This place wasn't far from the Best Western berlin mitte where we were staying for a long weekend. It's a very busy place with many people drinking at the bar; we didn't have to wait long for a table but we did share it with another couple. Waitress was polite and nice and recommended a dish. Food came out fairly... More

A very special eatery . Moved from Bonn after Parliament came back to Berlin . It is full of photos of famous politicians and high political events and historical moments . The atmosphere is noisy and lively in the best possible way. Berliners love it and its always full. The food is best described as hearty and most are traditional... More

We were looking for a local restaurant in the Mitte area and this looked authentic and fun. We were seated at a communal table which I enjoy when traveling, though you could sit alone if you preferred.The food was generous and authentic, the place was filled with interesting people and the walls are covered with political art. A very fun... More

This place is VERY busy- not a good place for any kind of conversation. The menu gives you an overview of what the name means and the history of the place. Limited menu but I did love the flammkuchen (called a tart but a cross between a super thin pizza and baklava type crust with tasty toppings).

a lot of tourists [of course! where in the middle of berlin are none?!] the food is very good and the atmosphere like in a beergarden or beer tent drink the little glasses of beer [you will always have a fresh beer; it doesn't get stale like in huge mugs] and try the 'flammkuchen', a kind of thin pizza: lecker!!

This is a very busy pub doing a roaring trade in 'Koelsch' (type of beer typical for Cologne .. on the Rhine, some 500 kms away). The name 'Standige Vertretung' leans on West Germany's 'embassy' in East Germany. Well. West Germany did not recognize the DDR as a state, hence it could not have an embassy, but only a ..... More

This place may be part of a chain, it may be steeped in Trabant style nostalgia, it means eating at long tables a little hemmed in and it is crowded, however the food is fantastic. Who can fault their marinated steak in a pumpernickel sauce and mash and apple? Or their calves liver with potato onions and apple. Also the... More

a couple of friends went for a beer and was a hassle to get a beer. The service was slow as well. Anyways try it, maybe you have more luck with your waiter.

My wife and I visited this bar for some dinner and beer. We were certainly not disappointed when we arrived as it was absolutely buzzing, full of friendly people having a great evening. The food was traditional and tasty, I had beer from Cologne that I hadn't had since being in Cologne a while ago and the pork knuckle rocked.... More

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
