Go for food, stunning views and early drinks

It was a challenge to find the place as even a taxi driver didnt know of its existence and could not direct us however we did locate it eventually - a hidden metal door in between the building blocks so dont be put off - the entry is not very obvious.

My wife and i have been here twice, this time I had the duck, and 2 little slices of over-cooked and very tough duck arrived. Service was slow and so we won't be back...

It was difficult to find but we did it. The incredible view from a skyscraper made me fall in love with Berlin and this place. At first we thought the prices would be too high. But soon we were pleasantly surprised by the prices on cocktails, dessert and the best tartar ever eaten.

The restaurant had a small but a really great selection of food. You must try their beef tartar and pasta, and of course, a traditional Riesling from Germany is just top notch! The view was very nice and the design of the restaurant resembles urban style. The service was a bit cold, but very professional. We had drinks before at... More

The view at night is an amazing landscape of berlin and the architecture of the place is also very nice. The crowed is a bit older than usual (but I guess older folks wanna have a good time as well) It doesn't represent the berlin nightlife at all, or at least not the one I am used to (more of... More

The great ambiance, view, service of this classy -- and classic-- high-sky restaurant/attraction would be certainly magnified if only the food were...decent! Prices are not impossible but they could do much better in terms of fare... Good bar upstairs; good location near Postdam Square; excellent spot for a date --again, only if food were better, or if you don't care... More

I was in Berlin for a long weekend and wanted to visit a bar with a view of the city. My research found Solar bar offering great views of the city at sunset. The place didn't open until 6pm and the sunset was virtually over. On arrival the restaurant located on one floor was cold and lacked any atmosphere whatsoever.... More

Difficult to find Solar is well worth a visit. With good views over Berlin at night from the bar with an extensive cocktail menu and enthusiastic staff. Food was good and reasonably priced.

This place definitely seems like a in-the-know place as it is not easy to find. Off the street and behind some apartments you arrive at a large door with 'Solar' written on it. The staff inside allow you to enter, you can't just let yourself in (this adds to the intrigue). Once inside you leave your coat in the cloakroom... More

Went there just for drinks, have to same an amazing setting and view of the city. Drinks are pricey, but too many positives to worry about that. Difficult to find initially as it is tucked away, but once you've found it you'll never forget it!!!

Neighborhood Profile
Kreuzberg
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighborhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and 60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and 90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighborhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
