We shared the Platter Diomira for 2 persons as a family of 4 (with an additional Octopus starter) and it was heaps of quality food for us all. Attentive service and reasonable service made for a pleasant evening.

We very much enjoyed this Greek food. There were lots of choices on the menu. The pita bread was delicious. Appreciated the waiter helping not to order too much food. Liked their desserts too.

We read nice reviews about this place. We were dissappointed. There was no mousaka left. Tziziki was good. Service was poor. The bill was incorrect, as was the bill of the nearest table. Avoid this place.

I came here as it was a short walk from the hotel myself and my family were staying in. I like the area, as there are lots of nice outdoor bars and restaurants. We sat inside as it is on a busy road. The service was really friendly and the menu was extensive- it was really hard to choose what... More

Really enjoyed the mixed grill, the service was quick and friendly and a couple of complimentary ouzos rounded it off. Well recommended.

We went from the Deutsches Technikmuseum for lunch and it was a great decision! The service was always kind and friendly, the food tasty and the price ok for the amount of food. With a mix of meze and a main dish is enough for a couple. The lamb was incredible. The allergens are marked and was easy to choose... More

My wife & I were there for dinner and WOW, what a meal. We opted for a shared dish for 2, which included both starters & a main dish. The starters consisted of two different dishes, a Greek salad and a mix plate of starters (e..g tzatziki, olives, tarmosalata etc.). It was huge, more like a main dish. The main... More

We dined at Taverna Athene just by reviewing the menu on the door/window. It was close to Acama Kreuzberg Hotel, we were tired and wanted something quick and close. It fitted the bill perfectly! The food was lovely, there was quick and friendly service and the cost was very reasonable. There was even a glass of Ouzo to complete our... More

Staying in Kreuzberg

Neighbourhood Profile
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighbourhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
