Very rude member of staff refused entry for some reason. You clearly need to make an effort to be well presented for this cheap buffet. Bizarre experience. Stay away.

The Buffet do Leao is a fixed price eat as much as you want. Centrally positioned in Lisbon near Rossio train station.

It has a good choice of, especially roasted meat and salads. 8.99 Euro each so excellent value for money.

Very fresh food and very clean restaurant. Helpful, friendly staff.
Can get very busy, but with fairly quick turnover.

Go if you like an all you can eat buffet, serving unassuming fare with a hint of local cuisine. It's the kind of place you'd go to if it were in your home town.
Avoid if you dislike people getting into your personal space or if you drink more than you eat, since drinks are extra.

Went to this buffet 1st day wandering Lisbon. Tons of people and so we went in. Plenty to choose from, Salads, carved meat, soups, and I can tell the locals go there. Very reasonable in price, you sit at long tables and waiters bring drinks...fun experience

We went here after finding our previous choice had closed down. What a find. A simple place of relatively small proportions for a buffet restaurant but very efficient indeed and with good service.
Excellent value for money when you compare the range and quality of the salads against the price (€8.90).
And four variants of meat on offer all delectably cooked on the spit roast besides fish and a traditional Portuguese dish of meat and beans with peas.
If there was one item for criticism it would be the toilets which needed more regular attention.
