ESSEN RESTAURANT & BEER CAFÉ

Friendly service, big hearty portions, and a nice selection of beers. Though it really is hard to choose a favourite, our top pick is the succulent Pork Knuckle which had been roasted overnight. Or try the terrific Sausage Platter; a large portion which while listed as an entree could be a meal in itself or shared. There are so many choices. Entrees offer Cured Salmon, Salads, Swiss Garlic Bread with Gruyere Cheese and Smoked Paprika, and a step back in time with Crumbed King Island Camembert and Crumbed Button Mushrooms. It‘s a fantastic place for a get together. And it’s our regular gathering place. We love ‘em! (RV)
