About
Berlin Bar & Bistro is a hub of San Miguel culture where diversity is welcome and ideas flow. Where the music is cool, the drinks generous, and the food delicious. Our menu skews European but is adapted to exploit the freshest meat, fish, farm-raised fowl, and seasonal produce sourced from local village markets. Our rotating exhibitions showcase well-known artists like Peter Leventhal, Terra Mizwa, Jennifer Wolf, Cole Morgan, Gene Johnson, and George Krause--as well as new talent from Mexico and around the world. Our service is gracious, attentive, and easygoing, so even first-timers feel like regulars. Enjoy yourself with friends. Join us at Berlin.

We have been here twice in a week. Really great ambiance in the bar area. Take advantage of the happy hour until 7:00pm. I can recommend the bratwurst and the parmesan crusted chicken. Both excellent with great side dishes.
