The German Restaurant This German-run restaurant serves classic dishes in a light and comfortable setting on the first floor of this Qali Fatullah villa. It is also the most expensive place you can eat in Kabul at the moment. The menu changes every day. Lunch is served from 12-2pm and the evening mealtimes are from 7pm-11pm. Typically the menu offers soup (Tomato soup with cream 4 euro). The main course runs to Ostrich steak under roasted onions and jacket potato with herb butter (15 Euro) and Duck leg a l’Orange with apple red cabbage and dumplings (18 Euro). As you would expect, there is a wide range of schnitzels. The lunch time menu includes chili con carne (5 Euro), spaghetti Bolognese (7 Euro) and potato gratin (7 euro). There is a wine and beer list. A bottle of Medoc (18 Euro), Draught Becks (5  euro for half a litre/ 3 euro for a third). German bottled and draught beers cost more. The selection of puddings is more restricted. However, it includes a choice of apple pie and whipped cream (3.50 Euro), ice cream ((1 Euro) and ice coffee with Baileys (7 Euro). The chef and restaurant manager are both German and the quality of the food indicates high standards in the kitchen. The establishment also has a beer garden on the ground floor. One thing to bear in mind is the euro to dollar exchange rate. If you want to pay with green backs, prepare to see a significantly more expensive bill at the end of the meal than you may have bargained for.


In July 2003 an off the street secure car park was opened and a guesthouse next door is being worked on. Thursday night is usually an eat as much as you can BBQ for 15 euros.
