Description: Az ÉS egy laza magyar vendéglő és pecsenyesütöde, ahol a hagyományos éttermi formai megkötésektől mentesen is jól érezheted magad sörözés, borozás, beszélgetés közben falatozgatva. A klasszikus magyar fogások mellett izgalmas falatozós ételeket alkottunk, emellett húsokat, halakat grillezünk. A már ismert monarchiabeli ételek, különleges grillek ÉS falatok mellett izgalmas bor- ÉS kézműves sörválaszték vár. ***Wine bar, beer pub, terrace, bistro, restaurant, brasserie. In ÉS you don’t need to have traditional dishes and follow dining traditions. The menu has three separate parts: nibbles to share, typical dishes of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy and grilled meat and fish. A unique, unconventional wine and beer selection rounds off this delicious gastro experience. Breaking with the formality of dining traditions, i.e., the sequence of starter, main course and dessert, guests can have nibbles while enjoying a glass of wine or beer. Night and day. With friends and family.

“Introduction To Hungarian Cuisine”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

I had dinner here in early December 2013. The restaurant was not terribly busy, and the service was cordial, un-rushed and generally good. There is a nice selection of wines - I ordered a bottle of Hungarian-produced red that was rich and full-bodied. I also ordered a starter of goulash soup, and a main of ravioli with sauteed mushrooms and locally produced curd cheese - it was delicious with a buttery, nutty flavor and perfectly prepared. The meal was medium cost by Budapest standards. I can recommend this place for a weary traveler looking for a hearty meal on a cold night.

“Completely satisfying!”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

A contemporary styled bistro/restaurant with excellent wine selection, food and service. The staff are friendly. We had the rump steak with truffle mash and grilled season vegetables. Enjoy quality food in a relaxed atmosphere.

Reviewed November 23, 2013

We stayed at Kempinski Hotel, that is why it was easy for us to dine at ES.
Good beef tartar, duck-lever burger, spare-ribs.
Good lunch place.

“Trendy, good food”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

We were with a group of 5 friends at lunchtime. A rather new but very nice restaurant. Staff is very friendly, we had very good food. The setting is very hip amd trendy and seems to cater to businesspeople (possibly given its location in the Kandinski hotel), which is a quality label too. Definetely recommend it

“Breakfast was very good”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

Only had the breakfast due to the fact that we were staying at the Kempinski and it's in the Kempinski. But very nice spread!
