“Good, fun place for a German experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

I went to this restaurant twice last time I was in Berlin.

This restaurant tends to be rather crowded, somewhat noisy, but it is a perfect place for a meal with a group of friends. Augustiner is more of a fun, casual venue than a place for a romantic dinner with a spouse.
This is the real thing: Very German, huge glasses of beer, honest no-frills food that will fill you up. Good selection of different dishes. Service is fast and very friendly. Reommended for a casual and fun, authentic German food experience.

“Sample a German bistro in the most elegant City Square”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

We were looking a typical German food eatery and were not disappointed ! I mixture of tourist and locals with some bar-action. Food was excellent, though menu was VERY limited - the huge knuckle of Pork portion is enough for two very hungry men and their dog.....simply delicious and crispy on the outside and juicy beneath the skin Service, by well seasoned locals, some of whom spoke English, was excellent. and the atmosphere was comfortably casual and tables well spaced out. There are more typical restaurants if you search the side streets of Wilmersdorf , but this is a fine eatery in Gendarmenmarkt .

“Good selection of German food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Recommended in the guidebook and was close to our hotel (the Angleterre). Good choice of meat dishes and reasonable price. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff. Wine was fine as well as the beer. Definitely worth a visit if you want solid, meaty, German dishes!

“Good German Grub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

The last time that we were in Berlin we stumbled across the Augustiner as we were wandering through the city. This time around we went looking for it as we couldn't remember the address and thankfully we eventually succeeded around lunchtime and went in for a beer. As we knew how popular the restaurant was, we booked a table for that evening and just as well we did as the place was "mobbed". The menu is typically German and the portions are amazing, and of course the beer is very good. The decor is what you would expect in a beer Keller with plenty of tables and plenty of friendly staff and no frills. My wife had Schweinebraten ( pork, potatoes and cabbage ) which she thought was superb, but I made the mistake of ordering the Currywurst without appreciating what it was ......... German sausage in a curry and tomato sauce mixture. Interesting to start with, but I should have went with my wife's choice instead. Anyway you live and learn and did I say that the beer was very good??

“Friendly and filling!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

We came across this busy, unpretentious German restaurant when looking for somewhere to eat in Gendarmenmarkt area. Fast and friendly service from our English waiter. A great place to sample traditional german cooking. We had beef goulash and mushroom goulash with herb dumplings. Both were delicious - so was the beer. Highly recommended.
