Visited here after finishing a cycle tour at Alexanderplatz. We were very cold so started with hot drinks and cake-which were very tasty. We then moved onto cocktails having realised Happy Hour was about to start-making cocktails around the 5 Euro mark. We also had food-burgers etc in the main and the portions were large and the meals tasty. We... More

Came here for a drink after a look around the local area & ended up staying for a couple of hours as the drinks were lovely and the service good, despite it being a packed Friday evening. One mistake I made was going to the bar to order drinks, only to be informed that it was table-service, which was a... More

We spent here more or less three hours and we definitly stood up happily: the food was awesome, the beers were really good, the waiters are nice and the atmosphere is cozy. It's not super economic but I would definitely suggest it.

The staff at Alex are quite stressed out, which gives the place a manic and chaotic feeling, although most of the waiters are friendly enough when you flag them down (with one or two notable exceptions). The restaurant is extremely large with poor acoustics, which means it can get quite loud once more than half the tables are full, especially... More

This place is stunningly terrible. Never before have I waited 35 minutes just to be seated and the staff here just don't seem to care. Also if you love birds then you'll love this restaurant, the birds inside the restaurant are obnoxiously loud to the point where you can't even hear the person you came with. Did I mention it...

I went to Alex on Christmas Eve and had their special Heiligabendmenu. The food was great (duck cooked to perfection!) with rich flavours and good portion sizes. Three courses, but I didn't feel overfed afterwards. What was best, though, was the quality of the service. I can only imagine that the staff would rather be at home celebrating on Christmas...

Stopped in here for a few drinks. Staff were very friendly and attentive. There was a large group of us but there was no problems with accommodating us.

Came here for some drinks, but ended up having quite a few as well as a pulled pork flat bread pizza! The food is very good, and is something different rather than eating sausages all day! Would recommend the mojito!

After coming to the restaurant waiter quickly brought a menu (in German) and on demand exchanged menu on English version. We ordered drinks, which brought in about 10 minutes, but for ordering food we waited for almost an hour because the waiter have started us ignore. Finally, after an hour, we finally ordered with another waiter the meal that has... More

We too sat there for 1/2 hour even tho they were bringing food to the next table. In the end I waved vigorously at a woman behind the bar who told the waiter next to her, who told someone else and eventually they came over. Not exactly welcoming or interested we asked for a menu and ordered drinks. Half an... 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.
