Had a fantastic meal with super service - definitely worth 2 Michelin stars. Very competent recommendations on wine selection as well. Best lunch deal in Berlin - not to say in Germany!More

I had a 4-course dinner. Two were okay (cod, Wagyu). Two were just awful (scallops, lobster jelly/consomme), with pungent off-flavors. All these Michelin-contending restaurants should cut back on the struggle to be inventive or daring, and focus on good taste. The dining room is very...More

When I was there, everyone was dressed elegantly but in different styles So, as far as I know there is not a dress code. If you go, I think it is nice to also dress nicely for a special restaurant.
