A vegetarian restaurant, free from all veggie clichés. There are no dogmas here, rather a relaxed casualness. This starts with the interior: washed, white concrete pillars, benches with a raspberry fabric (wonderfully comfortable), warm light and the highlight: an open kitchen, which gives the guests a view over the shoulder of the cooks.
Chef Stephan Henschel is known throughout Germany for his outstanding vegetarian creations. “No hocus-pocus, we already have enough of that anyway. My creations are absolutely unorthodox, honest and worthy of the peculiar taste of the vegetables and wild herbs.“
The fact that vegetarian cuisine has made the leap to the gourmet gastronomy is felt in every single square meter of COOKIES CREAM.
The food was not great and the service a bit slow
One of the best vegetarian restaurants in Berlin. Outstanding food and wine.
Perfect combinations between wines and food. Wonderful presentations.
The food was great, I liked every course! The wine wasn't quite as much my taste, but wasn't bad either. The only thing that lets me give it 4 instead of 5 stars is that personally it's a bit too self important for me, trying a bit too hard to be special. Which is not necessary because it is special - both the restaurant itself and the food were great. So take it down a notch guys, and relax. You're great!
Typischer Berliner Flair! Schon die Ankunft war mit Spannung erfüllt, da wir vor verschlossener Tür standen und erst die Glocke läuten mussten. Tolles Service, wunderbare Gerichte, hervorragende Weinbegleitung! Definitiv sehr empfehlenswert!
We came to the restaurant having discovered that our opera performance was an hour earlier than anticipated.
The team went out of their way to ensure that we were served and on our way with class and elegance.
The food was innovative and outstanding.
A gem of a restaurant, desire being not easy to find
Great place, great service and fantastic food. I'll definitely be back soon.
we liked it very much although the vines could have a betrer selection.
Cool location, excellent food brilliantly served, perfect service. Highly recommended!
Everything was an experience in this restaurant from the entrance throughout the food ... will definitely come back again
War alles 5-Sterne - mir persönlich hat der Hauptgang nicht 100% gemundet- das ist aber eine persönliche Einschätzung. Vielen Dank für den schönen Abend
Hidden but lovely place. Delicious food and adorable staff. Would totally recommend it !
Ungezwungen und lässig. Der Service prompt, aufmerksam. Insgesamt auch aufgrund der hervorragenden Küche immer einen Besuch wert. Wenn wir in Berlin sind , kommen wir gerne wieder.
Ausgezeichnet! Das Essen war wirklich was besonderes.
We had a horrible dinning experience here. The food was very overpriced for the very very small portions and the staff was rude.
Servers were very friendly but there was hardly any time in between courses and we generally felt rushed. Not a nice feeling, especially not when you're spending a good amount of money. Food was nice but slightly underwhelming.
Obwohl in Berlin-Mitte, ist der Zugang versteckt und beim ersten Mal nicht leicht zu finden.
Die Vorspeisen und die Weine waren gut, der Hauptgang mittel.
Der vor mehren Wochen reservierte Tisch hatte einen Sitzplatz im Durchgang - sogar der Service ist gegen meinen Stuhl gelaufen.
Endlich ein vegetarisches Restaurant - sehr erfreulich!. Die Erwartungen waren hoch, wurden aber leider nicht erfüllt, da die Soßen nicht so kreativ waren, es keine amuse bouche gab - was man auf diesem Niveau erwarten darf - , die Bedienung auf unsere konstruktiver Kritik sehr unprofessionell/unhöflich reagierte und der Geräuschpegel im Restaurant das Unterhalten am Tisch erschwert.
Hippe Location, immerhin mit kreativer vegetarischer Küche, aber durchaus mit Potential zur Verbesserung. Erwartungen nicht erfüllt.
The food was amazing, the service was great. I was only a bit disappointed that I wrote on the reservation sheet that we just got engaged and were celebrating our anniversary and nobody cared. Not even a “congrats”. I don’t understand why there is the option to name the event and then don’t do anything about it. So probably won’t celebrate something as big there again.
A positively mediocre experience if only considering the food. Proving with force that the bar is set particularly low in Berlin. If the focus on aesthetics of the dish matched the food itself, then it may well be something worth celebrating but sadly the food lacked any real flavour at all. An overall, bland and boring selection of overpriced plates with the inclusion of one main that was so acidic that it was bordering on inedible. Overall, a wildly overhyped restaurant that caters more the idea of excellence than the execution of such.
Interesting location for a restaurant. Everything is going very fast. Nice for people in a hurry, not for us. We had 4 courses and were an hour and a half in the restaurant. Very little wine. The food was not much. It is not nice to pay 200 euro and leave with a hungry feeling... We felt dissapointed.
Insgesamt alles sehr gut.
Empfang am Eingang sollte verbessert werden - Garderobe schwierig.
Geräuschkulisse etwas anstrengend.
Speisen (4-Gang Menü) hervorragend - absolut empfehlenswert.
Preis-Leistung für Speisen gut.
Bedienung sehr freundlich.
Hinweisschilder im Außenbereich empfehlenswert.
Had a fabulous dinner here. The food was innovative and delicious. Quite pricey but a real experience!
Some dishes were great, others seasoned too intense or not enough. Nice for a one time try.
Für Vegetarier gibt es keine bessere Adresse in Berlin. Spannendes Menü und ein Service, der stets präsent ist und sich bestens auskennt.
Wunderbar! This was very fun. The vegetarian caviar is a must.
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,
Went here by myself to experience Berlin vegetarian fine dining. Was very impressed with overall taste and quality. Service was exceptional as well, despite the late night reservation.
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.
