“When can we go again ??”
Reviewed 11 February 2013

Two visits recently, one with a large party and one for my birthday celebration. On both occasions the food was oustanding, service great and the surroundings delightful. But the thing I personally adore about this restaurant is the imagination when it comes to vegetarian food - no boring old vegetable lasagne here!! The prices are not cheap, but we feel it is worth it for such delicious food. Can't wait for an excuse to visit again. Oh, and my daughter is seriously considering holding her wedding reception here in the summer.

“Dinning at Essence”
Reviewed 24 January 2013

We didn't expect to have any great meal in Britain in our business travel, but Essence has plenty satisfied our taste of Mediterranean gourmets, letting we forget for a while we were in a business trip.
Confortable place, great service, warm welcome and excelent cuisine. I'm sure we will return here.
