Resembling a well-heeled domestic home yet boasting traditional folk touches, Pásztor Csárda has white chalk gates, a spacious garden area, centuries-old trees, wooden furniture, paprika chains on the walls and an oil-green stove. The attention to detail is tangible. All the dishes are based on old tried-and-tested recipes. If you have heard about the shabby looking Hungarian breed of pig the mangalica, you can try it here, washing it down with some honeyed pálinka afterwards. A gypsy house band will serenade you with classics from the world of Hungarian folk music.
