A Great crash course in German wine and cuisine

We went to this place after reading some reviews on here. We arrived without a booking and were greeted with a smile. The waiter took our jackets, seated us and offered water straight away. Being from Australia and not speaking German he swiftly grabbed us English menus and explained the philosophy of the restaurant. We ordered 2 entrees and as... More

Went to this restaurant on the recommendation of a friend. Wow! Food is delicious and service is excellent. Everyone is very friendly there and I had a truly memorable meal in Berlin. It's in a cool area of the city with many bars nearby. Very artistic and creative area. I would definitely return to Rutz when back in Berlin.

The food was fantastic and so was the service. The athmosphere was not good enough for a restaurant that easily will cost you more than 300 euros pr person. Noisy room and the tables where set very close to each other. At times (because of bad acoustics and loud guests) it was hard to hear what the waiter was saying.... More

A poor welcome to what would appear to be a good and interesting restaurant, Michelin Star upstairs and wine bar/ bistro downstairs. Highly recommended and booked for wine bar by concierge at our 5* Hotel we were accused on arrival of being an hour late. Not true - it was booked for 7:30 not 6:30. With difficulty a poor table...

We visited the Rutz Weinbar in January with friends. We booked online and the staff called on the day of the booking to check our reservation. We ate in the wine bar and the food was fantastic - try the black pudding! The wine water takes us through the wine menu, was extremely knowledge and recommended a fantastic sauvignon blanc... More

One of the best restaurants in the town, but prepare for a thick bill :-) The food is very surprising and absolutely delicious, the wine pairing was also great. But a dinner for two (6 and 8 courses) worth of 450 EUR is a bit overpriced.

This is one of the best restaurants I have visited - ever! The food is just great. We had the "Inspirationsmenu" with wine pairing. The service is also fantastic. Very relaxed and not so stiff even though it has got a Michelin star.

Rutz has a michelin restaurant upstairs and a wine bar downstairs. I ate downstairs. This place has good reasonable priced food on the menu. I had a glass of 2013 trocken Mosel that had was a bit unbalanced on the acid side to start with. Then I had a lovely little cucumber salat that was very delicate. With it I... More

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.
