We got this leaflet in front of one of the tourist sights in Budapest. I don´t like people plying things when I´m on a holiday. But I´m really glad we decided to try this restaurant. There were a pianist, (not very good though), playing the whole time we were there. It made the athmosphere nice and smooth. The service was excellent. She made us feel we are special, although the restaurant was full of people and she was busy. The food was fresh and delicious. There were plenty of choices to choose from and a great cook who was ready to make me a perfect stake, fish and chicken. And non-alcoholic drinks, wine, beer and champagne included the price which was about 15e/person. I can easily recommend this place. We had a great evening!

Let me start with the positives....Really good selection of food with all you can drink beer, wine, champagne, etc is almost impossible to find and that too for approx. $25 becomes one of the best deals you could ask for. They should definitely open more branches!
Since I was there till closing (midnight), I noticed a difference in service in the last 30-40 mins. Apart from slowing down service for alcohol that a friend was trying to order, it took them a good 20 mins plus to get me a bottle of water after having to remind them thrice.
While such hiccups leave a bad taste, I had no complaints earlier in the night and therefore let my disappointment reflect in the tip I offered rather than in the review of the place. It might have been an isolated incident but if the management keeps an eye out, it can be avoided and would ensure other travelers like me take home one great experience they can't forget.

Right, let's give you some context. I love food. And I love all you can eat restaurants. I like variety. But I also appreciate quality. And Trofea has a good balance of the two.
It has a great cook to order counter as well as a very substantial array of ready cooked options, cold meats and salads.
Unlike many all you can eats, it also has a brilliant selection of desserts. Brucey bonus! Oh and did I mention all your coke, wine, beer and champagne was all part of the price.
Happy days!

This has got to be the best deal in Budapest. All you can eat and drink for 5599 Huf or just under 16 UK pds. What surprised us was that it is a real classy restaurant not what we expected. From the moment we arrived until we left the staff were very welcoming and attentive. The food at the buffet was excellent with plenty of choice to suit most. We only visited once but I agree with another reviewer that we could have just went here on the other nights of our trip so good was it. Thoroughly recommend this restaurant. There are another two locations in Budapest I believe which means you should be near one.

We visited this restaurant on October 30th. On arriving we met this female hostess who was very annoying in her questions. She kept on asking is where we heard about the restaurant and if we had gotten a flyer. We did tell her we got a flyer but couldn't remember where it was handed to us. She insisted on repeating herself over and over in a very irritated tone. This was so irritating to us.
Selection of food was not as expected as in the US were are accustomed to huge lavish buffets depending on location. Our drinks were topped up promptly and food was excellent.
Minus that hostess I would have given this place an A
