We had been told about this restaurant by (funnily enough) my husband's dentist. It is definitely worth a visit - but be warned: you must book in. Walk in's are not accepted. Whilst I was very happy with my meals, my husband had chosen the steak for his main and he was disappointed. He said it... read more

Based on the other places we've eaten in Berlin this place is underrated on Tripadvisor. The food is very well presented and very tasty with seasonal dishes. The service is impeccable and very attentive. If you are looking for a fast, simple and cheap meal this is not the place. The setting is also excellent in the Reichstag roof.

Make a reservation to dine here and you can skip the lines and enter the Reichstag Building, look around, grab an audio guide and take the tour before you dine. You are required to present your passport - so don't forget it -- or you can't enter the building Food was very good - they have a kids menu if... More

The location is spectacular, the food and wine were copious, delicious, and good value. Sadly the service was very slow (and we weren't in a hurry), but still it was a world class evening out.

The view makes this restaurant. The appetizer and dessert were better than the main. It was awesome not to have to wait in line to enter the Reichstag due to reservations here. If you make reservations online, be sure to check your spam folder - we almost missed our reservations because we never saw their response.

The location speaks for it self, the food / wine was very good, and the view of the city is super. It tok us 30 minuts to get from the security check to the restaurant because of all the people going to the glass dome, remember that we arrived a bit late at the restaurant.

You cannot fault the fab location with spledid views over Berlin. Mind you, it gets really hot in summer time- best to bring sun glasses. After having booked weeks ahead by email, having gone through airport- style security our expectations were high but were not matched by the absence of professional service. Our party of 5 had to wait for... More

We had lunch in the restaurant and it was well cooked and presented. We limited ourselves to their salads and they were fresh, interesting .

A great idea but it's basically a glass box on top of the parliament building, and for some bizarre reason they have built it without air con. So, whenever sun is out it is basically a greenhouse. We went when Berlin was having a mini heat wave and it was so bad no-one finished their meal as it was just... More

Good restaurant at the top of the Reichstag building. If you have good weather you will see the layout of Berlin through the wrap around ceiling to floor glass walls. They have a good selection of German wines the service is great and regimented. The food is middling but expensive for German standards. We spent a long time 20-30 minutes... More

Staying in Mitte

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.
