Situated in a prime position, this Greek restaurant offers a great view over the Danube to Gellert Hill and the Liberation Monument. In summer, the terrace is a wonderful sun-trap - make sure you bring your shades.

The decor recalls holidays in Greece. The stucco on the walls is carved to resemble a white grotto. The blue and white checked tablecloths and foliage hanging from every available hook invoke an Aegean atmosphere.

All the well-known favourites are here - moussaka for HUF 1190 and gyros (kebabs) for HUF 1090. Octopus (Ft 660) makes an unusual starter for the adventurous and the aubergine in bechamel sauce is a lighter but nonetheless extremely tasty dish (HUF 1290). A selection of meats for two people (HUF 3390) is a fun way to dine with a friend and the shrimps, sole and veal are all delicious too. Note that Greek salad is usually called Horiatiki (available here for HUF 550) in Greek restaurants. You could finish with sweet, sticky baklava and wash it down with retsina (HUF 1290 a bottle), Metaxa (HUF 700 for 4 cl) or ouzo (HUF 300 for 4 cl).
