Located on Queen street in the Campbelltown CBD, it was not hard to find. The only problem was there was no... read more

I used to live around the corner and would visit here frequently with friends - after moving to St Helens Park, I now drive all the way back to enjoy a quick meal or dinner with friends - worth the trip. Say hi to Wilma !

Whilst I was attending a doctors appointment my Wife went for lunch at Essen. We have both been many times for lunch and dinner. Upon arrival my wife requested, if possible, a Chicken Boscaiola with fettucine for myself so that after my appointment I could take it home. Even though it was lunch and the Boscaiola is a dinner item... More

Having seen a few reviews on trip advisor, I've now eaten at Essen many times. The food is really good - I've never had a dud meal there. The staff are friendly and the atmosphere is warm and cosy

I booked this restaurant at short notice for a large group of us working locally and the staff gladly booked us in and made sure our table was ready even at short notice. The menu has a massive array of choices which suited everyone in our group and the food was reasonably priced and delicious. Definitely a recommended option if... More

A large group of us had dinner at the restaurant last night. Despite the very short notice, the staff were very accommodating to our needs. The manager, Wilma, was great as well. Would definitely visit there again!

Made my second visit to Essen and wasn't disappointed. Took my adult sons and my 3 year old and they all loved the food. Service was impeccable and my 3 year old was once again accommodated for. All of our dishes arrived hot and fresh and in good time. My 3 year old doesn't eat chips and so the staff... More
