Everything was delicious. Feels like family owned and authentic Hungarian cuisine. I had the Veal Chop and my wife had the tenderloin. Both were quite flavorful and delicious. We especially liked the duck/veggie spread with warm bread and the complimentary soup with duck liver dumpling.

We have been to Tokaj 4 times and have been very pleased with the quality of the food and the service. The music is a bit louder than we would like since we usually go with friends and like to talk at the table. However the musician is very talented. The wines are interesting because of the selection - including some very fine Hungarian wines. Love the desserts -- makes me think of what my Hungarian grandmother used to make. We will go again!

We’ve been there twice now and the food has been on point with generous portions. We have not been disappointed in any of the meals and have always had left overs. What a hidden gem.

This is a wonderful local restaurant with outstanding Hungarian-inflected food and excellent personal service. Also an interesting wine list with lots of by-the-glass options.

They have live violin and canned music on Fri and Sat evenings - and I would recommend coming on other nights. The noise level with the music is just too much for such a small room. We have found it to be more pleasant on non-music nights.

Be warned that the portions are large!

It was our first visit to Tokaj, and we had a wonderful experience. The owner waited on us, and could not have been more pleasant. The food was great! We should not have, but we did have the walnut cake, which was to die for! A violinist was playing, and it was a perfect evening. We will be back for sure. This charming restaurant is a hidden gem.

Our first and last visit. The wine was excellent. However, the salad was very good and the remainder of the food was overly spiced and barely edible
The desert crepe was swimming in chocolate sauce and fortunately a small part did not get dunked in the sauce. The wine cost 38.00 and the food 70.00
Better prepared food for the same price can be enjoyed at other restaurants.

Excellent food made from scratch! Chef very attentive, customer friendly. Having in the background the play of a live violinist was an unexpected bonus which upgraded an already excellent dinner to a sophisticated experience! It is a restaurant on my recommendation list!

The quaint restaurant was lovely and the live violin music was really lovely in the background with contemporary sounds. The service was exceptional with a smile. And then the food! The food stole the show from the lovely soup like my mother used to make. A lovely salad that we shared was great. Then we started with the pheasant wrapped in crepe with a wine sauce that was out of this world delish! The veal paprikash was better than I've had since last visiting Hungary years ago. The duck was cooked to absolute perfection. I truly cannot wait to go back again! And again!

Very charming European-style restaurant with friendly staff and excellent food. Three of the four of us had never had Hungarian food before and the waitress was very helpful steering us toward more traditional dishes. Four different meals were all excellent and the wines perfectly complemented the food. In the European tradition, we had the table for the evening and spent lots of time talking between courses. Service was a bit slow but we didn't mind since we were thoroughly enjoying the food, drinks and delightful ambience.
