“Amazing dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Heising is run by a wonderful and friendly elderly couple who have been running the restaurant for thirty years. The husband shops locally for fresh food every morning on which to base the recipes for the evening meal. The fois gras is wonderful. They selected a perfect (and very affordable) wine to go with our meal. I have eaten here twice now, and it is one of my favorite restaurants in Europe. The decor and music take you back to a golden era, and I hope my parents get to eat here in autumn this year when they visit Berlin. Congratulations to the TripAdvisor recommendation as without it, I wouldn't have known about this gastronomic gem.

“Great food, slightly surreal experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Booked Heising after seeing the reviews and weren't disappointed! Very good food (no, it's not michelin quality, but it's really very good), service is beyond excellent, and the whole experience is a one-off. Definitely one to talk about afterwards!

“Great pleasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

We booked the restaurant for 7 persons and we really enjoyed spending evening there. Food is very good and atmosphere is pleasant. You feels like you eat not at the restaurant but at your friends or relatives. Service was nice, Mr. and Mrs. Heising are very attentive and friendly. Decor of the restaurant and owners presence make this place very charming!

“Very romantic excellent service! Classy..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

I am of the opinion, that no one can serve better than the owner, when the owner loves his restaurant. This is the case!
The Gentleman and his beautiful wife run this restaurant, with attention to the details, perfect manners, classy style, and a magnific menu.
The elegant atmosphere and the sweetnes of the service, makes the night adequate for a romantic dinner. However, the restaurant is also perfect for a dinner alone or for a business dinner.
The restaurant was until Nov. 2012, open only at night. Check if this is still the case.
This is the website: http://www.restaurant-heising.de/Restaurant_Heising/Willkommen.html
Just one detail before you get there, they don't work with credit cards, so you should withraw money on advance.
It's really worth it!
Enjoy!

“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!
