I went to enjoy a 3-course lunch menu. Each course is priced at €11; in my view, this is reasonable for a restaurant of this class, though for about the same money, one can go to a Michelin-starred restaurant here in Berlin.

The food lived up to fairly high standards, aspiring to one Michelin star but not quite there in terms of execution. Ingredients were fresh, and the addition of various fresh herbs to otherwise fairly standard dishes made for a novel sensory experience. The recommended wine worked out well.

The restaurant is well furnished and bright, but looks a bit like a cafeteria in terms of layout. Service was attentive and flawless throughout.

This restaurant was a dissapointment.
Went there for a family celebration and had high expectations.
Food was "la-la", paying more than a hundred euros a head.

I would like to reccomend this Guide Michelin Restaurant to:

1 - make sure waiters are fluent in English...Service was ok, not more.

2 - be more careful about the so called "surprise menue". Pork cheeck, snails and brain (!) might be a good surprise for many people, but when party includes 80-year old countryside guests, restaurant could at least hint whats coming....

Some dishes were excellent, including desserts. Wine that comes with menue is also right on spot.
Though, in this price range this is not a reccomendation. Sorry... There are many restaurants in Berlin for half price that gives you better value for money...
And yes, its not a brag, but I know the scene pretty well....

This is a first class restaurant. The service is welcoming and attentive. There are views over Ku-damm from most of the tables. There is an a la carte menu, but the main focus is a degustation menu, from which the diner can choose 4, 5 or 6 courses; I chose 4 and the price was 58 euros. There is a selection of about 15 to 18 items from which to choose and I chose a lobster appetizer, a wild herb soup, bison entrecote and a cherry/pistachio ice cream dessert -- these simple words do not begin to describe the exquisite presentation and flavor of the dishes. They also present amuses-bouches and sorbet palate cleansers (once again, more exquisite than the usual) in between courses. There is a very nice wine list, including a number of interesting wines by the glass. For a special gourmet relaxed meal, this is the place!

We had a super meal here last Friday. Restaurant very quiet with only about a dozen covers in total. Excellent friendly service and tasty, interesting food. Most enjoyable experience!
