We might as well have been sat on the knees of the jazz band we were that close. This made conversation very difficult so we had to shout. That said, the jazz was very good. The service was excellent, the food good and the wine...More

Been there for dinner, left disappointed. The service was poor and unattentive and the food was average, so we didn't stay for dessert. Not coming back.

Everything great about this restaurant - the welcome, atmosphere, decor, free drink while waited for table, live music - except the food. Not terrible, just not good... tasteless.

One of the best restaurants in Budapest. We found this restaurant in our lonely planet guide and it was worth the visit. Lovely staff and great food and cocktails!

Welcoming champagne was provided once we entered the restaurant. Waitress was nice and the environment is relaxing. They offer very good food at a reasonable price.

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

Hi Jeaneth A! We did not need high chair, but i observed that they had a child corner and colored pencils were in each table at that time, so I assume they are prepared for babies and toddlers.

There was a large covered patio with a stage and lighting and many small, intimate rooms. Furnishings were creative and rustic-I think NYE would be a lot of fun there!
