The experience was both fun and educational. The food was bland and very beige, absolutly not on the level the price indicated. Headwaiter who welcomed us (large man whith glasses) was VERY nasty! Roared at us that we should keep quiet because "your not alone here" when we laughed. Refused to let us have more than one menu even though... More

I arrived without knowing what is was, so my views are somewhat jaundiced. For someone who likes to know what they are eating, it is not a pleasant experience. However the food was not bad (if a little hard to actual find) and the waitresses were truly impressive. THe price seemed a little over the top for quality

This unique experience is one I will never forget.The idea of the menu in riddle whereby you select an overall menu, be it Poultry, Fish or Surprise ext., then compare your pallet to the true menu adds another wonderful dimension to this restaurant. The staff were very friendly, multi-lingual and they treat you really well. It has superb food with... More

This restaurant provides a really humbling and powerful experience due to the fact that you do not see anything while eating! When you arrive you are given the menu which is fixed with 6 choices of 3 courses. You pick from different types of dishes if you can guess by the poem and metaphor in the menu prior to going...

A very different experience. Well suited for those who are looking for odd things to do. This is not a place you will go to because of the food, you will go here because you would like to challenge yourself and the relationship you have with the people who accompany you. The restaurant is quite large, it seats 80 people... More

Lets be honest, the food is nice, it is tasty and it is good, but it is nothing special. BUT the arrangement makes this a really nice thing to do. Bring your friends and family and let them experience it.

Renee explained the table layout in complete darkness and... More

Terrible food, very expensive, don't go there. It's a waist of money.. You are paying for a Michelin restaurant, but the food is better at a highway truck stop ... My girlfriend were scared when It took us 15 minutes to come in contact with our waiter, because I really needed to go too the bathroom.. We tried calling for... 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.
