A little jewel, away from the touristy areas of Potsdamer Platz and what amazing value! A fantastic meal for 3, a desert and wine all for under €50. Whilst there are touristy restaurants (with more interesting views perhaps) this place has much more to offer in terms of personality, friendly service and simple, hearty meals. The schnitzel (I was assured)... More

Certainly worth the walk from the U Bahn, a great early 20th century feel to this German restaurant. The food was pretty basic, typical German food the service was helpful and even gave us an English menu, which unfortunately did not contain all the items on the German one. Apart from that minor quibble, it was probably one of my... More

My husband and I went to this restaurant on the recommendation of TripAdvisor. When we arrived we were told that the restaurant was fully booked but we could have a table if we could be gone in one hour. As we were really only after a quick bite after a long day of sightseeing we gratefully accepted and were shown... More

Drawn in by the atmosphere -- you could easily imagine this as having been a gathering spot for pre-war dissidents -- we were pleased to find the menu was simple and had something for everyone (including our kids).

This is a small place but apparently very popular because we couldn't get in the night we wanted. The next day we returned for lunch and got seated though it was very busy. Good, good food. Interesting menu. I had the curry dish which was delicious. Others had Wiener schnitzel and spatzele and pronounced it delicious. The emu has a... More

In the four nights we visited there we tried almost everything on their list, everything was good. Nice intellectual ambiance built around Josept Roth, an... More

Was recommended by the apartments where we stayed to come to here for lunch. We were a group of 8 and the place was already pretty full. The staff were very friendly (especially with our limited German!) and asked if we could wait 10 mintues which we didint mind at all. Food was amazing and so was the atmosphere with... More

Very friendly and packed place with easygoing service. Guests were from all age and style - everyone happily grabbing their beers and schnitzels. The menu is simple, which I liked, the place is lovingly decorated. Staff were very friendly and welcoming.

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
Charlottenburg
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighborhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theaters close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
