I had dinner here with a friend last week and was blown away by how wonderful the service was, especially our waiter Ronnie, who is legitimately amazing! Besides being attentive and friendly, he kept and reset all our cutlery when we asked for a break in between the starters and the mains, sprinkled rose petals on our table (and then... More

Big fan of Alsace and this place hits the nail on the head with excellent flammkuchen and the chocolate dessert and as a dream! Classy but not too expensive.

The Gugelhof looked like a very interesting place to eat at and we got attracted to it by the advertisement of the apple tart flambe special. So we went in to try it out. We ordered something that sounded like a cream cheese spread with onions and bacon crumble on it. And the apple tart flambe as well. So all... More

Friendly little place - good variety of food, which allows you to get a flavour of Alsatian food. They are not doing anything cutting edge, just food from a specific location. You will have an enjoyable meal, if not an exciting one.

We had a brief business trip to Berlin and out local colleagues were intent on taking us to Gugelhof in the former East Berlin region of the city. It was apparently partially made famous from President Clinton eating there. The corner location is very unassuming, and upon entry you feel like you're entering a really local neighborhood restaurant. Worn wood... More

Very nice place with traditionnal Alsacian food and wines. For the ones who loves raclette and fondue, that's the place to go ! In addition, the waiters are really nice.

Such friendly, funny and personable waiters. We just had bottle of wine and starters to share between us, but they still gave us great service.

Staying in Prenzlauer Berg

Neighborhood Profile
Prenzlauer Berg
No Berlin neighborhood has undergone a greater change than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays, thousands turn the park next to remnants of the wall into a playground for street artists, musicians, and flea market shoppers. This attracts young urban families who enjoy the balance of big city life and small-town comfort. Meanwhile, trendy, young, upper-class visitors from all over the world are attracted to the local high-end shops, cafés, and sophisticated bars and restaurants. The merits of this transformation are a favorite topic of debate around the city, but it makes for some of the best people-watching Berlin has to offer.
