Location and contact

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!

Went last night and I’d like to start by saying the staff are great. Really happy and helpful. They offer food in a ice counter and you pay by the weight. My first gripe is that I choose a whole sea bass and it weighed...More

Food was okay can’t say it is fresh. but the price wasn’t that friendly. Service was fairly good. Would recommend putting a menu on table.

While I am not a fan of bistro-style eating (especially not the order-at -the-couter-before-you-sit-down part) this was a pleasant experience. The food was fresh, tasty and delicious, service quick and friendly. Prices are OK, not cheap, but worth the food. Try the Prosecco!

Heard about this place from a friend, and must say this was really good. I ordered grilled calamari and tiger prawns, which were scrumptious. Highly recommend it ! Must try.

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 €.
