JRD is full of style and serve classic german food with quality and with a great price. I loved the cozy environment, and to get to know more about the writer thought the stories in the walls. Really pleasant experience!

We choose this restaurant for lunch, one of the view restaurants that were open this early in the day. The place is small and quirky but the staff very nice. They have a view tables put together so chances are you have to sit with strangers. But the whole vibe of the place is easy going so you don't mind.... More

Ignore the other TripAdvisor reviews, this is the best tasting and best priced German restaurant in Berlin. They serve all the classics (sauerbraten and schnitzel are my favorites) in a really cozy atmosphere with occasional live piano. It is filled with locals too so you know you're in the right place. I would look at the menu in German posted... More

The food was very good and the staff were friendly. It was very well priced however the tables were far too close together which made the atmosphere a bit weird as you were practically sitting with the next table. Might come again, not if I want any privacy

I had the pork schnitzel with spatzle and my fiance had the beef wrapped over bacon. Both meals were phenomenal. The service was also good and they had English menus. Just a tip - the beef had onions inside as well but it didn't say so on the menu.

The restaurant has a nice location, with good staff and solid food choices. The menu is not to extensive but the food we had was good. I can recommend the homemade noodles with chase and ham that where really good (don't know the name in German). The decor is old stile and it has an cozy feel to the restaurant.... More

This is a treasure of Berlin. The Joseph Rothe Diele is a shrine to the author. You can purchase his books and eat wonderful local food. Many locals frequent the venue. The staff were fabulous and it was one of our most unique and wonderful experiences of the trip.

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighborhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theaters close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
