My recommendations for tasty meals in Berlin

Le Provençal, French dinner by the river

provencal (1)I was looking for new French restaurants in Berlin (well by new I mean that I haven’t tried yet) and I stumbled on Le Provençal, which sounded nice from the reviews and the online menu.

The place is quite nice, it’s located in Nikolai Viertel, along the Spree, a few minutes walk from Alexander Platz.
Service was friendly but could be improved, I had to wait quite a long time for just water…
From the menu, it looks that they don’t put cheese in the Quiche Lorraine, which is a big plus since there is NO cheese is the real Quiche Lorraine, I haven’t tried it but those who did said it was good (but somehow unable to tell if there was cheese or not in it…)

provencal (10)I had first the home made foie gras, you can taste it’s home made, really good. Too bad I did not get my toasts, noticed it too late when someone else had it later. I had the beef filet, I asked it rare and it was cooked almost medium rare, so it was ok, the meat was really tasty and tender, good quality, nice pepper sauce too.
For dessert, I had the profiteroles, it’s one of my favourite desserts and in 5 years it was the 1st time I found some in Berlin, so I was pretty excited and not at all disappointed. They weren’t the best I ever had but still real tasty.

All in all it was a nice experience, we were all quite happy, even if some weren’t that excited as I was from their food, a bit too expensive though.
