We had dinner here on night 2 of our trip to Berlin. We hadn't made a reservation, although we did intend to come here, but found a table outside. The inside tables were all reserved and the queue for tables was down the street when we left - so booking recommended. 3 of us are non meat eaters. There was... More

One of my favorite activities when I travel is to find an authentic restaurant in the traditional cuisine of the region. I struck gold with this one! From the moment we walked in (an hour late because we had gotten lost) they took excellent care of us. We were two women and the portions were huge, so we shared the... More

My husband and I stumbled upon this restaurant and they were able to squeeze us in between reservations. We enjoyed our meal so much, we made reservations for our final meal in Berlin. We have traveled to multiple cities in Germany and Zur Letzten Instanz is still our most favorite. The food, service, and experience were exceptional and memorable.

We chose this restaurant for our group of 6 based on the reviews. When we were handed the menu, it was scary. We couldn't find anything to order but upon further examination we found multiple choices. The meatballs were very good. My husband ordered the fish stew and it was also good. Our friend had the short ribs ( a... More

Had a look before going to Berlin for a traditional German tavern, this place was fantastic! The service was great and despite the place being fairly busy and quite small, we were well looked after. The food is brilliant and the portions sizes are exactly what you would expect for traditional German meal- enourmous! Highly recoomended

We wanted a great traditional meal & experience and we received it here. We made reservations and did see people get turned away since it was such a small tavern. The food portions were huge and each meal was delicious. I personally loved the homemade meatball dish. The waiter was really funny and cracked jokes throughout the evening. He helped... More

Found it on Tripadvisor and it sounded just the sort of place we were looking for on our Berlin break. They were unable to accommodate 6 of us on the night we went but it looked so good we booked a table for the following night. We were not disappointed. Service and food were fantastic. The waiter was great at... More
