At this place you have to order fish/food/drink at the counter. It was a language barrier problem to order because the menu was in Hungarian. Staff speaks English though, Food came out at reasonable time, and drink was ok.

They sell it per 100 gr, they weigh the fish or fish fillet you choose at the counter before cooking, you pay accordingly..A middle size portion would cost 13-17 € . The side dish costs are around 3-6 €.

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!
