Respond to Review of La Mano Verde

Review: This restaurant has a cold, soulless atmosphere. It's okay for a business lunch or dinner, but I wouldn't go there for a romantic meal with my partner. I only ordered their raw food dishes and I was surprised they served me normal white bread with olive oil instead of raw crackers. The prices are quite high, their raw lasagne cost 20 Euros which I think is too much (for not even using organic produce) and that's why I ordered something else: their so called "Cremiges Limetten-Mandel-Gazpacho" was not creamy at all but tasted like a mix of fresh fruit and vegtable juice. Nothing special, I can make a better gazpacho myself. Their Quiche looked very beautiful and it was filling, but the taste of the red and green sauce was not matching with the rest on the plate. I don't understand why the chef would combine those flavours, so it was also not very impressive. As dessert I ordered the plum-walnut cheese cake which was nice and had some cinnamon flavoured fruit sauce. Some more smoothies or fresh juices on the menu would be good. It's nice to try their raw food once, but I wouldn't go there again.

At La Mano Verde all food, wines and drinks are organic and this is specified on the menu, you may now maybe better understand our price policy. Thanks. Jc Jury

Sorry if I was wrong about the organic ingredients, but I checked your website and couldn't see anything mentioned about organic produce... (for instance page "Mission" you only talk about Rohkost und Gourmet but nothing mentioned about Bio... Oh, I just double checked... very at the bottom you say it... sorry, you may now understand why people think it's overpriced :-).
