bit dated and more like a kids zone. Got the bill, the drinks were expensive by local standards, but I was dissapointed to see we had been charged for service, no real explanation so back to the bars in... More

Inside the restaurant is decorated like an old pirate ship.... but that's not all, they serve typical Hungarian food and not only. The food is great and also the dish is very nice decorated. Attention on portions ... it is possible not to be able to eat all especially if you order more dishes .... some of the portions are... More

Reasonably priced western / Hungarian food restaurant but the wait for the service and food was quite long. We waited 20-30 mins for drinks and salad to be served and at the end, 10 mins for the bill to arrive. Note that the restaurant was not busy at that time, only few tables were occupied. However, food is good and... More

I booked a table via internet, it was easy as one,two ,three. The first thing what was disappointing is definitely the waiter . I asked for a cocktail and he asked back how does it look like and what's that. It was shocking. The waiter doesn't know their own menu at all? The second when we got the drinks he... More

Themed as a ship, it offers simple food. It is basic, but well executed. The layout is good and allows for large groups.
