A buffet chain with six restaurants dotted around the city, good food and highly appealing prices
All You Can Eat, Woo Hoo!
A trophy indeed for hungry visitors on a budget, Trófea has six locations throughout Budapest (including two which are especially central, at Margit Bridge and Király Utca 30-32). It is open for lunch and dinner with a buffet-style all-you-can-eat (unlimited drinks of most kinds, as well), plus a grill where they'll cook up a variety of meats for you on the spot. You're allowed two hours at lunchtime and three at dinner, with weekday lunch costing 3,900 forints and dinner 5,500; Friday night and weekends it's 6,000 (for kids under age 12, half price on weekdays, free on weekends). The fare is hearty Magyar soul food (try the Burgundy venison and the paprika mutton stew will have you bleating!), while at dinner they also throw in some traditional live folk performances.
