Great value and atmosphere in this cafe and bookshop dedicated to Joseph Roth. Visited at lunchtime for simple snacks e.g. 16 varieties of sandwiches plus Flammkuchens, Salads etc. Very little English spoken which makes ordering more fun and the actual food more surprising. Beer served in pots. Lovely turn of the century decor in the cafe. Cash only. 10 mins... More

The simple meal of snitzel and chips was good - the snitzel a little thin - but hot, nicely cooked, not dry and the chips crisp and not oversalted and accompanied by a simple fresh salad. Basic food, good price and hence the rating. It's not fine dining but it's not fine dining prices - tasty and filling if you... More

Found this restaurant by accident. From the moment I walked in I liked the atmosphere and decor. Staff polite, attentive and allow you time to decide what you want. Food very tasty and great value. As part of any visit/experience of Berlin people should visit this restaurant.

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.
