Modern European
Lode & Stijn is a modern European restaurant in Berlin-Kreuzberg that celebrates high-quality regional and seasonal ingredients in a refined yet casual setting.

Our produce-driven menu draws on our team’s creativity and experience working in various restaurants around the world. We get our inspiration from our suppliers, who through their produce enable us to cook the way we want. We have created a menu that we feel presents our ingredients in the best possible way. While our food changes over the course of the year, we keep fragments of other seasons as preserves and ferments, all of which we make in-house.

Our menu is served over the course of a few hours and includes some smaller plates for sharing as well as individual courses.
An exciting list of wines from some of our favorite wine producers is at hand to complement the meal. We receive new wines regularly and update our list as new wines arrive.

The food was great, service was superior and the atmosphere was delicate and stylish,
But the cost is very high, and we didn’t feel that the value is the best. Also, we would prefer to have an la cart menu option and not only a tasting menu.

Dieses kleine Restaurant überzeugt durch die kreative Verwendung von regionalen Zutaten. Auf eine sehr angenehme Art und Weise wird man professionell (aber keineswegs steif) durch das Menü geführt. Wir blicken zurück auf einen rundum gelungenen Abend. Das Konzept des Restaurants ist gut durchdacht und nicht zuletzt die formschönen Akustiktafeln an den Wänden und Decken tragen dazu bei, dass man sich in dieser angenehmen Atmosphäre sehr gut unterhalten kann.

The food was amazing as always. But the wait ... at least 20 minutes between each of the courses ... making for a never ending dinner.
I would go there every time I am in Berlin for the food, but the overall experience means that I always need a bit of a reset before going, hoping it will be faster ... and so the cycle starts again...

Quality was great. Up front we didn’t know that Lode & Stijn are actually from the Netherlands, that was a funny surprise for us (because we are as well). All the courses that we got brought were brought by the one who had made the dish, this made it really refreshing :)
This restaurant is its price more then definitely worth.

We have always liked the food at L&S, although this time was an altogether even more amazing and delicious experience. The tartare is simply to die for!!! The one criticism we used to have in rev past was the very slow service - which they somehow seem to have gotten on top of... a brilliant, brilliant evening - looking forward to our next visit already!!

Geschmackssache
Vorweg: Uns wurde das Lokal empfohlen, mit einem Hinweis darauf, dass es eine „Hipster-Location“ sei. Dieser Teil ist nicht zu negieren.
Es gibt nur ein Menü, das auch vegetarisch gewählt werden kann (beides kostet identisch 68€). Sollte man einen Gang nicht mögen, bekommt man die vegetarische Variante angeboten, zumindest war es bei uns so. Weitere Auswahloptionen wurden uns nicht präsentiert.
Positiv: Das Ambiente ist bewusst nüchtern gehalten, wirkt aber nicht ungemütlich. Atmosphäre ist so angenehm ungezwungen. Servicepersonal ist freundlich. Geschmackliches Highlight war der 2. Gang, Tintenfisch mit Artischocke.

Negativ: Servicepersonal ist etwas arg gewollt locker – setzten sich z.B. auf die Platte des Nebentisches um mit uns zu reden. Leider war es extrem abhängig vom jeweiligen Personal, wie viel einem zum jeweiligen Gericht gesagt wurde. Uns erschlossen sich manche Dinge erst durch die Erklärungen an den Nachbartischen, die vor, bzw. nach uns bedient wurden. Der Einfluss der niederländischen Küche ist deutlich spürbar – was natürlich Geschmackssache ist – wir fanden Buttersauce zu Gang 2, 3 und 4 (zu Gang 3 gab es zudem noch Goudasauce) etwas ideenlos und sehr schwer. Der Ersatzgang zum Tintenfisch (Gang 2) war Artischocke mit Artischockensauce – uns erschloss sich dies nicht.

Fazit: für das Gebotene ist es einfach zu teuer. Die Gerichte waren z.T. zu eindimensional und wenig kreativ. Vor allem wenn man bedenkt, dass das Menu einen Monat lang serviert wird (wenn die Karte dies korrekt dargestellt hat).

Stijn und Lode und ihr Team sind tolle Gastgeber. Der Service ist schnell und reibungslos, das Essen vorzüglich. Nur die Weine (wir hatten die Weinbegleitung für je 40 Euro) sind gut, aber vielleicht etwas "einfacher". Trotzdem wäre es nett gewesen, man hätte beim Wein ab und an einen Schluck nachservierz (andere Gastgeber tun das).

Our visit to Lode and Stijn was definitely the highlight of our weekend in Berlin. The food was excellent (sharing plates)! Such a lovely and unique touch having the chef coming out to tell you all about the dish.

Advice: Sit at the bar...a really great interactive experience.

We’ll be back!
