The main floor is at the heart of Mondiall, with Tempelhoff’s kitchen flowing naturally into the central dining area to allow direct interaction at all times. The use of black leather, antiqued mirrors and herringbone pattern textile in this part of the building references back to the glamorous ‘old ways’, while showcasing a confident contemporary reinterpretation – much like Tempelhoff’s cuisine. The Mezzanine floor meanwhile features a Chef’s Table for up to 20 guests which, with the aid of shutters especially imported from a demolished plantation in Argentina, can be transformed into an exclusive private dining area. The outer layer of the restaurant makes use of back to back banquet style seating, using tobacco colour leather, light herringbone and a lightly tanned timber, while the long bar area extends onto a wrap-around deck with café style seating to make the best of glorious summer weather.
It was our first visit to this restaurant
The setting is fabulous and the decor very New York style which we like
The place was full so very noisy and hectic
So I guess that is why the service was slow-waiter very pleasant but kept disappearing
I feel the wait time between starter and mains was far too long
The food was amazing - beautiful to look at and tasting very good -
the pork belly starter was the highlight
We will be back again
Surprised to read some comments here about the food and service. We enjoyed every moment. The Restaurant Week concept brought us here an d will definitely let us come back more often. Food, service and ambiance all great!
Great time. The restaurant is beautiful and the food delicious.
