We ate Dinner here on 29 Oct 2016. We were 6 women on a weekend break to Berlin. The restaurant dining hall is large and spacious and we were excited to try the food. We were disappointed that one of our meals was not what we ordered but my friend agreed to have the meal anyway as we had waited... More

Old fashioned charm; seems similar to a lot of the German upscale restaurants. Food was average, seating comfortable, location good. The painted carving covers pretty much the whole wall. Ok for a night out.

Business meal. Excellent schnitzel . But the chocolate desserts were a bit of a disappointed. Ate here with clients. The decor is very interesting and quite interesting. The food is middle European with plenty of pork knuckle etc. On the whole the starters and the mains were good and generous, but avoid the desserts if you have room. We shared... More

Great food at reasonable prices.If you want steak then it is a lot more expensive but a very high standard. The food and surroundings are very good but there are not enough staff to meet the needs of the customer.Front of house could assist in this.

Last night in Berlin and without any restaurant reservation, we walk into this restaurant without much expectation and to our surprise, the food is pretty good, the salad is fresh and the steak is very tasty, price is average, service can use some improvement

Good menu selection with excellent preparation and choice of wine. Service very attentive. Portions seemed a little small but maybe the food was so comforting that time passed too quickly.

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
