“Hearty traditional German meal enough to keep you full ALL day.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013 via mobile

We stumbled across Gambinus searching for pork knuckles, schnitzel and dumplings and got exactly that and more. Food portions were huge, great friendly serivie and full of locals so knew it would be good. Our second night in Berlin we searched for another German food restaurant and ended up back at Gambrinus as couldn't find anything that would match the quality of their food nor their value for money. Highly recommend.

“Worth going if only for the atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

This restaurant was quite a way from where we were staying but it was worth the effort to go there. It is located at the end of a street that has some interesting activities at night – my children are too young to understand why there were so many ladies stood on the street.

It is very small inside which creates a cosy atmosphere. The two ladies who appear to run the restaurant were very busy but still seemed to deal with everything efficiently. Food and beer were very reasonably priced. Only slight complaint was that we were rushed a bit – the main course arrived as I finished my last mouthful of my starter. I assumed they wanted our table but this proved incorrect and I think you have to make an allowance for this given the fact there are only two people serving all the customers. Highly recommend for a good meal in a restaurant with a great atmosphere and ambience.

“Fantastic!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

Great little place which we stumbled upon by accident, the food is excellent but it's also a lovely place just to go for a beer. Just what you'd imagine a traditional German pub to be like - be warned it's quite small and it does get busy. There are only about 8 or so tables and probably only space for 8 at the bar. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area, it's also very close to the U-Bahn station at Oranienburger Tor. Staff are very friendly and they have a menu available in English, very reasonable priced. It's also open from 12-2am and they'll serve you food at pretty much anytime!
