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.

Superb kid, service, everything!

A relaxing atmosphere with just the right balance of buzz and calm. Starters were amazing as were the mains though our soufflé dessert was really a bit too small.

This is a restaurant if you really like food as opposed to simply eating for sustinence. The quality of the food in terms of taste and presentation was fantastic and the range of ingredients and flavours really did make the mouth water. The service was faultless with all the staff having an appreciation of the ingredients that they shared with... More

I want to but I just can't deduct one star for this wine bar and restaurant. As a couple looking for sth romantic, upper class and special we found exactly the right place! We had an adapted 6 courses menu (w/o port or beef). In the end with all the extras from the Chef it became 10 courses. Portions are... More

The food here is really very good, produced with great care and attention to detail and the wine in particular is impressive. But be careful about what you are getting yourself into. I wasn't and found the concept a little bit pretentious. You don't order courses, ie starter, main course, pudding. Instead you order "food experiences" - either 4 experiences... More

Our group of four had booked online for the Weinbar and were warmly welcomed by waiting staff who were charming, helpful and very knowledgeable about the menu and the extensive wine list. We asked for wine recommendations and were delighted with the suggestions. Provenance of both food and wine was willingly explained in fluent English. The food was of extremely... More

The wine was the highlight of the meal by far. Never had better recs. We took pictures of every bottle to buy later. Food didn't live up to wine, but would go again

Rutz Weinbar is a small, friendly venue with a good atmosphere. Their mission statement is 'The rescue of German food', and I would recommend it as a place to go for authentic Berlin cuisine. Went here with my wife and daughter, I had two courses and three glasses of wine. The food was good, the service was excellent, with great... More

I had heard good feedback and so had my local friend, so we decided we would go and try it together. All the more so because I found on their website that they have one of the best champagnes I have ever drunk (Ruinart). In fairness to the restaurant, when I enquired they warned me a bottle would cost 260... More

The restaurant has high aspirations and the staff exudes enthusiasm, but the kitchen delivers overly contrived dishes that generally do not succeed. For example, an ingredient is prepared multiple ways, more technique than focus on flavor. Extensive wine list and knowledgeable staff. Very expensive.

We ate here but chose the wine bar rather than the full restaurant. We had the five course tasting menu and opted for the matching wines. Our waiter/sommelier was fantastic and we had some excellent wines, including some exclusive to the wine bar. The food was judged by our group to be excellent, some saying it was the best meal...

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.
