Charming building, decent food

We had a couple beers, a good salad, one of us had roulade and the other had schnitzel. Both meals were good. Nothing... read more

We looked this place up on TripAdvisor and we're not disappointed. The downstairs is small and cosy. The staff were welcoming and looked after us well throughout the meal. We had the Goulash and the BerlinerSpecial. Both were excellent. We also had the house beer which was hoppy and tasty. Excellent overall.

I will start off with saying that the German cuisine was really good but the two girls serving our group did not once make us feel welcome and it made us feel more uncomfortable to the point that we didn't eat our food and left as soon as possible. Not a smile from the girls serving us or any pleasant... More

Hi Sean, Thank you for giving us your feedback .. We're very sorry that they were not satisfied with our waitresses. Sorry. We would like to discuss the problem with the staff. Can you please tell us when you are a guest with us. At what time? Upstairs or downstairs? Best regards M. Schulz More

We came to this restaurant having planned to go to Brauhaus around the corner for a meal. Having received rude, ignorant and a generally passive welcome from Brauhaus, we decided to walk out and find another place to eat. We're so glad we found this wonderful restaurant set in a building dating back to the 1200s. Great setting, service and... More

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.

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

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.
