Fantastic food and value

The food here is full of flavor and all meals were generous in size and value for money. The staff were friendly and attentive. My 3 year old was provided with a small fork and children's plate which doesn't happen anywhere else we've been. I will definitely be going back again and again.

We had been here twice before and love the food...and the service & atmosphere is great. Based on this we decided to hold our son's 18th birthday party upstairs. From the get-go Jess and her staff were fabulous. They catered for our 2 major food allergies without a fuss. They made suggestions about menu changes to cater for those allergies... More

I had a very enjoyable lunch (Friday) with a friens. The meal was wonderful (chicken snitzel)and it only cost $12.00. Both of us were made to feel very welcome by the staff and they looked after us well. I would recommend Essens to family and friends.
