I was there with my husband on my birthday. The deco on the table was prepared for the occasion. We ordered a three course menu with the variety of game meat, appetizers and dessert. The meals complemented each other. We will definitely visit again.

I am no expert of African tastes nor have I visited the continent, but Massai offered a teaser to what I assumed Africa could offer. A selection of exotic meats for the daring, of which we recommend crocodile, but of course there's something for the...More

Massai has a very authentic atmosphere with interior decoration, ambient music, service staff and dishes. You can try different variations of African food including from crocodile meat to ostrich. Starters prepared with legumes are also nice to try.

Prenzlauer Berg
No Berlin neighborhood has undergone a greater change

that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in
the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip
crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were
once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall,
there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have
been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays,
