We didn't particularly like the 'Seitan-Hackbraten in Champignon-Sahnesauce' - the 'Hackbraten' was also rather bland. The mash and beans were nice. The Gnocchi and 'Flammkuchen' were also nothing special. The best of the mains we had was probably the Gyros meal.
The desserts were good - except for the cakes (EUR 2.30) though over-priced (EUR5<).
Generally I can't say if this was particularly good vegan food or not. Going by value for money in ordinary places (meat dishes included) this would be at the lower end. The food wasn't tasty enough for the price tags (mains EUR 8-13).
I wouldn't go here again, but then again I'm not vegan.
this place is great! sure, it’s a different sort of meal than you will get at la mano verde or cookies-cream, but that’s the point – it was started by La Mano Verde’s old chef who wanted to try a different, lower-key style of restaurant. (You will also pay about a third of what you’d pay at those places for dinner at Viasko). it’s not, nor is it trying to be, ‘haute-cuisine’ but it’s still really delicious, nicely-flavored, somewhat hearty food.
not to be rude but disregard the other two English reviews :)
this place is just amazing. went there with my girlfriend who is not a vegan or vegetarian and it was seriously one of the best meals i had in a restaurant (regardless of the whole veggie part). me and my girlfriend had:
hot coco :) (dont look at me like that its 5 degrees and ill have as much hot coco as i want!)
cauliflower soup with croutons - just perfect and creamy
Avocado Tofu Canapé - Divine. its funny how they call all tofu tofu as if they are all the same (yet they dont call all meat just meat). well this "tofu" slice that they put on the avocado and beneath the tomato is delicious. not that gello tofu you get sometimes which has a terrible texture, but instead a fine "meaty" texture with a crispy crust and with great flavour.
Panini something - cant remember the exact name they gave it. roasted bread very nice and crunchy with avocado, pesto, Zucchini, tomato and some other things with a little green salad on the side. basically a delicious sandwich that i cant compare to anything else cause it was a whole new flavour for me.
smoked tofu and vegetable ragout - again that word tofu. they really should start giving these different treatments different names. anyway this dish had cinnamon which i cant stand but the rice was that comes with it is cocked with a hint of lemon and some herbs to perfection. the mushrooms were roasted down to a crunchy kind of chicken flavoured fries and my girlfriend, who ate the rest of the dish, kept making sounds and faces that i could never get her to do...
mousse something (sorry again... cant remember but there are 3 deserts and only one of them is a mousse) - this is just perfect. i can try to describe and to talk about the perfect texture and the amazing combination with the fresh raspberry sauce that came with it... but just forget about it. even if your not hungry go in and get the mousse.
service - great and friendly everything came in good timing.
price - 37 euro which i think is cheap for this kind of meal (thats 18 euros each for a 3 course meal with beer and we took food we couldnt finish home with us).
Normally I wouldn't leave a negative review, but this place has such a high rating that I feel compelled to add my opinion. It’s true that service staffs are competent and kind, but I thought the food was disappointingly average. Nothing we tried was really exciting. The waitress recommended the gnocchi’s with smoked tofu, we found them over salted and over spiced, my friend ordered the “vegan” spaghetti Bolognese, over cooked and again to much spices in the sauce. The dessert we choose was yummy, a kind of chocolate mousse with chocolate bits. This place is probably great when you starve for vegan food and are looking for a good deal, but for a nice and sophisticated dinner I will recommend Cookies-Cream (next to Westin Grand Hotel) or La Mano Verde in Mitte.
Cantina style restaurant and beer garden, food is average, kind of home cooking quality, very heavy. The service is good but the waitress is over doing it. The prices are fair, very similar to Hans Wurst prices (another veggie hub in Prenzlauer Berg). I overheard the barman or manager telling a customer that the cook was previously cooking at La Mano Verde, hard to believe… maybe just the wrong day!
