Pub food with a twist!
We were in Stanthorpe for the weekend to enjoy the rainy weather in the countryside. We asked around for a nice spot to have dinner. Many of the locals had told us of a young man who was well travelled and well versed in fine food at a new restaurant in town called “Essen”. They kindly gave us the website details and we quickly booked ourselves a table for the following night.

It was a small but comfortable little place. Our server was friendly and informative about what all the menu items entailed.

I ordered the schnitzel with was cooked nicely, not too dark or oily. It came with a potato salad on the side, it was nice but it was really cold which I thought was odd. My husband ordered the steak which looked so good I had to have a bite, and it was perfect in every way. We are so used to ordering medium rare and getting a steak grey or grey/pink in the centre. This one was beautiful and juicy and a lovely red/pink in the centre and perfectly seasoned too, the highlight of the night.

Overall, a pleasant evening. The menu was not quite what we were expecting but we would certainly return for a steak like that again, it was so so good.
