Review: Update: We've gone back quite a few times and the dishes never fail to please the senses. I had the flan with topinambour starter, knödel with artichoke purée and tamarind sauce, and a really fantastic dessert with an almond cake, dried olive and liquorice, lemon and salt sauces, topped with olive oil frozen yogourt. For vegans there is one choice of each, so if you have concerns, please call first...all of the staff speaks english. I also had a tasty cocktail with gin, St.Germain, tonic and thyme. They have also closed down the club part, so there's a small bar downstairs to have a drink while waiting to be seated, and thankfully no more smoking(removed from cons)!! wow, wow, wow. i am so happy that i looked up vegetarian restaurants before i flew of to berlin, because otherwise i would never have found this hidden gem. i decided on a whim to go visit my boyfriend in germany for a week, and dining here on my last night in berlin really summed up a magical week. i loved the obscure path to get there. and the vibe inside was really cool...the waiter was very nice and friendly, and spoke english very well. ah, the food...take note that there are no salt and pepper shakers on the table, because there is no need. everything is so delicately flavoured so that you savour every morsel. i went beyond my wildest expectations. i love the veggie cafes and bistros, but i'm so happy to have found a place like this that offers such a fine haute cuisine dining experience. it is a bit pricy, but worth every penny and more, so i can't even put the price as a con. if you order a couple of drinks, expect to pay 50euro/person...28euro is the bare minimum for germany you never get free water, so at the very least expect to pay 35euro. i thought i was cheap giving a 10euro note as tip for a 98euro bill and was confused when the waiter looked so happy, but my boyfriend later explained that tipping is quite different from here in north america, but that's beside the point hehe. my boyfriend is not a vegetarian and has a very huge appetite, and even so said that it is the best restaurant that he's been to, which says a lot given that the portions for each course a small, but so delicious that you leave completely satisfied. yumm!! the only con is the smoking...
