*THIS PLACE SHOULD BE AT THE TOP OF THE CHARTS* I have lived all over the world (tasted a variety of fish) and have eaten at many of the restaurants in Budapest. This is by far the best place for seafood and hospitality (which are both rare in this city.) nice choice of wines, spirits and mixtures as well as the main.. FISH!! The prices are normal compared to Europe but a bit higher for the hungarian market. L.O.V.E.

We came here with family during our short stay in Budapest and those of us visiting from London loved the place!

The shop has quite a nautical feel to it which ties in well with the fact seafood is their main theme. We both ordered the 'fish & chips' (as we like to play it safe with seafoods generally)..all I can say is that it was the honestly the best fish and chips I have ever eaten! Everything was cooked and prepared fresh..almost in front of you depending on where you sit! The fish was succulent and tasted really nice (although not to sure what kind of fish it was)..the chips were a nice size - not too fat or thin and served with tarter sauce (which the others loved!)

We also highly recommend the 'fresh lemonade' drink! Very colourful and refreshing!

The service we received was great and on point so no complaints there!

If you're looking for a meal that isn't meat, consider The Big Fish on Andrassy Ut. It operates like a fish market in that you walk up with your server to choose what you want to eat. Keep in mind it's not inexpensive but the quality is very good and the service was outstanding.

We walked by this place one day (it's on a main street in Budapest), and decided to try for dinner. We liked it so much we went back the next night. This is the only restaurant review I'm doing for the trip as it's the only place I'd recommend.

As for the prices, I cannot comment on other types of fish (someone here previously mentioned scallops), but my meal of salmon steak, two salads, and an order of french fries was about 18 euros.

unlogical table allocationt, means most of the tables for 6 pax ,which means not all of them can use profitable as they are never full.
no need so much place for the waiters as it is.
outside tables give a poor, camping feeling and not compatible with inside design.
food are really small portion for huge amount at the end, and was 80% of the ordered grill food cold when arrived.
wine service was confused, althought we clearly asked 0,1 l to taste different wines.
seems this is quite deliberately being, at the and just the invoice a bigger suprise.(negative)
bad experience.
