50 Best restaurants but not the best service: Restaurant Quintonil (12. April 2017)

The Quintonil has recently been awarded as one of the 50 best restaurants of the world and given I have been to Pujol and Biko previously, I thought it’s time to try a new one. I went for the “tasting menu” (1’800 MXN) with “wine pairing” (1’385 MXN). The restaurant is rather small and reservation […]

6. September 2014: Restaurant Belcanto

Once more I used TripAdvisor as a valuable source to find a great restaurant in a city I have never been to. And once more, I was not disappointed. In order to have the full experience of José Avillez (1-starred Michelin chef), I went for their signature “Menu Lisboa” (EUR 135.00) described as “It was […]

9. August 2014: Schloss Schauenstein

UNIQUE – that is the perfect description of my experience at Schloss Schauenstein. I wanted to pay Andreas Caminada, Swiss Chef of the year and currently number 43 of the 50 best restaurants in the world, a visit already for long but finally made it happen. The table had to be booked in February to […]

11. May 2013: Restaurant Asador Etxebarri

One word to describe this “experience”: disappointment! I have been at number 11, 36 and 38 of the world and figured when I go to number 31, it should be somehow comparable but it wasn’t. For a relatively low price of EUR 125.00 (excl. VAT) the tasting menu was offered which of course I had […]

7. December 2012: Restaurant Steirereck im Stadtpark

Once more talking about expectation management – dining at the number 11 of the world (according to The World’s 50 Best Restaurants) I had very high expectations and I must admit they were not fully satisfied. After managing the most difficult part of getting a table about one month beforehand, I finally got the confirmation […]

22. August 2012: Restaurant Pujol

Being number 36 of the world is not only a question of honour but also a matter of expectation handling – and although everything was outstanding, my expectations were somehow disappointed. I decided to enjoy the “Menú de Tierra” (980 MXN) which had eight courses while my company had the seafood menu. As an amuse […]

PHANTASMAGORIAL – Original Mexican dishes served in a new and unexpected way – that is what you get at the restaurant Biko (the 38th best restaurant in the world according to TheWorlds50Best.com. When you enter, you are welcomed by the head of the restaurant which then guides you to your table. The chairs are removed […]
