Amazing food, great atmosphere and friendly staff. Not a big menu, but that is the whole point. We booked a table in advance. Recommended!

We went to the Tatort for a family Christmas dinner. The menu was pretty nice offering really fancy cross-over cuisine combining continental and Asian ingredients. Unfortunately, our starters did not arrive at the same time. That`s quite a shame for such a place. However, the food was incredibly tasty and the wine selection very good. The prizes are (for Essen) rather on the expensive side. Thus, it`s really disappointing and not fit for purpose that the place is not offering credit card payment option (only the German EC card) so be really careful.

Overall, excellent food but the timing could be improved. Thus and due to the bad timing with the starters, I have deducted 1 point.

Was here a few years ago and liked it a lot.
Very small almost livingroom size resto for max 40 people inside, tables are very close to each other but not disturbing.
You musr reserve a week in advace for the weekend else you can forget it.
Very good service and attentive, the food has a limited choice but for me more then enough starters are on the high side for price , main is ok.
Wine menu has around 8 wines of red and 8 of white all in the same price range .
Lots of in between dishes, starters where good same as main high quality , dessert also good.
I would highly recommend this place but i also want to keep it for me

Dinner for 2 with starter, main, dessert and bottle of wine
calculate between 130 to 150 euro, but worth it.

The food was incredible, though overly salty. We joked that the cook must be in love and kept forgetting he'd added the salt. The kitchen was short staffed and the food took a while, but we loved being together as a team and enjoyed the entire evening.

The restaurant is famous for its fresh and versatile kitchen. The menu changes very frequently, depending on the ingredients that are available on the market. Usually they serve one vegetarian dish and one with fish or meat each.
As a guest you feel very appreciated. If you cannot decide for a dish the staff is always anxious to find an alternative composition for the guest. There are only few tables so it makes sense to book in advance. The atmosphere is very cozy. There are also tables outside, however, they are located close to the street, which is usual in this area.
