We ate at Zur Rippe yesterday, and reading other reviews I'm very surprised about some comments : "touristic place", "menus in foreign languages"... My experience was all the contrary, but not for the best: I got a German menu with a poor translation in English, no explanations, the waitress nearly got me out when I asked for tap water (you...

The place in itself is worth a visit. Filled with so much bric-à-brac and kitschy items, it feels like a time capsule or a museum. I would definitely recommend going there for a couple of beers. However, the food we had was disappointing. We both ordered ribs, and although we both had the large portion, it didn't really live up... More

My husband and I almost gave up looking for this cozy little restaurant but we were happy we persisted. The lady who waited on us was wonderful and the butterfish and pork ribs delectable. Certainly worth a visit!

This place is charming, authentic, and a very good value. My friend and I went here late one night, and we had a fantastic experience. We ordered the beef goulash and a variety of pork meats with sides. The waitress was very nice and carefully wrapped up our leftovers. I would definitely go back there for some delicious German food... More

Excellent typical German food. I really recommend the pork leg (comes very crispy) and the Rote Grutze (vanilla sauce with cherry and other berries). They have English menu but not all attendants speak English. Place is small so I would recommend reservation for groups bigger than 5

If you are looking for some traditional German food - this is the place. The soups are good and the main dishes are big delicious - worth the price. Make sure you ask for the English menu of the special meals. The place looks really classy and authentic German. Worth the visit!

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.
