Its not like so many other popular restaurants where you have to book months in advance, the same day will do. Even itting up t the bar, the food and service is second to none. The staff will translate the entire menu, (I had the sea bass), and take time to recommend the right wine. Go by the glass and... More

Shhh. Don't tell anyone how great Lokal is, otherwise you'll never be able to book a table at this wonderful restaurant. The food at Lokal is fantastic. The weekly changing menu is inspired by fresh, local ingredients and an imaginative chef. The Cote de Boeuf for two is exceptional and flavorful, but take advantage of the chef's amazing skill and...

A busy restaurant so would advise making a booking a few days before for the weekend. Dishes feature foods in season and cooked well. Everything is just about cooked - vegetables al dente and fish almost cooked. Flavours interesting, would recommend.

I can honestly say this was one of the most wonderful meals I have ever had.The menu was in German but the staff were patient and fully described each meal. The service was professional, prompt and unobtrusive. The pork dish was beautifully presented, the many flavours from locally produced vegetables was beyond discription. The price was very reasonable for such... More

After a week of tour group pre-selected meals I was chafing to enjoy the real Berlin restaurant scene. And what a great find this was! Fabulous, inventive creations in the chic minimalist decor of this corner cafe- with warm welcoming staff who made us non-German speakers feel at home.The owners had squeezed us in for an early dinner only 24...

Was searching for a restaurant that emphasised fresh and 'lokal' ingredients and this did not disappoint. Prices reasonable and food was top notch. Menu only available in German, but staff keen to translate. We skipped the starters and that worked out well because the portion sizes of the mains were large. We reserved well in advance and even for a... More

The best German restaurant in Berlin we have been to! The service was really good and the area where the restaurant is located is super hip. Will definitely be back!

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.
