I can highly recommend Cookies Cream, I was there last Saturday. The food was well thought out and beautifully presented. The staff were friendly and chic and the whole experience was quite Avant-garde.
On the menu there was a choice of 5 starters, 5 main courses and 3 desserts. Everything was new and exciting and fresh. You won't have seen anything on this menu before. Everything we had was bursting with flavour. In my experience, this is the sort of vegetarian food that can be so hard to find. It's a little bit special. My only complaint was that I wanted to try everything!
The place itself is quite hard to find but don't let this put you off. It's well worth the effort. You need to go down a short lane-way off the main street (Behrenstr) and at the end turn right and then left (passing bins along the way). There are some steps up to the doorway and a bell you must ring so you can be buzzed in.
My partner and I discussed whether we should give the restaurant a 4 or 5 star rating. While there is a small amount of room for improvement, within this price range (€28 for 3 courses) the food was exceptionally good so I'm giving it a 5.
If I am ever in Berlin again I will definitely go to Cookies Cream again. It's a hidden gem.
Go for it, you won't be disappointed. Book in advance!
Innovative food, Avant-garde style, great value and delicious
