I don't remember the name of the restaurant but it's inside a kind of a club's house, open to anybody to come in. There are two floors but I didn't check the upper one. I felt it was more the "choosen" ones.
Favorite Dish: A set lunch with two or three options for 1.200 HUF ~4 Euro. It included soup , main course, bread and beverage. I was very satisfied with the meal.
The expression "Önkiszogáló étterem" means a self service canteen where you choose from ready made food, like the "dish of the day" but the difference is that here are there many "dishes of the day" at the same time. You cand find these "Önkiszogáló étterem" nearly everywhere in Hungary and they are terrific places for inexpensive, hearty and good food. They are for the locals of course, so the food is local. The level of English spoken varies a lot, naturally, but you can always point and ask, perhaps in German, which many of the elder knows quite well.
Favorite Dish: I had fritated cheese with french fries/pommes frites and a soft drink. It costed not more than 840 HUF ~2,75 Euro and tasted very good!
Favorite Dish: I had chicken breast marinated in youghurt and honey, potatoe crocettes, Turkish sallad and juice. It costed 2.700 HUF ~10 Euro. The food was good but not more than that. I believe the price was a bit higher than in many other restaurants.
The best part of Hungarian cooking for me are the pancakes, but so many restaurants here do them badly, some even engaging in the sin of microwaving. Here they do things differently, and this was top quality pancakes, both savoury and sweet, and all freshly cooked to order. Not only that but the cellar was cosy and perfectly decorated, the service was friendly and sharp, and the presentation of the pancakes so good I had to take a photograph (and come back the next day for seconds).
The name basically means pancake palace, and it certainly deserves it.
Open midday until 11pm.
Favorite Dish: Pancakes!
The place is in a dark basement type pub, lots of memorabilia on the walls lots to look at and lokes of jokes etc .... and when the food comes the portions are huge!! Well worth the wait and the money... oh and if you cant finish them they put them in a doggy -bag for you to take home!
Favorite Dish: Mine was the lasagna!yum yum
For days ate only meet, so we decided to go for a pizza. But this restaurant is terrible. The staff is unpleasant to serve, the near company leaves after a quarter to wait. We didn’t leave a wait a little more. When finally the stuff came is bored and very unfriendly.
Finally the pizza was maybe the worst pizza we ever eat.
We had a nice lunch in Eger at a restaurant in the Offi-Haz hotel to the east of the main square. Service was good, the food was good and the price was good too!
I tried pork medallions with potatoes while Ruth went for venison stew. I also had two halves of the excellent local beer, Gossar. The total cost was 3500 HUFs (about 15 Euro) for everything.
After a great evening drinking wine at the Valley of the Beautiful Women we walked (a little unsteadily) back to Eger. I don't remember much about this walk other than we took some silly pictures and then ended up at a posh restaurant in the centre of town. I think it was called Udvarhaz and it was on the street leading to the castle.
We sat out on the terrace and chose the good value toruist menu which consisted of onion soup for starter, pork for main course and pancakes for dessert. We definitely shouldn't have had wine but the wine waiter was a nice guy and persuaded us to try a bottle of Cuvee Red - to be honest we didn't need much persuading.
After the wine waiter did his thing I was rather worried we had read the menu wrong and ordered an 18000 HUF bottle rather than one for 1800. I was even more worried when we tasted the wine and it was absolutely delicious. Though after 5 glasses in the Valley I suppose anything would have tasted nice. In the end all worked out well at 500 HUFs for everything. We woke up the next morning with sore heads and a hazy memory of the night before.
Vienna is known for pastries, though Hungary can't be too far behind. Whether in Budapest or Eger, one will more likely than not pass by a pastry shop. My advice - stop and eat the pastries! I had a frog (pictured), and it was hm hm good.
In the western boundary of the town there is a valley full of wine-cellars, where you can buy wine just from barrels (up to 2 euro per 1 liter). Since the cellars usually do not sell food in their neighborhood grew many restaurants. I recommend you to try Hungarian cuisine in one of the csarda, local traditional restaurants.
"The valley of Beautiful Lady" = Hungarian Szepasszony-volgy.
Feher Szarvas Vadasztanya (White Stag Hunting Inn), located next door to the Park Hotel at Klapka street. a few blocks south of Dobo Istvan ter, is one of Eger's best-known and best-loved restaurants.
Favorite Dish: The menu offers a full range of Hungarian wild-game specialties. The hearty, paprika-laced stews are especially good. Award-winning regional wines are featured. A piano and bass duet play nightly, amid the kitschy hunting lodge decor. The restaurant is open daily from noon to midnight, and reservations are recommended.
Wine cellars without food, but in the nice Woman Valley are many good resaturants with hungarian "GULASH" and other regional foods
Does it need any comment ?
Just have to be there !
Just be aware that most of the cellars would close later in the evenings.
