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

There is a great atmosphere in this traditional building. Staff are all very helpful, with good English. There is plenty of choice on the menu and all our meals were delicious. Our friend has a lactose allergy and she had great meals. (We came here for two nights.)

Servers were friendly, and more then willing to serve us a second round of drinks during our dinner. (Which is surprisingly uncommon practice in Berlin it seems). The location was quite nice with surrounding churches and cobblestone streets, and the dining hall in the resturant reflected this with its rustic style and art. The food itself was mediocre, sadly.

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.
