Jewish Restaurant
$$
“Rosenstein has become a very popular choice for both locals and tourists in the last few years - they serve traditional Hungarian and Jewish food, as well. The food is very good which is definitely worth the visit, even if it's a bit further away from most of the tourist attractions. The service is friendly - and my only complain would be that the restaurant is very average looking, not very nicely decorated. However, it doesn't change the taste of the food which is great! Booking is highly recommended.”
