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.

Dinner was arranged by Avalon Waterways Cruise. Started by Hungarian wine tasting and regional history. Appetizers were great. We had musical group playing local tunes. Dinner was excellent with local wines. We even enjoyed the desert.

Nice and cosy place in Budapest main street where you can find both typical Hungarian dishes and international dishes.
I choose a goulash soup and a salad with Soproni beer as a drink.
The staff is very kind and speaks a fluent English, which help us in interacting with them asking dishes characteristics and other things.
It definitely worth a visit!

Our first meal in Budapest and we were very impressed with the variety, quality and price of the food. We were sat in a comfortable booth and the staff spoke excellent English. There was one Keto and one vegetarian in our party. The vegetarian managed to put together a meal from the sides as most dishes included fish or meat. All in all a great meal but perhaps the chef could look at a vegetarian main course for the future.

The restaurant has a neat atmosphere and a great selection — I had the venison with pumpkin purée and walnut gnocchi — would go back.

Christmas Eve, forced to have a set menu. My wife is a vegetarian and there was no option so we ended up paying a ridiculous amount for a plain pasta for her. Unlikely to go back after that experience. The service was good.

Dear Nick1313,

Thank you very much for taking the time to leave us a feedback. On Christmas Eve, most of the elegant restaurants are offering set menus. This set menu usually has the concept of the restaurant. In our case, the masterpieces of the Viennese-Hungarian cuisine and grill. We recommend to our guests to get informed about the menu served before booking.
We hope we will have the chance to welcome you back and impress you with our superb dishes.
Best regards,
Norbert Kőrösi, Restaurant manager
