“Excellent German Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2012

We would recommend this place for anyone looking for quality good tasting food. The bratwurst and pasta dishes were excellent and service good. Too bad it isn't open on Sunday. You can't go wrong.

“High quality food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2012

Another place with high quality food. We started with an assortment of starters - actually a nicely combined selection with scallops, shrimps, goose liver, parma ham ++, where one plate was sufficient for two persons. Then we tried Zürcher geschnetzteltes (veal cut in strips). Excellent, but could have been a little more spicy. Rather expensive place but worth it.

“Best in Lübeck (of the 3 we ate at)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2012

This is a small, modern looking restaurant in old Lübeck. The night we were there we were the only patrons – not always a good sign, but we were not disappointed. Our meal was right up there amongst the best, if not the best, we had during this 2-week trip through Germany. We had the “Fish menu”: salmon carpaccio with potato (latke), scallops with fried cauliflower slivers & cheese & bacon, lobster & more; and beef carpaccio & hirschrucken with semmelknödel (venison and dumplings, but the German sounds so much more gemütlichkeit). It was a great meal. Vai has a varied and interesting menu, and an excellent chef.
