Essence on Exhibition
Melbourne Marriott Hotel
92-106 Lonsdale Street
Essence restaurant is directly linked to the Mariott Hotel and worth trying out if in the area or staying at Mariott. Food is decent but prices are on the higher end.
For the ‘Pre Theatre’ option, its 2 course for $40 or 3 courses for $50. We opted for 2 course having an entrée, two mains and dessert.
Super tender calamari pieces perfectly spiced. Loved the Asian inspired salad too. 8/10
Salmon was dry and overcooked. Raratouille was good. 5/10
Perfectly cooked steak (medium rare) and super crispy fries! 7.5/10
Delicious pannacotta! Creamy and not too sweet with refreshing flavours. 8.5/10
