Really welcoming

We ate here three times while we were in Berlin for the Berlinale. It is a charming and small space with great waiters and superb food. The site is a former store of some kind with little shelves lining the walls. They even have a "surprise" option in which the chef decides what you eat. We... read more

Had dinner here last Saturday night ..and it was a real treat. The food is imaginative and the service first class. The three of us chose different courses throughout and enjoyed tasting each other's dishes. Particularly noteable were the "essence of deer" and the -wild boar. I know little of German reds and was going to order a French Pinot... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and we were pleased with their choice, although we found the influence to be far more French than German than is suggested in the classification and which was our original criteria. We elected for the surprise menu which represents fair value for money at 36€ for 3 courses and 42€ for four, particular when served... More

Having been disappointed with the standard of eating out in Berlin (we were in Kurfurstendamm) we thought we'd try a more upmarket establishment. We were not disappointed by either the food or the service. Both were excellent. The menu was imaginative and tasty and definitely worth the extra cost. Our best meal in Berlin by a long way.

The reviewer who criticized the value for money obviously didn't have the business lunch - just had a super lunch for two, with mineral water, a glass of wine, coffee, for 32 euros 50 (between us), fantastic value. Thoughtful and refined cuisine, not at all the heavy dumplings we've had elsewhere in Berlin. Highly recommended.

My wife and me had diner, the menu is small but the quality was very good. The favors are very good and the wine paring was excellent. One comment that I have is that I had the fresh oysters and there where some sand in them so some more attention to cleaning them. In my next visit I would visit... More

In the center of the city, we hunted down this modest restaurant about which we had heard. We were not disappointed. Although the place is a little less spruced up that it might be, the food and service were excellent and we greatly enjoyed ourselves. Definitely a nice and tasty, German-style place to go in the city.

It is a good restaurant, don't get me wrong. The food is good, the service is professional, it is just that when you compare it to the money you pay, you are entitled to ask for more.

Antik kolonial article shop turned into a resturant, serves excellent gourmet cuisine in the heart of the Berlin city. We have visited this resturant on several occasions and were never dissapointed . The vegetables served in this returant are from a bio-farm in Dahlem. Well prepared fish is from the Havel, a river flowing around Berlin. All products are regional... More

We last went to Diekmann in 2006 during the World Cup. It is unchanged both in the high quality of the food and the service. It is located in an original grocer's shop which survived the bombings in WW2; many fixtures including the drawers which held the spices are still there. The food is imaginative and very well prepared with... More

Neighborhood Profile
Charlottenburg
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighborhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theaters close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
