We dined here on a Sunday evening. It was busy and has a great atmosphere much to do with the art deco interior. The menu is extensive and as a small group all our dishes were served as requested and everyone was pleased with the food quality. Service was excellent.

An easy walk from the Brandenburg Gate, this restaurant is very well located with an old world ambiance. The menu offerings are varied and appealing. Our group of 4 enjoyed Beef Roulade, Mushroom Risotto, Schnitzel and Salmon. The white / dark chocolate mousse was a delectable ending to the meal. We found the service to be exemplary and the prices... More

Fantastic meal here. First class cooking, great ingredients and cheerful and very friendly staff. German specialities form part of a good menu, though choice for non-German food eaters is available. Good wine, beer and service. Great surroundings in which to relax and no hurrying diners on. Highly recommended!

After a long day of travel and walking around Berlin, wanted to enjoy bistro type of food and wine close to our hotel. So walked in, without reservation we waited only 2 minutes for our table, even it was busy night and place was full. Effective and friendly service. Food was good as expected. Wine list short but good matches... More

Right next to the Komische Oper, this is a good place for a pre-theatre meal and a post-theatre drink. A traditional menu, mostly well done - although I would have swapped my rather gloopy gnocchi for my partner's delicious-looking Schnitzel. Sensibly priced and a really nice atmosphere.

Really excellent service and accommodating. Menu has something for everyone, be careful how much you order though! Great little starter is a jug of gherkins. Ideal location if you've been pounding the streets of Berlin on the corner of Umter den Linden and Friedrichstrasse.

Menu is quite varied ( we had the ox cheeks ) and dinner was tasty, with first-rate service. However, portions are small, so you should order individual plates and not share. Location is about 1/4 mile from Brandenburg Tor. Restaurant has an elegant, art-deco atmosphere. On the whole, while the ambience is nicer, the food is not quite as good... More

Great service and great atmosphere. My husband and I enjoyed the traditional cuisine. We made reservations from our hotel before we went and we were glad that we did. I would go to this restaurant again.

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.
