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.

It is the best one pear I've ever had. Everything else is also good incl staff and service. But pear is the MUST! Goulash is also tasty!

The courtyard at the front of the restaurant is lovely but gets very busy in the evening. The waitresses were a little unwelcoming, service was a little on the poor side, and the food was very average if not oversized even by Berlin standards. The baked pear with cheese house speciality was equally underwhelming and was pretty tasteless and undercooked... More

The room of the restaurant is really nice with a vaulted celling and a cosy atmosphere. We add the pumpking soup (5.50€, very gingered), herrings (10.90€, nice dressing and large portion). The beer of the house is enjoyable. The staff is nice and portions are generous, lots of customers tried the pork knuckle (1kg!) and seemed to enjoy it.

This is a very good German restaurant that can be very busy in the evening. We had dinner here twice and were very lucky having a table without reservation. It is situated in the Nikolaiviertel (Nikolai Quarter) and just a half of minute walk from St. Nicholas Church, Berlin’s oldest building. The menu begins with an introduction to the history... More

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
