About Essen Restaurant

Home-style cooking prepared with love is on the menu at Essen Restaurant on McGregor Terrace in Stanthorpe. With a name meaning to eat in German, a vine-covered pergola shades the front door of this quaint and rustic venue, where cosy table settings and potted greenery set the scene to share honest food with good friends and family. From a weekly changing menu showcasing produce from the garden and Granite Belt region, expect choices such as mahi-mahi, horseradish crème, pickled shallot, green oil and soft herbs to start; before duck breast, celeriac purée, black garlic, white balsamic, strawberry compote, Spring greens and jus, or kingfish, brandade, XO sauce, pickles and purple sapphire chips. For an indulgent finish, try roast strawberry sorbet, labneh, panela meringue and elderflower.
