What!? Italian food in Germany? Well, make this an exception! Located along the water by the ferry landing, so its easy to get to, and offers great views.
Not only are the pastas and sauces made fresh every day, you also get to see your custom made choice cooked in front of you! Menu's are available in english, simply choose what you like from the menu (my favorites: langostini with lobster sauce and veg's, or shrimp & spinach) and go up to the cooking bar to order and create! Warning! Large portions that are difficult NOT to finish! Good selection of house wines, and good german beers. Prices are a good value for the meal.
-highly recommended if you are spending some time in lovely Kiel.

We went for New Year's eve and was very nice. The food was very good and this system that you serve yourselve makes you feel very confortable. The price was reasonable and the environment is nice. They have also a good selection of drinks.

Self service restaurant - packed on a friday evening which made finding a place to sit a little difficult. But after wandering around for 5-10 minutes we found somewhere to sit. Our first visit to this restaurant - an urban beehive - and not quite sure what procedures to do. So we queued up in front of the cooking stalls like everybody else - ordered our food - watched it beeing cooked. There were three of us - and the cooks serve two persons simultaneously - which means one of us did not get the food until 5-10 minutes after the others. Then we had to order drinks from the bar... In other words; food was getting cold before all had been served. But for next time we´ll do things a little different;
1 - get a place to sit
2 - buy the drinks
3 - queue up in two different lines (with the same number of persons in front of you)
That way you all have place to sit, something to drink and most likely all have a hot meal - together.
Oh, and if You are a foreigner; don´t expect the staff to speak anything but german...

Fresh pasta and sauces made right in front of you at extremely reasonable prices. The flavours are amazing and the view on the outside deck is just beautiful on a warm sunny day. Grab a card on the way in and then proceed to the pasta bar, the salad bar, and then the drinks bar, loading the value of your purchases on your card. When your finished, present your card on the way out, and pay for your meal - such a simple system. Love it!

Lunch here was an unexpected treat. Food is made fresh whilst you wait. An all Italian restaurant, this is fresh, good stuff. Priced exceptionally reasonably and a nice waterside location and terrace. Recommended for a casual meal.
