Stumbled across this place as the restaurant a few doors down was closed for summer holidays. Really chilled - very old skool in the nicest way. Food was simple, homely and tasty! Staff were great and welcoming, and prices were very reasonable - what more can you ask for? 😁

It might be small but the portions are big! The food was great, the beer was cold and the people there were so lovely!

We always like to eat the cuisine of where we are staying and discovered this pub on the internet. Their menu has the dishes which we love and we tried Bauernfrühstück, Wiener Schnitzel and Brathering, all of which were delicious. They have a lovely German red wine and draught Schwarzbier, reminiscent of Köstritzer. The decor of the place must have... More

Brilliant traditional German fare in a cosy and often packed corner-pub. Recommend arriving early. Beers on tap and wurst and schnitzels available.

Keen to try some local German cuisine, we visited Metzer Eck for some Currywurst and German beer. Both the food and beer on offer tasted decent and I enjoyed dinning in a more traditional German setting.

About the food : this is traditional German food, easy, simple and delicious. Restaurant itself is a kind of small, wood everywhere, good ambiance. Nothing exceptionnal but a very good place to...

I read that the Metzer Eck is over 100 years old and I don't think it will have changed all that much in that time. We all loved it. Full of character and just a hint of the "Berliner Schnauze", brilliant. There were six of us, but a table was found and the beers never tasted better. Excellent service behind... More

Loved the food and atmosphere at this place. What we'd call a corner bar or dive bar. The wiener schnitzel was great. It's an old place that looks like it hasn't changed much in decades. But, good prices and great beer. They have my favorite Czech beer, Krusovice. It was down the street from our hotel and we went both... More

Staying in Prenzlauer Berg

Neighborhood Profile
Prenzlauer Berg
No Berlin neighborhood has undergone a greater change than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays, thousands turn the park next to remnants of the wall into a playground for street artists, musicians, and flea market shoppers. This attracts young urban families who enjoy the balance of big city life and small-town comfort. Meanwhile, trendy, young, upper-class visitors from all over the world are attracted to the local high-end shops, cafés, and sophisticated bars and restaurants. The merits of this transformation are a favorite topic of debate around the city, but it makes for some of the best people-watching Berlin has to offer.
