Great food, great company

We really enjoyed our visit here. Visited on the strength of a guide book recommendation and it did not disappoint. It's a self-service restaurant which is not a concept easily found in the UK (it's not a cafe or buffet) and you order onto cards for which you pay at the end. As is perhaps to be... read more

Was here for fast lunch, food was made right on the spot, clean and tasty with fare prices. Enjoyed the option of fresh android relatively healthy food while I was in a hurry.

tasty italian dishes with a great variaty of italian pasta types. You can tell the chef with what you want your pasta to be cooked and then he cooks it in front of you!

The concept is a good one - you have your pasta, risotto or salad made in front of you. The ingredients were very fresh and the results were good. My only quibble was the tuna in my salad nicoise was a little cold, but that was rectified by stirring and leaving it a few minutes (we weren't in any rush).... More

The concept is interesting, you stand at the counter to order your pasta, pizza or risotto and they cook it while you wait. However, if you have a busy night the time standing in line can take up to 30 minutes as it did for us. My husband and daughter got a pizza and I ordered risotto, both at different... More

Food pretty good. The concept of how to order was a bit confusing to us at first but we eventually figured it out and had a nice meal in a lively place.

Found it very entartaining watching my order being cooked to order in front of me. Yes, you have to wait a bit but so as at the regular restaurant. Food decently priced and not definetley value for money but no fireworks. Extra point for innovation rather than quality. Would come back again

Food is not so bad, but the waiter who cooks pizza (the one with red hair) is the worst that we've ever met in Berlino! We have waited our pizza for 40 minutes and when we've asked him information about he answered us that maybe we didn't understand nothing...very rude and unable person...

Every time I go there the line are huge. You have to wait long time to get anything. The food is OK but it is not worth waiting there. Find some other places around.

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.
