This is a small family run Hungarian restaurant serving delicious food at very reasonable prices. Goulash soup, Goulash with potato dumplings and home made strudel are highly recommended. Service is not rushed. Best to book in advance as only a small establishment. Well worth seeking...More

Chef/owner is funny and welcoming, as is his charming wife. Small place, but nothing is rushed. Food was great, although having a Chef as a waiter can be a bit put off by off menu requests (eg. putting the Ragu on the side for example....More

Description
Családias éttermünk a múlt század közepének ódon hangulatát idézi, a belváros szívében, a Duna-parttól egy sarokra, a Sörház és Molnár utca sarkán, a Váci utca tőszomszédságában található. Éttermünk kizárólag vacsoraidőben tart nyitva, keddtől szombatig, 18:00 órától 23:00 óráig. Minden hétfőn és vasárnap zárva vagyunk. Borlapunkon a magyar borászok remekműveinek adunk otthont. Konyhánkban tradícionális magyar ételeket készítünk, és szezonálisan változtatjuk az étlapkínálatunkat. A hagyományos magyaros konyha nem alkalmas vegán és vegetáriánus, valamint glutén- és laktózérzékenyek részére. Kis családi étterem vagyunk, így nagyobb társaságokat maximum 20 főig kizárólag menüvel tudunk fogadni. Éttermünkben nincs lehetőség gyerekszobát kialakítani, nem rendelkezik etetőszékkel, nem alkalmas kisgyermekes családok részére. Családos vendégeinket kizárólag a gyermek 7 éves korától tudjuk fogadni. Megértésüket köszönjük!
