Nil – The gold standard

You know that feeling? When you wanted to take your partner or friend out for a special dinner and later you feel this small regret when you pay the € 120+ bill? Was it really worth all that money? Well, let me tell you, this will never happen at Nil.

I don’t know a single person who’s ever left this place disappointed or feeling cheated. Every better restaurant that I visit has to compare to Nil. It is my personal golden standard. The food is just flawless. The dish creations never fail to amaze. The wine list is superb, with an emphasis on German and French wine. The tables are set up nicely. The waiters have just the right attitude – which is to give you a pleasant evening and let you enjoy the atmosphere. And the seasonal menus.

The special Nil atmosphere. It is always buzzing, but the acoustics allow you to have intimate conversation. The restaurant has three levels (and a patio). One is a balcony, overseeing the whole place. That is where you want to sit, unless, of course, the weather allows you to sit outside. You have to make a reservation – on all days of the week. It is no secret that the Nil is always special – and always crowded.
