There are about 5 Trofea restaurant in Budapest and I believe they all have small differences.

The concept is the same everywhere: 5,500 HUF ($24) for a dinner Monday to Thursday, $2 more on weekends and about $6 less for lunch. This includes ALL you can eat and drink. The drink selection has wine, beer, soft drinks for free and different wines & hard spirits for additional payment.

The Trofea on Margit Korut, at the exit of the bridge on the Buda side has a live pianist and a grilling station where they cook in front of you a large selection of pork, chicken, turkey and fish. I understand not all of them feature these two pluses.

Now if you wish to eat beef, it is only as a stew, nothing to grill, this is why I didn't put 5 stars. Other buffet meats include duck, beef. pork, chicken, beef cheek, fish but they are drowned in sauce (except the duck).

If you celebrate something it is better to let them know before you arrive but they accommodated our last minute request graciously. The waiters were very nice.

All the restaurants are clean, waiters attentive and food is good. Found it to be expensive, not for average pocketbook for a family since you can eat well for much less in good restaurants elsewhere.

Thank Lajosne B

This is the most varied and freshest buffet I have seen in a long time. It contained various cold appetizers including Fois Gras and Steak Tartare, a nice salad bar, different hot dishes such as roasted duck and venison stew, prepared vegetable dishes, a choise of marinated seafood and meats to be prepared on the order and not to forget an assoertment of cakes, ice cream and other desserts.
The staff was very friendly and attentive, and to bring it all together, they had a very skilled pianist with a playlist to my liking (soundtracks, The Beatles, Elton John etc.) They price is really reasonable so there's no excuse not to go. By the way - they have 3 restaurants in Budapest.
