Description: The dining room of the Bieberbau bears the signature of the sculptor / master plasterer Richard Bieber. He sat down in 1894 so that a monument. Driven from his old workshop in Leipziger Strasse by the new Tietz, he built in the Durlacher Street, a new studio building. Expressionist painters like Pechstein and Kirchner lived and worked here. The Bieberbau served as an inn for painters, neighbors and guests, and at the same time as a showcase for plastering sector work: An army of masters and apprentices created sculptures that Bieber's customers as a model and inspiration and at the same time the construction of the restaurant guests should serve. In war, the house burned and lost its once magnificent facade. Miraculously, but remained Bieber guest room completely spared. The restaurant has developed in the postwar period to a slide fail to fall into a deep sleep later. From the Bieberbau was awakened by the chef and owner Karl Kling until 1967, with a passion for the interior and the tradition of the restaurant. In 1986, he restored the Bieberbau loving. Since then, the dining room is a listed building. Today the ornamentation of Bieberbau stores fascinating testimony of a forgotten art form. Guests who appreciate the atmosphere of the modeled stucco truss and dine in the imaginative decor, Richard Bieber are grateful for his work. This is probably why the restaurant carries to this day the name "Bieberbau". The restaurant is a unique jewel in Berlin's gastronomic landscape.

“Totally deserves its bib gourmand”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Located in a somewhat strange (suburbia) neighborhood a bit outside of centrum Berlin (25 min by subway from Unter den Linden and then a 7 min walk). Try to combine dining here with visiting the nice park.

The menu consists of two five course menus from which you can get a 3 or 4 course subset if you are less hungry. I was hungry so I had the 5 course menu with wine, bubbles and coffee. The food was absolutely delightful. Style is modern german inspired food from a chef that obviously is aware of contemporary trends in the trade and uses then where appropriate. The bread was homemade and of good quality. And al the dishes had a near wow effect to them. I dare to say that the experience was all in all better than some of the 1 michelin star restaurants I have eaten at around the world and is comparable with similar price places in my hometown (reference is a usual Belgium/Brussels).

A small hint to the place from my side is that it might be nice to offer an menu with selected wines. although there were enough 1 glass options to choose from.

Oh yes, the price for all this: 5 course menu + aperitif + wine with each course + desert wine + coffee (with nice homemade biscuits) = 105 euro (a total bargain)

“Excellent, Creative Food; Amazing Spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2012

Recently went to Bieberbau with our two sons at the recommendation of our hotel (we asked for good, modern German food, in an authentic spot). Although a bit out of the way, Bieberbau is definitely worth the trip. The restaurant is run by a husband and wife team and the menu is a very creative, modern take on German cuisine. There are 3-, 4- and 5- course menus -- all extremely reasonably priced given the quality. We opted for the 3 course and, taking into account the amuse-bouches, suprise offerings and cookies from the kitchen, was more than enough for us. An excellent, German/Austria focused wine list. The restaurant is in a stucco showroom from circa 1900, which is worth the visit alone.

“crazy, very appealing, totally unexpected”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2011

if you wanna go for something totally different in Berlin, go to BIEBERBAU, in a quiet street in an area which is not hip at all, you'll find some of the best and most interesting food in Berlin, in a historic, typically oldstyle Berlin setup, the Bieberbau chef is giving you multifacetted, very unconventional taste adventures, very good attentative service and a well selected wine list are adding to the pleasure

“First class cooking, attentative staff in beautiful location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2011

Very nice restaurant - a "hidden" gem. First class food and service. Very nice premises in quiet neighbourhood. Good value considering quality. A bit off the tourist trap, you need a map to find the place. Will definately come again.
