    This is one of the best restaurants in Lisbon. From the moment we entered, we knew it was going to be a special evening. The atmosphere and design are exceptional and even when full, it feels intimate and serene. We had the 3 course meal with wine pairings and each dish was perfect! The wine choices were also a great surprise. You must save room for dessert!! we noted that the service was of a very high standard. we will definitely go back again.

    I have been wanting to go to Essencial for quite some time, and it was definitely worth the wait. Cuisine perfectly executed, quite sophisticated, which could eventually use some twist to really put it at another level. Special mention to the desserts which were absolutely perfect. Great atmosphere and professional service, a perfect fit for a romantic night out or a dinner with friends.

    This restaurant is a treasure! The food we had was amazing. The scarlet shrimps on rice for two people were out of this world and the desert ( mille feuille and the lemon cheesecake-like tarte) were fantastic. The service was spotless and very friendly, including excellent wine recommendation. We will be back soon.

    Fantastic food with great service and an open kitchen where you see your meal being prepared then served by the chefs. I highly recommend the restaurant and will definitely visit again.
