I came here on a sunny saturday (late) morning after visiting the beautiful market on Kollwitzplatz. I liked the extremly friendly service and the great breakfast in a quite side street not too far away from Kollwitzplatz. Breakfast was just perfect, not too much and nicely presented. Tea was served in the typical russian tea Cup. I'll be back one... More

Went to Pasternak with 2 colleagues on a Tuesday night in June (we sat outside) - and a very positive experience, both in relation to the food and the service. "Difficult" (in a positive way) to decide from the menu as there were many delicious courses. But we got great recommendations from the waiter - and the 3 of us... More

The peal of bells heard in this beautiful street made the atmosphere at this quirky Sunday brunch restaurant where outside a BBQ sizzled. We had no idea what most of the foods were but we tried everything and the huge salmon in the middle of the spread was brilliant. The staff were easy going and location off the beaten track.

We had a very good experience in this restaurant. The dishes were very varied and refined (soups, fish, fish eggs, beaf...). We made the whole meal drinking little shots of Vodka. Very nice waitress and nice atmosphere with the pianist playing russian songs.

Not only their famous Sunday brunch is well worth a visit. Anytime this pleasant little restaurant can give you a taste of traditional Russian dishes. But don't forget to leave room for desert. The Russian pancakes are to die for.

We enjoyed a meal here on our first night in Berlin. The staff couldn't have been friendlier and the food was good with generous portions. The pianist was an added bonus.

I visited this small restaurant after my hotrl Ackselhaus recommended it. I tried their Ivan menu with 4courses for 25eur, which was very tasty, fresh, nice decorated and quit big for me. See my pictures. They offer good georgian wines and beer from Moskau. Young staff, very well visited by locals, nice place and nice terrace during good weather.
