Surprisingly good for being in such a busy tourist area

Came here for lunch and a break from visiting the museums in the island. The service was a little slow, but we were in no hurry so it suited us. The food was really nice, we ordered the cheese breakfast, schnitzel and veal livers. One word of advice: mind the beggars, they nearly stole my friend's... read more

Never be shy about just ordering a meatball and sausages, in Germany they have the best! started our first night at 1840, and was introduced to meatballs, pilsner beer and curry sausage. Yes curry, but soon to find out it is a long standing tradition for Berlin, not spicy and very tasty. Potato salad, and german mustard, was very good... More

The food here was good, nothing amazing but there were some good traditional dishes on the menu which made a nice change. Atmosphere was great due to the bustle of the square and the local musicians which are entertaining but not overbearing. Good service and value for money.

Wanted to avoid the tourist trap restaurants in this area but had already walked several blocks and kids were hungry. Service was good. Waiter very friendly and attentive. Food was average at best. Just about what I expected. The worst part of the evening? The rat that ran from the bushes towards our table only to be chased away by... More

What a great first meal. Recommended from various trip advisor reviews, my wife and friends thought we would give 1840 a try out on our first night in Berlin. What a great meal. I can particularly recommend the Pork knuckle and the Konig Ludwig Weissbier. Great combination. I challenge anyone not to be full (and possibly not even finish) after... More

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.
