Friendly staff as soon as we entered. I ordered an Essen Beef Burger with the Lot. It came out on a cute platter board and it tasted absolutely delicious and very filling. I then ordered a Baked Gaytime which was so amazing, that I wish there was more of it on the plate. Definitely worth the value which you're looking... More

Visited Essen with a group just before Christmas, 2015. A number of our people were running late but that didn't seem to worry the staff. The food is varied and would suit most people's tastes. Servings are large and everyone at our table enjoyed their dinner. Service was friendly and helpful. Happy to return here.

We visited Essen on a Sunday for lunch with three generations. The kids enjoyed their schnitzel and mushroom pasta and the adults and Pop enjoyed the wide range of german beers. Our schnitzels and pork knuckle were very good. Service was friendly and we finished off with the apple strudel and a chocolate and hazelnut strudel. We will be going... More
