“My favourite restaurant in Buda”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

Budapest is full of good restaurants. Unfortunately, most of the tourists just prefer to dine in Pest. They miss an incredibly good restaurant in Buda, Csalogany 26.

We tried the wine-pairing menu. This is just gorgeous The food was excellent (elaborated Hungarian cuisine) and the (Hungarian) wine selection that accompanies every dish is just amazing. Before my visit to Hungary, I had never tried Hungarian wine, and now I look for it!

A special mention goes to the service, attentive and at the same time, they leave enough space for you. Also, they speak enough English to provide an appropriate explanation of what you are eating and drinking.

“amazing food, exceptional service”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

We had one of the most lovely dinners of our lives here. The food was delicious, fresh and perfectly prepared. We both had the 4 course meal and it was a good amount of food. While this is not in-expensive, it was an excellent value given the elegant courses and professional staff. If we visit Budapest again, we will certainly come back here.
