Decent dishes but absolutely unsatisfactory service: Restaurant Belvoirpark (21. April 2018)

I have heard quite a bit about the Restaurant Belvoirpark which is basically the place where young talented chefs become great chefs and apprentices become great waiters. However, after this experience I’m not so sure about the waiters anymore. I was there in the context of a Chaîne des Rôtisseurs event and quite curious to […]

Rich food but weak service: Restaurant Hato (18. April 2018)

Rich food but weak service: Restaurant Hato (18. April 2018)

Truly horrible service with decent dishes is the best way to summarize the experience at the Restaurant Hato. At first, upon arrival, things were still fine. I was brought to the table in a friendly manner and the waiter took my order to bring sparkling water to the table which appeared quite rapidly. The “Edamame […]

Patience needed to deal with the limited efficiency: Restaurant Bären (16. April 2018)

Upon arrival I was already wondering a bit what to expect of the place and sometimes first impressions really give away quite a bit.When you’re welcomed, everything is kind of inefficient – starting with the seating process, bringing the menu, taking up the order and then finally bringing the drinks. The “Pizza Napoli (tomatoes, olives, […]

Tibetan ‘momo’ dumplings in a tiny, crowded place: Restaurant Tenz Momo (15. April 2018)

Tibetan ‘momo’ dumplings in a tiny, crowded place: Restaurant Tenz Momo (15. April 2018)

The Restaurant Tenz Momo offers exactly one type of dish (and some salads) which are ‘mom0’. You wonder what ‘momo’ are? Momo are Tibetan dumplings. Not sure how exactly they are different from other dumplings as in terms of consistency they are rather similar to ‘regular Asian’ dumplings.  I went for the “vegan version (dried […]

Mouth-watering flavour combinations with a technical service fail: Restaurant Dae Mon (14. April 2018)

Mouth-watering flavour combinations with a technical service fail: Restaurant Dae Mon (14. April 2018)

It took me a little while until I realized that the name of the restaurant Dae Mon was ‘daemon’ in English. Well, lack of sleep doesn’t help in connecting the dots. I went for the “Vegetarian 4-course tasting menu” (EUR 51.00) which is worth every penny. The amuse bouche started with a chip which was […]

Berlin and friendly service are definitely antonyms: Restaurant Brasserie Ganymed (13. April 2018)

Sometimes I really wonder if restaurants just don’t want to make any business. I mean, being a waiter is for sure not always a great job, and being bossed around by customers can definitely become annoying at some point in time. However, frankly speaking, if you are uncomfortable with this, maybe care to do another […]

Lovely ravioli with a butter sage sauce: Restaurant MASI Wine Bar (12. April 2018)

The Restaurant MASI Wine bar remains a favorite of mine for a quick and good lunch. The place is always crowded so it makes sense to book your table in advance. The service is jovial yet friendly and professional. The lunch offering is usually very reasonable in price but today I went for the “Mozzarella […]
