I've been here twice including Christmases eve. On my new trip I desided to take my wife here and it was the same excellent result. Yes it's prissy. But it's worth every euro. Better eat one time in Bandol than 3 times some 3rd rate sudoVietnamese Berlin food. The service is way ahead tipical berlin snobbish anarchistic usual attitude.

I really dislike giving bad reviews to a restaurant, after all the owners and chef do not want to serve people bad food. However, there's a lot of hype about this place in Berlin and I don't know why. They do a highly stylized food presentation, with a fixed menu of small courses. We are real foodies and yes we...

Our friend who we were staying with recommended this restaurant for my birthday dinner and we were not disappointed. The restaurant itself is very retro and unlike any I've been in before in terms of size and decor. Only a very few tables to necessary to book in advance. We went for the taster menu and it was exsquisite -... More

Exactly one year previously I'd enjoyed one of the best dinners of my life here, so I wanted to return and reveal this find to my wife. The food was outstanding, no doubt about that, and the remarkable, quirky atmosphere in this tiny 22 seat place is undeniable. But I need to tell you about the difference a staff member... More

We walked by Bandol several times, and we were so entranced with the hipster ambiance, we couldn't wait to make reservations. Bandol is a tiny open-kitchen spot with wall-to-wall chalkboard displaying the handwritten menu. Really cool atmosphere. Unfortunately, that's about all Bandol has going for it. We were a party of two, and the only other table in the restaurant... More

Outstanding food but pricey. Very friendly staff, small number of tables. Ambiance young and hip but not elegant and chic.

I think this place got famous because Brad Pitt and Angelina came here once. It seems to draw a certain kind of people for that reason. However, it's a really nice little restaurant in Mitte with five or six tables. The food is all traditional french (pate, fish/meat, creme brulee) with a high standard of quality. The reservation times are... More

This little restaurant was conveniently located around where we were staying. We got to read and hear about it as the favourite french restaurant of "Brad Pitt'. Despite an initial reluctance to visit this "celebrity endorsed restaurant", we gave in. The reason being that every night when we were passing by the restaurant, it was packed with cool Berliners rather... More

We didn't book a table at Bandol restaurant but felt lucky we got a table. Service was great - quick and personal, excellent food and wine. Really recommend it :)
