BERLIN (AFP) - Germany's first restaurant for dogs and cats opened in Berlin over the festive holidays, drawing charges the luxury eatery for furry friends is "decadent".

"Does Berlin really need a gourmet restaurant for dogs?" asked the top-selling Bild daily.

Pets Deli offers its tasty treats for domestic animals in the upscale neighbourhood of Grunewald, with meals priced from three to six euros (about S$5-10), and treats like cupcakes for four euros.

They are sold to go in plastic trays or can be consumed on-site, in metal bowls set before homey wooden logs, while their owners have a coffee.
