Evening meal. Fancied some hungarian type of meal and looked at the reviews. The place was difficult to find. I went around it once and then eventually found the restaurant with a small sign. Greeted by the waiter which I felt was not pleasant. Place...More

I booked this based on location and reviews and was not disappointed. The place, service and food were excellent. Our group of 5 were all equally impressed and delighted. The added bonus was that we were staying in a beautiful apartment just a stone's throw...More

Seek it out, it’s worth it. I had Wild Boar stew with quince and potato croquettes and my husband had tenderloin of beef. It was so tasty and what I liked about the food was that you could taste each of the ingredients. No extra...More

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention

I found the restaurant tricky to find. It is hidden through an archway and to the left of the large inner courtyard. Keep your eyes peeled for the sign at 16 Karolyi utca
