Great steak

I went with my family. My steak was great. It was cooked the way I had asked for. My boys had fish sticks with fries and pasta. The pasta looked like instant noodles with tomato sauce. My husband ordered a cheeseburger. Quite disappointing. The fries were good though. Good service.

Looking for a popular place for a good basic meal this is it. Lots of different cuts of steaks and chops. We had an open face cheese burger that was large and delicious with a large helping of french fry potatoes. It was just what we were looking for.

The decoration and the environment is very good. You feel yourself very comfortable. The staff, all are so kind. The foods, especially the steaks are wonderfull, so delicious. The only problem is, you have to wait for about 10-15 minutes at the door to find a place to sit.

Arrived here after reading good reviews and we weren't disappointed! The restaurant was full as it was a Friday night but we were told it would be 10/15 minute wait and were offered a very small glass of wine each on the house which made the little wait easier. It was barely 5 minutes before a table was free so... More

Nice weather, sitting outside, even though the street is very busy it is still very nice. The meat was cooked 100% to our needs and the wine that was recommended along with the meat was a very good choice. The service was very good and always someone ready to service even though the restaurant was very crowded that evening. Next... More

Ordered the NY cheeseburger, it was bland. Had no top on the burger and a crappy bit of soggy ciabatta under the burger. Worst burger in Berlin and they had no mayonnaise

Great atmosphere, welcoming and friendly staff. The steaks were excellent, burgers huge and beer and wine reasonable. Looks bland from outside but don't be put off - it's a great place to eat with lots of character.

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.
