    I had been waiting over 6months to visit this place. I am allergic to gluten and lactose, so naturally the paleo lifestyle fits with me. Having stumbled across the restaurant during a google search I was super excited to visit Berlin.

    I am an Aussie, so when i stumbled across this restaurant i was 6months away from eating there, and my excitement was pretty intense when i finally got to eat there.

    So a few hours before we went to eat at Sauvage, we checked out online what we were going to order.

    When we arrived at Sauvage we were surprised by the atmosphere and the layout of the restaurant. We were seated at a cute little wooden table with candles as the only lighting. The rest of the restaurant is quite dark with candles lighting the way, which sets a great mood.

    When we were given the menu to look over, i was disappointed to notice the two things i had decided on at the hotel before arriving were not on this menu. I was very disappointed, but also excited that i was able to eat and order anything off the menu, this has never happened before.

    My friend and i each ordered a starter, a main, a dessert and a bottle of wine. The food was AMAZING!!! I was in heaven with each bite. My friend doesn't follow a paleo lifestyle, however was still impressed by the grain free bread and crackers, the apple and rhubarb crumble and the bacon wrapped quail.

    I wished i'd had more time in Berlin to go back to Sauvage for Breakfast, their grain free, gluten free, dairy free and sugar free options looked amazing.

    For the 3 courses and a bottle of wine, we were only set back 70ish euro, which in my eyes is pretty good for the quality and the portion sizes we were served.

    Will recommend this place to any one visiting Berlin regardless of allergies or health choices.

    It's definitely worth trying if you want to get a different (gluten/salt free) taste of food. I´ve been here second time -first was some 2 years ago- because I loved the starters with delicious nut bread and several dips. Unfortunately these are off the menu. We were left with a different -rather disappointing- bread and dip starter.
    The main dish selection is very limited but that makes it always easier to decide (I think). We had a boar goulash and fish with an extremely yummy sauce. Although it was all good the food was not particularly special. Remember not to come too hungry or with more cash to the restaurant - the portions are rather petite.

    So this place was ok, maybe it was what I ordered, but it was an experience.  For what I had, lamb as my main dish, it was good, but I've had better.  The bulk of my party ordered steak and they all felt it was very much just ok - they all wanted some salt and pepper.  

    the dessert I had, pumpkin tart, was ok, but I think I would have preferred the chocolate.  However beware, it is very bland and bitter, no sugar is added.  If you love dark chocolate it is amazing, but if you're not expecting it then don't order it.  I would probably go back only if it is another company dinner.

    One of the best filet's I've ever eaten. Amazing attention to detail and quality. The food was outstanding, the service friendly, the prices are very fair and the wine was lovely. The only thing I am not happy with is that I'm not there right now.

    A great dining experience recommended to all.

    Don't get me wrong. I love the concept behind this place. I eat fairly strict Paleo and this is one of the places I can easily order almost everything from the menu. So, what went wrong. Well here's a list of things I found lacking:

    -service is horrible. We were there when most tables were taken and there was one guy doing all the service. He was trying his best but it took forever to take our order, bring our drinks and so forth. Unacceptable, especially if your place is booming.

    -the menu is very limited. I know you can't have tons of stuff if you regularly update it but come on....this is a Paleo place.....have a steak on the menu at least. I like creative cooking but sometimes I want a great steak with vegetables or something along those lines. Show me that you can cook and make the simple, basic stuff spectacular because you focus on Paleo.

    -the wine list is odd. We weren't impressed with the wines we tried.

    -the pricing for dishes is odd. Two completely different dishes have pricing which seems pulled from the hip. Not really cheap nor expensive but odd pricing.

    -fairly boring room. They could have easily done a bit more "design" and make it memorable. Don't make the place a cave or anything like that but put a bit more effort into it.

    -the tables outside are nice but invest some money and get quality stuff. Somewhat flimsy in my opinion.

    Now, for the positive. I like Paleo and if you do too, definitely try this place out. It is worth it just to finally see places focused on Paleo. I foresee some more places doing something similar in the future. Hopefully competition will force Sauvage to up their game.

    Sauvage is one of the best restaurants in Berlin. Beyond the raw, chic and cozy interior and atmosphere, the food is divine. No sugar, wheat, soy but tastes divine...it was made for me!

    Supposedly it is the only 100% Paleo restaurant in the world beyond a cafe in Copenhagen.

    They need to open a location in LA and NY so I can invest.

    Go immediately and order a dessert.

    American traveling through Berlin with some locals I never thought I'd be treated to such a delightful experience.  The decor, vibe, and food was all amazing.  You know the story - paleo grub sourced only from the most ethically raised animals and fresh ingredients without wheat, gluten, blah blah... Bottom line is that the food is DELICIOUS!  Worth the trip if you are a local or just traveling through.

    I am a caveman, so not so good with technology. This restaurant is good! They are the only place that serves Authentic caveman food. That mean no gluten or sugar. I do have to say those auto paper towels in the bathroom blew my mind.

    Bin mit meiner Tochter und ohne Erwartungshaltung hergekommen. Mein Kind konnten wir von Ihrem Neukölln-Trauma erfolgreich befreien und außerdem den komischen Paleo-Typen ein wenig näher bringen. Danke Berlin. Danke Sauvage.
    Zum Essen: 5 Sterne! Habe in Deutschland noch kein so leckeres Stück biodynamisches und artiges Fleisch bekommen. Auf den Punkt medium rare gegart versteht sich. Apropos verstehen das hat problemlos geklappt.. auf Deutsch oder auf Englisch, überhaupt kein Problem. Hätte mich gerne auch auf französich mit der charmanten Bedienung deren Namen ich leider nicht erfragt habe unterhalten aber mit Je suis Monique Leroque kam ich bei Ihr nicht weiter.
    Um mal mit einem Paleo Vorurteil aufzuräumen: neben dem Fleisch welches man sich nicht jeden Tag gönnen muss gibt es auch im Sauvage sehr guten Salat und Gemüse. Ihren Salat hatte meine Kleine in Rekordzeit verputzt und sich dann reiflich überlegt ob es lieber Kokos-Carob-Mandelkekse, Crepes oder Eiscreme zum Nachtisch gibt. Hier würde manch einer einen Stern abziehen ich würde lieber einen dazu geben: die Eiscreme war leider nicht gelungen, weil ein Rohstoff nicht zu beschaffen war an diesem Abend.
    Für mich zeugt dies von ehrlicher Frische.
    Das bischen Luft nach oben habe ich gelassen, weil ich mir sicher bin, dass das Duo der Paleo Liebhaber (Danke, bitte keine Bilder!) bis zu meinem nächsten Besuch vom Ende der Welt sicher noch besser kochen gelernt hat, noch mehr solch schmackhafter Zutaten aufgetan hat und wohlmöglich noch meine Erwartunshaltung übertreffen wird.
    Besonders möchte ich die offene und hilfreiche Art, die man gut aus der Paleo Community kennt auch hier hervorheben. Auf die Nachfrage nach Tips und Kniffen der Mandelkäse Zubereitung (der hat mich echt umgehauen meine Tochter weniger ;) hat man bereitwillig Antwort gegeben.
    Wir kommen wieder, leider müssen wir noch ein bischen sparen nicht um das Essen zu bezahlen, sondern das Flugticket vom Ende der Welt!
    Nochmal Danke und einen lieben Gruß nach Neukölln. Think Food.
