Kiskakkuk Review

The Art Deco facade of the Little Cuckoo restaurant evokes the history of this once-fashionable residential neighborhood. The setting today is comfortable; wood-paneled walls and leather-upholstered chairs give the place a sophisticated, albeit homey, feel. Sunday finds multigenerational Hungarian families enjoying the familiar and attentive service. All the classic Hungarian poultry dishes are well done, including goose and duck leg with cabbage, and there are a few refined dishes, too, such as veal medallions in cream sauce and lamb with rosemary.

    mediocre

    the was our least favorite meal in 5 days in Budapest in 6/2008. It began with both a roach running across the table, and a flea - or other small insect that crawled out of a menu.

    Prices were very fair. Staff spoke very limited English, but could not have been nicer.

    The kaposzatas Cuekedl is almost (but not quite) as good as my grandmother's. The goose soup with matzo balls was fine, as was the tarragon game soup and the gulas, but I have had better versions of all 3 elsewhere. The same with the veal paprikash

    The stuffed turkey was a processed roll, not a fresh breast, and so on. Nothing was horrible, but there was nothing memorable or great.

    With so many other fine choices confronting a visitor, why visit this off the beaten track choice with so many other better ones available - like Cafe Kor, Menza, Csalogány 26, Kádár Étkezde, etc.

    PS - the place as almost empty - just like MO was.
