Porto Tasty: A healthy point of view: Essência

A healthy point of view: Essência


Although essentially vegetarian, Essência offers a variety of options. Not only is there a menu for the vegetarian crowd, but also there are dishes to satisfy meat and fish lovers.

What is the concept of Essência?
As far as the cooking is concerned, chef Vitor Neto surprises with dishes full of creativity, something that fits in with the sophistication of the restaurant. This elegance unites with the decor. We find classical elements in its architecture, typical of the 1940s, which intersect with the most modern ones. Therefore, the Essência restaurant bets on the idea of preserving and caring for the old, a concept also reflected in Vitor Neto's dishes.

How is the space distributed?
