We stayed there this evening. The restaurant is a robbery. The managers try to confuse you with prices. Just an example of this disgust: a red prawn is 25 euros!!!! (Remember: ONE PRAWN!!!) I don't think this is only a place to advice against! I...More

I had the frutti di mare risotto and my partner had the lobster soup. His dish was amazingly delicious (though a bit small) and mine was good in size but lacking in flavours. The texture of the sea food felt good and fresh in the...More

Wow ! We absolutely loved this place. The fish could not be any more fresh. Grilled squid for starters and mackerel and sea bass for the main. Just perfect. Attentive, knowledgeable and smiley staff. We were also introduced to the Hungarian "Champagne" and loved it....More

This is a special place at which you pay a special price for very good seafood. We had Sea Bass grilled, King Prawns and Octopus. The salad side and the cauliflower puree were very good complementary sides. The seafood was beautifully cooked. We paid more...More

The very first seafood bistro in Budapest. Fresh seafood straight from the harbours. Fishes, crabs, shrimps, and seashells. Pick any of them, grab a glass of wine, enjoy the unique atmosphere and your delicious meal. Take it easy and don't worry about the fish-knife!
