GoOPorto > Essência


This white tablecloth vegetarian restaurant is a very good option to gather around friends for a fun and delicious lunch or dinner. Essência is located only three and a half kilometers away from Porto historic center so you don’t have to worry about making a big detour in your planes to fit in a meal.

Here you can even enjoy a vegetarian version of the typical Porto dish “Francesinha” after all you didn’t come all this way not try what every tourist guide tells you to. There is also the vegetarian alheira starter so you can continue to have the true Portuguese cuisine experience.
