About Us

The restaurant was founded by János Németh and his family in 1982, during the time of the Iron Curtain. Its name comes from the main character of Mór Jókai's novel 'Rab Ráby,' who lived in Szentendre and played a major role in the fight against corruption during the reign of Joseph II. The building that was transformed into the restaurant used to be a blacksmith's workshop over 100 years ago. Besides an ethnographic exhibition, the restaurant also features rare curiosities.

What Our Guests Say

Sarah Brown

Tourist trap but still fantastic. The goulash is really tasty and served in a metal cauldron. The decoration is... Super... All types of old vintage things, you can stay in the restaurant for 2h and you'll never get bored of looking at the walls. The chairs have coat of arms. Ideal for groups of friends that want to travel back in time and have a great time together.

Linda Lewis

The greatest find in Szentandre! The goulash is amazing. Definitely a must when near/in Budapest. This restaurant is worth the trip! :)

David White

Best place in Szentandre to get the beloved Hungarian fisherman soup. It comes with a side of peasant bread and some sought of chili paste. You can ask for more bread if you run out. The restaurant is medieval themed and decked fully with interesting items and trinkets. The prices are very reasonable.
