Delicious and surprising

This is one of the best vegetarian restaurants I have tested. Everything was delicious, except the dessert which was disappointing (it was a sort of frozen Jasmin cake with chocolate that was insipid and boring). Unfortunately, it was the only dessert option...

I got the 5 course, partner got the 3 course so we were able to taste everything. the flavours had such dept and serious thought has gone into the menu. every dish is different and some are definately much superior to others. The staff were some of the best I've ever encountered .... More

We absolutely love this restaurant. We turned up and it was full so we sat outside, in October, under blankets and ate the best food ever. I can't explain what made it so good but every single element on the plate worked in a way most meals don't. The plate of food looked incredible and the deserts were sublime. Although... More

My partner and I, both veggies, tried Lucky Leek because although eating out as veggies in Berlin is usually easy, it's always good to be somewhere where you don't have to check the menu for the veggie options and where you can have whatever you want. The decor and ambience is really pleasant and the staff helpful and efficient. A... More

RECOMMENDED: Reservations strongly suggested. This a a fine dining experience and not for a quick casual quick meal. The focus is on a prix fix menu of 5 courses to which you can add a wine pairing with each. The al la carte menu is small and not a primary focus. We went full in for the set menu/pairings and...

The restaurant is totally vegan. If you write it off simply because of that then you are missing out on a treat. I have visited three times and plan to return regularly. There is a fixed menu and a few specials, the choice is more like "which courses do you want to partake in" as there are typically 4 courses... More

After a few days of dining in Berlin, my husband had had enough of reconstituted meat. I read about this restaurant in the guide book. It seemed to be fairly near to our hotel, in east Berlin. My husband called them up but they were fully booked. As the neighbourhood sounded fun, we walked there anyway and were lucky enough... More

Lucky Leek in the Prenzlauer Berg neighborhood has to be the trendiest vegan restaurant in the world. A very yummy amuse bouche served on a slate platter promised a meal to savor and remember. And yes, our high expectations were well rewarded. Just studying the menu brought us immense pleasure. Carrots and Hazelnut Praline. Caramelized Feta Cheez. Braised seitan filet.... More

My partner and I (both vegan) were invited to dine at 'Lucky Leek' by our friends (both meat eaters), which we were very excited about, as we had recently heard great things about the restaurant and wanted to try it out. On arrival, we watched on as the 'greeter' arrogantly looked down his nose at the couple ahead of us... More

this is by far the best vegan restaurant I've ever been to. if it would be possible I'd rate it with 6 points as the service was excellent! I'd totally recommend trying the dessert, they serve the best homemade truffles. I loved them so much I actually bought some to take home but they didn't survive a single night :D... More

Staying in Prenzlauer Berg

Neighborhood Profile
Prenzlauer Berg
No Berlin neighborhood has undergone a greater change than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays, thousands turn the park next to remnants of the wall into a playground for street artists, musicians, and flea market shoppers. This attracts young urban families who enjoy the balance of big city life and small-town comfort. Meanwhile, trendy, young, upper-class visitors from all over the world are attracted to the local high-end shops, cafés, and sophisticated bars and restaurants. The merits of this transformation are a favorite topic of debate around the city, but it makes for some of the best people-watching Berlin has to offer.
