Went there for tappas dinner with a friend who'd been there before. We asked them for a the special tapas menu. They asked if we had any food alergies, things to avoid and after this "check" - the adventure started. Wonderful service, outstanding food. Definitely a place to recommend to others hands down.

Head chef Sacha and his staff were very attentive and we left the food selection to him. .......and each course from tuna tartar, zander with black pudding, lobster with pack choi, veal with caramelised onion and celeriac puree to the chocolate fondant desert were wonderfully cooked...

My husband and I have recently moved from the UK to Essen and we think we have found a gem in this restaurant and its staff. We had booked a table for an early dinner on a Saturday evening and were the restaurants first customers of the night. We were greeted warmly by the chef who once he realised our... More

We had a fish tapas and a meat tapas here. Food was okay, though some parts of the meat dishes were a bit on the fatty side, but not really a problem. The main issue was that one the waitresses bothered us every 3 minutes with questions, adding wine to glasses, reorganising dishes and so forth. Truely annoying! Another waitress... More

I really used to love Tapas but having revisited Spain again last year I realised it was really not very healthy food and was somewhat put off... so I was pleasantly surprised to find Bliss. They serve really tasty and healthy Tapas with the Chef's own twist, really fabulous and highly recommend it. Not only is the food fab but... More

Went here last year with my boyfriend. We had a fourse course dinner for €35. And got an amuse extra from the house. The quality and the proportions were big. The 'pastinaaksoep' was really special and delicious. Very nice flavour. The steak was not rare medium, but we got a really big piece. We were so full that the dessert... More
