My partner and I fancied some red wine away from the thunderstorm we'd been caught in, so came here for a drink. The surroundings and the interior was pleasant enough, the wine was good and the nachos were decent too. My partner gave the waitress a 20 Euro note to cover the 15 Euro bill and she promptly disappeared, never... More

I went here for an early evening meal with friends as it is near the Fernsehturm (the iconic East German TV tower) which they wanted to visit. The menu was typically pan-European standard stuff (burgers, chicken of various sorts, plus schnitzel, served with McCain fries or wedges), the choice of drinks somewaht better. Service was pleasant, if slow, and when... More

Had such a bad experience with my girlfriend. Dreadful service, bad food and everything takes thrice the time its supposed to take in a normal restaurant.

As we enjoyed Alex at the Sony Centre, we decided to pop in to this one for lunch but regretted it. The woman who served us asked us for our drinks orders but didn't ask if we wanted food. She kept trying to speak to us in German even though I think she knew English. I do feel bad about... More

We visited the Alex in the Sony Centre earlier in the week and enjoyed it. Spotted this one as we were nearby around lunch time. Waitress immediately made everything awkward, serving us with a scowl on her face and generally looking as though serving us required the world's effort. After taking our drink order the waitress disappeared without even adding... More

The staff at this restaurant were so rude, acting as if it was a bother to serve us. The pizza was terrible, barely edible. The cheeseburger was okay, nothing special. I would not recommend this place.

There was one server for about 20 tables, the food came reasonably fast, but the schnitzel was soggy on one side. Portions were good, no table water, bottled only for 2.50 euro. It took 25 minutes after we told the waiter we were finished to get our check. much longer than i'm willing to wait for what was basically cafeteria... More

The restaurant looks like such a nice place...modern décor and ambient lighting. However, we waited over an hour to get our food and then it really wasn't that good. The serving staff was rude and acted as though we were a bother. I would not go again!

We were ignored by a very rude waitress, and when she did come over she was even worse. The food was OK, but cold. We had one nice waiter at the beginning, but it went down hill from there. To top it off, she even tried to short change me out of €10. Do not go there!

This is a large bistro-style restaurant near Alexanderplatz. (There are other branches in other parts of Berlin). On our first visit the staff were very efficient and friendly. We had a good breakfast buffet with orange juice, cereals, yoghurts, egg, bacon, sausages, cold meats, breads - for 6.95 Euros compared with 19 Euros at our hotel. Coffee was extra at... More
