27. June 2014: Restaurant Nikki Beach

| July 9, 2014 | 0 Comments

Well, I am not enitrely sure how to describe my experience at Nikki Beach – it was a bit of a mixed experience. But let’s start with the simple things first. I decided to try a typical dish and went for the “Nikki Beach Signature Plate” (An Appetizer Sampling Platter including Spinach and Artichoke Dip, Pata Negra Bruschetta, Tuna Tostada and the Sexy Salad (A Luscious Mixture of Lobster, Shrimp, Crab Meat, Kani Kama, Avocado, Mango, Cucumbers and Tobiko mixed with a Spicy Lime Mayonnaise)) (EUR 24.00). The spinach and artichoke dip was fine but due to the fact that it was covered with cheese you had to be pretty quick in order to be able to “dip” it. The “Pata Negra Bruschette” were quite fine as the bread was nicely toasted and the pata negra flavourful. My favourite was the “tuna tostada” as it was a nice crunchy tostada with refreshing lime and onions while the chilis provided a lovely spiciness and last but not least the tuna was of fair quality. Now, I was obvisouly curious how this “signature dish sexy salad” was and it was definitely a good one – but I guess “sexy” is a bit of a stretch. The quality of the seafood in the salad was matching perfecltly with the sauce though.


Next in line were the “Nikki Beach Wagyu Beef Sliders (Three Mini Wagyu Beef Sliders topped with Provolone Cheese, Lettuce and our Special House Sauce served with Waffle Cut Fries)” (EUR 25.00). While the meat was nicely medium grilled and the sauce was rich the burgers had somehow a mismatch of bread and meat making the whole thing a bit too dry for my personal taste. The French Fries on the other hand were absolutely tasty and matched perfectly with the sauce. What is definitely a rip-off though is the fact that they charged and extra EUR 3.00 for an additional little bowl of sauce.


So, so far my experiecne is nothing too confusing as overall the food was quite okay – and it doesn’t change with yet another “signature product” of Nikki Beach, the “Nikki Beach World Famous Mojito (Plenty of Lemon Rum mixed with Sugar, Fresh Mint and Tangy Lime)” (EUR 14.00) as it was rich, strong but a bit small. What was a bit of a stretch were the EUR 8.00 for a simple bottle of water though – almost Zurich-like prices.


The atmosphere at Nikki Beach is perfect – everything is held in white and dark wood and is perfectly stylish combination. For some reason though, it does not only attract “stylish people” – which was confirmed once I had left Nikki Beach as a Mercedes AMG car with a large “make your own porn movie” sticker on the back was parked there (and I later saw these not so stylish people in that exact car).


However, if you are able to see past that and just enjoy okay food in a very nice atmosphere with generally good service, Karolina L did a good job there, and you are a bit into “seeing and being seen” then Nikki Beach is the perfect place to.


So, to sum it up, fine food, good service, great atmosphere, a bit of a weird crowd, and somehow a bit steep prices for what you get – but definitely pleasant to go here and enjoy your lunch.
