After 4 weeks in Germany we were becoming a bit bored with the very good, nourishing, but bland food that seems to be German fare - and it is usually that or Italian. Who wants to eat Italian in Germany though? The chef here has a bit of imagination and quite a bit of the artist about him/her. We both... More

"Der Wintergarten" is exeactly the place you would never expect right in the center of the city. A famous building and a contemprary garden just two minutes from vivacious Kuhdamm. Although Peter and his wife already ran a 1 star Guide Michelin Restaurant, for more than 20 years this place offers day to day breakfast, lunch and dinner always from... More

On a bank holiday in May we decided to try out their breakfast. Portions are ok but probably not if you are hungry. Rolls and croissants are average, but the pan cakes were great. A small glass of fresh orange juice sets you back just under 5 €. Wow. So bring your credit card if you need to feed z... More

we visited on the recommendation of some friends, before going to the Kathe Kolwitz museum very close by and had an excellent breakfast in this characterful café. There's an interesting bookshop underneath.

Went there for the excellent reviews, but it was a pure disappoint. Menu slapped on table, food quality is your average Denny's. Recommended only if you don't mind over priced food and zero service.

We had breakfast in the garden. Very quiet atmosphere next to the ku- damm. To be advised, would visit again.

We had read about this place and had to try it so we went here for brunch. Despite it being completely full, they told us to go for a walk and they would have a table ready in 20 minutes which they did. Great service. The food was good if not spectacular. The breakfast was a little boring but good... More

We've been to Berlin twice and both times we've eaten breakfast here every day but one. We also came back for dinner in the evening and I have no doubts that we'll eat here again next time we're in town. Not only is the wintergarten a very pretty place to sit and eat, the pancakes are AMAZING. Yes, worthy of... More

A lovely setting (in the Winter garden) - delightful and helpful service and a thoroughly enjoyable menu. Very tasty.
