Just round the corner from our hotel, at the end of a long hot day of business meetings. The tables all set out on the cobbles under tall, leafy trees, leaving just dappled sunlight to filter through. Service was reasonably efficient, if not particularly warm. The food was typical Berlin fare. Quite generous portions, but nothing stood out. A mildly... More

This was my first trip to Germany and my first really good German meal. I had the pork schnitzel which was delicious and the au gratin potatoes which were the best au gration potatoes I've ever had! Ended the meal with the apple strudel, yum! We made it here just in time as the kitchen was closing soon but luckily... More

An attractive oldie worldly restaurant in a quiet and old part of Berlin (albeit mostly rebuilt) in the Nikolaiviertel. I visited twice for dinner. The first time I ate al fresco and tasted the famous Berlin style cured pig knuckle with split peas and sauerkraut. Very tasty but sufficient for 2 or even 3 people! I liked the setting and... More

Gerichtslaube is located in the pleasant back street of the renovated Nicholas quarter, and was the former medieval Berlin courthouse. Hard to say how much of it is original, but the current building has a very authentic feeling, so if it is largely renovated, then they have done a very good job. Fortunately we had a fine weather evening so... More

I visited July 2012. We ate stuffed mushrooms, mushroom shoup (with Pfifferlinge mushroom), Kaseler and spetzl and one salad, and 4 beers. The quality was far above the average and we introduce this place to everyone!

I don't recommend the meatballs... Overcooked... Instead, the knuckle vas soft and delicious, and a very generous portion, i don't know how this two dishes can cost the same! (12? each)... Other dishes look tasty though, i think i choose it wrong... Good weiss beer although!

We decided to dine here as my husband is vegetarian and there were some decent veggie dishes on the menu, but I was mainly drawn to the deep fried pear filled with blue cheese in almond breadcrumbs and served with cranberry sauce. We were not disappointed this was delicious, mmmmm. It can be ordered as a starter or a pudding,... More

We visited this place and I can recommend it. Service was good and we all could recommend the food. We did eat liver, goulash and eisbein 1kg..! Everything was ok. Pricelevel was acceptable comparing to prices in surroundings. This Poststrasse is only 5 minutes walk from Alexanderplatz. On same street you can choose from many places. Good!

This is an old restaurant in charming Nikolaiviertel (few min walk from Alexanderplatz). Used to be a courtroom! We had a special dinner at the upstairs room (downstairs is more casual). Service was excellent, they provide menus in many different languages (Greek for us) and they are very kind (they arranged a taxi for us when we finished, came in... More
