The parsely root and asparagus soups (seasonal) were tasty and garnished with baby shiso leaves, a hip touch. You may find the typical Alsatian dish of Baeckhoffe a bit bland, but hearty and well executed. The choucroute of my buddy was tasty according to his report. His duck pâté crème brûlée also very good and well garnished. Raspberries and currents... More

I stopped at this place to have some drinks with two friends while visiting Berlin. We didn't eat there but the place was fully booked so I'm sure it's really a good adress: - nice neighbourhood - very friendly service - nice decor - enough choice on the menu

Food was good, but the place just wasnt a good value. I got the feeling they were catering too much to the tourist trade. There are many places in the area which are much better suited to what I seek.

Dinner time was busy waiting time about twenty minutes. We ordered the three courses fixed price seafood dinner and pork knuckle alacarte with drinks for two. Total cost 60 euros including tips. It was the best dinner we ever had for a long time. The lady served us was very attentive and explain everything to us.

We frequently enjoy the food of Alsace and the surrounding regions. So, when we read the TA reviewers, we decided to try it with friends. I ordered the Flammkuchen (Tarte flambée Alsacienne, in French). I rarely miss an opportunity to eat it. My wife had the roasted lamb. One of our friends had the Tarte Spezial, a Flammkuchen with assorted... More

Nice, non-hipster authetic restaurant. We were looking for some german food and found this alsacian restaurant (ok german/french depending on the century). The pumpkin soup was literally the best I have ever tasted, schnitzel was good, too. The stew (Bächeoeffe sp?) was just okay - kind of a bland stew. Our server was lovely, and the atmosphere was really pleasant... More

One of the two best meals we had in Berlin - the other being in the nearby Restauration 1900, Husemannstr.1. Traditional but interesting and hearty. On our had fish stew, duck pate, cod & venison. Staff are warm and friendly. We had a baby with us and even when he started crying , they were charming. Booking ahead is absolutely... More

We went here on tripadvisor reviews and it was a great evening spot. A little out of the centre but we could walk from our hotel. We both had the lamb steak, whole warm fig and goats cheese starter, it was the best starter i have had in a very long time. Perfectly cooked small med rare lamb steak, beautifully... More

Don't miss the Wiener Schnitzel and try the apple tart. Definitely one of the best meals we had in Berlin. Service was also great.
