We decided that we wanted to dine somewhere a little nicer than average on our trip to Berlin, and when I read about Restaurant Maxwell it sounded perfect. It was also only about 10 minutes walk from our hotel which added to its appeal!

Maxwell is located back from the street, via a pretty courtyard area. The restaurant is housed in a lovely building that was built in 1878, covering the ground and first floors of the building. Service was friendly and very efficient.

One complaint would be that the tables we all very close together....though we did meet some very interesting American ladies sitting next to us and swapped travel stories.

Favorite Dish: To start we shared a dish which had ducks breast and a type of asparagus mousse. It had very interesting flavours. Main course for me was the Entrecote, served with vegetables - the meat was delicious.

For dessert one of the options was asparagus! I decided I had to have it. It was Caramelised Asparagus with balsamic strawberries and chocolate rosemary ice cream. It was certainly an unusual taste sensation! Alex had the Lemon Ravioli with nougat parfait, also a bit unusual, but entirely edible.

A lovely bottle of French red wine added to a wonderful evening.
