“Just average, nothing more.”
Reviewed 2 August 2013

Just average, nothing more. Very good located restaurant. Balatonfüred center there. Unfortunately, for many people, and poor quality. The waiter leisurely. Typically once you go in.
In Balatonfüred is not a lot of good restaurants.

“Fast service, excellent food”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

The place was crowded but we were lucky to have a table as another couple just left as we arrived. We sat outdoors and had a view of the park. I had a steak with goose liver, truffle sauce and potato-doughnuts which was very good although a bit pricey. Service was quick and polite. It's not one of the cheapest places but it's worth the money, especially if you want something more than a lángos or a pizza.

“Go for the location, not the food”
Reviewed 20 June 2013

Sited against the treed park there is no doubting the setting is ace, especially on a hot evening if you can get a perimeter seat.

However the food is mediochre. Imaging goulash without paprica!!! More like beef stew than the Hungarian national dish. Wines come upwards of 4500HUF so settle for the house wine.

Too many eastern block tourists to bother with quality. Try the hotel just up the hill for a seriously better meal!!

“Good location, medium to poor quality food, indifferent service”
Reviewed 11 June 2013

The location of this huge restaurant is very nice, next to the lake and the main tourist center.

The food quality is medium to poor. Both goulash and fish soups were correct. Do not order a steak or you can if you want to receive an old and over-marinated piece of meat with no beef taste… Do not order goose liver! Poor quality, over cooked, almost burned, chewy and with a strong liver taste.

Service average minus – there are many waiters, but they prefer to chat together than pay attention to costumers.

I would definitely not return or maybe just to have a beer…

“Great service, good wines, good food”
Reviewed 18 May 2013

From the outside, it looks like a causal pizza place. But the menu and wine selection is extensive. One can eat "outside" on the patio, under the canopy, but enjoy the feel of being right on the promenade of Lake Balaton. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the food and wine and made excellent recommendations. His service was attentive and friendly.
