We came here for drinks and cake on a lovely autumn day, we sat above deck and it was amazing. I've heard (from my flatmate) that winter they have an open fire downstairs. They have a daily menu with a veggie option and a meat...More

Really cool to have a drink when weather is good. Cocktails are good and the place is really beautiful inside and outside

Visited this unique restaurant, moored in a Berlin canal, with a larger group booking. The buffet food was pretty awful. While this is supposed to be a "seafood" restaurant, we were served other items that were only warm and not particularly appetizing. There was a...More

We sat upstairs for a family gathering. Food, coffee, and drinks were good and the service friendly, not exactly super-fast, though. Great view (with great weather).

We went to there with my friends on sunday. The waiters, the ambiance and all the seafoods were perfect. There was a musician man and the weather was sunny.

Had drinks and snacks at van loon yesterday as it was docked in its usual Paul lincke ufer location. Wonderfully relaxing location, food looked great and will definitely return as the open kitchen and restaurant below deck both looked very promising.

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
