I am Hungarian. I was with Hungarian people, however I was not in charge of the bill so they OVERCHARGED by 2000 HUF. This cafe will try anything. Dirty pigs. DO NOT GO!! I would rate 0 if I could.

The food is very tasty, if you are not hungry as the wolf and have time enough to wait hours and enjoy the great atmosphere of the square.

Ate twice here - steak and chips on first occasion was good, but hungarian dishes on second night proved to be a bit basic and disappointing. Good atmosphere though, friendly staff and the service was excellent.

Interesting place made famous by Frank Zappa. The food was good without being stunning but made a change from 2 previous nights of fine dining.

Very cosy and nice cafe/bar with friendly staff and a good selection of different drinks. Had a good glass of red wine and a cider, only there for drinks, so can not comment on the food. But would definitely recommend.
