Placed on the shore of the Ruhr-River, there is a nice terrace for summer days. A lot of space and natural light in the restaurant. Very friendly and helpful stuff. The dishes are fine and well prepared. Wide choise of the meals from the mediterranian cuisine, large and good wine list. Try the greek one they recommend - really tasty!... More

Although the restaurant positions itself way above average Essen restaurant and attracts wealthy Germans, we were very disappointed during our visit in May. The service you'll get will feel like waiters give you huge favor. We had to ask for child seat, although it was clear that 1 yo baby cannot seat on its own. The waiter could not even... More

We've been here twice in the last month. The food is of high quality and the service is friendly and accommodating. We had mixed appetizers that came out tapas style, every small plate was delicious and we finished them all. Mains were also delicious and well presented. Definitely a must in Essen. Ask for a table on the back terrace.... More

Nice location, next to the lake. When the weather good is, you can sit outside under the sky... the chef's creations are really delicious, the dishes well-balanced. Very good wine list, especially the "Vivlia Chora" white wine! The desserts are o.k., the prices fair

After a slow start and not having enough menu cards we ordered several appetizers instead of main. Very good food and enjoyed the lake view. Payment can only be done by cash or some type of local card which is silly. Having numerous cards and not being able to pay is annoying, should at least accept Mastercard, Visa and Maestro..

In this Greek restaurant at the Baldeny lake you have a real holiday feeling. Although it is in town you feel like vein in the country side with a nice view to the lake. The great food adds to the experience. We visited the restaurant with a group of 25 people and are perfectly serviced although the restaurant was fully... More

This restaurant could definitely not be categorized as a vegan restaurant and their standard menu does not have vegan options. Nevertheless, it is very good and if you simply tell them that you would like them to create something that is vegan and yummy, they will suddenly be in their element. Great experience!

We went here as a larger party for a business dinner. First impression was that the atmosphere was contemporary, clean and inviting. We sat out on the covered/enclosed patio (with "mushroom" heaters). I'm sure the outdoor seating and the view of the water would be much nicer during warmer weather. The food was excellent...we had a several course plated appetizers... More
