Hello from the city of Rock and Roll and Balaton Restaurant. We have been serving Clevelander's and tourists coming to Cleveland since 1964. Did you know?.... Cleveland holds the largest number of Hungarians, outside of the Karpathyan basin.
About Us Balaton Restaurant in Cleveland is most famous for it's superb Wiener Schnitzel and a variance of that, the Chicken Schnitzel. Other fine offerings on the menu include: Stuffed Cabbages, Goulashes, and the Hungarian Lecso, a yellow paprika and tomato based summer stew, and of course Chicken Paprikash.
Dinner then culminated with a delightful dessert, not too sweet,... just right.... the home made blincess, or Crepe Suzette, or Palacsinta with apricot, walnut, sweet cottage cheese, or poppy seed fillings. There are other deserts making dinner complete.
