“Highly recommend - my favourite restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

Always excellent freshly prepared food. This chef and his team prepare seasonal dishes that are excellently prepared and presented. There are not many places here that serve fresh seasonal vegetables with main courses but this one does. The whole menu is fabulous, wonderfully cooked steaks and lamb and the fish dishes are superb! Excellent service and section of wines.

“Of the best Italian restaurants outside Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

Essenza truly is a hidden gem, hidden away on the narrow rue de la boucherie, in city center Luxembourg.
We are generally spoilt for choice in Luxembourg for Italian restaurants, with many of the best located outside town. Essenza is, for me, the best in the city. The 'fish carpaccio' is absolutely delicious and are every dish I've had there. Highly recommended.
