A return visit made on Whitsuntide Monday, in June 2014.
And a warm welcome was given to my wife and me by the young waitress, who showed us to the table we had reserved. This visit was entirely different. We appreciated the rapid service and the attention paid to our requirements. A very clear menu and wine list made it easy to choose our lunch and we were offered as an appetiser a delicate dish of marinated shrimps, at no cost.
On a sunny day, we were quite surprised to find that not many guests had come to share our choice, and this made the service quick. The chef makes a speciality of quality Mediterranean dishes as well as traditional fare, so there is no shortage of well-prepared dishes.
My choice was the “Lamb Duett”, in a thick sauce, with gratin potatoes and a side-dish of mushrooms and onion. The serving was copious and very tasty. My wife had a salmon and shrimp gratin in a cream sauce topped with cheese. Most attractive!
We spoke afterwards to the owner/chef, Andrew E. Onuegbu, who tells us he has been running the restaurant for some seven years. We were able to tell him how pleased we were to find the service much improved and he said he recognised how improvements were necessary in serving guests without long delays, a result, he said of choosing to present quality dishes which clearly takes a lot longer than with “rapid”, pre-prepared dishes. We agreed with him.
Prices are not high and the décor is attractive, in a classical manner, suitable for elegant dining in the evening. Suitable too if you are staying in one of the local hotels without a convenient restaurant.

Reserve a table because this restaurant is quite small. The selection of dishes is wide, and prices are competitive. Beautifully decorated tables make you feel that care is being taken and the food is delicious. You may have to wait an awful long time to be served, as each dish appears to be prepared on an individual basis. Sadly, this part of Kiel is not the most attractive of places and the restaurant is on a busy traffic intersection with few redeeming features. Recommended for lunch on Sundays, when you can take your time and relax. Select a dish you do not know and you will be in for a treat. However, if you go for one of the typical German dishes, you may be disappointed since they are not the chef's speciality.

We were three persons eating at Zum Mohrenkopf. The place is cosy but very old fashioned in style. The restaurant was fully booked and may be that was the reason for an extremely long waiting time for the food. We waited 20 minutes for the card and more than 1 hour for the main course. But it was worth waiting for. We had wild boar and and venison made traditionel german way. Very good indeed. The staff was not very service minded.
