First of all, location: the restaurant is located in the Gendarmenmarkt itself, in the building of the French Cathedral; then, the food: made of local products, fusion and local cuisine with international influences. What might be less appealing are the prices (well, it is a chef-restaurant in the middle of Gendarmenmarkt!). The menu is ever-changing with the season, the mood, and the will of the chef.

A review at Been There: "A restaurant where we ate from the 'Winterzaubermenu' available from October to January. This costs 30 euros for 4 courses - and 3 of them are duck! Duck pancake rolls, duck 'cappucino' soup, leg of duck, and (hooray, no duck) a light mousse with cherries. Basil Fawlty ('the duck's off') has nothing on this! All served beautifully and politely in a warm, cosy environment."
