great meal, cute place

We had a wonderful meal here. Off the main drag but worth going. The place was packed with a very young crowd. The service was attentive and the food delicious. We had friends with who were vegetarian and they had a variety of choices for them.

Thursday evening, the place was packed. Glad we had a table reserved. The drinks were nice, regular metropolitan prices (which is in fact quite spendy for Berlin). But the food lived up to the good critics.Very good spot in this area, but still spendy.

This is a wonderful place. Lovely, imaginative food and a good, reasonably priced, wine list are important and this place has both. Add a great location, quirky interior and fabulous service and you have Lokal. I'd love to go back soon!

There is nothing excessive in this fine restaurant where modernity meets tradition both in ambiance and in gastronomy at the highest level. The bread is poetry and the schnitzel and vegetables will take you to another level. The fish is light and with delicate refined taste. Finding a table will be your only challenge.

We had eaten at some traditional German restaurants during our visit to Berlin but also wanted to try some modern German cuisine & Lokal appeared to fit the bill. It was set in a quiet street not far from our hotel & was very light & airy in appearance inside & am glad we booked as there were no spare... More

We went there in a Weekday night. While we arrived, we're really glad that we've made a reservation first... It's like a hundred people in the restaurant! It's a little crowded and because of the numerous guest, we have really waited for a while for the menu and order. However, the food fixed everything. It was almost the most delicious... More

Fantastic location on the "back streets of Berlin" yet still close by and easy to find. The service was very good and the waitress was very helpful and spoke good English and was able to translate the menu for us. The restaurant was mainly full of locals which in my view is a good sign as it must be good!... More

The food was very creative and delicious and there is a wonderful vibe in the restaurant. We were tourists but may have been the only ones. I am vegetarian and they had a number of options. We sat at the bar which was fine but if you want a table you'll have to reserve at least a few days in... More

We went early for dinner but the place was already packed. Two table of guests left but we were told that they had reservations and were offered seats at the bar. We gladly took them as it seems extremely popular with the locals. Menu was in German but one of the female staffs took time to translate to English. Soup,... More

We were lucky to be seated without reservations because it is apparently very popular. The maitre de was super kind to translate the German menu word for word! I felt badly he did that but he didn't complain. The food was very good. The beet soup was pretty amazing. So was the zucchini salad. My chicken dish was superb. The... 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.
