    Mussels were sandy. Waiters wanted to take our food before finishing is. That was really irritating to be honest.... Pak Choy is a beautiful idea as a side dish for seafood, especially the was you guys did.

    As a seafood lover, this place was like being a kid in a sweet shop again. You go to the counter and pick from a selection of beautiful fresh fish, which comes back cooked simply and perfectly. This was by far the best meal I had in Budapest. Some reviews here are complaining about the price, these are the people who don’t understand quality. You will pay a bit more than your other meals in Budapest but it’s worth every penny.

    The food was great. The prices though were extremely exaggerated for the city of Budapest. I’ve never paid 10 pounds per Shrimp 🍤 even in London. There was nothing special though about the restaurant design and some of the waiters were unfriendly especially to LGBT people unfortunately.

    The food is good but it's way too expensive for what it is. Pricing set up so that you're not sure what you've spent. Canteen style space with really poor service adds to sense you're overpaying.

    I find it funny for a restaurant like Big fish that is to consider a gourmet restaurant with high prices, high quality and to consider that service charge is applied on the bill and then you see that you have been charged 450 ft for bread for a bill of 53k ft :) it makes not more than smile.

    We had beautifully cooked seabass and salmon with fries and a nicely dressed salad. The mussels we shared to start were a little over cooked. It wasn’t busy at all when most restaurants are fully booked as this is an expensive restaurant for a bistro style in Budapest. Fish is difficult to buy and find in restaurants here so as pescatarians this is somewhere we always visit on our trips. Just order your food and drink at the counter. They should decorate it so it feels more like an upmarket restaurant. Candles on the table at night perhaps.
