“Amazing bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2014

This was my favourite bar in Budapest. It's laid back and has a great atmosphere. Went there several times and would recommend it to anyone who likes to sit back, relax and have a beer. Great prices!

“For beer lovers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2014

Élesztő beer garden is a bit out of the city, but easy to reach with metro or tram. The atmosphere is always great and you can choose of 20 different craft beer, mainly Hungarian ones. Worth to visit them.

“"Perfection in a glass"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 December 2013

Just of the well worn tourist trail; this ruin bar is a great way to while away a few mellow hours. The bar has two large rooms together with a decent area around the bar and an outdoor garden. It's a friendly place with a helpful bar staff. We visited the bar twice in our four day stay, and wished we'd been able to go again. I tried a cloudy plum beer which was excellent and although not particularly strong (3.3%) was very moreish. This is a great bar and we will definitely be re-visiting on our next trip to Budpest.

“Craft Beer Heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2013

Stopped with friends after dinner and this place is great. Many good quality specialty beers on tap and more in bottles.

Bartenders and servers are friendly and more than willing to discuss their offerings as I mentioned are vast.

Price wise very good since this ruin pub does sit away out from the center tourist area but not difficult or far to get to ... be it on foot or public transportation. Seating is available inside and out so you can choose where you want to enjoy your beverage.

One of the few places in the city you can try a some Korty beer which is the custom craft beer blending Tokaji Aszu and beer phenomenal and great on a hot summer evening.

Well worth seeking out when you are in town or in the area.

“Some Fine Crafted Beer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

Rated 3rd best bar with craft beer in Budapest by Ratebeer.com. 16 beers on tap with styles that really vary, from Stout to IPA, Pilsner, wheat beers, Amber Ales, and a lot more. The staff was friendly and spoke good english noting what we liked and offering us to taste before ordering a pint. The outside garden (in ruin pub style) is great and does not feel overstuffed even if it's always busy. We went back and took some friends who also really appreciated the place.
