“Great food for reasonable price”
Reviewed 12 May 2013 via mobile

We have been there after visiting Margits island,as we wanted to try hungarient traditional food. The service was nice,food delicious - all three courses we had,beer and wine ok. There was live gypsy music and they played excellent! You can sit outside in the garden. The bill was really a nice surprise -for the three course meal for two with some wines/beers it costed only about 12000 HUF.

“Surprisingly welcome open terrace”
Reviewed 8 October 2012

Decent and discreet service, very good food, good value for money. Interior is in hungarian rustical style but open terrace area is fantastic and very cosy. Really deserves a small climb from the main street :)

“Very good food, skillful gypsy music.”
Reviewed 17 July 2012

We went to get authentic Hungarian cuisine and gypsy music. We were pleased with both.
The four-person gypsy band was very good and eager to please.

The cold fruit soup was superb!
So was the catfish builoubaisse.
The duck with cabbage roll was fine, but not exceptional.

“Ok food for reasonable price, make sure you enjoy loud live gipsy music”
Reviewed 21 November 2011

We were a bit disappointed about the house/decor of the restaurant room. Food was okay although not stunning. The atmosphere was a bit odd but that was probably due to the fact that there were only three tables occupied around us. A shame that no more people (especially locals) did not show up on that night. We were not enthusiastic about the live gipsy music played. Since the restaurant was mostly empty, the music happened to be far too loud and the violonist a little bit too insisting to sell out his CD. After having politely declined we however kindly tipped the musicians but we did not get any thank you for this since it was getting a bit late and they were in a hurry to leave.... Did not leave an unforgettable memory.

“Great entertainment, wonderful food and top quality customer service”
Reviewed 2 March 2011

As I am Hungarian, when it came to choosing a good traditional restaurant to bring my spanish boyfriend to was not easy. I have went through loads of reviews, different options checking all the menus etc and this restaurant stood out for many reasons: the menu is proper authentic Hungarian (which is not as easy to find these days), they have live entertainment each night and the location is good too and of course the fact that it is open since a long time. We went there on a saturday night. the atmosphere was fantastic with the musicians and professinal, friendly service. The decoration of the restaurant and the food was as expected. Proper, traditional Hungarian. we had a great time for a really good price too.
