Excellent since I walked in until I left the place. The vegetarian “alheira” was delicious, the beetroot risotto was excellent and the Essência fudge cake was to die for. Lovely atmosphere and very reasonable price/quality. I will be back. Obrigado!

A lovely restaurant with great vegetarian dishes. The service was very friendly also. Would certainly go back! Only thing is it’s a bit far from the centre of Porto so there are no bars etc nearby, but it wasn’t far from the Metro station.

We had a fabulous meal at this vegetarian restaurant who also offered meat and fish options. We all decided to have the vegetarian option and were not disappointed, they were beautifully cooked and well presented. The deserts we chose were also delicious! Thank you

My daughter went to Essencia last fall when she was visiting Porto and said it was one of the best meals of her trip to Portugal. She was right! I am a vegetarian, and was delighted to discover this restaurant. Absolutely delicious meal and excellent service. I wish i could go back.
