Maravilloso - Edit

Por fortuna, visite Berlin en los mejores días de sol y pudimos cenar en la terraza. La decoración preciosa y una zona muy tranquila. La comida es absolutamente increíble, de otro planeta. Y la atención encantadora.

Pros: La comida es deliciosa

Cons: Nada

Thrown back to those days one had to choose from lots of opportunities it was really hard to make a decision so after getting full of delicious food we ordered the dessert as take away. It was yummi as well.

Pros: all vegan, lots of options, nice outside sitting

Other options are much better - Edit

Well, if you cook at home vegan or vegetarian way, the food here will be in any point special. Is only one waiter-a kind girl- for everybody, clearly not enought. Not very creative food, not special, desorder, some kind of litle pankakes were burned. i miss the "love" in the food and in the place. I was in the breakfast buffet, place was dirty, desorder, they need more waiters. I had the feeling that this place in the past was a really good place but now they lost the hope. Better go to other places in Berlin

Pros: Kind waiter - girl

Cons: Food, they need more waiters and love in the food

Great food in a homey, typically German atmosphere. - Edit

Decided to go for a spontaneous dinner here on a Thursday night. Tried the cordon bleu dish which was absolutely delicious! Highly recommend it! The tiramisu and mango lassi (which actually tasted of mango, unlike in some other places) also trumped our expectations. Prices are fine and the waitress was friendly and welcoming. Heard brunch is well sought out - will definitely be reserving to try it out soon!

Pros: Awesome food & drinks, Cozy atmosphere, Friendly staff

Cons: Cordon bleu was approx. 15€

That brunch is life! - Edit

I tell you the brunch they offer Saturdays and Sundays, is just epic!

Everything is delicious - especially all the salads are just very flavorful and rich.

If you want to make a reservation, which you should, ask to sit downstairs. It is very cosy and more private there.

They also except credit cards, but are currently expanding that to international cards as well. Therefore currently it might happen that only local cards are excepted. I asked the owner, as it is stated that they only except cash on HappyCow. Him, and all the other waiters were very nice and polite as well btw.

I will return for sure:)

Lovely Dinner - Edit

We came here for dinner without a reservation (mid week) and received a warm welcome. The menu was small (3 starters, 9 mains, 2 desserts) but we found something we each liked. The faux meat was amazing in the caesar salad, but a bit too realistic in the roulade, very beefy, almost like fatty meat. But the service was friendly and everything tasted amazing. Note, cash payments only.

Really tasty food! - Edit

I had the vegan carbonara penne with soy meat and it was seriously one of the best thing ever!!! The starters were also really delicious.

Note that they really don’t like fur there (even fake ones) as I had my jacket with some fake fur on it and they asked me to hide the fur part...

Oh also - the tiramisu is delicious as well!

Cosy place, great food and brunch - Edit

We visited the Viasko for their brunch. Our experience was that the staff is very friendly and the atmosphere at the restaurant is nice and comfortable. The food was delicious. They have a good variety of different warm, cold and sweet and salty dishes.
There is just one thing that you should know: The owner wishes no fur or fake fur in the restaurant. A woman next to us had fake fur at the hood of her jacket, the staff explained her friendly that they wish even no fake fur. She curled her hood that the fake fur wasn't visible anymore and it was no problem. For us is this no point to critzise the restaurant. It's their special wish at their guest and in exchange they serve absolutely great vegan food.

Pros: Very good brunch, lovely place

best brunch EVER! - Edit

The first stop of our Berlin trip was the weekend brunch at Viasko. I read lots of good reviews but also some bad but I really could NOT see/taste/feel anything bad. The two waiters were so nice and the food. OMG the food!!! Still dreaming about this whole perfectly arranged buffet. Everyone can find something there. I wish we had something similar in Austria because I've never seen/tasted anything like this before. Also the hot chocolate (not included) with the vanilla milk foam was the best I've ever had. If you have any doubts because of a not-so-good review... FORGET them. Trust me. You'll see what I mean when you have the first sight of the brunch buffet there :)

Updated from previous review on 2017-09-21

Pros: best brunch ever, lots of different, very tasty food, they refill the buffet

creative - Edit

Don't understand the occasional bad review and glad to see it's only few. When I was here a few days ago both staff members working that night were absolutely lovely and friendly. Food was creative and tasty. I grew up in Germany and particularly enjoyed having traditional dishes (onion soup, spätzle) and my boyfriends antipasti and cauliflower almond rice with peppers were brilliant too. Good to see such a spacious place being entirely vegan!

Pros: lots of space, good food , you can take your time

Could've been great. - Edit

I want to love this place but I've been there 3 times over the last couple of years now and I keep realizing that I'm leaving unsatisfied.
I have been there for the Sunday brunch and they do have a big selection of dishes, both cold salads and hot food. They do feel a bit random though, maybe they want to offer something for everyone but I would appreciate fewer but well put together dishes over a great selection of mediocre ones.
In general the food has been quite tasteless and I've catched myself thinking I could make it better at home. It's not crazy expensive but the brunch plus a drink ends up not feeling worth it for me.
Again, it has some potential but it's almost frustrating that it doesn't really make it all the way. There are better brunch/breakfast options in the area.

Pros: Nice space

Cons: Bland food , Not great value for money, All over the place selection

BUFFET - Edit

Get the buffet at Viasko. It will change your life. I actually ate way too much food, but it was so worth it. Definitely one of my eating highlights of Berlin.

Pros: TONS of buffet options, Delicious food, The buffet

Cons: Too much food to try it all

Great Food - Edit

Attention: This is a cash-only place.

I had the cauliflower-almond rice with cashew pepper.
It was delicious!

The atmosphere was good; inside it has a pub feeling, but without the noise. :)

The staff was polite, could be a bit friendlier; but it's alright.

I would certainly like to go back next time in Berlin.

Pros: tasty, good value

Cons: none

Hat sogar Omni-Familie überzeugt - Edit

Ich war mit meinen Eltern und Großeltern hier und es hat allen sehr gut gefallen. Die Atmosphäre ist etwas rustikal, aber authentisch und das Personal freundlich. Es gibt eine große Auswahl, so dass jeder etwas gefunden hat und wie mit Vor-, Haupt- und Nachspeise versorgt waren.
Kann dieses Restaurant sehr empfehlen, würde jederzeit wiederkommen. Insbesondere für Familien Besuch toll! Reservierung empfohlen

Pros: Atmosphäre, Große Auswahl, Typ Hausmannskost

Nett, lecker, wunderschöne Umgebung - Edit

Wir probierten mehrere tolle Gerichte und alles schmeckte erstaunlich "un-vegan" aber unverschämt lecker. Das Personal ist super nett und hilfsbereit. 100% zu empfehlen!

Pros: quality

Cons: a bit costly

Horrible, horrible service - Edit

Among the worst service I have ever experienced at a restaurant. There was a sign saying to wait to be seated-- we stood waiting for a good while, while waitresses (who didn't even seem that busy) just kept ignoring us, even after we said hello and they had clearly heard us. Finally we managed to talk to the guy behind the bar, who told us in a very irritated/bored way that there were no tables free inside, and it was raining outside. Didn't give any indication of how long the wait would be.

We looked around ourselves and waited a bit longer, and after some people had clearly left tried to ask a waitress if it was okay for us to sit at one of the tables which now seemed to be free. The bar guy overheard and snapped 'I just told you none were free!' Like we were idiots.

1. If you're not going to attempt to seat customers (despite the sign) or attempt to sound like you care when they ask about tables, of course they're going to try and seat themselves!

2. People leave, tables free up. That is a thing that happens. People had clearly left. We were not being idiots for asking.

3. Even if we had somehow been acting stupid, did it really merit him snapping at us like that with no provocation??

We left after this because we were so angry. Honestly, it doesn't really matter how good the food might be if the service is that awful. I really hope they improve and realise that being an all-vegan place doesn't mean they are somehow exempt from being polite to customers!

The rudest place in Berlin - Edit

If getting snapped at for no reason is your thing, then this place will meet your needs. We've never been treated anywhere this rudely anywhere in Berlin - or in any other city. As the HappyCow ambassador for Berlin, I strongly recommend avoiding this place.

Cons: extremely rude

looks like a pub for sailors, tastes like a restaurant for foodies - Edit

Try the avocado starter! Inside it looks a bit like in a pub - I'm not saying that's a bad thing, can be romantic as well, but if it's nice try the outside and relax in the garden - both is nice. :) Menu offers things that aren't served anywhere else, finally a change from the many asian options there are in the city. Try the cheese spaetzle and in any case the avocado starter! The chef is very talented and skilled, eventhough he said he isn't vegan himself he does an outstanding job.

Pros: chef, variation to many other restaurants in the city

Cons: no WiFi

Best brunch ever - Edit

Seriously the best vegan brunch in Berlin. By far. Sie haben viele, viele, verschiedene Gerichte und Alles schmeckt richtig lecker. Especially loved the tempeh, mushrooms, artichoke salad, and the potato salad. Would defintely recommend it to anyone.

Pros: Leckerleckerlecker, Guter Preis, Super Auswahl

Cons: Limited seating, but still lots of space

broad variety at the brunch - Edit

They really offer a lot for brunch! The self made seitan was amazing! Some salads were super good, some ok, guess that is personal taste. Unfortunately they haven't had that many cakes or sweets for brunch and what they had wasn't good for my taste.
The interior is like a typical German pub thus I didn't feel very comfortable. But again that is personal taste

Pros: great variety for brunch

welcoming and cosy vegan pub - Edit

The leafy beer garden at the front of Viasko is a fabulous place to while away a summer evening enjoying the delicious food. The entry's and the mains were really generous serves, great quality and variety of creatively veganised favourites. The berries and mousse desert was exquisite.
The service was also very friendly.
