I am not a huge fan of very formal places and this restaurant just tries way too hard to be elegant.
I have been to some places that managed this with ease and Halászbástya is not one of them. The food is good and I had absolutely nothing to complain about it is just the general vibe that I dislike. If it was a bit more laid back and friendly this would be the place to go for sure since all other ingredients are there for a top notch restaurant.
However if you want good food in very classy surroundings with views to die for, this is the perfect place.

My husband and I visited Budapest this summer. While touring the Buda side of town, we decided to have a dinner in the restaurant located right inside the Fisherman's Bastion. We chose to be seated on the open-air patio where the view was breathtaking. The food was the best we've had throughout our entire trip. Our waiter was extremely courteous and helpful. He patiently explained about each dish that was unclear to us on the menu. Between serving other guests, he managed to find time to give us a "bird's eye tour" of the city, by pointing out interesting buildings and sites that are beautifully visible from the patio of the restaurant. We were extremely satisfied with everything. Not only our server, but the entire staff was very kind. They proved to us what the famous Hungarian hospitality is all about.

Most beautiful setting and wonderful service and food. The only disappointment was that after enjoying beautiful music and tipping the musician, we were asked to by a CD. How tacky for a high end evening. The joke of the trip.

Would recommend for a lovely evening, but beware of the musician

We reached the restaurant at 10 in the night. The kitchen had closed by the time but we still were given a table and they served us coffee and hot chocolate. If the food was as good as the hot chocolate I think the tourists can try the food. But I seriously recommend to visit the restaurant in the evening because it gives the best view of the city. Nice place to relax with a drink especially in the summer.

The building is like a castle. The service is warm friendly and they don't miss a trick. Located in the Buda side it's a step back in time. Views are the best in town and probably Europe. The music is a treat that adds to the old world flavor. Goulash soup is just wonderful. Don't do the breaded lamb. Still worth it and what a wonder dining experience.
