Disgusting: Neo Nazi working at Max Pett!

2 Posted on 09 / 11 / 2014

This isn't a joke, even though it sounds like it:

It was made public from Munich anti-nazi groups that the latest addition to the Max Pett crew is Daniel T., a Neo Nazi - former he says - even though it's hard to believe due to following facts:

- Not even a year ago he was busted by German police with a nail bomb (!!!) attacking a refugee camp, he is legally and finally convicted by a German court.
- He run for election for a German neo nazi party, he "just forgot to sign off".
- Lived in the famous "Nazi flat" in north-west Munich with people from the "NSU" political environment

When I checked Max Pett's Facebook website, two of the waiters wrote in their clear name (!!!) something like: "whoever exposures him is worse than nazis" (!!!).
The Max Pett crew still can not understand all the fuss that is made about this topic. Are they stupid or blind? Maybe both...

If you can not believe all this BS that's going on with this brainless crew just google "Max Pett Nazi" and use Google translate.

As a girl from a Turkish family this really hurts and I don't feel welcome there anymore. Really, really sick.

Good Food, but Expensive

3 Posted on 08 / 12 / 2014

I found the service and the food to be good. The prices were typical Munich prices: they went overboard. It is great to have a restaurant that has only vegan food, but when compared to other places in Munich that are "vegan only" this place takes the prize for being the most expensive. In my humble opinion, the food doesn't match the prices.

Pros: Cool location, Good service, Nice people
Cons: Very expensive, Not even close to "Lucky Leek" (Berlin)

Good food but worst service ever !

2 Posted on 07 / 27 / 2014

The food is good but expensive.

Went there a few times and the service is gettin worse every time I go there. Went there yesterday with my mum and this was the last time I did.

There are other vegan options in Munich.

The waitress is unfriendly and we had to wait for our dishes for ONE HOUR. I ordered soup and it was cold.

NEVER again.

Wenn man sich bei der Kellnerin über die lange Wartezeit beschwert, findet sie nur Ausreden und entschuldigt sich nicht einmal. Ich werde sicher nicht mehr ins Max Pett gehen, da gehe ich lieber ins Hans im Glück, denn dort gibt es excellente vegane Burger !

Pros: Good food
Cons: You always have to wait for the waitress, Expensive, Unfriendly

fancy and delicious vegan cusine

5 Posted on 07 / 26 / 2014

I've been here three times and was always very happy! They have very interesting options in the menu and it was really difficult to decide what to order! It is not very big and is always full, I had the impression. I loved the root beet carpaccio with mushrooms and the spinach curry with tofu. Everything very tasty, fresh and beautifully served. The desserts I've tried were also heavenly delicious: nougat panacota and chocolate mousse. They dont serve alcoholic beverage, but it was no problem. They have though alcohol-free wine and beers. I didn't like the wine, it was too sweet. The breakfast was also very nice there, I ordered a mixed plate with scrambled tofu, bread etc. They have different vegetal milks options for the capuccino. I highly recomend this restaurant, although th eprices are a bit high. But I guess it is normal for a city like Munich, and for such a special restaurant.

I've been there several times but last weekend I had the american breakfast for the first time and it had been awesome! Couldn't even eat all of it but the friendly staff offered a takeaway box without even asking :) really nice place and definitely worth a visit when in Munich!

My favourite vegan restaurant

5 Posted on 05 / 21 / 2014

This is the place to go to for a nice meal. I don't go out for food very often, but when I do for special occasions this is the place I go to. Great food, imaginative, well cooked and well-presented. It is not cheap, but then also not expensive if you compare it to a "normal" restaurant. I love their homemade ravioli and their deserts are to die for! If you can come for lunch they have a more economic set menu. Does not serve alcohol, but you can go for a drink before or after nearby. Highly recommended!

Pros: quality of food, variety of food, pleasant atmosphere

Terrific food, although pricey

5 Posted on 04 / 18 / 2014

I found the food to be really excellent. It was filling and well balanced without being heavy. They make a number of vegan variations of traditional dishes, like "chicken" cordon bleu. They do not serve alcohol, but have a wide selection of non-alcoholic beers and wine.

Even on a Sunday, the place was almost full. I took the last table outside. I would strongly suggest reservations.

As other reviewers have noted the prices are high, even for the center of Munich. I found the service to be average for Germany -- which follows different norms that the US and can strike Americans as rude or indifferent.

The decor is nice. It's small with a significant amount of outdoor seating when the weather is nice. The restaurant is on a quiet side street near the subway stop, so it's convenient but not loud or crowded.

Pros: Excellent food, Nice location, Quiet outdoor seating
Cons: Expensive, Hard to get a table

Not bad, not great

2 Posted on 03 / 06 / 2014

This place was a very mixed experience. The staff was downright unfriendly, the food was so-so, the prices nothing to rave about - but the vegan cake selection was fantastic!

We're not really going there again. You might have better luck!

Pros: Vegan cake
Cons: Food quality, Unfriendly staff, prices

The best curry I've every eaten!

5 Posted on 02 / 08 / 2014

Max Pett is absolutely the best food I've ever eaten. There was so much flavor in their food, I couldn't recommend a place higher than here!

Great vegan food, close to the city centre

Great variety of food in a nice atmosphere, daily menu is cheap and delicious. In the summer is a nice outside area under some trees. You might need to reserve a place during peak times...

Overall Positive Experience

4 Posted on 12 / 16 / 2013

I've only spent a few days in Munich so far but I must say one of the great things about Maxx Pett is that it is open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner (though you will probably require reservations at peak periods). Most other vegan restaurants have more limited hours . . . you can always depend on Maxx Pett if you need vegan food.

They offer a variety of styles of food from traditional German (Käsespätzle or noodles with "cheese") to healthy to raw. I especially enjoyed the antipasti plate I had as an appetizer and the Kaiserschmarm (a traditional Austrian/South German pancake chopped up and served with apple sauce in this case). I found the service friendly and the prices reasonable for a three-course dinner in Munich.

I intend to go back to try their breakfast, since I've heard positive things about it and vegan breakfast options in Munich seem limited.

Pros: open 7 days all day, variety of offerings, menu in English available
Cons: no alcohol (if this matters to you)

One of my favourite restaurants in Germany

5 Posted on 11 / 13 / 2013

I had a really good experience here, I just arrived to germany through Munich and looking on the internet, this was the closest vegan restaurant to my place. I just loved the meals and was surprised with the amount of alcohol-free beverages they had, so I could try the "traditional" weißbier in my own way.
The food was excellent and so the desserts. It was a bit pricey but I do think that's Munich price.

One of my favorite restaurants in the world

5 Posted on 10 / 23 / 2013

This place is one of my top 3 vegan restaurants in the world. I even brought back their ravioli for my aunt who is very picky about vegan food not being close enough to dairy and she said it was delicious. I have never had a bad meal here and I like the ambiance. The 4 or 5 times I've been there maybe the service hasn't been snappy but it seems normal to me by European standards. Also, even though I can order in German they have English menus and are happy to speak English with customers. Also, desserts- amazing
I just wish they served alcohol.

Pros: Delicious food, Nice ambiance, English menus & service
Cons: no alcohol, sometimes slow service

Sehr enttäuscht

2 Posted on 07 / 28 / 2013

Meine Feeundin und ich wurde nicht nur mit ironischen unmöglichen Antworten auf unsere Fragen abgefertigt, noch war das Essrn gut. Ich bin viele Jahre Veganerin, meine Freundin nicht und da ist es normal, dass Fragen gestellt werden. Ich finde es sehr schade, wenn durch so einem Besuch ich mich noch tausendmal gedanklich schäme für die Art und Weise wie auf Nicht Veganer "nicht Gutmenschen" herabgesehen wird. Und dann eben Seitan Wurst Scheiben gebraten als "Döner" zu verkaufen - naja - da gibt es besseres...


Cons: Non friendly staff, Food is boring

Food excellent, service not...but I returned and..

5 Posted on 06 / 25 / 2013

This is a nice restaurant, with a great outdoors eating area, and really quite excellent food. Quite expensive I thought, but just about worth it if you want to treat yourself and take your time over your food. The service needs quite a lot of work - admittedly it was very busy, but it was just impossible to get anyone's attention and I spent the second half of my meal really wanting another drink with my meal.

But I came back two weeks later for some breakfast and the service was great. Really recommend the tofu scramble for breakfast - one of the best I've had...

Le meilleur vegan a ce jour...

5 Posted on 04 / 09 / 2013

Cosimo le patron, et Peter Ludtke, le célebre chef, ont fait de Max Pett un endroit de reve pour un végan...
Le cadre est tres agréable, le service chaleureux, et une cuisine de tres haute volée... Réservation obligatoire, le restaurant est fréquenté par une clientele agréable.
Chaque passage dans ce restaurant est pour moi un moment de plaisir...
Tout végan doit avoir au moins une fois mangé dans ce restaurant... le souvenir restera impérissable...

Pros: Excellent food, Nice team, Quiet place

Mixed results

3 Posted on 04 / 08 / 2013

The first time I went here, it was just plain awful. We were forgotten and ignored for over 2 hours, and then got half of an apology for it, when our food finally arrived after 3 long hours.

I was recently dragged here again by a friend, and it was good this time.

The place is quite expensive, and I've been to much better 'fancy' vegan places, much tastier places, and much cheaper places.

Pros: All-vegan
Cons: Slow as hell

5 Posted on 01 / 28 / 2013

I had a goulash soup here at this place and i was travelling with my parents and found this restaurant and my parents loved it, they did not even notice this place was 100% vegan and we loved the deserts and everything, the staff was very friendly and the price was decent. Thank you and keep serving vegan food.

nice, but wrong choice

4 Posted on 01 / 18 / 2013

max pett is an excellent restaurant! i ordered a soy steak and it was not the best choice... a bit to tenacious for my taste and the mustard-coating was a bit to "mustardy". but the potatos were great, the sauce as well. and the dishes of my family i tested were really good! so i probably just ordered the wrong thing. the stuff and atmosphere was also lovely! i'll come again soon and try something else :)
prices are a bit high, so i'll only eat there for celebrating special occasions!

Fabulous Restaurant

5 Posted on 01 / 04 / 2013

My boyfriend and I ate here during our recent visit to Munich and had a great experince in every way. The menu offered a lot of choice, the food was really impressive and the staff provided great service, even accepting us without a booking, late in the evening when they were just starting to close. At the time, I was vegetarian (now vegan) and my boyfriend is a meat eater. We both raved about the food, it surpassed both of our expectations and we would definitely recommend to anyone who enjoys great food, not just vegans!!

Pros: excellent food, friendly staff, nice vibe

Extensive Wine list Expensive Food

4 Posted on 11 / 04 / 2012

A very impressive place set out out in modern decor and style. My title says extensive wne list, but it's ALL non-alcoholic. Who would pay €30+ for a bottle of zero alcohol bubbly?! The food is very expensive, even more so than Prinz Myshkin but it is of an extremely high standard nonetheless. It reminds me very much of the fabulous La Mano Verde in Berlin. Waiting staff can be a bit pompous and the place does have a slightly pretentious air about it, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. I wouldn't go there again simply because of the high prices and the fact that I do like a glass or two of wine with a great evening meal. Good luck to the place but it's not for me. I'm giving it four cows for the superb food and the attention to detail provided to each dish.

Pros: great food, nice setting
Cons: very expensive, no alcohol, expensive non alcoholic wines

great night at Max Pett!

5 Posted on 10 / 07 / 2012

Everything was very good for us at Max Pett. when we arrived at about 8 o'clock the place was about half full, and seemed to be operating smoothly. the waitress was attentive to us straight away, and gave us an english menu as soon as she spoke with us and could tell we couldn't understand a word of German. within a very appropriate amount of time she came back and took our drinks order and told us the specials. Before we recieved our entree we were given an amuse bouche of stuffed cherry tomatoes which was delicious. The specials were amazing, definitely a great way to eat as close to traditional bavarian food while still being vegan. we had one starter to share and a main each (2 people) and were both full and satisfied by the end. we certainly weren't overcharged, we didnt even pay for the bread which we were given two portions of (and was delicious). The only negative points i can think of were that the vege sausages were quite plain and obviously store bought, and that they charged for still water, so we didn't order get any. Apart from that everything was perfect, the service, the price and above all the food were of a very high standard.

Pros: excellent food, good value, great atmosphere

Amazing vegan breakfast!!

5 Posted on 10 / 07 / 2012

I always go to Max Pett when in town for Oktoberfest. Most recently made it there for their all-you-can-eat vegan breakfast. I don't want to give too much away here as I suggest you try for yourself but it was fantastic! I've never had so much choice for breakfast before. The waitress was also lovely and happy to translate into English for us. Can't recommend highly enough.

Pros: all-you-can-eat breakfast , helpful staff, delicious vegan fare
Cons: inconsistent opening hours, no alcohol served

5 Posted on 09 / 18 / 2012

Within walking distance of the train station, located in a quiet street. We went for lunch and then again for dinner the next day. They allowed our friends to get in with their dog. Very friendly! They have English menus and daily specials. I regret not trying more desserts. They looked delicious!

Yes, I am rambling, but I wanted to put all my observations in one sentence. Anyway, go if you are in Munich. This place rocks and won't break the bank.

Pros: desserts, ambiance, location

Great Variety with an Awesome Buffet!

4 Posted on 08 / 16 / 2012

Although the server was not overly friendly, she was much more friendly than other places I went in Germany, considering I don't speak German. She seemed busy but was still attentive and the buffet was delicious! They are open until 11 and do accept credit cards. I would definitely go back again!

Pros: Reasonable Price, Spoke English, Lots of Choices
Cons: German Menu

Expensive, horrible service.

2 Posted on 08 / 14 / 2012

I would not recommend this place unless you have a big budget and lots of time. The food was quite good and the variety on the menu was great, especially if you are excited to try some bavarian foods vegan-style (though I recommend going with a german-speaking friend to explain the menu items to you as the translations in the english menu don't do it justice). One more positive thing: they had a whole bunch of wines and beers without alcohol! That's a very rare and welcome find.

Unfortunately,that's the last positive thing I have to say. The prices were high and, like, you pay 50 eurocents for three small pieces of bread. It's not the money, it's the principle... If you charge for bread, fine, but don't be so miserly with it. The real issue was the absolutely dismal service. The restaurant was not busy as it was sunday night and we were arriving just after the supper rush. However, we had to wait like 20 minutes to have her take our order (well, actually, she came once, asked if we wanted to order drinks, then walked away before we could say anything). After we finally placed our order, we waited for about 45 minutes before asking the server if it would be arriving soon. She said it was on the way. About 15 minutes later we received some food on the table, and a bill. Sadly, the food was not at all what we ordered. We called her back and she took the food away, and left the bill, which was for a different table altogether. Eventually she realized that too and came back for the bill. 15 or 20 minutes later our food finally arrived. As I said, it was good, but the not entirely warm and the portions of the particular dishes we ordered were not incredible for the price we paid, especially after we sat for an hour and half getting hungrier and hungrier. We didn't receive any discount or anything, in fact, the server never even apologized or even acknowledged anything was out of the ordinary. I am not a big snob about service, at all, but when I am paying a whole lot for food, I expect it to arrive within an hour and to be treated politely. I am an english speaker but my bavarian friend was ordering for us so I don't think it was an anti-tourist thing, I don't think the server even noticed how bad our experience was.

I think they have a lunch buffet on the weekends that is all you can eat. Maybe at that time you would be getting a better value and you wouldn't have to deal with the crappy service. If the food was still as tasty, it'd be great!

Pros: Tasty, Alcohol-free drinks
Cons: Expensive, Horrible Service

Expensive and bland food and terrible service

2 Posted on 08 / 13 / 2012

I would actually rate them with less than two stars if I could. I spent seven years in Germany and grew to enjoy the slow dining experience. I didn't quite enjoy this one. After seeing people who had come in after my party, get food, eat, pay and leave, we began to wonder what was going on. After nearly two hours, we flagged down the only server and asked what the deal was. She apologized and said she had forgotten to put our order in. She said she would put the order in and have it rushed. The food came out after 30 minutes. I ordered the tofu palak and it was immediately clear the food was rushed. The veggies were barely cooked and tasted raw. While raw foods are great, it was not what I was expecting. The flavor was bland, and the only thing with real flavor was the sauce, there was not enough.

After confronting the server about the wait time, she offered us free dessert and after only waiting 40 additional minutes, she brought one dessert for a table of three. Considering the wait time and cost, I think it should have been more.

Beyond just the wait and bland food, the bathroom was a mess. The trashcan was overfilled to the point where paper towels were in a pile on the floor. There was yellow liquid all over the toilet seat and floor as well.

Also, I would not consider the price moderate. My tofo palak was the least expensive entrée among the group and it was 15 €. I would consider 10-12 € per entrée moderate.

Pros: vegan, music
Cons: service, flavor, cost

proper vegan

5 Posted on 08 / 06 / 2012

The summer tables are in shade, under the trees, that even on a day above 30degrees makes it enjoyable. But the most important of all, the food is tasty, good and abundant. The chocolate mousse was excellent, albeit a bit too sweet for someone who has been making only macrobiotic cakes (my boyfriend thinks it was perfect).
Highly recommended

Vegan with Style

4 Posted on 08 / 06 / 2012

This is a nice, stylish mid-range restaurant which has a classy but relaxed atmosphere. It is the perfect place to bring friends and family, even if they are not fully vegan or vegetarian, and still impress them with the taste and quality of the food.

The daily lunch menu is always a deal, and presents an ever-changing selection of seasonal options. The permanent menu also has some great options, many of which are inspired by Indian cuisine, which has been completely veganised (like the Palak tofu, Ayurvedic Plate, and Daal Soup). They also have a vegan version of traditional German breakfasts. Overall, everything I tried there was great!

Pros: Very Good Food, Friendly Staff, Good Location

Delicious

5 Posted on 07 / 21 / 2012

Went on a Thursday evening and it was ~2/3 full. The delicious food made me realise why it was so popular mid week. Friendly waitress gave me an English menu even though I spoke to her in German. She was working alone and restaurant was rather busy, so service was slow. Food was excellent. I really recommend the chocolate mousse for desert - it is devine!
Do take cash though as they only take EC cards.

5 Posted on 05 / 03 / 2012

Once we found this place, thanks to Happy Cow, we ate only there during our stay in Munich. All the meals were delicious and the staff - very friendly. My non-vegetarian husband was very content with the food as well. My personal favorite among the drinks was chai-tea with coconut milk. By the way, the restaurant is located quite close to the Central station, which can also be very convenient in some situations.

Pros: excellent food, friendly staff, good location

Just finished an amazing dinner at Max Pett, I had to roll myself back to the hostel after splurging on a mixed entree, curry main and ginormous warm raspberry and vanilla ice-cream dessert - and my family thought I'd starve in Munich - Place wasn't too packed so the service was fine and the waitress was kind enough to sit at my table and read me the menu in English ^_^

I very highly recommend Max Pett, well worth a visit for some delicious vegan food. They have a standard menu but also a rotating weekly menu with local, fresh ingredients. The menu choices are very well thought out and prepared, the prices are fair based upon quality of food provided. Friendly staff also.

Best in Europe

5 Posted on 01 / 03 / 2012

So far, I have to say that this is the best vegan food that I have found in Europe. Went there a little before Christmas for dinner with another vegan friend and we were totally blown away. Amazing staff, great food, cool atmosphere and decent prices. Make sure you try the mousse for desert.

I did go there for brunch and was a little let down by their pancakes, so I would really recommend going for dinner rather than the brunch. Not that it was "bad" or anything, but it was nothing compared to what they offered for dinner. I think we had some Ravioli with pine nuts and pomagranites along with some kind of faux meat with mushroom sauce. Anyways, if you are anywhere near Munich make sure to check this place out!

Pros: Awesome Food, Great Staff, Relaxed Atmosphere
Cons: None

Stellar--a "Must Visit" if you're in Munich!

5 Posted on 11 / 13 / 2011

This was our fourth visit, and their tradition of excellence continues. Our meal was wonderful while the staff exceedingly friendly and happy to serve as well. Unfortunately, for our visit the English menu had not yet been updated, but the staffs' language skills made up for any problems in our German. Reminder: they are still a "cash only" restaurant which is a bit of a pain . . .

Pros: GREAT Food, Helpful Staff, Easy subway access
Cons: Cash only, European-style service speed--not fast

Great vegan restaurant in Munich

5 Posted on 09 / 29 / 2011

I was very impressed when I visited Max Pett. There's a leafy outdoor seating area and the restaurant interior is light and airy, with wooden flooring and comfy seating uphostered in a fresh lime green. They have a wide selection of alcohol-free hot and cold drinks, wine, beer, and even cocktails.

I couldn't understand all of the menu, but it looked like an impressive, original array of vegan dishes. I ordered truffle ravioli (12.9€), which came in a creamy sauce with sundried tomatoes, walnuts, capers, and artichokes - an exciting and satisfying mix of flavours. For dessert I had a Knusperbecker (6.8€) - a caramel-nougat icecream sundae served with nuts, wafer and caramel sauce.

The service was very fast and efficient (it was quiet when I visited) and the decor and atmosphere was pleasing. The one low point was the hot chocolate I ordered with my dessert - it was bland and disappointing. (I've yet to find a truly great vegan hot choc!) I also found it a bit expensive, although they do have cheaper options, e.g. a main plus soup or dessert for 8.5€ until 6pm on weekdays. They have English menus available if you ask.

I'll definitely return to sample more of their menu before I leave.

Best vegan food in Munich

5 Posted on 05 / 10 / 2011

We kept coming back to Max Pett because while there are other reasonable vegan options in Munich, their food was without a doubt the very best we had on our whole trip. As far as we were able to determine, they are also the only all vegan restaurant in central Munich (I'm not sure about further afield). We loved their non-alcoholic beers, their changing menu, their daily specials, and especially their amazing ravioli! The staff was very friendly and helpful, and extremely patient with my wife and I who speak little German. When we return to Munich we plan on visiting Max Pett quite often again!

So good- skip the others...

Best vegan food in Munich, if not in Germany. We were in town several days and ate here many times. Even if you are vegetarian, not vegan, I think it still out shines the other places in town.

They have a wide ranging regular menu (Indian specialties, donner, and more European style fare) and seasonal weekly/daily specials. We were lucky to be there for asparagus season and had some excellent white asparagus soup. They also have desserts and vegan cake! So good.

After days of being tourists and site seeing where the only things for vegans were salad and pommes frit, it was so nice to sit down to a full vegan meal ith lots of choices.

The staff and owner are super nice and helpful. Will translate the menu for you and will pack things up to go (like cake!).

If we make it back to Munich, this will be the first place we go. :)

Pros: Great staff, Great food, Reasonable prices for the high quality
Cons: Closed Sunday

Wow!

This was a chance visit with a stubborn omnivore on my last night of a few days in Munich. It was superb.

The decor is modern, clean and inviting. The menu is varied and interesting without being pretentious. The manager came to our table and gave a personal translation of the menu. We ordered 2 entrees and 2 mains. Stubborn omnivore was impressed as was I. My beet/coconut soup was superb and the goulash was no less. The huge choice of non-alcoholic beers was a nice touch too.

We had to leave in a hurry due to our car park expiring so we paid (a very reasonable bill) and skipped desert. But on the way out the manager insisted that the chocolate mousse was a must. Intrigued, I asked him to pack one to go. We had a small conversation and a few minutes later the mousse came out and I pulled out my wallet. What a pleasant surprise when he handed it over gratis.

And so, after years of browsing, I finally joined happy cow to give something back by letting you all know that Max Pett is das Lokal.

Pros: excellent food, nice decor, friencly staff

I discovered Max Pett in April 2011 and I will definitely return to taste their lovely food again. Perhaps you can find cheaper food elsewhere, but can you find better?

Pros: Delicious, Friendly, Central
Cons: None

A Must Visit Restaurant for Vegans in Munich!

5 Posted on 03 / 27 / 2011

Max Pett is awesome! We ate there twice even though we were only in Munich for two days. The food was great, and the staff was friendly. Some spoke English better than others, but we didn't have a problem ordering. We tried four dishes, truffel ravioli, spinach curry, vegetable roulade, and saffron risotto. Everything we had was delicious! I would especially recommend their cakes. We tried two kinds, one that was vanilla cake with marmelade filling and dipped in chocolate and the other was a vanilla cake with lemon glaze. Both were so tasty! The chai tea was also great. This place was like an oasis since we'd been travelling for days eating mostly snack food we found along the way as vegan food can be hard to come by in the German countryside. If you're a hungry vegan in need of a real meal in Munich, go here first!

Pros: great food, good atmosphere, friendly staff

Wonderful meal!

I went here with two adults and my one year old daughter. Not a place for kids to run around, but all things considered, it was kid-friendly (had a high chair!). The meal was wonderful! Everyone loved theirs. Cozy, stylish interior too. We will certainly be back!

Very nice dinner

4 Posted on 01 / 10 / 2011

I ate dinner here with my boyfriend a few days ago and it was great. It's so nice to see vegan restaurants spreading around Europe. This place is maybe two months old.

Our waitress spoke very good English and tried to translate everything on the menu for us because we don't speak German. The dishes were very unique and delicious.

I had the celery schnitzel with mashed potatoes and a lovely green gravy (not sure what it was exactly). My boyfriend had a mushroom dish that also had a tasty gravy.

A little pricy but still good.

Pros: everything vegan, speak english, delicious
Cons: tad expensive
