A michelin star restaurant with Marco Muller one of the best chefs in germany. From first impressions, our unimposing facade offers little of what lies within. From the moment you step inside, the RUTZ Restaurant opens up like an art gallery delivering a puristic rooms-within-rooms concept, Restaurant and Winebar. Elegant and yet simultaneously harmonious. The RUTZ Restaurant is located on the first floor. Here you enjoy a modern laid back atmosphere amongst natural materials and an exclusive ambience of high-end hospitality. Here you will find a perfect combination in every dish of flavor balance and creative inspiration. Our Head Chef Marco Muller is dedicated to delivering naturally sourced ingredients of only the highest standard and variety. His creative and yet well-balanced cuisine focuses on originality, naturality and aromatics. A great wine bar with a huge wine list. Our multi-award winning wine list offers over 850 unique bottlings with a primary focus on Riesling and German wines. On behalf of Michelin Star chef Marco Muller, Head Sommelier, Restaurant Manager and the whole RUTZ Team, we look forward to hosting you soon.

What a find!

Rutz just happened to be opposite our hotel but we would have travelled across the city if we had known how good it was going to be. Not cheap but worth ever euro. We ate in the wine bar and the food was fantastic. Imagine Gordon ramsay's grill and maze restraunts in London transported to Berlin... read more

The wine bar on the ground floor is an ideal spot for a pre-theatre dinner: it opens early and is served by the same kitchen as the first-floor Michelin-starred restaurant. The menu offers German cuisine, interpreted in a new, lighter way. The wine list, not surprisingly, is vast and excellent and the knowledge of any given member of the serving... More

Wine bar is downstairs, restaurant is upstairs. Terrific example of the new German cuisine: light and precise. There's a ten course tasting menu but you can leave out courses to have 8, 6, or 4. I would say 6 was about right in terms of quantity and variety. There is also an a la carte but this would be a... More

There is a reason why this place was awarded a Michelin Star. Firstly many of the other Michelin Star restaurants in Berlin were closed over the summer break or several needed to be booked weeks in advance. We had the 10 course set menu and the food was well worth the dollars. The bill came to about €400 including drinks... More

We had a lovely Saturday night dinner in the weinbar as an alternative to the Restaurant which was fully booked. It was still quite busy downstairs. The 2 members of staff were great and attentive but not intrusive. I had black pudding as a starter and fish as a main. Such a pleasure on the palate. We also had a... More

Having researched Rutz before our visit I was under the impression it had a buzzing wine bar on the ground floor and the amazing restaurant above! We booked the taxi from our hotel (regent) and he had no idea where it was but we gave him the street! As we drove through we were surprised at the area as it's... More

Friendly staff, ok service, sommelier Christoph had good knowledge, nice food, wines matched food ok except for an kabinett (to sweet) without impressing. A bit stingy with the wine.

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
