Great food, cool atmosphere. The staff are really nice and the food is all home made. They don't have an extensive menu but what they have they are really good at.

The beer and wine good, and cheap.....not a massive choice( thank goodness!) The service good, although English wasn't brilliant( but that's my failing) They had a couple of musicians playing for...

Every inch of wall space is covered with old framed photographs presumably relating to the eponymous Joseph with stacks of books for sale on shelves below. Gloomy lighting, furniture and other decor seem to date from same era. Couldn't make my mind up whether it was a bar that did food of a restaurant that didn't mind if you just... More

Even of the local is nice, the service is 'detestable: it you use tablecloth on the table, you must learn to change it so it are always clean and do not have to complain to the customer if they get dirty. If you don't want to change it, please don't use it.

The restaurant is only open Monday to Friday (as we discovered after travelling half across town on Sunday!). Great atmosphere with lots of interesting photos covering the walls. The décor has not been altered in many years but just adds to the experience. The food was nothing special and I imagine they don’t try too hard as most of the... More

We visited here for lunch on our arrival in Berlin as it was only a few doors down from our hotel. Great atmosphere - very informal and delicious reasonably priced food. Our only regret was that when we returned to eat there on our last night and they were closed for the Easter weekend!

Popped into the bar by chance one late afternoon. Lovely inside with the walls filled with historical photos. Great jazz music in background.

I used to go often for lunch, but not anymore since I found another places in the area, less crowed and with a better price-quality relation. The day-menu is really poor, not so much quantity. That was ok when it was cheaper, but now they just increase the price for the same food. The staff is unfriendly and sometimes rude,... More

Named after an Austrian Jew who lived next to the restaurant who was forced into exile. Excellent sandwiches and cakes! Worth a pit stop visit.

On Potsdamer Strasse, this restaurant is like an oasis in its neighbourhood. It is 12 minutes walk from Potsdamer Platz which is very lively place to be. Very much recommended for delicious food, cosy&intellectual ambience and serious culture. Prices are reasonable. Couldn't stopped ourselves from taking pictures of all the corners. Very much impressed! I don't recommend this place for... More
