Very good food, non- alcoholic options, very good service at a very surprising spot ! We liked it very much !
The food. Because it's very good.
Let me preface this review with a bit about myself. I have 5 years of experience working in the restaurant industry; my father is a successful vegetarian chef and caterer; I'm a very adequate vegan and vegetarian cook who hosts dinners monthly with friends and family always impressed and satisfied by the fare. My palate is accurate and sensitive. I ate at Cookies Cream one month ago.So, on to the review. Why one star? Yes, like some people have already noted, the portion sizes were quite comical at times, but that's to be expected from a Michelin start restaurant. Don't think there's ever been a Michelin star restaurant that had good value...that's not why you eat at these types of restaurant. You got for the experience. Some people found it amusing how difficult the restaurant is to find...I just found it frustrating. One thing I was put off by was that you're spending hundreds of Euros for very 'fancy' dishes and yet the service staff are wearing jeans and t-shirts. Call me old fashion, but I found that disrespectful. But, the main issue I had with the restaurant is really the only thing that matters: the food was terrible. There was no balance to be found in any of the dishes we ate in the 5-course tasting menu: some were too salty, some were too tangy, none were delicious and all of them lacked the skilled technique I expect from a Michelin star restaurant. On an offensive comical note, my friend had the non-alcoholic drink pairing with the tasting menu (he's a recovering alcoholic so he was pretty impressed they offered something like this). Sadly, the first drink he had was cold green tea with a hint of sugar - something that can be made at home with littler effort - a pretty lame way to start things off...and it didn't pair well with the course at all. The next pairing was downright hilarious: cucumber water with relish...if you're thinking this sounds like a fancy way of saying 'pickle juice,' well...you'd be right. It was fancy pickle juice. And it was paired with a tangy tomato soup...tangy and tangy do not pair...they amplify. A paired beverage is meant to compliment the fare. So, not surprisingly, he stopped the drinks after that. One of the five dishes was somewhat decent, involving a large cube of eggplant and some delicate, almost-delicious sauce. But one out of five is not acceptable for a Michelin start restaurant (especially for a tasting menu). To end of the tasting menu, we had cucumber sorbet with cucumber, cucumber, cucumber. Ok, a refreshing way to end of a meal...I get it, clever. But still, for hundreds of Euros, one expects significantly more flavour, satisfaction and satiation. If you're into this kind of experience, cool. If you value excellent taste in your food above all else, then avoid, avoid, avoid.
