“Great view, good food, slow service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

We reserved a table for 5 persons on Saturday night at 9:30pm. The overall experience was excellent: the place looks nice, the view over Berlin is just amazing, everything we ordered tasted very nice. However the time we had to wait in order to receive the starter was around 1 hour. Same thing for the main course. Apparently there is an issue in the kitchen, because the waitress was nice and professional.
The good thing with this restaurant is that once you are finished, you just go up the stairs and can enjoy a drink overlooking Berlin by night. There was little amount of people and the music was more selected to chill out than to dance. Rooms are available at the back for smokers.

“Excellent experience overall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

Went to this restaurant after looking at a few options of restaurants in Berlin with a view. My husband also invited two work colleagues to join us for dinner. The restaurant is sort of hidden from the main street but was not too hard to find. Staff on the ground floor found our names easily and took our coats. Then we were whisked up to the top in the glass elevator which was very impressive.

Overall the service was great and the food exceptional. The dishes that were tried at our table included Goose, Guinea fowl and lamb. All were great. Very nice experience, nice view and great food at not too bad a price. Would definitely recommend it.

“Hugely overpriced New Year!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

Booked for New Year at 220 euro per head. I have never been so disappointed. Dumped upstairs in what I assume is the bar on a normal night with no atmosphere and stuck on the throughfare to the toilet. Downstairs had all the party feel including table decs and party accessories to see in the New Year. Upstairs there were 2 sad looking tinsel decs and that was it. A very very poor show. The reject floor bit still at. Huge cost. Food was ok certainly not worth the money paid. Wine horrible clearly bought in on the cheap for the evening. The views were good but on our side all the windows steamed up so come midnight the view over the city was not good at all. I would not recommend and I'm very sure you could find a much better atmosphere and quality o food for half the price elsewhere.
