We went here during our vacation. We had a very good steak. But unfortunately the French fries and bearnaise sauce were not at the same level. When this is said, I can really recommend this restaurant if you want a very good steakMore

Best eye fillet I’ve had in a long time and would have paid much more! Prices v reasonable. Truffle mash also great. Service personable and prompt. They had an amazing live Hungarian string quartet playing too. Definitely recommend.

This is where breakfast is served for Hotel Kempinski and it was wonderful. So many choices and fresh squeezed juices. We ate there for lunch one day and had the duck and goat cheese burger. To die for. Still craving it.More

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.
