Cooperativa is the only restaurant I know where it is not possible to reserve a table. That’s true! Everyone has equal chances of getting a seat, even those who (almost always) plan last minute, like me! And no, this does not end up in chaos; and yes, everyone leaves the place happy and full.
Cooperativa offers easy-going atmosphere, delicious Mediterranean dishes (huge portions of yummy food cooked with love and care), fair prices, good beer and the opportunity to meet the nice, interesting people who share the table with you (the majority of the tables are big and ready to be shared, and trust me, this is the beauty of this place).
For me, this is the place where Southern cuisine meets the Bavarian “Gemütlichkeit” (which stands for the easy-going, relaxed attitude of Bavarians) and I simply love that!
