“Terrible food, nice service and ambiance...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

The food is horrible, any average quality cafeteria in German Universities can cook better than this with a quarter of the price they charge.

Maybe they don't care about having "regular or returning" customers, only a place for tourists. Just order beer and tell the Chef to learn German kitchen again from his "Oma".

“Dreadful food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

What a shame that the food was so bad, because this had all the makings of an authentic German night out. The staff were lovely and the setting underneath railway arches in a garden was great. We went for an evening meal. All the food offered was typically Germanic, but when you have to say 'at least the boiled potatoes were tasty' then you know not to order dessert. Huge portions, oversalted oxo style gravy on smoked ham, thick beer battered camembert...yuk.

“Just for a bear”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013 via mobile

Place is huge and not too cosy.
Seems to be a good place for a bear especially that they have some local brends and home bear.
Food is not worth a try. My travelmate tried a salad ( ham cheese and vegetable ) that was one of the worst dishes I have ever seen ( I didnt even try) made of cheap mortadela lots of onion and old cheese. No vegies no dressing - culinary disaster.

“Really nice and simple”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

It is actually difficult to find good Berliner food in Berlin. This place won't disappoint you with their own brewed beer and good old fashioned meat and vegetables. And not expensive either with two beers, a huge stuffed cabbage roll and roast pork plate with fried potatoes and spinach coming to only €26. Go and eat there!

“If you like to wait . . .”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

Average food, nothing special. Very slow service and seemingly poorly organized kitchen. People who came in long after we did ate almost immediately. Bill was ?47 of which ?12 was for plain old water! Perhaps a 3 vote is too kind.
