“Good food, good service, good location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2013

We found this on the last night of our holiday almost by accident after walking around for ages. The food was reasonably priced and despite other reviews my pizza diavolo was excellent. When a big storm came in over the river the staff quickly helped everyone move indoors. Staff were also friendly and talkative. There was a wide choice of food for different price ranges and we had a great evening.

“Good food with a great view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2013 via mobile

We came upon this restaurant as we were strolling on the Pest side of the Danube in the evening. There are many expensive restaurants in this area, so we were pleased to find this reasonably priced bistro where were could enjoy good food and the fabulous evening view of Buda castle across the river.

“Glad I did not read other reviews - this place is excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2013 via mobile

Called in one stormy night with heavy rain so we did not want to walk far from the hotel. They made us very welcome and found us a table near the bar since the restaurant was already full. Good advice regarding the menu steered us towards the Hungarian choices.

Really do not understand some reviews although we probably had the more expensive food and wine. Really excellent fillet steak cooked perfectly (blue for me). Great bottle of red wine, can't remember which but had Cabernet Franc as the main grape.

For desert we tried 2 types of Hungarian cake both were very good. Cold limoncello and and an espresso to finish rounded off a very good meal.

Will return!!

“A good little bar for atmosphere and drinks.”

A nice place to drink and have a snack, interesting decor, but beware of the toilets, they could be better.

“Do not eat at this place”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2012

Recently visited Budapest and had a wonderful few days break.
But there was one exception,an evening ruined by a meal at this place.
The waiter tried to hurry us to order when there was very few people in the
place ,the food when it came up was bland and tasteless my wifes pasta was
under cooked and to top it all the bill was way over the top.
My meal was so bad I left most of it,the waiter would not offer any compensation or
reduction.
If I had been in England I would have not paid,but your not to know what might happen
in a foreign country.
These people should not be running a Restaurant.
