The Old Tanyacsárda is situated 71 km far from Budapest. It is welcoming their guests since 1973 near the small-town, Lajosmizse on the Great Hungarian Plain. The restaurant had started as a wood-house buffet but for now it became one of the most successful restaurants of our country; its fame was taken wind by many domestic guests coming from all over the country and also by many foreign guests. The excellent, Hungarian style kitchen of the Tanyacsárda has deserved rightly the title of “The best restaurant of the Region” (1999, 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2011) and in addition to this the company has won several international awards on gastronomic competitions and exhibitions (Protectorate table (Védnöki tábla), Golden bull (Aranybika), Chevalier - Maison de Qulite, Chaine des Rotisseurs, the member of the Top 10). In 2005 the catering line of business has chosen Tanyacsárda Restaurant among the best restaurants of Hungary and has awarded with the maximum three stars. In 2007, 2011 and in 2015 Tanyacsárda has received the Hungarian Tourism Quality Award and The Rosemary Award from the Hungarian National Tourist Office (Magyar Turizmus Zrt.) and it has won “the host of the year” in 2017, which was founded by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Bács-Kiskun County.
In addition to the specialties of the master chefs – already becoming traditional - here the guests are looked forward to series of gastronomical events. These programmes are attached to holidays and celebrated days. The guests are invited to gastronomical deliciousness, which are completed with programmes (horse-show, ox-grilling, Puszta Olympic Games): there will be organised the “Sobri” Fish Days, the grape harvest, the pig-killing on Andrew’s day and some other programmes, where the lover of culinary deliciousness will certainly find their hope. The restaurant is welcoming guests every day from 11.00 am till 10.00 pm (in winter till 09.00 pm), where evenings the gipsy band takes care of the pleasant feeling.
The New Tanyacsárda what was founded in 1992. It can be found 63 km far from Budapest on a 50 hectares area. The visitors can choose in addition to the famous Hungarian tastes among traditional programmes, too: Hungarian folklore programme, gipsy-show, spectacular dance theatre production - Folkshow - are interesting sights for both of the domestic and foreign guests.

The stable of our horse ranch consists of 110 horses: here can be found the Hungarian sport halfbred and the Lipizaner. This horse ranch also holds a lot of possibilities: horse riding, horse-show, horse-show at night with the dance of witches at the camp-fire, riding by horse-drawn carriages in the Puszta can do the programmes of the families and groups colourful here. On the covered grandstand hundreds of people can see the horse-show, which takes place on a sandy ground, the stud-riding, which provides an everlasting experience, you can admire the show of the "Puszta Ötös" five, the obstacle driving of coach and four, the training of a donkey and several field events of horse-herds.

Stable of the Tanyacsárda
We have Lipizaner and Hungarian halfbred rearing. Every year 15 foals are born on average. The majority of them are Lipizaner breed. The task of the rearing is to compose supply to horse shows and to produce breed coach and saddle horses for sale. Those breed Lipizaner and halfbred coach horses, who went from our rearing, enhance the Hungarian and foreign coach and two and coach and four. Moreover, these horses serve hobby purposes, too. Our Hungarian halfbred horses are suitable for hobby saddle and driver horse. Every year 10-15 horses are sold on average.
The upbringing of the foals happens in stud-keeping. We move the foals 4-5 kilometres every day between deep sand lie of the land. We get positive feedback from our customers for the good constitutional stability of our horses. On our yard we constantly sell carriage and saddle horses.
Possibility for accommodation
The visitors are acquainted with not only the Hungarian specialties and the old horse-traditions, but “the Hungarian hospitality” is also shown to them. There are a lot of guests, who search for a peaceful place in the Puszta: we welcome guests in the Guesthouse of Tanyacsárda and in the new Blockhouse. We look forward guests with more rooms
Event organization unlimitedly for companies, even in an outdoor place
The Old and New Tanyacsárda do not know impossible. It happens often that smaller, important corporate meetings are held at our place, but we are not afraid of the inquiries for events with hundreds of people or possibly thousands of people. Our capacities and facilities enable to comply with practically every demand with little organization.
One of the milestone of this was the 90th birthday of IBUSZ in 1992, when we welcomed 5000 people. Besides another really memorable occasion was the opening ceremony of Mercedes factory in 2012, we had to stand in the gap simultaneously in 20 outdoor places. Since then the plant and headcount grow constantly, so we provide events from VIP receptions with 20 people until works meeting with 4,500 people.
The expectations of the procurers are more and more higher. Previously the deliverance of foods and beverages was sufficient, when we did catering in an outdoor place. Today also complete event organizational tasks associate to this, eg. assurance of power, water and heating on the spot, the tent, the furniture, sound- and light technology, decoration, hostesses, organization of the programme… and everything, which still occurs.
