Dining in this multiple award-winning restaurant isn't cheap, and with good reason. Magma German Wine Bistro specialises in authentic, tasty German / Berlin cuisine, along with a huge variety (about 250 labels) of wine from all 13 wine regions in Germany.

Magma German Wine Bistro is tucked away in a quaint restored shophouse, which gives it a charming appeal, but makes it slightly difficult to locate. The small interior is divided into both the bar, and the restaurant. German inspired decor adorns the place, such as posters of the German wine regions, and the open concept kitchen draws the eye with its busy German chef and enticing aromas.

I found the service at Magma German Wine Bistro to be very good. It wasn't busy during my visit, and staff went around to tables to make conversation with customers, as well as introduce them to the various dishes that were served. Staff also were able to show me the various types of bread available for sale, and explain how to treat them. Very good service, knowledgable and efficient.

The variety of German dishes on the menu is decent, and prices befits a fine dining establishment. I found the actual execution of food at Magma German Wine Bistro to be good, in particular, the main 'star' of each done was done beautifully, like the sausages or chicken. However, the accompanying vegetables / potatoes, while fresh, are rather bland and uninspiried, simply acting as fillers / sidekicks to the star of each dish.

The quaint decor and open kitchen sets the mood for socialising over a long lunch or dinner.

Along with the wide range of wines, there is a decent selection of German beers, like this Berliner Weisse Beer With Woodruff, which has a greenish hue, and tastes of citrus, apple and wheat.

The most surprising thing about the Berliner Currywurst Pork Sausage With Spicy Curry Gravy And Schrippe Berlin Bread Roll was the dark rye bread roll, which was smooth, soft and tasty... I just had to buy more! The Currywurst Pork Sausage was well grilled, meaty and flavourful, and the dash of curry powder lifted the overall taste... Good enough even without the sauce!

The vegetables and mashed potato in the Cordon Bleu Breaded Chicken Stuffed With Ham And Emmental Cheese On Mashed Potatoes And Vegetables was rather one note, and while fresh, did little to enhance the dish. But the chicken was well executed, moist and not dry within, with the ham and cheese enhancing each mouthful... Really good!
