A lovely little restaurant with a small menu, but in a lovely location: Restaurant Bar Brass (14. August 2022)

Finding a restaurant in Berlin I haven’t tried and which has great ratings isn’t that easy any more. Luckily, Berlin is big enough, so that you find something still. The Bar Brass was such a place. I went for a “Pisco Sour” (EUR 12.00) to start, which was definitely nice. The “bread & spread” was […]

A truly outstanding experience with flawless service: Restaurant Gärtnerei (13. August 2022)

The Restaurant Gärtnerei is listed as a Bib Gourmand in the Guide Michelin app and, personally, I understand why. I started with a “Basil Smash (Tanqueray gin, home-made basil sugar, fresh basil, fresh lemon juice)” (EUR 12.00) which was nice and full of flavour – perfect to start the dinner. As a small amuse bouche […]

When you have to pay ‘cash only’ in 2022, it makes you wonder: Restaurant Ho Lo Asia Charlottenburg (13. August 2022)

When you have to pay ‘cash only’ in 2022, it makes you wonder: Restaurant Ho Lo Asia Charlottenburg (13. August 2022)

One thing I still don’t understand is the fact that in today’s world, after Corona, you’re still not able to pay by card. At least, they tell you in the very beginning once you sit down that you can only pay cash. Still, I don’t get why you would not be able to pay by […]

A Bib Gourmand place which is supposed to also have a 1 Michelin star restaurant: Restaurant Bistro Grundschlag (12. August 2022)

A Bib Gourmand place which is supposed to also have a 1 Michelin star restaurant: Restaurant Bistro Grundschlag (12. August 2022)

The Bistro Grundschlag is listed as a Bib Gourmand restaurant in the Guide Michelin. And I’m not sure if I entirely agree. The place is relatively simple and located right next to a tennis club, which makes it, from an atmosphere-perspective, somewhat special. It also seemed like either we were a bit late or the […]

A great place for fresh seafood in central Berlin: Restaurant Funky Fisch (12. August 2022)

A great place for fresh seafood in central Berlin: Restaurant Funky Fisch (12. August 2022)

I selected the Funky Fisch since the place had good ratings on Google Maps – and I must say, rightly so. It is specialized on fish and offers fresh fish from the counter – as well as a couple of starters. I went for the “sea bream ceviche (corn, onions, mango, lemon, coriander, chilli)” (EUR […]

In the middle of nowhere but great for fish dishes: Restaurant Fisch-Haus (30. July 2022)

In the middle of nowhere but great for fish dishes: Restaurant Fisch-Haus (30. July 2022)

The very same applied as every day – it’s just not easy to find a decent restaurant at the Scharzmützelsee on a weekend. However, the Fisch-Haus is actually decent (although the name is kind of overly simple) when it comes to enjoying seafood. I went for the “marinated tuna (with cucumber, melon, yuzu-sake-espuma)” (EUR 15.00) […]

A very high-class experience with a marvellous view onto the lake: Restaurant Villa Contessa (29. July 2022)

A very high-class experience with a marvellous view onto the lake: Restaurant Villa Contessa (29. July 2022)

The number of restaurants with a high rating in the vicinity of Bad Saarow isn’t really that high. The Villa Contessa is one of them – and rightly so. Once you’re seated and have placed your order, you are brought some “bread, sea salt, and olive oil” and both the butter, and the olive oil, […]

Great breakfast at a hotel with teething issues: Restaurant Seeblick @ Precise Resort Bad Saarow (29. July 2022)

It’s approximately 10 years ago since I’ve last been to this property. Back then, it was the A-Rosa Sport & Spa Resort (see reviews here and here). During Corona, the place was closed down and was now re-opened as the Precise Resort Bad Saarow. So, naturally, I was curious to experience the place when it […]
