Hagi Udvar is a legendary restaurant among the locals with a history dating back to the 19th century. The first theatre in the city was opened in 1856 and after a flood, the building was renovated by the city and sold to Haggenmacher Brewery in 1896 to become a beer hall. The restaurant has gained popularity since the 30s, and has been a center of nightlife and a meeting place for intellectuals. Among others, poet Miklós Radnóti, comedian Géza Boncz, opera singer József Gregor, actress Éva Ruttkai, singer Pál Szécsi, actress Hilda Gobbi, actor Zoltán Latinovits, singer Margit Bangó have dined at Hagi Udvar.
The restaurant has expanded several times and eventually permanently closed in the mid-1990s. In the spring of 2018, young entrepreneurs, Dr. Tibor Farkas Molnár and Dr. Gyula Gálosi, reopened the restaurant and today it is once again a lively meeting and lounging area.
They serve a variety of home-made dishes with local Hungarian flavors as well as modern cuisine. There are also private rooms for family and corporate events.
