We were ten for a drink and som snack on a saturday just after opening. Snacks and drinks - everything was as it should be. Very clean toilets and a cosy place with lots of atmosphere. We had sausage, cake and ice-cream. Drank beer, coffee, wine and hot chocolate.

Visited here on a bar tenders recommendation. Wasn't disappointed. Fantastic food and great staff! Good beer selection as you'd expect too!

Wonderful traditional German food. With an extensive menu to choose from we were spoilt for choice. I ordered the meatballs and my husband ordered the wild bore medallions, both dishes were delicious with just the right amount of food. The wine was a good quality as was the beer. The restaurant had a vibrant atmosphere and the decor was traditional,... More

We ate here twice while we were in Berlin. On one occasion downstairs and upstairs for our second visit. Loved the building. The service was very good. We chose venison goulash and calves liver......both delightful. Also had a superb starter salad and my husband chose a savoury pear starter (speciality dish). We thought everything was really good. The price was... More

While most tourist-focused restaurants are pretty bland, relying on their location to drive business, Zur Gerichtslaube is actually a great little place in the Nikolaiviertel. It serves traditional Berlin food, and the clientele is a mix of Germans and foreigners. The 'Berlin plate' is a great option if you're very hungry, but generally the flavour combinations work very well, and... More

We were wandering around and found this quant fun place for dinner. My husband really likes true German food and he loved what he had. I tried something that he recommended - wiener schnitzel and really like it. A good place to sit back and relax. Some big groups but it was an outdoor restaurant that was shaded by trees... More

First night in Berlin, looking for a decent place to have a bite to eat and basically stumbled across this place. Only the downstairs was open (Monday night) but the place was quite full. The decoration and ambiance is everything you would want from a typical German pub/dining area. Small enough to be cozy and big enough to eat in.... More

The good: the place is beautiful and the food was ok. At least some of it. The bad: very mediocre game soup. cold, unfriendly, slow service. Paid about double what we paid for other dining experiences in Berlin.

Neighborhood Profile
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
