Saw good reviews so without a reservation we tried for a table on spec: someone had not turned up so we were lucky. The host and son speak great English so were able to advise on questions. We started with grape salad and the mozzarella and bacon rolls. Both were very good with great wine recommendations. For mains it was pork tenderloin and shoulder of veal. The veal was confit for 7 hours and was a show stopper! Again each provided with its own wine recommendations. Service and food excellent. Don't shout too loudly or we'll never get in again!

Without doubt, best meal of the week. Great, unpretentious staff, who recommended the cheapest wine on the menu which was a perfect choice.

Chef is a genius (wrapped green beans in bacon).

Thoroughly recommend.

We stayed in a hotel nearby for our five day visit and had dinner here our first night since we could walk and the reviews were good. We were greeted and seated promptly and the staff was attentive, explaining the dishes on the menu and helping with wine selection.
We ended up eating there three times during our five day stay! The veal neck, duck, and goulash were delicious and the crepes for dessert were a special treat.
The atmosphere was nice, and we enjoyed the friendly atmosphere.
Highly recommended

I was a single and they were able to squeeze me in. I was very happy with every course and the accompanying wine selection. The service was friendly and efficient and the experience was a memorable one. Thank you!

I came across this place based on excellent reviews online. I lucked out and got a reservation same evening. I am so glad we discovered this gem of a restaurant!
We arrived 10 mins early for our reservation. The owner greeted us and apologized for like a hundred times that our table was not yet ready, even though we we early! He also treated us to complimentary sparkling wine while we waited!
Once our table was ready, he served us personally, taking the time to carefully answer all our questions about the menu, helping us make our choices and guiding us through the wine. We ended up ordering multiple courses because we wanted to try so many things on the menu. He suggested we get half servings of different wine so we could pair appropriate wine with each course. The wine cost by the glass is no more expensive than ordering a bottle, the owner seemed very concerned with us having the best experience in pairing the wine with the food.
We really loved both the food and the wine pairing suggested by him. The service was flawless. He also treated us to after-meal drinks. Next time we visit Budapest, will definitely return here.
