Situated in the revitalised harbour district of Hafenweg of Munster, Heaven, we were told, was "the" place to be seen of an evening. The area still has a suitably run-down feel to it with tumble down buildings and plenty of graffiti. Here and there old warehouses have been reclaimed and now house an array of chic clubs, bars and restaurants.

Heaven is on of those, and one of the most sought after in terms of table bookings. On the night, we dined, Friday admittedly, the restaurant was fully booked. Heaven attempts to offer a 'fine dinning' experience in the evening and after 22.00 transforms into an in vogue club.

Given that the restaurant is situated in what was a large warehouse, the interior is necessarily dark and the dank walls are hidden by long drapes and massive folds of material. Tables are hardy well worn wooden benches with a large metre high (scary) candelabra at the centre of each. Service on the night we visited was very good and attentive with plenty of assistance for translation (no English menu - always a good sign!) when requested.

The write up at the introduction of the menu promises a five star eating experience. The menu is pretty broad with a list of several starters – nothing that might not appear on a local Italian restaurant menu though. I choose the beef carpaccio. It was OK – nothing more. For main course I had the Barbary Duck which was tasty, nicely cooked and presented with some vegetable mousses and mashes. I have to admit that the three pieces of duck were a little small - perhaps they are trying to counter the traditional German tendency to err on the side of more rather than less on the plate. Wine selection was good – we had a lovely French merlot. The menu had a page of Thai dishes (no explanation), so I'm left thinking perhaps this is where the chef's strengths lie?

We eschewed desert as it was creeping toward 22.00 and the background music, rock, was slowly getting louder and the queue for the club was already pushing at the door. We headed back into Munster old town for a more comfortable night cap.
Overall, Heaven is a little overhyped in terms of food at any rate. Perhaps the late night entertainment makes it worth the trip out of town.

The location in the harbor area of Münster is nice (especially during summer) and I like the interior, but that's not enough to feel like being in heaven... It was quite cold inside and since the smoking area is open to the restaurant, smoke came drifting in. The food was OK but neither great nor original. Two of us had Pad Gai where the menu states "with cashew nuts"...yes...with exactly two for both of us. Service could have been friendlier too.

We were lucky to receive a voucher from Groupon.de to visit Heaven for a meal and having only been here once before, (which was lovely) I was not disappointed second time around.

We were sat outside and even though it was June, it was still a little chilly, so the waitress bought be a blanket, which was great.

I ordered the yellow Thai chicken curry and even though it was hotter than i remembered from last time, it was still full of flavour and very filling. My husband ordered the pork fillet steak and said it was cooked perfectly. We both had desserts, a chocolate mousse which was lovely and a mango/pineapple parfait, which was very icey, but still tasted good.

Because we had a pre-booked voucher, the waitress must have presumed that we were not wanting drinks, so it took a bit of time getting her attention to take our drink orders, but when we did, they came promptly and with a smile.

I would definitely go back and would recommend it to others for a nice night out.
