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.

We reserved a table here mainly due to how beautifully intimate the place was from the outside. The decor felt like a family home which was such a good feeling after walking around in the snow all day. The food was also quite enjoyable, the wild rice is a particular favourite. But the service wasn't amazing at all. The waitress... More

Pasternak is a great place to go for Sunday brunch. It's all you can eat for just €12. The food is actually quite good, not like most all you can eat restaurants that serve bland, poor quality options. Here, you'll find a wide range of dishes from meatballs to fish to tasty tiramisu. Drinks are not included in the price.... More

Excellent food. Very busy during weekends, it is better to reserve a table in advance. I really enjoyed its atmosphere at lunch time when it is quieter. Service is also very good and friendly.

We stayed in Prenzlaur Berg and went to Pasternak for the famous Berlin brunch. We were not disappointed. A great experience and full of locals. You can order from the buffet lots of interesting canapé type foods, a BBQ of pork, sausages and squid cakes, fruit etc etc. AND you can order a la carte from the Breakfast menu. The... More
