This is a unique chance to taste Berlin food. For example raw pork, rote Grütze and various other very German dishes. The ambience and interior decoration also reflect traditional Berlin life. The food is not my usual choice (I was invited) but it is a five star review given they deliver what they promise.

This restaurant is housed in a place that already had a restaurant in 1270. Good winter food specialties, recommended is the goose, but certainly one should try the pear stuffed with blue cheese: beautiful to see, but even better to taste. The beers from tap are also very good.

A small little pub style restaurant with a great beer of the own do try it (can't remember what they called it). We had a variety of meals from vegetarian to carnivores lamb knuckle (shank) which is what I had.

The food was very traditional and boring. "Heavy" taste and way too much food. We were 10 people - could have ordered for 5 and still have leftovers. Took yo long time before food was served.

We have been here 2years ago and the food was really good. This time the food was just OK - very simple pub food (and in this case it is not a compliment.

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
