  • Arek's Mes: Middle-eastern food

    by SSlatter Written Sep 19, 2007

    Arek's Mes is a little gem of an Imbiss (snack bar) specialising in middle-eastern food. Here you will find falafel, doner, and houmous amongst other things. It is very unpretentious and the landlady is very sweet and polite. The doner roll is excellent, as is the falafel. There is a small number of seats both indoors and outside. Recommended.

  • Café Antik: Old world ambience

    by SSlatter Written Sep 17, 2007

    Café Antik is a café largely frequented by locals, and although it is a bit off the beaten track, is well worth a visit if you want to see how the germans relax and take it easy. Decorated with antique furniture and nick-nacks, it is very comfortable and has a pleasant soothing ambience. The resident landlady is very friendly and polite. As would be expected, it offers coffee and all the sundry alcoholic drinks that you would expect to find, as well as, if I remember rightly, some snacks as well. A good place to hunt out to relax and chat with the locals. It opens daily from 3 o'clock until late (one night we were served at 1 o'clock in the morning) but the opening time is a bit variable, as the landlady may not be fully ready at three in the afternoon. Recommended.

  • Alfredo's: Great Cuban bar

    by SSlatter Updated Sep 14, 2007

    "Alfredo's" is a little gem of a cocktail bar tucked in not far from the Innenstadt (town centre) pedestrian precinct. The theme is Cuban, and the landlord seems to be a Cubano himself, although I can't say for sure as I never asked him. He certainly speaks spanish though. The bar specialises in a many and varied selection of cocktails and was so good that we visited it two nights running. The music is great: latin jazz and Cuban sounds and rhythm. We chose "Caipirinha" and "Cuban Fever", which is a Pinacolada derivative, and very tasty they both were. I have to say that after a couple of those, I was quite sozzled! The interior walls of the bar are decorated with customers' messages from around the world, all in praise of the bar and the very friendly landlord. There is also ample outdoor seating for those sultry summer nights. Don't worry if you don't fancy a cocktail. The bar also has draught beer, coffee and all the sundry drinks that you would associate with a normal german establishment. Recommended.

  • Chima Japan restaurant: To be avoided.

    by SSlatter Updated Sep 13, 2007

    “Chima Japan” restaurant is a bit of an enigma. It advertises itself as a dual chinese/japanese restaurant, but when I saw the menu I could only find one chinese dish, which I chose. It was called “Chinesicher Bauernteller” and sounded appetising enough, consisting of fried duck, pork, and chicken with a beansprout salad. It was terrible: completely overcooked and dry, a complete waste of money. My friend was not very hungry, and chose some japanese fried dumplings which were overdone and loaded with grease. At least the beer was good. The bill for two came to 20.00 euros, which was poor value. I would not wish to ever return to this restaurant.

  • Coffee Lounge Schwer In: Great coffee.

    by SSlatter Written Sep 13, 2007

    This café is situated in one side of a gifts and trinkets shop not far from the Pfaffenteich. It has a great selection of coffees from around the world, with seating inside for about 12 people, so depending on the time of day, you may or may not find a free table. It is very popular, and the music is good too. The service is fine, and the landlord friendly. Our favourites became "milch kaffee" (large milky coffee) and "chai" (large milky tea Indian-style). A good place to relax and chat. Recommended.

  • Rösterei Fuchs: Best coffee in Schwerin.

    by SSlatter Written Sep 13, 2007

    Rösterei Fuchs is a coffeehouse in Schwerin Innenstadt. It specialises in sales of raw coffee beans with a many and varied selection of beans from around the world. They will sell you a cup of your choice, however, to take away or drink in. There is a small number of seats available, as the emphasis is on off-sales. You will not be disappointed at the very high standards on offer. This establishment may not only sell the best coffee in Schwerin, it might also sell the best coffee in Germany! A sheer delight.

  • Bootshaus- Seehotel Frankenhorst: Poor recommendation.

    by SSlatter Updated Sep 13, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The “Bootshaus” is the restaurant of the Seehotel Frankenhorst, which was recommended to me as a good place to eat. Situated by the side of a lake known as Ziegelsee, the restaurant has a very pleasant outlook. Unfortunately I can’t say the same about the food, which was disappointing to say the least. I ordered a schweinesteak with salad and pommes frites, which was dry and uninteresting. My friend (a vegetarian) ordered Wokgemüse, which was a dish of stir-fried vegetables in a purportedly chinese style. It was so salty she felt the need to complain, albeit after she had eaten it. The service was okay. The bill for two came to 32.90 euros with drinks, that I felt was not good value, taking into account the rather low standard of cooking that we experienced. Maybe we just visited on a bad day, but I cannot recommend this restaurant.

  • Orangerie: Al fresco coffee

    by SSlatter Written Sep 13, 2007

    The Orangerie is the downstairs café attached to the castle (Schloss Burg). It's very shady, being as it is set around a 3-metre-thick tree and various stoneworks, and it has a very pleasant ambience. A very nice place to have a coffee or a drink after visiting the castle. The service was good, as was the coffee and ice cream.

  • Café Vogelgarten: Worth a visit

    by SSlatter Written Sep 10, 2007

    Café Vogelgarten is more than just a café. It houses a collection of exotic birds, from eagle owls to parakeets and parrots. The coffee and ice cream were good, and all-in-all this is a very pleasant place to spend an hour or so away from Schwerin in the countryside.

  • Zur Oase: Give this one a miss.

    by SSlatter Written Sep 10, 2007

    Many Schwerin visitors visit the Baltic Sea for a day trip, and I was no exception. “Zur Oase” is a seafront restaurant in Schwarzer Busch on the Baltic Sea. It has a pleasant outlook, but the food was disappointing. I chose Shrimps Ofenkartoffeln (baked potatos with shrimp), and my friend chose baked Camembert. The baked potatos were poor: I like mine with crispy skin, but these were baked in silver foil which meant that the skins were damp, inedible and unappealing. The shrimps were cold and unappetising. My friend’s camembert was overcooked and uninteresting. The bill for two came to 22.40 euros with drinks, which I felt was poor value. I could not recommend this restaurant.
