Restaurant opposite the theatre

The team at Bestial is friendly and attentive. The restaurant is well located right by the former city walls of Oldenburg, opposite the “Staatstheater” and offers both inside and outside seating. Unfortunately the acoustics inside turn terrible when the place is full.


Bestial’s chef experiments with less usual flavour and combinations. I would say that their forte are home made pastas. My “coconut kiss” alcohol free cocktail was a touch too sweet for me, but that was to be expected.


My attempt at constructive criticism on my meal (home made pasta with fried liver and pear) was accepted and we received grappa on the house from their friendly staff.


Despite some shortcomings I enjoyed the visit and would recommend this place.
Note: Bestial is in an ideal location for a pre-theatre or after shopping coffee and serves Caffè Latte Macchiato, Café au lait etc. Unfortunately Bestial uses milk that has been killed through ultra high temperature treatment. Restaurants have fridges, so there is no need to slaughter coffee with dead white liquid, for which I rest one star from the rating.
