This little French restaurant in Schöneberg is really a must if you like French food. The interior is like 1950´s style and the staff really welcoming. French, German and English spoken by the waiters. All dishes are served in cocottes - this helps keeping the food warm during the entire meal. We had two different kinds of muscles for starters....

Another place we wanted to try and that we will return to! Definitely try the eggs w Fois gras as a starter or the onion soup. The whole menu sounds fantastic and it's difficult to decide what to go for.. The wine list is small but sufficient and they have several open wines as well. Unfortunately we were too full... More

I've eaten there a number of times (the restaurant is within walking distance from my place). I really enjoy it, which is why I keep going ! The starter "Egg Benedict with foie gras" is definitely one of my favourites. The staff speak French, English and German; dishes are served in small stewpans ("cocotte" in French, hence the name), and... More

This is a small French restaurant tucked away from the centre of Schoneberg. The maitre d was hilarious and contributed to this place having a nice relaxed vibe rather than a stiff French one. The place was busy with a fun crowd the night we were there. The food was really good without being amazing with high points of the... More

We had a terrific dinner on a rainy night. Food was good, nice people, service was very friendly and knowledgable, great atmosphere, good value. All-in-all a great choice. We were staying in Mitte, so La Cocotte was a bit out of the way and on a street we wouldn't have found without a taxi. Still, it was worth the effort.... More

Visiting the "La Cocotte" since 5 or more years it is still a fine place to eat some kind of authentic rural kitchen with a touch of snotty-friendly-french atmosphere. The guests are well mixed, mostly people from the area, better situated and "in their best years". The menu card changes depending on the season and offers a variety of typical... More

I eat here every time that I am in town and always come back. This time the atmosphere was a bit quiet but the owners were away, which I guess is the reason. I had the Foie Gras, yes it is duck not goose and priced very reasonably(see previous review) The menu is a la carte and not fixed unless... More

Just not worth bothering, or rather, we feel conned. We had checked their menu on Internet but the experience was very different from the restaurant offered on their website. We were led to believe they offer a good selection of a la carte menus but instead found out that they offered a limited range of set menus. We suspect that... More

We wanted to celebrate my fiancé's birthday in a nice french restaurant. So we went yesterday to "La cocotte". First it seemed promising - a cute neighbourhood, a diverse menu, real french owners and staff in the heart of Berlin. But what a disappointment. The food was medium minus. The famous french "foie gras" - the flag dish in any... More
