Description: "Margaux restaurant right on bustling Unter den Linden in the heart of Berlin is a wine-lover’s mecca. Named for its top-flight wine list, Margaux cellars thirty vintages of this noble liquid. The cooking is renowned, too. It’s a new thing, styled Avant Garde Classic and chef Michael Hoffman has earned a Michelin star creating it. Based on the truest French classical techniques, Avant Garde Classic brings Hoffman’s prodigious powers of creation to combine new flavours in complex new ways. Menus include the Voyage de Cuisine, AC Classique with many options for substitutions, and daily recommendations. Dishes include marinated turbot with cream of sea urchin with watercress salad with passion fruit vinaigrette, parfait of Gilllardeau oysters with Champagne Beaumes de Venise and roasted pancetta, stewed lobster with black Perigorde truffles and braised celery in veal jus. The restaurant is luxuriously kitted out, with onyx-clad walls, lovely woods, warm velvet upholstery, imported antique mirrors, all styled to modern tastes. A temple to gastronomy. "

I asked for her and she wasn't there, so my experience there was frustrated. Maybe you have the luck of meeting her!! ;);)

Went there with my husband and kids. He and I had the 8 course meal and the kids about 4 courses. Amazing food and exceptional service. If you have the money definitely worth going to experience. The children didn't appreciate at much so I suppose it is better for adults. Nevertheless great dining experience but at a hefty price.

The dining room is very particular, with all jars of products. the vegetarian choice is the best. even if portions are of course very small (normal standard for this type of restaurant) the flavour are fantastic. prices are average for this high standing restaurant. i...

This is the place to go if you want to spend around 1000 dollars on Asparagus! The food did introduce a variety of garnishes. After approximately five hours, we looked forward to alternative uses of garnishes on different takes of asparagus. Sure, it was in season, a constant source of gloating by the restaurant staff, but to stuff us with... More

We had a wonderful evening at Margaux. While the decoration of the restaurant is a bit formal and uninspiring, the food and the service outperformed our (high) expectations. While we are not vegetarians we chose the vegetarian option as this is the fundament of Michael Hoffman's cuisine and also the base for his reputation as one of the best chefs... More

This was a very Interesting experience. We went with anticipation of a fantastic meal. What we had was a very different experience from our expectations. I firmly believe that the owner hostess and chef believe they are serving up the most artful and interesting combinations of food on the planet. And they are. However the word delicious was never used... More
