"Seems everyone came here for lunch!"

Great food, Nice view, Reasonable price, rather Slow service. Had 2 superb dishes from the week's menu -- fried salmon with olive mashed potato & fried mushroom risotto. Enjoyed the nice ambiance & great view of the city from all around glass windows. Maybe because we came on a peak lunch... read more

Been here once for food and a few times for drinks. Wasn't impressed by the food at all, I had a mushroom pasta dish which consisted more of spinach than anything else. Also felt that most of the dishes on the menu were over priced compared to some other restaurants. Same goes for the cocktails - a wide selection to... More

Yes, the view from this bar is great, but that is about all we enjoyed from the experience. We went around 10pm on a Sunday evening (over the holidays) and the place was packed. After placing our order, we waited about 15 minutes for the drinks to arrive. When they did, 1 drink was missing (4 drinks for 5 people)... More

Bernstein's is located on the top floor on what is now a TK Max right in the middle of Bielefeld. Reached by an elevator, or stairs if you're feeling fit, on the right hand side of the building it is a really good find. First and foremost the views over Bielefeld are brilliant with an excellent outside seating area which... More

Great meal in an atmospheric restaurant with panoramic views over the city. If I'm back in Bielefeld I will return to this restaurant.

Very fun eating here. Great views of the city and country side. We also got great service during lunch for a group of 10. And the food was fantastic - fun to have a typical German meal.

I love this restaurant because it is placed in an amazing rooftop. The view of Bielefeld from the restaurant is really nice!! The drinks are nice but a little pricey! Either way this is a cool hangout place for the summer!

Two of us went here on a Saturday night. We arrived at 1930 and were able to get a table outside. The food was excellent, some of the best I have had in the area, I tried the carpaccio of beef (which was a little odd as it was served with warm cherry tomatoes) but still nice and the goats... More
