Good dining experience with special view

The Solar Restaurant is situated in a regular building where you wouldn't be looking for it, but that counts for more restaurants and bars in Berlin. The food was good, not outstanding but surely fine. The view is a plus, especially when you are visiting the city first time.

We read about this bar on TA and visited last Friday. It isn't too hard to find (go through the car park barrier and it's straight ahead). We were welcomed by the reception staff who directed us to the lift - this may now be my favourite lift! With floor to ceiling glass, it glides up to the 17th floor... More

Close to the Potsdamer platz. The restaurant is famous for it's views. We had drinks first and then a good meal at the restaurant. DJ played lounge style music all night. Great location for a night out.

I have to admit I had read some bad reviews about the kitchen but my experience was honestly very good. I ordered the roasted jumbo prawn, the roasted beef filet and the cheese cake foam. Both the starter and the desert were really excelent and everything was originally set. I didn't order wine but the menu offered at least 5... More

Although we didn't eat in the restaurant Solar also has a fabulous bar for drinks at sunset. A sky bar with 360 degree panoramic views across the whole city. Chic and modern but laid back, the bar has tiered seating so everyone can appreciate the view. Delicious cocktails including some classics and some unique ones. The staff were very accommodating...

I paid this restaurant a second visit this April. The first visit was already in 2013 when the restaurant was quite new and I was curious if the standard still was as high as then. I wasn't disappointed this time either. Unlike last time I did find my way this time - it is not very easy to find the... More

When the taxi driver pulled up amongst the residential high rises, we feared that we were in the wrong place. But then we were directed to the lobby and the outside lift, taking you up to the penthouse. With breathtaking views of the city over sun set, the cocktails were a perfect accompaniment. The staff in the restaurant were knowledgeable,... More

Well, here is my review now that I have been there for the second time. What I loved about this was the outdoor lift, the spectacular view, and the great sense of interior design of this place. What disappointed me was the food and wine: it looked nice, but tasted pretty average. I even experienced the headache you get from... More

The service was really good. The food was excellent. We went up to the bar after dinner and enjoyed the views of the city. You beed to make reservations in advance for dinner, especially if you want a window table.

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. We had couple of drinks at the bar followed... More

Staying in Kreuzberg

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.
