Pajta (“Barn” in Hungarian) is the perfect example of promoting the traditional values and gastronomy of the Őrség region through a modern lens. The restaurant (made up of several former agricultural buildings, redesigned by the renowned architect Gábor U. Nagy) is located in the middle of a beautiful field, stretching all the way down to the Szala river-bank. Flóra Marjai and Ferenc Kvasznicza, the owner of Pajta, wanted to create a place where traditions, and locally sourced ingredients meet modern gastronomy and five-star hospitality. The kitchen is led by Richárd Farkas, inspired by nature and the regional cooking.
We have opened our doors over 8 years ago, and at that time we were completely new to hospitality and running a business. Our sole goal was to create something valuable – and we feel like we have succeeded. Our regulars have became close friends, our colleagues are like family to us. Everything we cook with is sourced from the region, from small producers, local farms, hunters and foragers. We absolutely love what we do! (Flóra Marjai and Ferenc Kvasznicza)
