My partner and I both had the catfish burger, which was incredible. The service was outstanding as they were so friendly and attentive. The wine was lovely and the deserts were fantastic.

We went here for dinner and the food was outstanding. The service was fantastic and the menu very clear (which for someone who suffers with intolerances is fabulous it’s saves me from asking). The food was really fresh and tasty best I ate in Budapest
