Whether you’re a solo backpacker or here on a stag weekend, no trip to Budapest is complete without a night at an all-you-can-eat/all-you-can-drink restaurant!
It’s the perfect way to combine food and partying, but beware- not all of these places are worth the money. Here’s a quick guide to make sure you get the best food and, more importantly, the most booze out of your trip!
With three locations near the city centre, Trofea Grill is one of the most popular all-you-can-eat/all-you-can-drink restaurants in Budapest. With a huge selection of Hungarian and international food (including a fresh grill station) and an unlimited supply of beer, wine, and champagne, you’ll definitely walk out smiling and staggering. The lunch menu lasts for 2 hours, and dinner is 3. If you’re looking for a feast and some pre-party drinks, head to the Trofea on Kiraly Utca- it’s only a 5 minute walk from the biggest ruin bars and clubs in the city! If you want the best value for money, check out their restaurant in the 13th district- it’s the only one with all-you-can-drink cocktails!
If you’re a pasta lover, look no further. Ape Regina is not only one of the best Italian restaurants in the city, it’s also one of the best all-you-can-eat/all-you-can-drink places! Fresh made-to-order pizza and pasta, delicious desserts, and an endless flow of beer and wine add up to a fun (and sloppy) night out for any group of hungry travellers. The lunch menu lasts for 2 hours, and dinner lasts 3 hours with an extended menu. Remember, Saturday and Sunday are more expensive, and if you’re a big group (8+), make sure you book a few days in advance as tables fill up quickly!
A personal favourite spot amongst the Partybookers Budapest staff, Itoshii is must for any sushi lovers out there. Located right next to the famous Nyugati train station, a lunch special at Itoshii includes 2.5 hours of unlimited food, beer, wine, and soft drinks. The best part is that you don’t even have to get up from your table! Just place your order on one of the tablets provided and watch the food and drink roll out. If you’re not really a sushi lover, don’t worry- there’s plenty more on the menu than just fish! Monday and Tuesdays are the cheapest days, and make sure you book early on weekends!
Feeling a little fancy? Why not go for an all-you-can-eat brunch at the historic Corinthia Hotel, one of the most luxurious 5 star hotels in Budapest! Every Sunday, from 12pm-4pm, enjoy some of the finest dining in the city with a huge selection of food from Hungary and all over the world! And of course, all-you-can-drink champagne, beer, and wine! From steak to chocolate fountains, foie gras to creme brulee, and everything else in between, you’ll never feel fancier or more spoiled whilst also getting absolutely wasted. Be warned though- you need to book early, dress nicely and, most importantly, behave! This is 5 star luxury after all.
