Had a very interesting experience last night. We went to dinner at a German restaurant with another couple. We had heard of this restaurant from a number of people (including a friend who is a professional food critic) so luckily we knew what to expect as it is not your average restaurant.
Firstly, it is located in a small house (just like the one I grew up in) in a small quiet suburban backstreet. Secondly, when you enter you are not sure if you are in a restaurant or an antique shop/art gallery as it is crammed full of artwork and paraphernalia. You can hardly move for all the junk. Definitely eclectic or quirky - see picture below.
Thirdly, there is no menu - you eat whatever Karl decides to cook that day. Last night's selection started with fennel bread with butter, followed by chicken soup and then pork schnitzel with warm German potato salad and a green salad with dressing. Dessert was a choice between cheesecake or Black Forest icecream smothered in schnapps, followed by coffee and chocolates. It was delicious and it only cost us $33 a head (which is very good for our neck of the woods).
They don't advertise - it's all word of mouth and it is one of the highest rated restaurants in Perth according to restaurant review websites. They do say, however, not to go there if you want fast food. Karl and his partner do not have any staff - they do everything themselves and you eat when it's ready. It takes all night! It's basically like going to dinner at someone's house as Karl socialises with all his guests.
We had a fabulous time and will definitely go back.
