After being confused about the entrance of the restaurant (the entrance looks like the entrance of a factory, and when you open the door, there is not official person welcoming you to the restaurant, and there is no sign that says "this is a restaurant" - rather, it looks more like a bar, and there is a sign that indicates the space is a bar), we opened the door, and saw that people were hanging up their coats on their own. So my partner and I hung up our coats and made our way to the bartender, still confused about whether this place was the actual restaurant or if this was just the bar, and the restaurant was somewhere else. (!!) Fortunately, this WAS the restaurant, and we were directed to go upstairs to the dining space.
The space is a good mix of grunge (especially the unfinished, exposed ceiling) and officially restaurant decor - although the white table clothes seem more like a humorous element rather than something desired, especially mixed with the big "Ficken" wall art.
The food - all vegetarian - was incredible. Each course was incredibly prepared and assembled, flavorful, colorful and/or subtle in aesthetic, imaginative, and satisfying. We devoured each bite. The bread came with a side of cottage cheese mixed with herbs, which was a delightful surprise. The non-alcoholic cocktail and the regular cocktail we ordered both had complex flavors that were balanced, and the non-alcoholic pairing that we took with the meal came with drinks ranging from subtle to powerful flavor punches, all of which paired perfectly with the courses.
My favorite course was the vegetarian caviar. Two eggs - one black and one golden - were filled with layers of savory elements: creams, yolk, crunchy garnish, potato, etc ... The black egg was topped with a "caviar" made of seaweed, and the golden egg topped with shaved yolk. It was suggested to mix the contents of each egg per bite, and it worked perfectly. We highly recommend this hip, healthy restaurant, and will return!!
Totally worth it! The food was outstanding, really something special! Great experience!
Got the tip from somebody who comes from Berlin. Well, best tip ever. Great evening. Especially the location is awkward which makes it even greater. Amazing food, great service, nice guy, lovely wine, beautiful dishes. Coming back soon I hope.
I thought the food was okay, we had the four course menu with wine for each course. One of the wines was corked, it smelt and tasted like old dishwater and should never have been served. They replaced the wine after agreeing it was bad. When I came to paying the bill the waiter asked "Shall I put the tip on the card?". A waiter should never ask this!. I wouldn't go back. I had better food the following day somewhere else for a fraction of the price.
Tolles Erlebnis.......... gerne wieder............................................................................!
Soooo lecker, ein wunderschöner Abend mit toller Gastfreundschaft - sehr zu empfehlen !!!!
Personal in jedem Bereich sehr freundlich, kompetent,
We had dinner here on a Saturday night. The food was really, really delicious, creative and pleasent. I did not even miss meat at any point. Service was friendly, attentive but relaxed. Great experience!
Es war ein hervorragendes vegetarisches Essen sehr kreative Geschmäcker dazu hervorragenden Weinbegleitung und sehr freundliche Service wir haben uns rundherum sehr wohl gefühlt und den Abend genossen
Fantastic food and great service, excellent food and a fantastic place to people watch
Fantastic. A real gem of very good vegetarian dining in Berlin.
Had the 4course with wine pairing and the flavours, variety of colour and service was divine.
Special mention to the parmesan dumplings which were a glorious treat in the cold weather.
Thank you Cookies Cream.
Overpriced for what you get! Main three parmesan balls in a sauce. Dissapointing wine. We left hungry but wih a bill of 230 euro! The only positive i can say about it is the nice location.
simply WOOOOW. Delicious food and wines. Professional Service at highest level. Whenever I travel to Berlin it is a must.
Having not been there really means a lack of expirience
Speakeasy-style gourmet restaurant. Incredible vegetarian/vegan food, with beautiful presentation.
I don't go out often with my partner, but when we do, I want it to be special. Cookies Cream is definitely extraordinary. We fell in love with the place, the food and the staff and will definitely come back and tell or bring friends.
Auch wenn Cookies über die Jahre immer bekannter geworden ist, ist es sich seit seinen Anfängen treu geblieben. Bis auf ein paar "Klassikern", wie die Parmesanknödel, die hoffentlich immer auf der karte bleiben werden, geht das Experimentieren mit neuen Rezepten weiter und gestaltet den Besuch immer neu bei gleichbleibend hoher Qualität. Wir leben nicht in Berlin, kommen aber seit fast 10 jahren immer wieder regelmässig nach Berlin und dann auch immer wieder ins Cookies. Private und berufliche Abendessen mit Freunden und Geschäftspartnern waren immer erfolgreich und haben allen Spass gemacht, was natürlich auch am aufmerksamen, kompetenten und sehr nettem Personal liegt. Wir können Cookies nur empfehlen.
Die Atmosphäre war super. Das Essen wurde auf tollen Tellern präsentiert und die Mitarbeiter dort sind alle super (aufmerksam, freundlich, relaxed)!
excelent vegetarien food and very friendly, helpful and professiona service
What an amazing hidden gem. Almost couldn’t find our way in but so glad we did. Vegan / Vegetarian Michelin quality perfection without making a big fuss about it. Fabulous wine paired menus with most unusual wine choices. The whole evening was magical. Staff fabulous knowledgable and helpful. Would be my go to special occasion restaurant whenever in Berlin. Must book.
Die Esssenz! Mega! Vorspeise und Nachtisch gut.
Unfriendly bartender. However unfriendly, he makes a nice cocktails. The waiters on the other hand were nice, but couldn't make up for the food. Little portions and not at all tasteful. Not worth the price you have to pay. I looked forward to our visit, but went home totally disappointed. I don't understand how this restaurant got a star.
Very good veg food. Very Berlin place. A must!
Not my first visit and not my last either. Unusual and tasty food combos accompanied by the perfect wine matching. It is an experience rather than a 'big night out'. Our waiter was exceptionally well informed and he made our night with food chat. This is, of course, a foodies' heaven.
Vegetarisches Restaurant mit tollen Essen, Service ist gut, aber in der Kategorie muss noch eine Schippe raufgelegt werden. Restaurant ist sehr schwer zu finden
good food and great staff. A gastronomic experience!
Please don’t be put off by the name. This is likely the best restaurant in Berlin. And don’t worry about CC being vegan/vegetarian - the food is incredible: order the 4 course tasting menu. Without pretension Cookies Cream serves up unique tastes of foods you think you know. For instance, a starter of avocado with caviar (vegan).
Service is efficient and casual. Servers and staff clearly are dedicated to the restaurant. This is a meal memory to be savored for a long time. Highly recommend Cookies Cream.
Yes, it’s down an alley behind the Westin Hotel and enter via a loading dock - but you gotta love the flashing chandelier in the alley; arrive early and order a cocktail from the bar - relax, enjoy, and get ready for a food adventure!
Just lovely!!! Great , Beautiful food. Nice place.
Perfekt! Cool und super gemütlich. Einfallsreiche außergewöhnliche Küche um die Geschmacksnerven zu inspirieren.
Cookies Cream is easily deserving of their Michelin star. The obscure location and décor complimented the amazing food, which left us full and very satisfied. Some of us had the wine pairings and some had the non-alcoholic pairing, both were very tasty. Either way, the drink pairings are well thought out and worth a try. Highly recommended!
I just love this restaurant! Incredible service, amazing food and a great evening every time.
Natürlich Essen auf höchstem Niveau. Auch wenn es das Konzept ist: die schnoddrige Art, mit dem Gast umzugehen (Arm auf die Schulter legen, mit beiden Händen auf den Tisch abstützen, etc.) passt einfach nicht...
we took the menu and each dish was wonderful, creative and excellent.
avocado with hazelnut mushroom and algiacaviar( caviar ade from seeweit)
The whole menu was vegetarian, some dishes vegan.
we would definitely come back
Delicious food beautifully and creatively prepared. You can opt for a fixed four course menu or a la carte three or four courses. Perfect for a party of vegetarians, but non-vegetarians will also enjoy this place. Do your homework and study from their website how to find the restaurant as it is not easy!
We were not disappointed by our dinner at Cookies Cream -- ambience, service and food quality were all excellent.
Beautiful and delicious food and great service. Excellent choice for a special occasion.
This was a fabulous evening, really unique location and environment. Attentive staff who explained the menu in English to us, fabulous four course menu, followed by a quince schnapps. Will definitely go back if I return to Berlin
Der Kellner hat uns direkt damit begrüßt, dass er bei unterschiedlichen Menüfolgen Dir Weinbegleitung nicht schaffen kann.
Evtl. Lag es daran, dass er auch nicht viel zu den Weinen wüsste.
Essen war ok. Essence war sehr gut.
Preis/Leistung passte für uns nicht.
Besonders die Gastgeber waren so extremfreundlich und herzlich, dass wir noch tagelang davon gesprochen haben.
Viele Dank für den schönen Abend!
It was a wow. Totally different from the norm, was really uneasy about the back street alley way, then ring the bell into the unknown, most odd but really atmospheric, all adds to the story as it’s so unexpected. We thought we were walking into a brothel, but as soon as we went upstairs to the restaurant it was a different story. Fabulous darling, simply fabulous!
So glad we got to experience Cookies Cream, the attention to detail was second to none, service impeccable. We went to Kopps the next night, lovely, but not quite the same!
Leider, die Weine sind viel zu teuer. Qualität Preis Leistung stimmt nicht.
