Weinsinn offers super food and excellent wine pairings. It really was a delight to eat here. The first thing you notice is the relaxed atmosphere. Next is the menu. Weinsinn offers a la carte or a choice of a 3, 4, or 5 course menu. The majority of cages are dedicated to wines. We opted for the 4 course and asked for a wine pairing to go with each course. We chose well. Some thought had clearly gone into matching the wines and a majority were German wines too. Food was sublime and the service friendly and attentive. I finished with cheeses which were all in perfect ripe condition. Given it's Michelin star, and the quality of the food, the price was very reasonable. I'll be going back!

We loved our visit to Weinsinn. The dining room is small and cosy, with designer furniture and flowers in vases. As you'd expect, bottles of wine are much in evidence. The menu is not extensive, but the food is excellent and worthy of its Michelin star. We were served good, fresh bread (white and rye) which they replenished each time we greedily finished the basket. Our only complaint of the evening was that the butter was flavoured with fenugreek when we would have preferred plain. We took the four course chef's menu (we could have had 3 or 5 courses but 4 worked out right for us) and had -
* An amuse bouche of salmon tartare, cucumber, potato and beef broth, dotted with 2 creamy sauces and sprinkled with crackling
* A fried king prawn with tomato, goat cheese and tomato gazpacho
* Oxtail raviolo with white asparagus
*Veal with spinach, with slow cooked ragout of beef and mashed potatoes
* Deconstructed black forest cherry cake
* A frozen salty caramel petit four, dipped in chocolate
Everything was good, although we were in heaven with the raviolo. The cooking was intelligent, with some items (like the beef broth) featuring in more than one dish, creating connections through the meal. We had a bottle of reasonable German riesling and plenty of water. With tip the bill came to 195 Euros and we felt like we'd had great value.

This was a great restaurant. The tasting menu was quite good value, considering this restaurant has a Michelin star. I loved the deconstructed Black Forest cake, and the veal used in a couple of the dishes was so tender and well cooked. The choice of wines was extensive.

The food was creative and tasted good but I am not a fan of nouvelle cuisine. The portions were small and the combination of flavors was interesting but for my taste a bit purposeless. The atmosphere was not particularly romantic, a bit cold and he round tables did not help. As a French tend to prefer more traditional cooking, which is usually less subtle but tastier.

We arrived and immediately were attended by the rudest waitress I have ever seen in a restaurant. She explained the fixed menu where deer and guinea fowl was included and several at my table didn't want to have that and asked for the menu to see if they could eat something else. The waitress acted like we insulted her for asking. The menu had exactly 3 main plates including pig stomach. After battling to see what to eat some only had one plate that didn't sound that bad others didn't eat and waited to ask for dessert. The food tried to be upscale gourmet French but was hardly that. When asking for the dessert menu the answer was "I only have two hands". That was the cherry at the top of the cake. If you want TERRIBLE service, limited food selection and French wannabe food go but I don't recommend it.
