A little taste of Berlin in Brandon

I've visited Germany many times when my brother was stationed there. I had the pleasure of tasting the foods from various cities within Bavaria, Hesse, and the Rhineland. I'd never had the pleasure of trying the food from Berlin until now. It's very different from the Bavarian style (which is more... read more

The stuffed cabbage rolls were recommended and they were excellent. The proprietors are very nice and they have made their restaurant a pleasant and authentic experience. We will return often.

Met my son and his wife here because they had gone before and liked it. We lived in Germany 13 years, so this food is familiar. It was decent, but pricey for what you received. Gulasch Suppe was tasty, fries were crisp, wurst was wurst. We were disappointed in the German chocolate cake ( not a German item anyway )... More

I visit Germany often to see my granddaughter and always enjoy the food, especially the sauerkraut (Heidelberg is a winner here). But right in my back yard, "Taste of Berlin" comes extremely close to duplicating the "authentic" tastes. If you like German food, you can't go wrong here.

My husband was stationed in Germany while in the Army, and said this is the best German food he's had since actually being there. We return to this restaurant often with friends and family, and have never been disappointed.

We have been here a few times, but it is very small and they recommend reservations, since they have a very large regular crowd. The food is VERY good! Staff, very friendly and can recommend selections.

Was excited to try Taste of Berlin after reading the positive reviews. Having grown up in German culture, we assumed the meal would be authentic. I had a salad which was described as "so good you will love it" from the waitress. Really? Lettuce, tomato, cucumber and green peppers with shaved carrots...right. ??? My husband had the brats with kraut... More

Was excited to try this German restaurant in Brandon. It was not what we expected. The German potato salad was very different. it was served warm but had hunks of pickles in it. The bratwurst was very delicious as was the sauerkraut and red cabbage. In all this restaurant was lacking in true German cuisine and prices were a little... More

Sorry but what did you expect. I think they do not know any German food. What a potato they know it? We currently have the Bavarian potato salad. And then we have the Berlin potato salad. Everything else tasted you, and yet we are lacking for you How can you if you do not know about German cuisine. I find... More
