Refined rural gastronomy in the heart of Esztergom.

About Us

Our determined goal is to call the magic of the rural gastronomy to life again, here, in the heart of Esztergom, one of the most beautiful city along the way of Duna river. Our chef, Ádám Barna is the pride ambassador of the modern and original approach to the Hungarian gastronomy. He likes to combine his skills and experiences acquired in the high-end gastronomy with the simplicity of the Hungarian traditional dishes, bringing out the best of the ingredients, pulling out the forgotten and boring declared dishes to raise them to new, exciting levels that create genuine experiences.
