We had been siteseeing in the area and were in need of some food and a drink. There isn't much else around here so we decided to go in. The decor of the place is more suited to a night time drinking place but maybe...it is on a night. It was lunchtime and the place was busy. You get your food from the self serve area and weigh it to be charged. Think we paid about £4/5. I had the breaded fish and chicken, both of which were very dry and a goulash type dish with rice, which looked awful but was very tasty. The bar wasn't open so we could only get soft drinks from the fridge. Wish we had of kept on walking and found a nicer place.More

I came bv for lunch - stumbled on to it and was pleasantly impressed. A wide variety of food, including fish and chicken, and salads and desserts were there to be self served. Efficient check out clerks weighed your food and accepted credit cards. Beer...and other non-alcoholic beverages were available. Lots of seating places, often on high chairs. Some offered good views of the river and Buda. The place was clean, the food was tasty.More

This self-serve restaurant (Cafeteria style) offer us a nice range of meats, soups, potatoes, vegetables and combination dishes along with a salad bar and dessert. You paid by the weight. I suggest that you “tour“ the selection before making your choice as it is easy...to fill up your plate and then wish you would’ve added something else. The Lady at the cash register was exceedingly nice and helpful even though her English was limited. She really went out of her way to make sure that my needs were met. I had some sort of pea, celery, potato and perogy soup that was delicious! Additionally, I had some other items including a breast of chicken that was tender and flavorful. The desserts were also tasty. I chose 2 warm options that were local specialties. It was a great lunch at a very modest price and would be suitable for those who don’t speak the language and would be unsure what to order from a menu. Also perfect for families with kids who could just point to what they like. It is close to the Parliament buildings so would be a great place to go to lunch before or after seeing the site. In the evenings it is a bar that looks like it caters to young people as the tables are either high or stand up “cruiser and “tables. However, for lunch it works well. I am not sure if they’re open at dinner time but if they are it would also be suitable for an evening meal followed by walk in the neighborhood.More

I've had lunch today in this self service. It is quite near the Parliament, so it can be useful after or before visiting it. The food is varied: you can choose among many types of salads, main courses (meat or fish), side dishes and cakes....Mainly traditional cuisine, but also international food. I chose fried fish with vagetables. The fried fish was soft, light and not oiled. The location is spacious, with air conditioned and clean. Not expensive. Absolutely suggested while visiting this part of the town.More

I visited this self-service place after couple of years; it still offers a great variety of tasty international food for a reasonable price. The only change is interior: since the restaurant serves as a drinking bar in the evening, the chairs and tables are higher...than usual, this not add to the comfortability of eating, otherwise is OK.More

This is a self-service restaurant where you get a huge selection of various delicious Hungarian specialties and other foods. I have been here several times and enjoy it every time. I have not enjoyed their desserts as much so I would focus on the soups,...entrees, sides and salads. The place caters to many locals for lunch so it can get very crowded at noon. If you go a bit earlier, you'll have a good chance of having your pick of seats. You go to the back, take a tray in the back right, and then proceed to the various sections to get food. Food is priced by weight although on occasion (especially with meats) there may be an add-on charge. It may be worth going around first to see what's available before you start adding things to your plate. There are so many good options that you may fill up your plate quicker than you had hoped. Drinks are separate, you can pick up a bottle near the cash register. Note that sadly they do charge 300Ft for use of the restroom. If I didn't like their food so much, I'd take off a point for it, but the food is so good that I'm willing to forgive them.More

This is a buffet style place near the Chain Bridge and the Gresham Palace. Food is sold by weight. My wife and I visit once every few weeks. For the two of us, it runs about 4500 - 5000 forint including drinks and dessert. FozelakFalu...is cheaper, but the food quality here is better. If we have a complaint, it would be that the menu doesn't seem to change much and they have the same things. Usually the food is good. We had one time where it wasn't so great. It's close to where we live which is why we go. In the 5th district, there are many Etkezde's that serve a "lunch menu" or fixed price lunch. Even some of the nicer restaurants in the area will offer this. This place mostly attracts workers from the area and the occasional tourist.More

Two of us visited, cost only £30 between us, which included bottles of water and 2 course meals. Buffet style, and every thing costs by weight which enables you to try a bit of everything! Situated at the top of vaci st and by the...chain bridge, so fairly central. Worth visiting as you're walking through.More
