so tasty, omni friend impressed!!!!

Posted on 05 / 03 / 2014

It is a bit of a treck to this place, however if you get off the train at wuhlheide you can take a really nice 20 min walk through the park past FEZ (or you can drive or take a tram from somewhere which stops right out front).

I got the very expressive special schnitzel with vegan hollandaise and white asparagus! So great but 18euro as it was massive and was a special.

My friends got the celery schnitzel at around 10 euro and the the goulash at around 10 euro too. Both were amazing!

The ambience could be improved, some music wouldn't hurt but I would defiantly come back, I imagine it would be amazing in the summertime with the big doors open.

Pros: great food, riverside , vegan
Cons: off the beaten track

Definitely worth the trip

This place is a little bit off the beaten path - but well worth the trip from the city center: You will find a quiet place along the Spree river with a special, relaxing view. Watch boats pass by while filling yourself up with traditional German fare (dumplings, red cabbage, Schnitzel, Bratwurt, Hamburgers) and wonderful deserts - everything vegetarian / vegan. The service is very friendly and helpful - we'll be back.

Pros: outside seating, health food, attached to eco hotel

I already knew the essentis restaurant from last year in summer when the terrace was opened. We had cafe and cake - a perfekt sunday afternoon!

For easter brunch we came back and the huge variety of delicious vegan dishes was amazing! My favorites are: "gulasch essentis", chocolate mousse and tofu with coco creme! wow! Everything was just wunderful! Wunderful people, wunderful food, wunderful day! I will be back soon!

Pros: excellent food, friendly staff, nice atmosphere
