Founded in 1957 as a family enterprise by Ilona and Michael Somlai, with its unspoiled hungarian cuisine and the typical atmosphere the "Ilona" soon became a favorite meeting point for all who love a good meal.
The Restaurant was taken over by Maria Fodor, stepdaughter of Mr. Somlai in 1987. She has been the manager since. Ms. Fodor hung on to the traditional "Ilona-way", of course.
