Ok, this is not a bad place to visit, relaxing atmosphere ( dogs allowed) good service, pleasant for the wallet, but... i think that the chef is trying to be something he ain't. Nicely plated with style, but the flavours just dont match! Some times underseasoned and some times a little to much salt. To conclude; for the price we northerners usually pay for a 6 gourse dinner, not bad! For the tastebuds, not perfect... 4/6

We had one of the best meals ever at Essence. We were tempted in by the imaginative menu, which way exceeded our expectations. The charming Czech waitress spoke lovely English and guided us through the local wines. The food cooked by the chef/owner was from fresh local produce and world-class. The bill was reasonable and the crowning glory was to meet the chef at our table to discuss his work and thank him for a feast of flavours.
This gem of a restaurant is 2 minutes from Lipanska tram stop, just 4 stops from Wenceslas Sq on Tram 9. We were delighted to turn up and get a table, but it is so good that it should be full every night.

We came to the restaurant really Late in the evening, yet the service was outstanding and the food absolutely delicious. Had a 3 course dinner with steak and fish and couldn't have been any better. Thank you for the perfect evening!

Excellent food, great service, this restaurant deserves to be overbooked! Where can you find a 6 course diner for €40,- incl wines?

When i walked in I've seen two things.. gorgeous interior and beautiful little waitress(I wish I knew her name) which was very kind to seat me I judge to a best table there and recommended delicious wine. Had carpacio for starter and quite the steak for main course..both smashing..especially the steak which was probably one of the best I've ever had ... definitely going there again!
