We had dinner here one evening during our first visit to Berlin. The restaurant itself looks nice. It was not overly busy the evening we were in but it took too long for our drinks and then even longer for our food to arrive. The waiters were friendly enough but there was no apology for our wait. Our dirty plates... More

We arrived to the breakfast buffet and got a table - actually we found two tables and set them together, which the server was NOT happy about! The food was uninteresting and bland, when we wanted to pay the server got irritated at us for wanting a receipt... Not a place I will visit again, as Berlin has SOOO many... More

At night the restaurant has the most beautiful honey-gold glow emanating onto the cool and breezy patio seating area. We got to our hotel late due to a plane delay and we're delighted to find this place open till 3 AM. We had a luxuriant meal from 10:15-11:30, being served by the nicest waiter ever who helped my husband with... More

One of the best breakfast buffets I've ever had! Not sure if it's a good thing I came across this place on my 2nd day in Berlin or not, because after this I didn't want to go anywhere else for breakfast (and didn't). Here you can have a breakfast buffet for 7.90EUR with complimentary orange juice. Cereals, yogurts, eggs (scrambled,... More

So bad service. We where four people who went for lunch. Two of us got our drinks served, and the others got theirs after the food had been served. The burger I got was of poor quality, the worst I have ever eaten. The waiter started taking out the plates before everyone was done. Not recommendable.

Nice choice of burgers (but they have more selections). Nice location on the Alexanderplatz. Service is a bit slow and not all the waiters speak English but, all in all, good quality/price rate. A place to consider if you are weary from walking around Berlin and are close by.

We stopped off here for lunch after visiting the tv tower. The atmosphere was lovely and our waiter was very helpful and hatted to us about where to go in Berlin later on. He also recommended a good beer! The curry wurst was excellent!

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.
