We are both lawyers, so this place sounded attractive! Gerichtslaube essentially means the courthouse annex or patio. The building looks and feels very medieval. The food and the beer were classic German! This was a good German-style pub. The service was a bit slow, but very accommodating. At the end of our night, we asked them to call us a... More

The area is great, the outside garden (where we ate) was also amazing. The staff was very kind as well. Regardless of the above, we had to wait quite long. And when the food came, it was a bit of a dissapointment. It tasted uninspiring. More of a touristtrap than a great place to eat.

In a cold January it was very cosy inside. Good menu and service. Was there again in June and the tables were set up outside. It's in a quiet and pleasant shaded location with plenty of seating. We all enjoyed our typical traditional meals of pork, sauerkraut and potatoes. Service was prompt and very friendly.

Had a great German dinner! The building and the outside are very nice. At the Mitte neighborhood. It is a bit expensive.. Had a great meal for 2 (we shared dessert) for 49.6 euro.

We really wanted a traditional German meal in a proper German tavern and we were not disappointed at all. The food served was exceptional and our waitress coped with 15 of us without any problem whatsoever. I suggest you read about the history of the building after you have eaten!

Beer garten atmosphere. Very good service with excellent English skills. Best part of the meal was a salad with a mustard seed dressing. Fried foods are greasy. The potatoes are very bland. The temperanillo by the glass was outstanding. Many better choices in the area.

Generally bad service (as in many places in Berlin). Very slow, and non-intuitive even for the simple things. Pretty expensive for the quality offered and not a very big variety. Nevertheless the area is nice.

Excellent beer (including black beer) and wine in friendly setting in the oldest part of Berlin. Full of tourists eating happily. Very efficient service. The third time we visited, the waitress knew exactly what we wanted. Not often one finds that in a place hundreds of miles from home!

Quiet outdoor dining in the Nikolai Quarter! Lovely experience - delicious German food, beer garden setting, attentive service, good beer! We had the seasonal specialty, asparagus with Hollandaise sauce, and classic German schnitzel. Our meal was exceptional.

This restaurant really disappointed us and this is the first time I'm giving a score of 1. Although the terrace was filled and the rating was overall good, this was the worst place we ate. We are not unfamiliar with German cooking so we can easily compare. I went for a traditional schnitzel with asparagus. The schnitzel was good but... 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.
