We had a wonderful evening at Essencia, the service was excellent and so was the food. They have an extensive menu to chose the most delicious vegetarian dishes from and serve great wines from the Douro Region.

The food is very nice, however, the waiting time was quite long and by the time they delivered I was so hungry that I ate everything in one sitting. We had a show to attend at Casa da Música, so we were stressing a bit over that. But the staff is really friendly and attentive.

This was a very nice restaurant, with very attentive service from our waitress. The only thing that was not perfect is the location of the restaurant, quite far away from the central parts of town.

Essência is a wonderful place to eat in Porto. The food is delicious and very reasonably priced, plus all our dietary needs were catered for. Our party included vegan, vegetarian and meat/fish eaters. The only problem was choosing what to eat! All delicious!
The service is excellent and we had a lovely evening.

We were really looking forward to our valentine's meal here but the main meal was cold, the whole service was rushed ( amuse Bouche, starters, main meal) were all out within 35minutes! The main meal was cold and I had to send it back. It is unfortunate as the staff seem really attentive and proud of their establishment. What seemed an interesting menu lacked the substance.
