“Fantastic atmosphere and food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013 via mobile

I went to Heising with my husband on May 7th 2013 based on all the god rewievs on Trip Advisor. And we were not disappointed. Mr Heising himself welcomed us and we got a table in the main room. The atmosphere is fantastic and the food too. The Foie Gras was perfect, the Veloute of parsley roots was one of the best soops I have ever had and and bote the lamb and the veal tasted great! 4 courses of that quality for 54 Euros is very good value for money! We hope to come back!

“Quirky and "nicely old fashioned"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

The reviews are justifiably good on this restaurant but it is in a total time warp. The experience is like being in someone's private dining room with friendly, intimate (if slow) service. The food is fine but not gourmet as mentioned elsewhere but the experience is certainly memorable mostly for its charming eccentricity. I fear that a restaurant of this type would not survive in London, nor probably in Paris as restaurant tastes become ever more sophisticated.

Charming touch, on leaving my sister was given a beautiful red rose. Overall enjoyable but not the best restaurant in Berlin.

“Wonderful evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

I stumbled upon Heising as I wandered the streets around the hotel in search of dinner options. There was no table open for the evening but Mrs. Heising offered me a table the next evening, which of course I accepted. Dining at Heising feels more like you are having a holiday meal at a relative's home. You are treated to a lovely and delicious meal in a setting full of old world charm. Any time I return to Berlin, I will definitely put Heising at the top of my list.

“Go there before it is too late”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant is located in a living room like place. The food is tradtional French cuisine of a high level, but don't expect innovative dishes. Mr. and Mrs. Heising, the owners, are very charming and will do everything to make your evening very pleasant. They are already at a higher age ( but still going strong!) so hurry to enjoy their hospitality. You can only pay with cash, but this is not a real problem with the ATMs next door.

“Not really gourmet, but good value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

We got a table very near the door, so it was not the best place for table. Really nice service. Starters were good, both scallions and soup. Very nice Riesling. Main couse was a little disappointing. Desert was ok, but had a little too much of everything. Customers kept running out of the door to get cash since no credit cards were accepted! I got a rose when we left, nice surprise. Owners presence and service made this restaurant special.
