During our visit of the Gendarmenmarkt, we noticed a huge chocolatier on the corner of CharlottenStraße and MohrenStraße. Because we are chocolate lovers, we went inside. This is an amazing shop, with all kinds of chocolate. They do magic with chocolate and there were some masterpieces in the shop for decoration. There are large chocolate replicas of the Gedächtniskirche, the... More

In my experience, the shop is rather amazing but the restaurant is average. In the shop there's a huge choice of chocolate products. It is worth the visit. I am less sure about the restaurant - the interior is rather uninteresting or even unappealing. The food is good but not extraordinary, the service too. I found it overpriced for what... More

OK, so there are chocolatiers, and there are chocoholics, and there are many stores that sell chocolates....but this is THE ultimate chocolate high.....in any combination, design, flavor, you like! After you shop (and it is SO hard to resist anything here) then you can go up to the cafe and have a very decadent chocolate desert and coffee! We actually... More

Beautiful shop, amazing selection of chocolates. The staff are very helpful - if you're lucky they might let you try before you buy. Highly recommended!

This place is absolutely sublime - the chocolate shop downstairs is absolute chocolate heaven, with seemingly endless types of chocolate to pick from. We also visited the upstairs cafe on 2 occasions during our trip (we HAD to go back a second time, because it was just so good! - the cakes and hot chocolates are amazing. I would also... More

Went here to see and have a taste On the ground floor there is a chocolate shop with all imaginable and unimaginable chocolates, fun to walk around and look..and buy chocolate!. On the first floor there is a reatstaurant/cafe. We ordrered some cake (chocolate) and a plate of assorted chocolates. They all tasted fantastic! Well worth a visit!

Situated in the beautiful gendarmarket square, faasbender-Rausch is undoubtedly the best place to go if you are craving delicious chocolate in Berlin. The chocolate shop on the ground floor has an excellent selection of all sorts of chocolates and wonderful chocolate sculptures such as the TV tower and reichstag which are worth taking photos of. Best of all, it is... More

Very good chocolatier in Berlin. Went upstairs for a meal, good pasta and coffee. Pasta of the day had chocolate on it which was a very nice culinary experience. Everything of a high standard especially chocolate itself. Service a bit indifferent, waiters a bit jaded towards tourists but still pretty reasonable.

Went twice in 3 days to this impressive chocolate emporium, to the delight of my children. Service a little indifferent at times but still worth the visit to the cafe for thoughtful chocolate lunch specials and scrumptious desserts. Only bad experience was when the cleaning staff told my daughter off for not locking the bathroom door.
