Restaurant details

Hungary is not Northern Italy or Burgundy, as no other country is. In everyday experience it means that while in Budapest there are now very high-quality restaurants, in the countryside the picture is less bright. This is, however, slowly changing. In the North-Eastern town of Mád, perhaps the "epicenter" of the Tokaj wine-region, there are as many as three very good ones now, Percze being perhaps the best priced of them. In brief very innovative, high quality cuisine, served - weather permitting - on a very attractive terrace. On workdays at lunchtime there are budget meals for as little as some 3.5 euros, as good as any from the menu. They only serve white wines, understandable considering the location but admittedly they are trying to adjust the menu to this. (No dishes which specifically ask for red.) The wines they serve are from the Szepsy family's winery, one of the very best - if not the best indeed - in this region. Having tried most of them - there are not too many dry ones served by the glass - all were good, the older vintages though being to concentrated and heavily aromatic and mineral for my taste. (May appeal to other palates.) The younger vintages are absolutely superb, the very best of this great wine region. Although take-away price for wines is the same as for locally consumed (quite unusual pricing, for that matter) I would tend to say that it is not the take away which is expensive but the one drunk there is a bargain. Service is also excellent. A must try, in brief, if and when passing nearby.

Plesant atmosphere, amazing food for all taste, rich wine selection. We visited it for a dinner and we were astonished, because we didn't expected this high quality food and service in a small village. The foods we have chosen were extremely delicious, we were more satisfied than in some fine dining restaurant in Budapest. We didn't want to have dessert in the evening so we went back to try next afternoon and it worth also the coffee was perfect. Definitely we will come back.

Beautiful view of the city of Mád, Hungary, with tastes that are special, service that is attentive and wine that is rich. Make sure you come back twice once for the evening feel and once to enjoy the view in the daylight. Either way you'll be treated to great tastes and good wine. The town is a great place to wander around - but be sure to have a walking guide book to get the full story of this town. It has a rich history not only as a center for this wine country but it was also a center for commerce, religion and history. Enjoy it over a few days along with other local sites of interest.

We stayed in the R40 apartman house and the lady recommended the Percze Restaurant to us. I must say we don't regret that we came here and had one of the best service so far! When we entered it was full house so the waiter recommended us to have a walk outisde of the restaurant with a glass of wine. While we were waiting we had a great view to Mád and enjoyed our lovely wine. After 15 mins we got back and our table were waiting to us:) the food was so delicious but unfortunately not a big portions:( I wanted to eat more and more It was that good! The waiter recommended really good wine pairings for our meal. We felt really special when also the Chef asked us how we enjoyed our meal:) I can only recommend this nice restaurant with its friendly staff! Can't wait to get a chance and go back:) thank you Percze!
