“Brilliant value and very good quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

After having visited several special restaurants, we were on the lookout for a simple self-service, and saw Trofea through Google. Trofea is a small chain with 3 different restaurants, out of which the location at Margit Bridge gets the best reviews. We couldn't agree more. You reach it by taking tram 4 or 6, get out at Margit bridge and cross the street.
The staff is very friendly and attentive, constantly removing empty dishes and making sure you have drinks.
Here is the link:
http://www.trofeagrill.com/index_eng.php

Not only do they have a very good starters buffet with fish, sushi, meats, goose liver, various salads (our favourite was green salad with fresh strawberry and blue cheese) and more, there is also an extensive hot buffet counter with (when we were there) braised cow cheek, venison, delicious duck legs with the meat falling off the bone, and much more.
Side dishes include breads, rice, pasta, potatoes, plenty of condiments and sauces.
Plus - a section in the restaurant where you can select various fish and meat pieces (all marinated or spiced differently), which the chef then cooks for you on his grill plate, after which you pick them up.
And on top of that - all beer, wine and a selection of non-alcoholic drinks are included in the price. We were offered a glass of Hungarian champagne and were given a whole bottle. Same for the red wine - a glass became a carafe.
You cannot beat that value anywhere in Budapest.
It was so good that we went back the next evening.....and stuffed ourselves wit high-quality food once more.

Make sure you make a reservation if you go in the weekend though....

“Eat as much as you can for reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

We had a late lunch at this place with my family on a Saturday afternoon. It turned out that children under age 14 eat and drink for free. Though the price for a person cost HUF 5500 (about EUR 18) it was worth the investment. The food was excellent and the service, as well. Even vegetarians can find delicious dishes. You can pay by credit card.

“All you can eat close to the Margit bridge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

All you can eat style in very stylish spacey restaurant right at the bank of the river. Staff was very helpful (especially the charming lady at the entrance which will walk you to your table :-))

Food variety is very wide, including some of the traditional Hungarian meals, salads, olives ...

Hungarian beer ok, provided white wine no to much. bud you can buy a bottle for a good price.

Very very reasonable price for 3 hours of stay (dinner), 2 hours (lunch time)
