ÉS Bisztró is a casual Hungarian-Viennese bistro and steakhouse in the heart of Budapest. Breaking with traditional restaurant routine, ÉS offers a more laid-back experience to enjoy wine, beer and nibbles while chatting away. Aside from classic Hungarian and Viennese dishes, we also grill meats and fish, and you can even savour one of Budapest’s best burgers at ÉS. This carefully curated menu of monarchy-inspired meals, extraordinary grills and ÉS specialities comes complete with a spectacular selection of wines and artisan beers. Sundays see Family Table – not brunch, because at ÉS even brunch is something special!
ÉS is a lot of combos. Steak & Burger. Stew & Wiener Schnitzel. Salads & Crispy Pancetta. Come in the Day & Come in the Night. With Family & With Friends.
ÉS connects pedestrianised Deák Ferenc street to unique gastronomical experiences.
Locals & Visitors. Hungarians & Foreigners. Fish & Meat. Beef & Pork. Pest & Buda. Dog & Cat. Hip-hop & Metal. Mozart & Beethoven. iOS & Android. Rocky & Rambo. Facebook & Twitter. Picasso & Rubens. Cure & Depeche.
Why would it have to be EITHER/OR when it can also be & (ÉS)?!
ÉS Bisztró is co-managed by Kempinski Hotel Corvinus Budapest and the Zsidai Group. It was established in 2013 to bring together the values and gastronomical experience of Kempinski and the Zsidai family and leave yet another mark on the Budapest culinary scene.
Under the auspices of executive chef Vernon Strachan and head chef Géza Kónya, ÉS provides a 360° gastronomical experience, which you can share with friends as well as business partners.
The menu changes twice a year, while ÉS serves seasonal specials fortnightly.
Sunday Family Table
ÉS Bisztró serves Budapest’s best Sunday lunch, which we call Family Table. We serve you at your table, and the experience features live music and children’s craft activities. The price includes complimentary parking, wine and sparkling wine and soft drinks. We safekeep personalised French Laguiole knives, with their names engraved, for our regulars.
And it isn’t only on Sundays that we bear children in mind: we prepare a children’s menu every day.
In summers, we grow our own herbs on the rooftop of Kempinski Corvinus. We harvest the freshest basil, mint, thyme, rosemary and sage, amongst loads of others.
ÉS TOO is ÉS Bisztró’s answer to private or corporate parties. This tastefully appointed function room seats up to 50 people, while receptions can comfortably accommodate up to 100 people. Hungary’s leading C-suite magazine, Forbes held its events at ÉS in 2016. For more intimate affairs or team-building events, our chef’s table, seating ten people, is ideal for bringing groups together.
ÉS Bisztró Terasz
One of the biggest outdoors terraces, ÉS’s iconic two-storey terrace is open all year round, seating up to 120 people, in breezy Deák Ferenc utca (aka Fashion Street), sheltered from street traffic. In summer, it is available from the end of March through to the end of October, while in winter, it is functional from the first Sunday of Advent through to the first week of January. At this time, ÉS Terrace serves sweet and savoury pancakes, Tafelspitz sandwiches, hot dogs, mulled wine, winter cocktails and hot teas.
