Cookies Cream was the pioneer of vegetarian fine dining at the time of its opening in 2007. The experimental yet pure vegetable cuisine of chef Stephan Hentschel received it ́s first Michelin star in 2017. At Cookies Cream tradition meets the future. Back in 2007, there were no recipes and no rules for a vegetarian fine dining restaurant in Berlin. So we created a cuisine of our own which is about using modern techniques of processing, as well as old knowledge of ingredients. Cookies Cream is ever changing and never the same, always true to our belief in pristine products – carefully chosen, respectfully prepared, lovingly served. We would like to inform you that your table is booked for 2,5 hours. If you’d like to stay longer, please do not hesitate to contact us.

A very memorable experience from beginning to end. The Cookies Cream team exceeded our expectations on every level - experience, service, food presentation and flavor. This is the most creative and sophisticated vegetarian restaurant we have been to. We had the 5 course tasting menu and every dish was excellent: watermelon with artichoke - Pave Blanc, cardamom, lemon; tomato tea with verbena fennel blossoms, capers, croutons (our favorite); parmesan dumplings with Perigord truffle stock pine, chives, spinach (a treat for truffle lovers); baked aubergine with Edamame, papadam, savory, onion (charred and "meaty" - just lovely); and sweet cicely with strawberries sorbet, meringue, buckwheat. The descriptions (in English) did not really do the actual dishes justice -- just dive in, enjoy and finish the special night with a selection from the excellent house schnapps selection.

Very nice hipster place without to much fancieness and shi shi. Just good food in small portions and tatooed hipster waiters. Very nice!

Wir waren schon dreimal dort, leider dieses Mal eine Enttäuschung: Service war zuerst freundlich, im laufendes Abends jedoch nicht aufmerksam und teils überheblich, Gerichte und die Weinbegleitung wurden ab Gang zwei nicht mehr erläutert, es gab keine Nachfrage, ob es geschmeckt habe. Trinkgeld wurde ohne Dank entgegen genommen. Essen war ok, jedoch auch früher kreativer, die Weinbegleitung war ein Reinfall. Leider in nächster Zeit nicht nochmal. Immerhin zahlt man auch seine 100 aufwärts pro Person und dann sollte es ein schöner Abend werden und nicht im Nachgang noch zu einem Ärgernis werden.
Schade!

Incredible food, service, and experience. Only caveat is that while the booths are nice, the chairs are far too focused on style over comfort.

This place feels like Berlin. You enter through a back alley to find a hidden gem. The food is amazing and really tasteful. And the prices are more than fair. The staff is very attentive and gives you their honest opinions about the menu. Thanks for a great dinner.

Outstanding vegetarian food, tasty, well prepared, creative. If you are too hungry, opt for a 4 course menu. Coffee: not worth ordering, though.
The restaurant makes a point to be difficult to find: sort of weird detail for such an outstanding place.

All the food was really beautiful and some of it was innovative, though few of the dishes lacked some taste. Service was friendly, but it didn't feel very personal or enthusiastic. It felt like the waitress knew "the rap", but probably not much more about the food or the wines.

Biggest problem were the paired wines. Although most of them worked ok with the food, they were not very good wines as themselves. Natural wines are trendy and I usually like them when seleted well, but their sommelier (who we didn't meet) should really be more careful. Some of the wines were too "funky", some were just bland. Only one classic riesling was something to remember, maybe they should just play it safe.

Overall, everything was "ok", but I was not happy with the value. I would expect much more for their price level and their fame.

Definitely the best vegetarian restaurant in Germany. Very creative food, non-alcoholic drink suggestion and a very special location with a absolutely cool ambiance! The service was very busy and short tailed, so there was not really time for small talk and further information about the dishes and the wine... to bad!

Zum wie immer sehr kreativen Dinner haben wir diesmal die nicht-alkoholische Verkostung gewaehlt. Das war sensationell. So gern wir auch Wein moegen, das naechste Mal im Cookies werden wir sicherlich wieder das "non-alcoholic pairing" bestellen - einfach zu gut!!! Vielen Dank ...

We didn’t know what to expect, but it was a great overall experience. We went for the five-course taster menu; four out of five dishes really impressed, the other one was nice but not as special as the other four. We ordered a separate bottle of wine, really complemented the dishes (waiter’s recommendation). Yes, it was expensive but we thought it was well worth it. Slight niggle; the 2 hour time-slot.

Came in with very high expectations due to all the wonderful reviews posted but left the restaurant feeling extremely disappointed.

The food was well plated and the male waiter who served me was professional, polite and prompt. Sadly those were the only two good things I could comment positively about.

The food was very very very salty. When I feedback about it, the response I received was that the Chef had insisted it’s cooked like this and refused to either re cook a new serving for me or allow me to replace with another dish. There was absolutely no other effort made to improve the experience. The waiter simply took back the dish that I didn’t finish eating and did not offer any compensation whatsoever.

I will never come back here and I would discourage any of my friends from ever visiting this restaurant if they visit Berlin.

The location and the decor are nice. The food is exquisite - really!
Sadly the genuine smiles of the waiters don't make up for their clumsiness, lack of tact when service or even errors on the bill. Plus the noise... my ears still bleed!
It's sad because the setting is one of a kind and the cuisine is Michelin starS level!

Pretty disappointed with this restaurant considering the hype and the fact that (we later learned) it has a Michelin star. We had the '5th Element' menu and there were too many average dishes. One stand out failure was dim sum that were totally smothered in a cauliflower foam/puree - it looked terrible and had a forgettable taste. In a restaurant like this, with the prices charged, you would expect to be 'wowed' and we were certainly not. 'Underwhelmed' was more the operative word. Also, there was not enough food, which is always a disaster in my book and leaves me annoyed. The baked aubergine dish came with an inch-cube of aubergine surrounded by sauce - it tasted good, but was simply not enough. All-in-all we would not go back or recommend, a clear case of style over substance.

Great spot if you can find it. If you are under the flashing chandelier you are close. Food is special to say the least. All vegetable based and enjoyable to say the least. Wines were outstanding too and all very different and rarely seen types. Atmosphere and soundtrack were cool as was the raw and basic décor. Service was fantastic with all the staff being very friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. As a meat eater enjoyed this and would go again.

Such a hidden gem of a restaurant. Would never have found it if we hadn’t been given instructions from a friend. Once inside the atmosphere was great & the staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the food and wine. The two of us shared the 4 course meal and every dish was a winner. So imaginative and well produced. Expensive night out but we enjoyed it immensely.
