THE IDEA. Located in Rathaus Neuköln, La Malo is a French café-restaurant and natural wine shop/bar founded by Pierre Lejeune, former chef of Prinzessinengarten , wine lover and the person behind Des Quilles à Berlin (a natural wine importing company). Our seasonal cuisine is made with 100% organic products and influenced by Mediterranean-French food and vegetarian style with experimentation on fermented products, flowers, herbs, bakery... and much more! The idea behind La Malo is to create a neo-bistrot around natural wines, a warm atmosphere and good food !
THE WINES. “Natural”, “raw”, “naked”, “non-sulphited”, “vivants”... You can call it however you want, the spirit is still the same: organically grown wines, made with low-intervention by craft winemakers. As all our wines are directly sourced from wineries, our selection is unique, affordable and wide: whether you’re an amateur or a novice, we’ll find you the proper wine!

Wunderbares Essen. Kreative Auswahl an kleinen Speisen, sehr fein und aromatisch, dazu frisches Brot und Weinempfehlungen (man kann verschiedene probieren). Die Bedienung ist sehr freundlich und aufmerksam, das Ambiente ist sehr gemütlich. Ich komme immer gerne wieder.

Es hat komisch gerochen & service war unfassbar schlecht. Außerdem hat alles ewig gedauert und das essen kam nicht gleichzeitig. Es war eine ziemlich schlechte Erfahrung!

Nice little restaurant, chilled service (slow for some?) - we ordered 2 wines and got only 1, was ok though, no drama. the cremant is excellent! Food is good, simple and tasty.
Slight damp / mildew smell, if you are sensitive with odours, avoid.
overall, a pleasant evening.

Bad mouldy basement smell. Must be fixed immediately.
Very tired owner leaves dishes at the table in passing without a comment.
Main dish served stone cold, and when this was pointed out, we were asked if we wanted it heated (!) It was late and we were hungry. Dish was returned half hot, half stone cold.

The wines were delicious.

This place has some good ideas, but in dire need of some serious love and attention!

Great Evening! The spelt and vegetable dish was so comforting! Really surprised and happy to find La Sagesse from Gramenon by the glass! Smooth service despite a busy night.

Food and wine was great, but the wait for our main dishes was really long. So much so that they comped one of our meals. I'd come back for wine, but maybe not for dinner.

Pretty disappointed they had a special event for Bastille day that night that resulted in a diminished menu offering. If they could have told us beforehand, then we could have made other plans for food. The melon was rediculously overpriced and the pisaladiere left much to be desired. The fries were fine but the mayo + ketchup were homemade, fresh and tasty. The service was lackluster and unattentive. The wines were the highlight of the evening. I will definitely go back for wine and will have to see about the food...

Ein kleines Café/Restaurant mit minimalistischer und dennoch einladender Einrichtung. Sind hier vor dem Kinobesuch eingekehrt und haben ein leckeres und ungewöhnliches Abendessen eingenommen. beim nächsten Mal werden wir dann auch den Wein testen.

Excellent dining experience, easily one of the very best restaurants here in neukölln. our group of 4 shared everything, so we had a lot of dishes and they were all fresh, tasty, interesting and perfectly prepared. Organic/seasonal produce. Wide selection of natural wines, our 2 bottles were excellent and matched what we had indicated we wanted. Very nice ambience with great lighting. friendly service. Surprisingly low prices compared to similar ambition/level in the area. will definitely come back.

Charmantes kleines Restaurant mit hervorragender Küche und kleiner aber feiner Weinauswahl. Steht auf meiner Merkliste für Berlin!

Gutes, originelles Essen. Nicht zu ausgeuferte Speisekarte. Sehr sachkundige und zuvorkommende Bedienung. Angenehme, nicht aufgesetzte und relaxt Atmosphäre mit französischem Touch. Interessantes Publikum. Immer wieder ein Vergnügen.

frei-offen-kreativ experimentell und unverkrampft - sehr francais.
gutes Preis-Leistung-Verhältnis. sehr familiäre Atmosphäre. Herausragend das Kennenlernen der Naturweine, die man am Tisch verkosten kann, bevor man bestellt. Insgesamt sehr köstlich und beim nächsten Berlinbesuch wieder gerne "La Malo" Merci.
