Kulács Csarda

Modern inn serving quality Hungarian cuisine

The Kulacs Csarda/Kulacs Inn is one of Eger's best restaurants in which to get traditional Hungarian fare.

Located in Szépasszony Völgy/Valley of the Beautiful Women and boasting its own cellar, the Kulacs Csarda may well be a recent construction but the menu certainly isn't stuffed as it is with the Hungarian classics: fish soup, paprika chicken, stuffed cabbage and lentil főzelék, are all in attendance and are top drawer when it comes to taste and quality.

The restaurant is in a large cellar-like room which, although great for groups, is not ideal for couples or families looking for a bit of peace and quiet. There is, however, a very nice terrace framed by trailing vines where you can eat on fine days.

What does Ilkka say?

Food and drink, not necessarily in that order, are his life and we have him to thank for the restaurant, bars and club reviews throughout this site.

"The other brilliant restaurant (the other being the Kodmon Csarda) in the Valley of the Beautiful Womn. They must have the nicest terrace in town, with vines growing above and around the tables. Also, some of the best Hungarian cuisine prepared in a traditional way. You can have a perfect bowl of goulash or the famous Hungarian fish soup here before hitting the wine cellars in the valley. Also, there’s a gypsy band playing most of the time, so if you want to have a real Hungarian tavern experience like back in the days, this might be your best bet for a brilliant evening in Eger."

In short, Kulacs Csarda is a great place for those wishing to sample some of Hungary's signature dishes prepared to a very high standard. Due to its close proximity to the cellars of Szépasszony Völgy, the inn also has a great wine list which complements the cuisine wonderfully.

If, however, you like your food light on fat and heavy on vegetables, then you'd be better off looking somewhere else.
