The staff was very friendly. The place was neat. Went during busy dinner time. I had reserved a table for two. The variety in menu was good. We chose steak and the fisherman's basket. The food was absolutely fabulous. The price was bit expensive but was ok for a fine dining restaurant. All in all a great find. Will definitely... More

Visited here for my Grandsons birthday lunch. The food was excellent and portion sizes quite large. The alcoholic drinks were reasonably priced. Service was fast. I would definitely recommend.

Had dinner with 2 others on a business trip. Stayed at the hotel there. Food are nice, but bit small in portion (see the pics). Friendly staff and excellent service. Hot breakfast also great to start the day.

I had the beef croquette for my entree which was nice but I wasn't too fussed on it. I then had linguine with pumpkin and basil plus chicken. They could of done without the Pumpkin but it was delicious. Especially the chicken, it just melted in the mouth. This was my second time back and was not a disappointment

Essens always has great food, and even better service. Wilma & her staff will look after you well & ensure you have time to choose from the menu and enjoy a nice drink either from the bar or the coffee machine. You never feel like you have to move on as they don't hurry you & the menu to choose... More

Cafe Essen is centrally situated in Queen Street, old Campbelltown not far from the railway station in a free standing building, not a shopping plaza. It opens Monday-Saturday. The menu encompasses lots of inexpensive breakfast items and lunch options, when open from 10 a.m.-3p.m. and is open again from 5p.m.- 10 p.m. for dinner. It is licensed. Service is excellent...

Decided to call in for a late lunch with friends. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the menu was great. Our food arrived in a relative short period of time and it was absolutely delicious and filling. It was great that we could sit there after the meal and chat without having staff trying to usher us out.... More
