nice vegan restaurant - Edit

also we are in berlin, there are not too many restaurants vegetarian or vegan. this one is ONE of them!

the menu is overseeable - the beer interesting and the food patchy.
we had three dishes - the seitan very good but without vegetables :-(,
the quiches too dry....
and the ravioli ok.
salads great! the chocolate cake wonderful!

the service a little bit too slow but ok.

also at this restaurant i am not sure if the food is organic or regional, but at least vegan!

go for it.

Pros: nice dishes, good accessible

Cons: service might be more attentive

Real insider's tip! :) - Edit

The Vaust Braugaststätte is our favourite restaurant in Berlin. It is a real insider’s tip. You can reach it very easy, because it is near the S-Bahn Station Savignyplatz. The comfortable ahmosphere invite the guests to stay. In the summer you can also sit outside. The homebrewed beer is delicious. Here you get two sorts of homebrewed beer: pilsener and dark beer. They also offer delicious homemade lemonades depending on what fruits seasonal growing. The staff is very friendly and can give you advice in vegan questions. You will of course get an English menu as needed. The menu changes with the seasons except for some classics remaining on the menu. The small menu points out that you will get a fresh cooked meal with hand-picked ingredients. The focus is on seasonal, organic-grown and fresh dishes.
In the Vaust you can get a taste of traditional German kitchen in a vegan way. Here you will find Schnitzel, Sauerbraten, Geschnetzeltes and Currywurst. But there are also sophisticated snacks, starters and desserts and some light dishes, like Quiche. On the top wine lovers can find a variety of good wines. Even if everything is vegan, meat eaters will find their full satisfaction.

You will really love the chocolate cake!

Die Braugaststätte Vaus ist unser Lieblingstrestaurant in Berlin. Sie ist ein echter Geheimtipp. Von der S-Bahnstation Savignyplatz ist das Vaust bequem zu Fuß zu erreichen. Die gemütliche Einrichtung läd zum Verweilen ein. Das hausgebraute Bier ist fantastisch. Angeboten werdden zwei Sorten hauseigenes Bier: Pilsener und Dunkel. Es gibt auch leckere hausgemachte Limonaden, je nach dem, was an Früchten gerade Saison hat. Das Personal ist sehr freundlich und berät auch gern zur veganen Küche. Die Speisekarte wechselt mit den Jahreszeiten. Die Klassiker des Hauses sind aber fast immer auf der Karte. Die übersichtliche Speisekarte zeigt, dass hier frisch und mit ausgewählten Zutaten gekocht wird. Der Fokus liegt dabei auf saisonalen, biologischen und in sich stimmigen Gerichten.
Im Vaust kann man die traditionelle deutsche bzw. gutbürgerliche Küche vegan erleben. Es gibt z.B. Schnitzel, Sauerbraten, Geschnetzeltes und Currywurst. Es finden sich zudem auch raffinierte Kleinigkeiten, Vorspeisen und Desserts sowie leichtere Gerichte, wie Quiche. Auch Weinliebhaber finden hier einen guten Tropfen. Selbst Fleischesser kommen bei der komplett veganen Küche auf ihre vollen Kosten.

Probiert unbedingt den fabelhaften Schokoladenkuchen!

Pros: good value, excellent food an beer, friendly staff

Finally a great traditional German Cuisine - Edit

I went there a couple of times already, and I love the seasonal Menu that changes over the year. I loved the homemade sweet potatoes gnocchis with sage and maroons and also their homemade Lemonades. There are nice people here, it's very comfy and quiet. The atmosphere is nice, the food is very comforting, it might be a bit pricey but it's worth it.
I wasn't a fan of the chocolate cake, tasted to "vegan" for me, and also wasn't gluten-free.
But all in all, I always come back to this place on winter evenings!

Pros: lovely cuisine, homemade lemonades and bred, nice place

Cons: not so many GF options

Tucsonans Love Vaust! - Edit

We visited Berlin from Southern US, Arizona, and were very pleased with our visit to Vaust. We arrived just before they opened, and the owner was very polite and accommodating. We loved the food we ordered! The atmosphere was quiet and low-key (of course, they had just opened.)

We will definitely return here when we next visit Berlin.

Pros: Vegan, Quality, Variety

Excellent dining - Edit

Very cosy and outstanding food. Not too pricy and not to fancy but very tasty. I had soy cutlets with potato mash, sauce and champignons. The service was excellent and we got to try some of their newest liqueur for free! I actually liked that the menu only had 2 starters, mains and desserts, but all so some smaller dishes and todays special. We didn't have any starter but went for a fresh sallad and bread with crazy good onion melt.

Pros: Great food!, Reasonable price, Service

Cons: Boring neighborhood, Maybe a bit limited menu

Nice Restaurant! - Edit

Really cozy yet spacious restaurant with great atmosphere. Doesnt have so many options on the menu but all are prepared seasonally and tasty. Good home brewed beer and homemade liquor as well! You can find the current menu with price (8-15 euro per menu) on the website.

Pros: Taste, Atmosphere, Friendly Staff

LOVE this place - Edit

I really did enjoy our meal here- the restaurant looks great, it's cosy, friendly staff...I love the fact they have a short seasonal menu- only supplying meals based on local ingredients they can work with. Fantastic! I think humans as a whole need to stop wanting everything all the time and live more like this (myself included).

A traditional menu which is great for a vegan tourist- the food was fantastic with lots of good flavours going on. Definitely our first stop when we go back to Berlin!

Pros: everything!

Cons: It's not near my home :(

Great vegan food in friendly restaurant - Edit

Great vegan choice. Limited menu but what is on the choice is well done. (I had read that this place was a microbrewery bar serving food like pizza and burgers. That's not the case. It's a sit down restaurant- we booked a table in advance- and priced like one!)

As visitors to Berlin we enjoyed the chance to try German favourites such as currywurst, done vegan!

We shared two mains- a sauerkraut with dumplings and ravioli. Both were tasty and good portions.

Chocolate ganache cake was lovely and a nice vegan treat.

Service was very friendly. Relaxed and relatively slow but sufficiently attentive and accommodating of our total lack of German!

Would definitely recommend this place for the food, service and beer although it is quite expensive (c. 60euros for 2x starter, 2x mains and drinks).

Pros: food, service

Cons: price

Excellent vegan food - Edit

This cosy restaurant in 'Mitte' offers excellent vegan food with a German twist. Most dishes on the menu are traditional German but all of them are veganized. Choices are quite limited but there's still more than enough to choose from. We had the ravioli, and tiramisu and chocolate pie as dessert. Both of them were excellent. The staff is friendly and they speak English.

Please note: it's not possible to pay with a credit card or a foreign debit card! So take cash with you.

Lovely place and food! - Edit

Although there is not much to choose from on the Wintermenu my partner and I thoroughly enjoyed the food! We were served a complimentary bread basket and I had the Ravioli main whish was very tasty but in my opinion needed more sauce over it as a pose to the oil that had been drizzled on it. My boyfriend who is not vegan but tries to eat vegan with me as much as he can, enjoyed his sauerkraut and dumpling main more that I enjoyed my food!

The only disappointment was that they had run out of chocolate ganache cake by the time we ordered dessert and so as a vegan that aims to eat mostly raw and healthy I was unlucky not to have a treat! We instead ordered the polish tiramisu which had some nice elements but I did not enjoy it very much as I am not a fan of boozey desserts.

I would definitely visit again but would instead order the sauerkraut main and make sure that there was a slice of chocolate cake with my name on it!

Pros: Nice atmosphere, Friendly staff, Enjoyable for nonvegans

Cons: Not much choice

Worth a visit - Edit

Vaust serves excellent homebrewed beers (Pilsner and Dark) and food. The onion quiche and currywurst were excellent, and so was the chocolate ganache cake. This place was definitely a treat, not a place you'll want to eat at often, because although good, it's not the healthiest food.

Pros: Good value, Good food, Friendly staff

Cons: Small portions

One of the best restaurants I've been to - Edit

I went her with my boyfrined and his parents (none of them are vegan) and we all had a great time. We decided to share a lot of meals and it was a good idea. Everything was good, and it was great to taste different things, from vegan currywurst to "beer cake" (more like pizza) and great alcohol as well.

The waiter was lovely as well, and the atmosphere was amazing! It felt like a "normal" restaurant, and not a green hippie world.. Which is good for someone, but not everyone. It was just a great place to bring family for a nice meal. I will definitely go back the next time I'm in Berlin!

I think everything except one or two dishes were vegan as well, and they were just different versions of vegan courses, so I didn't feel like I missed out on anything on the menu.

Pros: Amazing food, Good staff and atmosphere, Decent price

Cons: Some dishes were a bit small

Great vegan food, upscale but homey setting - Edit

I was visiting Berlin with some friends who are vegan and vegetarian, and we found Vaust through HappyCow. I'm so glad that we did! It was our best meal in Berlin by far. We ordered a bunch of different things (small plates, main dishes, and desserts) to share, and every one of them was delicious. Our favorites were the currywurst, the "small snack" (bread with amazing apple-onion spread, the brewery cake (which was really more like a pizza), and the tagliatelle. The home-brewed beers were also very good. We were really impressed by the fact that every single element of the meal was home made, from the bread to the pasta to the liqueurs to the vegan cheese. The restaurant also had a really nice ambiance, upscale without being pretentious, and very warm and cozy and intimate. The service was excellent. The owner was super friendly and very informative. We almost felt like we were eating at a friend's home. I'm not vegetarian, but I would eat at Vaust all the time if I lived in Berlin! (It's also worth noting that although the restaurant is billed as just being vegetarian, almost everything on the menu was actually vegan.)

An interesting concept for veg*n dining - Edit

Despite thinking we were pretty clued-up on the vegan restaurant scene in Berlin, Vaust somehow escaped our attention until recently. We decided to visit on a Friday night and were surprised by the location and atmosphere. Often, veg*n restaurants in Berlin tend to be modern, trendy and/or alternative. It's not clear whether it's intentional, but Vaust has certainly broken this mould and is extremely traditional in decoration and feel and is located in a very affluent part of town.

As for the food, it is a very modern take on traditional German cuisine with many of the dishes being being quite creative. We were impressed by our (100% vegan) meal (described at the end of the review if you're interested). The lemonade that they served was great and despite the huge variety of wine and beer on offer, I only had chance to try the Vaust dark beer, which was excellent. The menu states that majority of the food is organic and most of the options are clearly marked as being suitable for vegans or that it is possible for it to be prepared vegan.

The price was certainly not cheap but the food was of really high quality and therefore was good value in my opinion. The service was also very good and I would certainly recommend it to anyone who wants to try something new in Berlin. I could also imagine that it would be a good place to take parents or older relatives.

Our meal: "Berliner Antipasti" to start - home-pickled gherkin, parsnip carrot and kohlrabi served with beautiful (home-made?) bread and rapeseed oil. For mains, my wife had Kohlrabi schnitzel served with a chicory and orange ragout and a green purée and I had stuffed Savoy cabbage (it was described as roulade but I'm not sure what it was stuffed with some kind of cereal, perhaps spelt) with red wine sauce/gravy and what I think was baby new potatoes (Drillinge kartoffeln) - the Savoy cabbage roulade was particularly delicious. For desert, we both had caramelised pancakes served with peach and vegan whipped creamâ.

Pros: Delicious traditional yet creative menu, Lovely romantic atmosphere, Very friendly service

Cons: Not cheap, but arguably good value
