Restaurant Essence was established in 2010. It is owned and ran by an Austrian chef Filip Blazek and his Slovak partner Oxana Litvajova. Filip is a professionally trained chef with working experience ranging from top restaurants in Austria, Germany, Spain, Caribbean to 6 star cruise ships. The idea of Essence is to provide a fine dining experience in a relaxed and romantic atmosphere. We are proud to support local business. The wines served, in Essence, are produced in two outstanding Zakynthian wineries - Solomos and Grampsas. The ingredients for your meals are also preferably local and hand-picked daily by Filip, e.g. the olive oil, the fish and much more. Upon personal contact, we can also provide special menus for smaller parties.
