I have been coming to this restaurant for years. Despite the fact that I live in Washington DC, I sometimes make Berlin my destination in order to enjoy a meal at this restaurant that has taken my heart away from the first time I ate there. Over the last 7 years of making my way to this place, I have enjoyed every single meal I have had. The creativity of this Kitchen is unreal. The Chef has mastered the joy of surprising your taste buds with a rush of flavors that will just floor you!
Did I mention the staff? The passion this team has is unreal. Every single person I met there is so dedicated to the cause and loves working there. It makes for a formidable experience. A truly unforgettable one. I will be back for sure in the not so distant future!
Amazing food! Not a vegetarian but if I could eat like this every day I would become one. Service was great and the venue is very cool. A must try.
I booked cookies and cream due to a recommendation from a friend and I was not disappointed.
Beautifully exquisite food without the stuffy fine dining atmosphere.
Attentive wait staff and a great ambience. Couldn’t be more impressed. The set menu and wine pairing was perfection.
Cookies Cream was a suprise: from location, the way you reach it, what you find inside, the atmosphere and in the end the amazing food. Is a place you would expect in Berlin and in the same time totally unexpected. The set up is uber cool, the stuff super friendly and cool dressed and he food is wow. They have a great wine pairing selection for the degustation menu. In the end try the digestives options and coffee. I would for sure return. Great value for money! Loved it!
Good to very good vegetarian food. The 'caviar' was great. Excellent cocktails. Very attentive service (once you find the entrance to the place). The ambience is between sparse and spartan - not matching the price. As much as I cherish the idea of vegetarian fine dining, I am not in a hurry to return.
Food was artfully created and very tasty. Staff was friendly. Warm ambience. The rhubarb crumble I had was the best ever and I do not have a sweet tooth.
Was looking forward to it and it didn’t disappoint. Excellent food, friendly knowledgeable staff, great setting. Wonderful experience.
Amazing... the staff were great and the food was incredible
A gem hidden behind dirty industrial buildings, inside wonderful interior, great food, outstanding friendly service; berlin chic at it's best!
A wonderful experience from the moment you start looking for the restaurant until when you leave. The best restaurant I've been to in my life.
Immer wieder sehr gut. Den Stern haben sie gut verdaut . Nicht vergleichbar-und dadurch vielleicht auch für manche enttäuschend- mit klassischen Sterneläden. Einfach cooler und unsteif. Deshalb sollten" Astrologen"sich vorher informieren, ob sie sich da einlassen können und wollen. Krawatte auf jeden Fall daheim lassen.
I booked a few nights in Berlin just to visit Cookies (because it featured on a UK TV food programme) and was not disappointed. We’re still buzzing from the experience. We went for the wine pairing option and would strongly advise this as we found this an unexpected highlight. The staff were incredible and I want to publicly thank them for their attention to detail and treating us like VIPs; as I’m sure they do for all their diners.
Cookies is definitively a hate or love location. We love! Once you found it behind the service entrance of a Hotel you immediately jump into a nightclub- industry style location and ambience. Shabby chic, noisy, active, vibrant and dynamic with very competent, friendly and efficient service. The rather financially stronger clientele is smart casual or leisure style dressed and uncomplicated.
Food is original to really great compositions - try the outstanding false caviar, vegetarian only (vegetables and fruits, no soja, rice, noddles etc.).
Comprehensive but high class wine selection - the Pouilly Fumé ladoucette is a dream-, digestives and aperitifs.
Allow 75-150€ per person including 3 or 4 course menu, wine, drinks, coffee etc. A price perfectly justified for a out of common dining experience...
We’ll make this a permanent place when visiting Berlin :-)
Flavours were wonderful and blended to perfection. Choice of wines for each dish were well selected. Not a great lover of schnapps but their beetroot schnapps was unbelievable - very smooth and enjoyable. Thanks for a great meal and a great time. We'll certainly be back.
Der Eingang war fast unmöglich zu finden; das Essen war sehr einfach zugerichtet und des (recht hohen) Preises absolut nicht wert. Das Ambiente war okay, nicht besonders gemütlich oder romantisch.
Einzig positiv ist der Service zu bewerten - unsere Bedienung was sehr nett und professionell.
A top restaurant , great food, great service. We enjoyed every moment. It was the first time we were in a vegetarian restaurant, which was a very nice experience.
excellent in every way! delicious food, excellent servers, wonderful ambiance. look forward to going again on my next visit to berlin. highly recommended!
Insgesamt eine tolle Erfahrung. Super Service, raffiniert angerichtete vegetarische Spezialitäten. Versteckt im Hinterhof, wo man kein Sterne-Restaurant vermutet.
Die Preise sind noch ok.
How can a vegetarian restaurant have a michelin star?
Come and see.
Great Vegetarian Food! Really worth a visit! For Berlin very friendly staff. Also the hidden entrance is quite fun!
Immer wieder sensationell. Wir kommen wieder. Waren zu sechst essen. Die anderen vier zum ersten Mal. Sie waren alle begeistert.
Nice hidden restaurant serving vegetarian food.
Sadly, I must report that we (6) were disappointed by our time spent at Cookies Cream. Though the food, all vegetarian, is really good, all other aspects of the experience fell short, particularly the service. The overall impression of the establishment was that it was "too cool for school"- a hidden entrance, immediate and repeated attempts to up-sell beverages, unending throbbing music(?) and more attention given to refilling wine and water glasses (emptying bottles so that we would buy another bottle?) than to timely delivery of food left us puzzled about the many rave reviews we read on line.
Immer super, aber vor allem das Blaubeer-Sellerie-Sorbet war dieses Mal der Hammer!
The staff seemed a bit rushed/stressed when we arrived, but nothing that affected us too much. As the night went on, things slowed down and the staff seemed to mellow out and interact more with us, which was nice. I’m a waitress myself, so I know how things can get stressful, but it would have been nice for things to be more chilled out upon arriving at the table. Super sweet staff in general. <3 LOVED the food and wine. Thank you for an amazing night.
The superlatives flow off the tongue, an amazing recommendation by the hotel concierge. Allowing for how difficult it was to find the restaurant, it was well worth the hunt. The ambience was very relaxed and welcoming but professional. The quality of the food was second to none, what the chefs have achieved in terms of bringing together various aspects of vegetarian food is unbelievable. All 3 courses were brilliant, my wife and I couldnt have asked for more. Additionally, the quality of the service was exceptional, we were so well looked after throughout that you didn't realise where the time had gone. We weren't hurried at all, able to take our time, have conversations with various members of the team - you felt quite at home. In summary, a great restaurant, definitely deserves the 5 stars in all categories, would recommend without question.
Sehr gutes Essen.... Aber die Klimaanlage war defekt....
Visiting Berlin from South Florida, and not interested in the tourist restaurants, this was a breath of fresh air. I was able to find refreshing vegetarian dishes while my husband could select from a variety of meat and non-meat dishes. Thank you!!!
It was the third or fourth time over some years in the cookies. This time I was not positive. It is still a spot to have some good vegetarian food. But the whole atmosphere and the service can be characterized with the German word “abfüttern”. The food was not that special any more. Again you can have good vegetarian food but for what the cookies offers now it is far too expensive.
Perfect moment at cookies cream, hard to find but very nice place, friendly service, excellent and tasty food
Excellent all round
Best restaurant in Berlin
Almost perfect. Great venue, great food, good wine and great service. Felt the black currant in the cookie dessert was a little overpowering, apart from that excellent and would go back
The concept was really good, but we regretted to order slices of avocado with caviar and sauce. Everything had hazelnuts and that was killing other flavors.
Besides, we were a little anxious about the waiter pouring the water as if we were in a hurry to finish the bottle. It was stressing us quite a bit
Geweldige (vegetarische) restaurant! Zeker een aanrader voor mensen die houden van mooie gebalanceerde gerechten met intense en verassende smaken, zeker niet alleen voor vegetariërs. Tip: pak zeker ook de geadviseerde bijpassende wijnen, niks standaards.
Great restraurant! Fresh, delicious and innovative food creations ( my whole family consisting of 3 different generations agreed). Prices are reasonable, atmosphere is down to earth and cozy. We found the hidden location quite amusing. The staff is friendly and very professional and gave us a warm welcome. Thank you! Will definitely go back.
Das geschmackvolle Eingangskonzept mit tollem, leider wenig belebtem Barbereich, aber sehr gutem Champagner „machte Laune“, das lässig-zwanglose, manchmal gegen Regeln arbeitende Auftreten der Service-Menschen im Hipster-Style war angenehm und erfrischend. Wein und die Kompositionen der Speisen waren sehr lecker. In den Jahren hat der Charme zwar etwas gelitten, aber wir kommen immer wieder in Freude.
Hoewel ik al de nodige reviews had gelezen en dus voorbereid zou moeten zijn op de maffe (bijna niet te vinden) entree, was het toch behoorlijk zoeken en vervolgens een complete verrassing! Je denkt bij de vuile hotelwas-uitgang terecht te komen maar het Michelin-mannetje stelt je gerust...de rest moet je zelf ervaren. Geweldig gegeten met bijzondere wijnen en voor m'n disgenoot spannende non-alcohol drinks. Aanrader!!!
Das Essen war vorzüglich. Und die Damen und Herren vom Service überaus freundlich und aufmerksam. Wir kommen gern wieder.
Zumal wir beim 2. Besuch die Gaststätte gleich finden werden, was uns beim ersten Besuch nicht gelang, wo wir glaubten auf der Hinterbühne der Komischen zu landen. Oder in einer der Sängergarderobern
( Irgend ein kleiner Hinweis wäre doch nicht aufdringlich.)
Para mi gusto es un restaurante muy caro para la cantidad de comida que sirven. La comida estaba bastante buena y los camareros bastante agradables, pero nuestra experiencia no fue buena ya que la información facilitada por los camareros sobre el funcionamiento de los menús no fue correcta. El local es bastante ruidoso y de forma general no considero que valga lo que cuesta.
