Lovely location, on a main street and just through a courtyard not far from the Brandenburg Gate and some major hotels. Pizza was excellent as was dessert and drinks and staff were also really good.

If you are looking for a nice place where to spend some time alone/with friends eat some fresh pasta and have a good time, this is the place. The food? It is tasty but not close to the best italian food you can find in Berlin. The dishes are well served and nicely prepared. The restaurant has no good ventilation... More

I really enjoyed my time in Vapiano, to where I came following a friend's recommendation. When you enter you receive a card with which you record the courses you pick. Then, you go to one of the chefs and tell him which menu item you want and he prepares it in front of you which I liked. in addition, almost... More

It's really ok not as good as the one in london but it can be practical and wholistic specially if ur a group of people and each one of u wants a different thing. The salads are really good tho

We stopped for lunch one afternoon while in Berlin. We were given cards and told to go upstairs to get our food self service style. The place was packed full so there were no places to sit. The ques for food were almost back to the stairs. Some people were queuing and some just shoving in the line. It was... More

After trying one of your valiant restaurants at potsdamer platz and zoologischer garten (super crowded, unfriendly staff and run out of pasta), we found this one which is a bit hidden and for that not so overcrowded. Staff nice, great food!

This place was so cool! You stand in front of the "chef" and pick out the pieces of your order, then the chef cooks it all up in front of you. The part I really liked was asking for basal and he picked the leaves off of a basal plant sitting right in front of me. Also, the price was... More

Neighborhood Profile
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.
