Respond to Review of Viasko - Bar und Restaurant

Review: Inexpensive? Ok so let's be honest two secs, Berlin is supposed to be a really inexpensive place, so when there is only 2 main which are less than 10 euros I don't call that inexpensive at all. Generally Berlin take advantage of the popularity of the veganism to raise the price. The service was pretty bad when we were there as they forgot about us, brought the ustensile later than the plate and we had to beg for the check. Although is seems like this place has great review, so : Or we were there at an extremely bad time, or they got lazy thinking they re the best . About the food, I got the gnocchi which were ok but not really great, not that tasty either. ++ for being able to see the kitchen staff making our food

Over the last two years they have raised prices, but this isn't reflected in the entry here on Happy Cow. For example, two main staples on their menu (the Flammküchen and the Gyrosteller) have increased in price by *at least* two euros each. But, the plates are still the same size...

I think you have to make a choice in the end: the quality of the dishes, including their presentation, diversity, and the choice to buy organic locally-produced, high quality vegetables (and everything homemade including the sauces), you cannot expect a nice sit-down restaurant for less than 9-10 euros, including in Berlin. 5 years ago probably but that is no longer the case--it is not because they are trying to mark up the price because it's "vegan", this is called inflation (Kreuzberg is more expensive to rent in these days) combined with an excellent vegan chef (or two) who knows what they're doing. To be frank, anyone who expects to pay less than 10 euros for a main plate made by a very good vegan chef should make their own at home.

The drinks are the same in price and are generally the same cost as everywhere else in Berlin (small beer for 2,20 or large for 3,40 on draft).
