Brasserie du Gutenberg Potsdam

The bread with homemade tomato dip was quite nice. The French onion soup was good and the Coq au vin was surprisingly wonderful. Not only was the chicken moist and tasty but the melange of vegetables and potatoes was noteworthy. Ten for ten. This one gets my recommendation. 

Das Krongut am Schloss Sanssouci, Potsdam, Germany

Blood sausage won the Cofrerie de Goute Boudin Knight of the Blood Sausages. Eh. It was good but pricey. I would give it 7 out of 10.  There is a King's Bakery on the same location. I wish I'd eaten there instead.

Strandhalle, Bremenhaven, Germany

This wonderful restaurant sits above the new harbor with a spectacular view. The food is wonderful particularly the large choices of cream filled cakes. A wonderful place to eat. 

Mediterraneo Restaurant, Bremenhaven

The food was mediocre and the view sucked on the terrace but the service was fast so were not stuck there a long time.  Don't bother with this place. There is another much nicer place with a terrace, a view and very nice food within walking distance. Eat at Strandhalle.

Aioli, Bremen, Germany

If you find yourself in Northern Germany with a hankering for Spanish tapas this is definitely the place to eat. Located among the old fisherman's homes you can almost imagine you are eating in Cordoba with the old tall buildings blotting out the sun. The food was reall delicious. 10 stars

Bresson Cafe Brasserie Francais, Utrecht, Netherlands

Excellent food in a great location on the Oudegracht. The lamb, beef and crepes were all wonderfully cooked and the sauces were very tasty. For this qualit of restaurant the price was quite reasonable. The one negative about the place was the terrible service. When I asked for a White Russian cocktail they told me they couldn't make it. I looked over at the bar and pointed out the contents and they made the drink. The wait for the table was terrible long in an empty restaurant. The wait for the food even longer to the point of frustration. The food made up for it.

Chinese Muur, Arnhem, Netherlands

This restaurant is as Chinese as KFC is Mexican Food. It was truly an Indonesian Dutch restaurant with Chinese art on the wall to make it seem like it is Chinese. If you eat here definitely get the raw fish and beef and have the chef prepare it. That was quite nice. Everything else was just ok. The food is buffet style but table service for drinks was slow and disorganized. This restaurant seems as though it specializes in groups. For that it was fine. It would get a 7.5 out of ten rating overall.
