Lovely French Restaurant

The place is very lovely, operated by the same family for over 37 years, with some of the ceiling paintings drawn by the father himself. You feel how the family really believes in their restaurants as they serve you the food, with their individual personalities adding more to the plate. I think... read more

Great food and good service. Arrived when they opened and had no problem getting a table (on a tuesday evening). We ordered a 3 piece meal. The main lamb course was superb. We offered a tip, which the owner didn't take, stating that he already had some! Very nice restaurant, will return next time I'm in Berlin.

What an excellent night/meal! This is the best way to start this review. From the beginning until the very last minute of the meal, everything was handled and served perfectly. With a very classical top service and delicious food, the 4 plate menu was really worthy. I had already worst experiences in top Michelin restaurants. You will feel that you're... More

We'd made reservations for dinner based on the location of the restaurant (close to our hotel) and the TA rating. We didn't regret it for one second! You should definitely go, but do reserve in advance. From the moment we rang the doorbell (yes, you have to) and were received by Frau Heising, an elderly lady, we knew we were... More

This restaurant is something very unique and different from any place I have ever been. You are dining in a private dining room look a like restaurant in a style from the beginning of the 1930's. And furthermore the food is an extraordinary experience with French gourmet. You choose between a menu of three or four courses and for each... More

Visited this restaurant with friends and it was lovely experience. There were quite busy. We had an amazing time. One of the best french food I've had in Berlin. Service was little slow but I assume as they were busy that's why otherwise it was top class.

The food was excellent with 4 well thought out and prepared courses that most people will enjoy. The wine was a tad expensive but the service was excellent. I did not like ringing the bell and waiting at the door or paying cash because machine was being a problem.

I had my birthday dinner in Heising last month, returning after a break of 15 months when I was there last for my partners birthday dinner. The experience was just as memorable and we'll be back again. Contrary to other comments, the restaurant is not touristy. A drawback is NO credit cards, which is just plain silly. Otherwise, a not...

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
Charlottenburg
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighborhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theaters close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
