We visited Bliss last night for what turned out to be an excellent meal. Head chef Sacha and his staff were very attentive and we left the food selection to him. .......and each course from tuna tartar, zander with black pudding, lobster with pack choi, veal with caramelised onion and celeriac puree to the chocolate fondant desert were wonderfully cooked...

My husband and I have recently moved from the UK to Essen and we think we have found a gem in this restaurant and its staff. We had booked a table for an early dinner on a Saturday evening and were the restaurants first customers of the night. We were greeted warmly by the chef who once he realised our... More

Went here last year with my boyfriend. We had a fourse course dinner for €35. And got an amuse extra from the house. The quality and the proportions were big. The 'pastinaaksoep' was really special and delicious. Very nice flavour. The steak was not rare medium, but we got a really big piece. We were so full that the dessert... More
