Respond to Review of CLOSED: La Mano Verde
by Cantona1983

Review: when we got there it was lunchtime and the restaurant was empty - the bigger our amazement that the waitress rudely told us off (after having shouted from afar, sit wherever you want) - that we had dared to push two tables for two people together and sat next to each other - when we told her, that another friend was to join us, she said - well then maybe move to a table for 4 - i would almost understand it, if it had been a busy saturday evening - but during the whole hour of our stay (tuesday lunch) only 5 of the 20 tables inside were occupied. anyway - we shared a lunchtime menu (for great 14,50 Euros) and a soup of the day and bombay rolls. (the drinks menu wasnt particularly exciting - except for an freshly squeezed orange juice for 7,50 euros for 2,5dl) the pumpkinsoup (my favourite soup in general) was quite bland and the caprese salad (with silken tofu) was also nothing special. the sauce that accompanied the bombay rolls was quite delicious and they themselves very nice. The main of the menu was a polenta cake with roasted veg was very good, the sauce it sat on was heavenly, the desert however, i know there are people that enjoy rohkost cakes but this plumcheese cake was definitely not a friend to my palate. My main criticism is the price. I dont understand how you can get away with asking a whooping 20,50 Euro for a Rohkost Lasagne - only because you "call" yourself a gourmet restaurant. this shows especially in the drinks menu where the lammsbräu which i have seen around the city restaurants for 3,50-4 Euros, suddenly costs 5,80 - so what do i pay the extra money for - the snobbiness of the waitress, or the white linen? would probably only come back for lunchtime - because the menu is actually quite worth what you're getting
