Food and drink
The inventive, international menu changes monthly and the quality is superb. Goose and goose-liver specialities seemed prominent during my visit, and there’s also a dedicated pastry chef - one staple here is that every evening at 9pm they offer warm havelka (little pastries with plum filling). In summer, they prepare dishes of spare ribs cooked on lava stones.
The walls are crammed with nostalgic framed posters and tram paraphernalia, and there’s an old-fashioned feel despite the modern influences on the menu. A glass conservatory-style area overlooks a shady terrace that is popular during the fairer months.
It’s a few kilometres north west of Castle Hill on the Buda side of the river, at the top of the main road of Budakeszi út; you can take tram 56 or bus 22 from Moszkva tér.
I think the food is well priced, given the quality. Main courses are between 2,500 forints and 4,500 forints.
