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!
