This restaurant looks like a cute and romantic place hidden in the old town of Bremen. It used to be my favorite location for special occasions. But over the years it changed drastically.
The menu changed from exquisite German & French cuisine to a menu that offers anything from steak, sushi, to cheap Singapore noodles and some German cakes, which questions the quality and style of the restaurant that used to be very special. Dishes also became cheaper which attracts a different type of clientele and further questions the food quality.
But the worst part is that the open-air garden-like part of the restaurant (tiny but romantic) became EXCLUSIVELY A SMOKING ZONE. This means that there will be people sitting a few centimeters from your table smoking the entire time and on many levels (the area is covered with a plastic roof which keeps the smoke inside the garden area). Even if u r a smoker I doubt this allows you to enjoy or taste anything special in the food if you are covered in a cloud of smoke. This is a huge pity because this used to be a really great place for romantic or family getaways and now it is being transformed into an average beer-garden with an odd menu and slow service.
Staff has not warned us that all seating outside is for smokers. In addition, we waited for 10-15minitues to be seated outside, 20-30minutes for the menu and the information that a table inside (possibly non-smoking) would be another 1h wait, even though we made a reservation.
Continue looking for a better place for delicious food and a romantic atmosphere. The old KatzenCafe is no longer there.
