We had an enjoyable meal here at the start of September. It was a busy evening and the place was virtually full. However, the staff quickly found us a table and soon served us our drinks, for me; this was the best Weiss bier I have had in Berlin. The menu was fairly extensive, with the main feature being traditional... More

We went there for lunch today. We were seated promptly. However the staff was extremely rude and racist. They completely avoided eye contact with us. We tried grabbing their attention to order another round of drinks. Each waiter whose vision I managed to catch kept telling me that someone else would come to take our order. We were passed over...

Hugely busy on a rainy evening. Some waiters in lederhosen, & ditto waitresses in dirndl skirts and lace-up bodices, had me suspecting this would be a touristy sort of outfit, and I was right. Food ok, nothing special, and not particularly cheap. A tip: 'The Original' roast pork hock is ENORMOUS: with a couple of sides it could easily serve... More

My last lunch in Augustiner - last week - was the last one in this restaurant. I have invited my colleague to show him German cuisine. That was the result: 1. We have got menu after ~10 minutes of waiting 2. Then waiter passed 4 times avoiding even eye contact 3. Finally I had to call her that loud that... More

We were only in Berlin for less than 24 hours, unfortunately, but found the Augustiner down the street from our hotel. Excellent and friendly service. The beer was great! I had the pork knuckle for a main course.....it was great beyond description! My wife had the roast pork and was very pleased. Due to our short stay and rather than... More

This is a very busy restaurant so must have a good reputation. We found the menu limited but the food was OK and the service OK. Nothing special but a reasonably priced, German style meal

Came from sightseeing and had read up on this as recommended by the Lonely Planet. Sat outside and were given an English menu. Good selection of authentic Bavarian Food. Meine Frau had a delicious Berlin Potato Soup with wieners and I had a most excellent Beef Goulash with Noodles. The service was quick and attentive.. The price was very reasonable... More

We went here for our last dinner in Berlin because we wanted Augustiner beer that we liked so much on our trip to Munich. Don't get me wrong but Berliner is just so bad after all awesome beers from Bavaria. And we got it. Along with two very nice and authentic pork dishes. Pork knuckle my boyfriend had was really...

I went based on my hotel recommendation for tradition German cuisine. The menu held up, but the food was just okay. Be prepared to wait and have to give up your table by a certain time- which always rubs me the wrong way. I had the steak- which was fatty, as well as the tiramisu- which was the best part... More

Suggested by my hotel, I took a long walk and had an appetite for roast pork and dumplings. I wasn't disappointed at all. Very authentic. Fresh. Nice corner to people watch. Great dessert. Fresh baked pancake with a scope of ice cream and plum compote. I think this is a local specialty. I would go back for a lunch. Casual... More
