"This smart cellar restaurant is pleasantly laid back, and the minimalist-style interior decorated in warm tones is beautifully modern. You have a clear view into the busy kitchen, where well-thought-out and harmonious creative food is prepared. The menus are accompanied by excellent wine recommendations from the professional service team."


"Since 2015, Erik Arnecke (formerly: Résidence, Essen) has been responsible for the kitchen in the sun vaulted cellar next to the magnificent half-timbered town hall on the market square - and since then there hasn't been a better meal in the area!"
