Rick Stevens paying a visit to Hungary could not resist the taste and aroma of the capital, Budapest. The rich culture go hand to hand like arts and crafts, and culinary traditions go hand to mouth in traditional cultures. It is delightful to see dinner-plate hand addorned by a cook who enjoys making plating it for you!
The wide ranging experience will make you wishing for more. More music, more colour, more conversation, more taste-caleidoscope. You feel more alive where people do not blend down, or water down their concepts or their food. To this traveler, the writer of this addition, the music and lyrics of Hungary remains a Great Story in the making. Much as a dinner at the countless old world restaurants in European cities and countryside. Find dozens of additions on Youtube.com by Rick Steves and our own photo presentations at Balaton Restaurant.

Nest Homes Builders Renovated our place to the last nail and wire in 1998, then refreshed it, also adding some new features during the weekdays in January 2007, painted the facilities and replace equipment. During the four-phase renovation we stayed open for the weekends, Friday-Saturday-Sunday, regular hours. Partial renovation of bathrooms 2015, painting in dining-rooms and some new equipment in the kitchen was in order next. We continually replace equipment as our kitchen gets busier every year, and in 2018 our gas-utility was doubled for future expansion. What next?....

Starting in 1997 this group of professionals began a 100% Custom Renovation here, in our current location. The 1928 building was lovingly stripped inside of the 100% obsolete plumbing and electrical components, heating and cooling systems. Of course walls and ceilings had to come down in the process. Once the structure was evaluated the new plans were made and our design was taking shape. All the electro-mechanical was installed up to date standards, layout became handicap accessible. Meantime old world non-symetrical oak-flooring was designed and made in Middlefield to restore the exact flooring as it was seen on Shaker Square and neighboring residences. In the winter custom flooring was installed by Nest Homes and adorned by walnut pluggings, the walls trimmed out with oak. Then we reopened in April 1998.
