We wanted to try something different and got what we were hoping for. There are not that many Russian restaurants around but judging by what we ate at Pasternak this is really a shame. I would eat here more often if I lived closer by. We started with a shared starter plate and maultaschen and both were great! We were... More

As usual i'll start my review by mentioning that i'm a chef myself, which makes some experiences potentially problematic. And second: i'm russian born. Usually i avoid Russian restaurants at all costs because for some reason, they are never good. This time i had friends from USA visiting and i wanted to introduce them to Russian cuisine. I did cook... More

This place offers russian food with high quality. The bortsh is very tasty (4.70€) and the wareniki are freshly made and delicious (11€). The atmosphere there is romantic with a person playing piano during the evening. The place is easily crowded so booking a table is highly recommended.Staff is thoughtful.

Love the place and the food. Remember to book a table in advance! One of the best restaurants in the Prenzlauer area.

A group of nine of us were fed well whilst thunder raged overhead. One person's meal sadly took too long to get to the table, but everyone else was more than satisfied particularly the two who chose salmon.

Pasternak offers a nice selection of Russian dishes (including some Jewish ones). Located in Prenzlauer Berg on a quiet corner across from the first water tower in Berlin and its lovely park, it's a perfect location for a relaxing meal. We ate there on a warm summer night, sticking mainly to the wonderful starters and dumplings. We enjoyed the "Bauer"... More

A russian restaurant with a terrace at Kolwitz Platz. We ate cheese pelmenis (russian dumplings) and mixed pelmenis (stuffed with either spinash, poatoes or cheese) and it was really good. Finest (but more expensive) than the Bar Gagarin ones (just next to it). Service was not friendly but neither was it rude. Un restaurant avec terrasse sur la Kolwitz Platz.... More

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
