Expert review of Vau

Michelin-starred gourmet food in the popular Mitte district.

I'm a big fan of Vau. The style is minimalist, the food decidedly gourmet and innovative...it's one of those places that seems to effortlessly hits the spot.

Food and drink: 

Michelin-starred chef Kolja Kleeberg is in charge of this hip modern bistro and creates German cuisine with an international accent. Dishes are inventive yet hearty: think duck with red cabbage, quince and sweet chestnut; braised pork belly with grilled scallops, and lobster with mango and black olives with tapenade. All accompanied by an excellent wine list.

Ambience: 

The cool interior - designed by one of Germany’s leading architects – features a composite of glass, steel and wood but some may find it a little sterile. There is also a downstairs coal cellar that looks like a library (the ‘books’ are actually bricks of coal), which can be reserved for special events and an Art Nouveau-style summer terrace.

Service: 

Professional but cool.

Location: 

On the Gendarmenmarkt in Mitte.

Price advice: 

At lunch starters are all 15 euros, mains all 18 euros and desserts all 15 euros. For dinner the fixe menu is 110 euros, starters are from 32-36 euros, main courses are 38 euros, soups 24-26 euros and desserts 17-18 euros.
