You step into the villa and you know you've arrived in a very Italian restaurant (and hotel) of distinguished class. This is not your "normal" and usual Italian restaurant around the corner. The ambience and the very competent staff promise a very personal and, if need be, discreet visit. This is the place where the Who's Who of Krefeld and surrounding area meet for business and/or leisure. The food and wine are excellent, just as the service is. We have come to this restaurant on numerous occassions, and shall continue to do so. This is a place for a dinner-for-two, or for big family celebrations - it's a place for that "special something"!

This was a lucky find as we'd planned to go to a different restaurant before a concert in Krefeld but couldn't get in. Struggling to find anywhere to eat we waited on the doorstep here until it opened at 6pm and were warmly welcomed and offered a table outside, which was very welcome on a very hot evening. The outside area is lovely, peaceful and shaded with sun glinting through the tress. Wonderful.
On a short trip to Germany this was the best menu and wine list I'd seen. A bottle of La Forge Estate Chardonnay was ordered and quickly brought, nicely chilled. Delicious. Also bread and cream cheesey dip made with herbs and pink peppercorns for us to nibble, free of charge.
We didn't have much time so just had main courses. One saltimbocca and one onglet (hanger steak). Both were cooked fabulously, the steak quite rare but with a nice dark edge, very tender. And the saltimbocca still moist with crispy parma ham and fresh sage leaves. A similar jus on each plate, a little bit balsamicy, but deep and flavourful. Both dishes were so good we practically ended up sharing our plates. The steak though was perhaps the best I've ever had, seriously. Excellent cooking.
We liked the place so much we reserved a table for the following evening!
We weren't in a rush the next night so had the same white and a bottle of 2006 Chateau Le Temple, again superb. The waiter, a very nice man, seemed surprised that we ordered 2 bottles for 2 people! But he carefully decanted the red and left it to breathe while we attacked our starters. My German's not good, we both ordered "Krabbe", which I thought was crab. Google translate seems to confirm this but we got little shrimp instead. Very nice though, with an avocado cream, all prettily arranged on the plate, and salad in a glass. Not the first time I've had food served in a glass in Germany. My only small criticism amongst all our food was 2 completely soft prawn crackers stuck on either end of the prawn and avocado salad. Really not a good addition to a plate with such finesse! I tried to constructively point this out.
We both had the onglet again for the main course, it was that good. This time we asked for a few extra vegetables, and potatoes instead of the potato dumplings which we'd had the night before, which they were happy to do. The potatoes were sauteed with a few onions and were awesome. Gorgeous. Once again everything was cooked perfectly.
Desserts were great too, we both had ice cream with assorted little goodies. My friend's selection included basil ice cream which was really nice and went great with the berries.
Good coffee too, friendly staff, a lovely place inside and out (raining the second night so we sat inside).
Frankly, I've had some rubbish food in Germany, bland and predictable. Meat, turnips, kraut, that sort of thing. This place was quite different, a welcome change, and a very lucky find.
Thank you so much to all the staff and especially to the excellent chefs who really know how to cook.

Although I was very pleased at what this typical German restaurant offered in the past, my recent visit at lunch time was not so pleasant. I ordered a dish (asparagus, ham, hollandaise sauce, potatoes) that was a special lunch offer for $ 18.50. It was rather disappointing because the asparagus was not cooked long enough until tender. Although this dish was on the lunch menu you had to wait about 30 minutes until it was served.

So the pumpkin soup was very different- very citrusy so that the pumpkin flavor was almost overridden. My husband liked his penne with pesto but my salami pizza was way too salty.Thank your for your Comment. Yes the Pizza was too salty. On this Week we had a new Pizza Baker. We are Sorry about that.

simple | authentic | portuguese - This is what you will find in our Bistro. We serve traditional portuguese food in a familiar ambience. Furthermore we have a small shop with typical portuguese goods and merchandise. We would be happy to welcome you soon!
I have been in this restaurant twice while i was living in Germany and both times i had really good meals. However, i think it lacks a bit when it comes to choice of portuguese dishes, it only has a few very typical dishes available from Portugal. The good thing is that even if it is a small choice, everything is amazing! :)
If they have it available, i would recommend you to try the "pastel de nata", a very typical pastry from Portugal.

Namaste, ( according to my research ) is a respectful form of greeting when spoken and is accompanied by the clasped hands gesture. Not only is it the apt name of the restaurant but, without fail, is how every diner is greeted, more often than not by the utterly charming lady owner, resplendent in her Sari.
With such a welcome, you really do feel welcomed, and it does set the tone for your visit. I have been there several times, often for lunch in the Summer months enjoying the enclosed courtyard and superb cuisine. and I have taken many photos, as that is my hobby…. food, haha.
I have never really found the time to write a review ( until now ) and was urged to do so, because I went again recently with some local friends who are both Vegetarian… not easy, for a confirmed meat eater such as myself.
The restaurant does lay on a fixed price buffet, Friday through Sunday evenings ( sorry, I don’t like the term “all you can eat” ) … but the variety of choice is well worth a mention. Bear in mind this is pre-Christmas, so booking was essential, and like most restaurants at this time, was full.
However, we didn’t feel under pressure to “scoff and go” which is also a great feeling and adds to the quality of the evening. As I have mentioned it is the variety which counts here, suffice to say that my guests ate their fill from the vast selection of Vegan and Vegetarian offerings, as did I.
I am sure interested parties will find their website easily for detailed information, However, the “must haves” for me are the:
a) Chapati: A sea-salt encrusted and “inflated” bread… yum!
b) The Mango and Yoghurt drink: Seriously, this is like Ambrosia from the gods!
c) Trifle: equally divine! from the array of Deserts and fresh fruits.
Oooo, I have to stop writing now, as I am getting quite peckish. If you are in the Krefeld region, check it out, go eat and enjoy.

Join the bellini! Hidden in a street you would not expect the bellini lays. Fabio and his family makes such a good job: the Italien food ist made fresh, the service ist pleasant ... The small card changes weekly...
You' ll never expect such a good restaurant in this part of the city

Das Paket aus Essen, Service und Ambiente stimmt für uns hier vollständig. Das Restaurant befindet sich in einem alten Industriegebäude, das als Event-Location umgebaut wurde. Wer ein rustikal-gediegenes Lokal bevorzugt, ist hier sicherlich falsch aufgehoben.

Kleines, feines sehr gemütliches Tapasrestaurant in der Innenstadt.
Wir hatten Glück und ohne Reservierung einen Tisch bekommen, war unter der Woche, ansonsten ist eine Reservierung empfehlenswert.
Der Service war super freundlich und zuvorkommend.
Die Karte bietet viele leckere spanische Tapas. Die Portionen sind gut bemessen und die Preise sind auch ok.
Unser Fazit, klasse und wir kommen bald schon wieder.
