Einfach ein rundum toller Abend. Der Service war hervorragend, super freundlich und mit den besten Empfehlungen! Das Essen sorgte gar für ein wenig Gänsehaut - SO GUT war es! Der dazu empfohlene Wein war klasse. Wir kommen bald wieder

This has nothing to do with the overwhelmingly friendly service nor the really tasty food but dining outside on the pavement was quite an experience because of some police operation on oranienplatz. Next time I‘d rather eat inside the beautiful old pharmacy.

Good food and great wine. The veal starter was excellent and nduja on the monkfish main very very nice.
A lovely friendly team - I can imagine in normal times this place would be buzzing.
Expected a little more from the bar - look wise, it looked a little bare/ unstocked as though they were still setting up for the evening but the Negroni was 10/10!

Would definitely go back

Very nice rooms and great decorations. We had a nice table and was quickly served. First two starters were lovely, Pork Rillettes and Burrata and the wine suggestion was also very good.
When we had finished the starters we had also finished the first bottle of wine but our waiter wasnt around so we could order a second. We managed to get hold of a colleague and asked for the winelist about the same time as the maincourse was served. I now couldnt get hold of any waiters because the place was busy so by the time we had the second bottle of wine two of us had already finished our maincourse.. That was really not okay.
My third dish was Comté - the taste of the cheese was very nice but the serving itself was not very good.
The dessert, Strawberry and Elderflower with Eton mess was a bit boring.

It looked like there were to little staff for the amount of guests which was a shame, because the staff was very friendly and with very few adjustments all the dishes would have been very nice but now we had 2 out of 4 dishes which was not worth the Money + the wine came after we finished our main course..

I might come back and try it Again.
Best regards
Martin Clément

Ora has a great interior in the old pharmacy and the food is really good, however, wine is overpriced and for the atmosphere and prices, you'd expect cloth napkins rather than paper napkins. They probably still need to get the hang of it, but overall decent experience.

Dear Cherolyn, Thanks a lot for coming to ORA and for taking time to write a review. Unfortunately since the pandemic, many of the linen companies were closed and not offering restaurant services, so we had to open with high quality thick paper napkins instead. We will be back to linen napkins very soon. We hope to see you at ORA again soon.

Loved the atmosphere here! Old farmacy now a restaurant but a lot of interior intact. Full restaurant so the waitress was busy but still friendly and helpful. We had a 5 course set menu and it was so tasty, and we were all satisfied. Organic wine to go with it. Good value👍

Love Ora and wanted to go again before they close, the ambience and location is unparalleled but the service left a lot to be desired. Order was taken wrong so didn’t get the food we wanted (ordered four courses and only got two) and by the time we asked what was going on the kitchen had been closed.

Wir waren zu viert. Alle waren der Meinung, dass man hier der neuerlichen Mode anhängt, nur noch Menüs anzubieten. Man will es Sterneköchen nachmachen, ohne es im entferntesten zu schaffen. So auch hier. Auch eine Unverhältnismäßigkeit in den Proportionen. Dem opener, einem Riesenklopps Tatar, der fantasielos angemacht war, folgten kleine mehr oder weniger schmackhafte Gängelchen. Das Dessert war eigentlich der Haupttreffer. Die Frage, einen entkoffeinierten Kaffee dazu gereicht zu bekommen, wurde verneint. Das Personal ist sehr freundlich. Man sitzt in einer angenehmen Atmosphäre. Aber wenn man dann auf die Rechnung schaut, stellt sich doch ein Gefühl der Unstimmigkeit ein.

ORA has changed its offer to a set menu unfortunately. Maybe easier to handle for the kitchen team, but the guests can mainly choose between two menus that comprise 4 to 6 courses. The dishes are still tasty, but variations and individual choices for the guests are fewer. I preferred the previous concept.

Historic (pharmacy) interior, friendly staff and delicious dishes combined with a fine selection of wines. However, at a place like this one would wish for little more exposure and time to explain the menu, and having a sommelier or expert being familiar with the wines in the card.- Certainly a place to visit and enjoying a good dinner.

Atmosphäre und Einrichtung sehr angenehm, Service freundlich und aufmerksam, die Gerichte ausgefallen und durchaus delikat, aber die Portionen so winzig, dass ich selbst als schlanke Frau Mühe hatte, satt zu werden. Dafür ist der Preis doch zu hoch. Die Auswahl an offenen Weinen ist zu klein (2 rote, davon einer ein Naturwein, das muss man mögen!) und für die Qualität ebenfalls zu hochpreisig. Deshalb insgesamt nicht rund herum empfehlenswert. Schade!

Unser Abend im ora war nett, aber mit kleinen Wehmutstropfen. Das Service ist ausgesprochen nett, lässt sich aber teilweise sehr lang Zeit, um Bestellungen aufzunehmen und zu bringen. Wir hatten das 4-Gang Menü, das geschmacklich gut aber im Bezug auf die Portionsgrößen deutlich zu wenig war. Unser einziger männlicher Begleiter verließ das ORA hubgrig, und auch wir drei Damen hätten uns, vA beim Hauptgang mehr gewünscht.

Die Bedienung war unglaublich freundlich und wirklich bemüht, nur erwarte ich von einer Weinbegleitung, dass wenigstens Name, Traube, Jahrgang und Ort genannt werden (statt ›Das ist ein Rotwein, der wird gekühlt serviert.‹) Also vielleicht den Service einfach besser informieren. Das Essen, die Stimmung und die Einrichtung bleiben fantastisch!

The atmosphere is very pleasant, good wine options, despite being above the values ​​charged in other establishments. Some dishes deserve highlighting and congratulations, such as the mushroom dish, on the other hand, some dishes were of much lower quality.
The choice on eating the menu was very unfortunate. It is extremely expensive for what is served, especially when people who choose sharing plates eat the same thing and pay half the price. The two exclusive dishes on the menu were not exceptional to justify the amount charged

Das Konzept ist toll und das Menü für 45 EUR eine tolle Sache. Es sind keine riesen Portionen, aber top Qualität und man wird satt. Außergewöhnlich gut sind die Cocktails und die Barkeeper. Sarah, eine Barkeeperin, ist wirklich unterhaltsam und zaubert tolle Kreationen.
Schnell noch einmal hin, bevor das Restaurant Silvester schließt.

Netter Service, interessante, aber überschaubare Weinkarte. Im Menü war das Tartar sehr gelungen, der Saibling eher langweilig und ohne Pepp. Auch der darauf drapierte Fenchel war eher Schonkost und wenig spannend. Könnte man deutlich mehr daraus machen. Das Perlhuhn und Co eine glatte 3 und der Nachtisch ebenfalls. Wobei die Kümmelbaiserplatten eine gute Idee waren.

Das Essen versprach diesmal leider optisch bei Weitem mehr, als es dann geschmacklich hielt.. (für den Preis) deutlich zu schwach. Sehr schönes Ambiente. Freundlicher, manchmal etwas holpriger Service. Hoffentlich überzeugt das ORA beim nächsten Mal wieder; wäre schade, es ganz von meiner 'Liste' streichen zu müssen
