Essência Restaurant - Tiago & Éva

Portuguese chef-owner Tiago and his Hungarian wife Éva have created a bright, warmly run and deliciously different restaurant. You can choose a Portuguese or Hungarian menu – or, the best, a Tasting menu which combines the two in a series of poised, elegant dishes.

Tiago Sabarigo, Chef and Owner, born in Évora, Portugal, where he studied and started to work in hospitality. Tiago worked at prestigious and high quality places such as Ritz Four Seasons in Lisbon, Petrus by Gordon Ramsay, Texture Restaurant & Champagne Bar and Costes Downtown.

Éva Sabarigo’s professional education started in international luxury hotels, and after spending 10 years in front of house positions, she left the world of hotels for a dream with his husband, Tiago - which is Essência Restaurant.

“For us Cooking is an art that always existed. An Art that you can eat, drink, look at, that you can smell, an art that you can enjoy. If our Art is sublime, it can live forever in your heart and memory.”

Situated in Downtown of Budapest, Essência Restaurant - Tiago & Éva features the taste of Portuguese and Hungarian cuisine from childhood memories with modern top gastronomy.
