Food and drink
The menu is enormous, and concentrates on meat-heavy, home-style Hungarian cooking served in clay dishes or on wooden plates. A typical example is the Farmer’s Pan - a spread including liver sausage, black pudding, paprika sausage, roast pork, dumplings, cabbage and potato. Wear trousers with an elastic waistband...
You sit at wooden benches in a brick cellar set with lovely stained-glass windows. It’s always busy, and the atmosphere can be rather frenetic as waiters rush about to keep pace with the orders. The chatter and movement is all part of the experience.
It's good, but don’t expect the waiters to have spare moments to natter - they’re usually rushed off their feet.
It's very central, at the southern end of Váci utca. The entrance is actually on Pintér utca, a side road just off Váci utca.
It's great value. The above-mentioned Farmer’s Pan only costs 2,950 forints, and the bulk of the main courses are under 3,000 forints. Platters for two to share offer even better value.
