The Europahaus in Essen houses two establishments : the Stratmann's theatre, a well respected cabaret and theatre, and this restaurant. The menu changes every season and their dishes are all worth your while, both in quality and quantity. Basically Italian style, but with an international...More

Within a four night stay, I went to Leo's Casa twice. Both times were fantastic - nice ambience, lovely wine and food. The waiters/waitresses were friendly and helpful. Good venue for eating with colleagues and very convenient if you are staying in Motel One.

Due to doctor's order :-( I had some grilled veggies, salad and salmon dish. Not orgasmic but very nice. Great expresso and good service. I think the location makes the difference, it is a great outdoor place with healthy food, a rarity in Essen. Worth...More

Had a light dinner during a business trip and found the waitress to be very friendly and efficient. Ordered Carpreze and pizza and was impressed with taste. They do not accept credit cards (very weird for non Germans, but not unusual in Germany). Holders of...More
