Sat down and was offered an English menu nearly straight away which was the best service we received all night, waited about 20 minutes for our drinks when they came one was missing, waited another 20 minutes for someone to take our order. All in all the meal lasted about an hour and a half due to waiting for the... More

This place looked great, sophisticated and welcoming. For anyone that is fussy and wants British food they do lovely burgers / steaks / pastas as well as German foods such as currywurst. When we walked in, we were confused as to whether we sit down or wait.. we were seen standing around confused but no one helped us or came... More

My friend and I chanced upon this restaurant while searching for caffeine and carbs after hitting the Christmas markets the night before. Friendly waiters (who all speak English!), all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet with lots of choice from your standard cereals/breads/continental meats and cheeses to the more local offerings like Bratkartoffeln (delicious potato, onion & pepper hash) pickled cucumber, beetroot salad and...

The breakfast at Alex (near Alexanderplatz) is one of the best I've ever had. They serve a massive breakfast buffet for only 9 euro per person (drinks not included though) Freshly baked bread, multiple kinds of yoghurts and puddings, many warm dishes (like sausages, 'bouletten' and scrambled eggs) salads, many bread toppings (including tartar of salmon) and sweet pastries makes...

We went here for the second night in a row intending to eat but within 5 minutes of sitting down one of us had had our bag stolen. Please be really careful as We had clearly been targeted and the bag was right by the owners foot. And whilst the staff were wonderful and clearly very concerned, the management did... More

Visited Alex with some friends for dinner. When we arrived we were sitting for almost 10 minutes with German menus. My friend went to the bar to ask if they had an English menu and was told to sit down in a very rude manner and to wait until they were ready. Shortly after our waiter came and 'threw' the... More

Unless you got a spare 4 hours you don't mind wasting, I wouldn't bother. Table still not cleared after 20 minutes.

On arrival we were just at our table for 10 minutes before anybody came over so my boyfriend went to the bar to politely ask how long the wait was as we were in a bit of a hurry to be spoken to very rudely by staff and asked to go back to the table for table service. We then... More

We were a group of four sitting outside, and although we were definitely seen on a number of occasions by a number of employees, some of whom were standing idly next to the indoor counter, we were not served for almost 30 minutes. The indoor area was relatively busy but the outdoor area was mostly empty. Not sure how management... More

We had a great dinner, ask for schnitzel with mushroom, very delicious. The wine (Alex) was good and we had a good surprise in the end: the bill was super ok, not expensive al all, even... More

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
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.
