We decided to splurge a little since we were towards the end of our two week trip around Germany and this was by far the best meal I've had in Germany! The following enhanced our experience there:

1. A friendly greeting and handshake at the door by a very charming waiter made us feel like we were being warmly invited into a friend's home;

2. The lovely brick walls and wax candle reminded me of a cosy restaurant in Spain, or Italy, or Portugal;

3. Fresh bread served with a garlic sauce I could not get enough of;

4. Delicious shrimp being served with flames of fire (yes I like these little fun tricks);

5. Amazing live music - just a man with a fantastically deep and melodious voice with his guitar;

6. The lack of a menu raised my sense of curiosity and consequently my expectations for the meal; and

7. To top it all off, the rose that was presented as we left the restaurant.

It cost approximately €60 per pax for a three course meal (sharing a bottle of white wine). Not the cheapest restaurant, but worth every cent!

Very good restaurant in the portuguese District. There is no possibility to choose menu but what they cook is delicious and perfectly mixed. Free alcohol shots and amazing atmosphere. Very friendly weiters. Only disappointed by their own wine price, 8.5€ for a glass.

Went for dinner here yesterday. There is no menu but a proposed 3 (43€)or 4 course menu with fish or meat. The restaurant was packed and the whole concept is about entertaining you. The food was excellent, but the atmosphere very loud and chaotic and there is little personal attention...nothing if you want to have a romantic dinner, but probably great for groups

Special concept “no menu” suggests surprise, we have got delicious fish dishes and kids amazing steaks, desserts and wine was great.
But bit slow service.

This place has a fixed 3 or 4 course meal.
It feels a bit too much like an assembly line going through the motions. Staff is very friendly but they seem to get quickly overwhelmed and we ended up waiting and waiting at every step of the meal.
Despite detailed Questions about the cooking of the meat it ended up more than well done...but overall a fun experience.
