This is a unique chance to taste Berlin food. For example raw pork, rote Grütze and various other very German dishes. The ambience and interior decoration also reflect traditional Berlin life. The food is not my usual choice (I was invited) but it is a five star review given they deliver what they promise.

This restaurant is housed in a place that already had a restaurant in 1270. Good winter food specialties, recommended is the goose, but certainly one should try the pear stuffed with blue cheese: beautiful to see, but even better to taste. The beers from tap are also very good.

The food was very traditional and boring. "Heavy" taste and way too much food. We were 10 people - could have ordered for 5 and still have leftovers. Took yo long time before food was served.

We have been here 2years ago and the food was really good. This time the food was just OK - very simple pub food (and in this case it is not a compliment.

In the Nikolaiviertel area of Berlin, happened upon this restaurant and it was a good find. Pleasant environment, helpful staff and good food. Venison Goulash was very tasty.

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
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.
