Respond to Review of Viasko - Bar und Restaurant
by beer and veg
Review: All rave reviews here, but I have to disagree. I was excited about trying this place and this idea that it was a really nice restaurant with delicious vegan food. I was sorely disappointed. It was not the kind of place to go for a romantic dinner on my birthday. If I was with a bunch of friends and wanted some overpriced pub grub, this would have been a good choice. The gnocchi was good, but nothing special and on the small side. My companion got the pflammküchen or whatever it is, at the server's suggestion, and was not thrilled and was still hungry. Both were pretty plain and completely uncreative. We decided to perservere and try the cheesecake for dessert. We were traumatized by the experience. It tasted and felt NOTHING like cheesecake, more like flavorless, gelatinous pudding in crust. It was indeed the absolute worst piece of cheesecake, and perhaps cake, that I have ever tasted. I'm not sure how to explain, but the menu and setup don't quite match the venue. A rowdy vegan pub would have been a much better direction. I know I would have been happier with that choice. Overall, Viasko had absolutely lackluster food in a pub-type place for not-great prices. I am a highly critical person, my partner is not. We both agreed, Viasko was not quite a fiasco, but definitely a waste.
