A very busy night. Our waiter had little interest in doing his job. We ordered a langoah and pizza. The pizza was a horrible mistake. Left most than half on the plate. Would not come again due to the service.

The menu is very varied. Yes there are veggie options. I csn not speak Hungarian and your menu choices are helped by the waitor and pictures of the meals. I had potato and cheese dumplings in tomato saucewith walnuts.
