Nice taste of German food..

I'm not really an expert on German food but what I had here was very enjoyable. The waitress was a bit of a cold fish but she was quite busy. It was asparagus season and they had a special menu. I love asparagus so I was very happy :) The outside is OK but the inside is very special and... read more

We had lunch here in a warm day and to eat outside in the garden was quite pleasant; the restaurant is pretty much a turistic place and to its merit is the availability of the menu in many languages. Food just ordinary, nothing special but ok.

Absolutely beautiful building - and a lovely courtyard for summer dining. Beyond that - very ordinary food. What one would expect from a very simple establishment - very plain salad dishes, an ordinary schnitzel, over-salted goulash. Beer way too warm on a hot night. And a waiter - who has been very 'matter of fact' and pompous throughout our visit... More

The location is very nice, the food is straight forward and nothing exciting but good. Would recommend this for groups or a quick after work dinner. For tourists after a day of walking its a good recommendation to finisht the day off at an informal location

It is a bit difficult to find typical German dishes in Berlin, but this is the right place for that! This is not the cheapest place in town to have a meal but the location and the yard are tempting.

A good traditional German Restaurant in the City Center around the historic Quarter Nikolaiviertel. The food is delicious, with regional and seasonal character. The service is friendly and attentive. Prices are reasonable. We sat inside in a historic buliding witha bit of a middle age character but on sunny days they open thze beer garden as well.

We were just exploring the wonderful NIKOLVIETAL AREA when we decided to have a meal and just chill out fir a while. We had seen this great looking restaurant earlier and chanced that we might get a table without booking ahead and we were very lucky, the restaurant was about three quarters full with several empty tables. We ordered some... More

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.
