A Sunday evening we walked the area in search of dinner and stopped at this busy restaurant. Wanting to try some German food we decided to try Gugelhof. It all started rather well with some nice wine but we had to wait quite some time for our food, and the lack of service was an ongoing problem throughout the evening,... More

We ordered two of the specialities - the Gugelhof tarte flambee and the Backeoffe. They were probably the blandest items of food I've tried in years. My wife described it as food for sick people.

If you are considering dining at the Gugelhof, run the other direction! My husband and I tried this place based on the proximity to our B&B and the great online reviews. I walked out after our meal fuming, feeling cheated and almost in tears because I was so frustrated with every aspect of our dining experience here. My glass of... More

This was a specific destination, but an easy one to get to from the Ubahn, and well worth the trip. There was a large group (6 total) and they were able to easily seat us. I had a local fish, which was very tasty and fresh. The pate plate was also quite good with a nice assortment and good thing... More

What a friendly, helpful staff! I needed help choosing a good wine and the bartender let me taste 2. We needed guidance to choose our German dinner and again, the waiter was helpful. Atmosphere was warm and cozy. Food was excellent. Make sure to make a reservation. We tried to go back a second night and couldn't get in.

All of their staff were more than friendly. The food were good. I highly recommend this cozy cafe. We are flammkuchen and it was really delicious. We have a small baby and i could not believe how baby friendly they are. I am amazed.

The first thing I would like to say about this restaurant is with respect to the staff; they were fantastic. They were very friendly and allowed you as much time as you wanted between courses. They were obviously prepared to stay open late because just as we were ordering dessert at 10pm, having booked for 8pm, a family walked in... More

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.
