Amazing place

Very near to the Viertel in Bremen, Das kleine Local is a place you don't expect. Very high level of cooking for only 15 or 20 customers in total, so a reservation is absolutely required.

What an amazing restaurant! Although expensive thoroughly recommend this small, intimate restaurant for a culinary delight! The food is wonderful, the service exemplary. It is expensive but you'll come away with memories of a superb evening never to be forgotten. Recommend the Überaschung (serprise) menu - top quality food, impressive tastes and a picture to look at. As there are... More

Chose to eat here on a weekend Christmas Market visit to Bremen with my friend. Wow. Be prepared to sit back, relax and enjoy. Although the a la carte menu was very tempting we chose the 4 course Surprise menu which included some hot and cold amuse bouches. Every course was delightful, my particular highlight I think was the hand... More

As the name suggests this restaurant is out of the town centre amongst the suburbs.Eight Euros from the town centre for a taxi. Fairly small with friendly waiting staff and an interesting menu. Two of us had the 4 course surprise menu and two chose from the al la carte. The dishes were excellent, well presented and flavoursome. My only... More

It's a secret heaven in Bremen. It's hard to find but it really worths! The food, from starter to the desert, is very very delicious and served in a very stylish way. It's an unforgettable experience! Highly recomended!

I went for the surprise dinner and was positively impressed with the food combination. The rest of our group went for individual choices and had the same experience. It is not a cheap place, especially regarding German prices, but it is well worth exploring. Service was excellent.

Given by all the raging reviews here on tripadvisor me and my spouse decided to have a meal at das kleine lokal for our short vacation in Bremen. We we're aware of the prices beforehand but we were expecting a gourmet experience. What a letdown! Although the venue is nice and cozy, and the staff very attentive, the food was... More

I love this restaurant, from the expansive wine list - complete with bottle labels - to the phenomenal taster menu. The food is incredible, the restaurant small but the tables are big and well spaced out so you don't notice it. The service could not be faulted. This is one of the best meals I have ever eaten and the... More

The host did turn on an outside heater and brought chairs and blankets!We had a surprise us tasting menu which started with fresh Mango flavored champagne. Good, but the charge of $14(US conversion) was steep per glass. The rest of the meal was... More
