We booked this restaurant as a way to visit the Reichstag as when I tried to book to visit the dome it was all booked up. You need to book in advance for security reasons and forward your dates of birth, I did everything over email within 20 minutes, very efficient and helpful. When we arrived there was the usual...

Quite a treat for lunch but the food was excellent and the service impeccable. Lovely bright room with great views you must book ahead and have cleared security to enter.

Pre-book your meal and you will be fast-tracked to the top of the Reichstag Building for an amazing experience. Attentive waiters with only a minor delay in the starter arriving. Food was impeccably presented. The view of Berlin from the gallery of the restaurant is beautiful. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

This is a one of a kind experience. You must make reservations for two reasons: (1) Security clearance (Women - you have to give your date of birth) and (2) this place is so popular it is booked solid, so don't expect to walk up or even call in the day before. Plan for this experience. A reservation entitles you... More

Its an easy and lovely walk from the main Berlin Train Station across the river to the Reichstag and its lovely dome. At the bottom of the dome and inside the Reichstag you will find Kaefer, an elegant, lovely restaurant that overlooks Berlin. We were taken there with friends who called for reservations well in advance. You are given multiple... More

After doing a bit of research, we decided that the easiest way to visit the Reichstag would be to make a lunch reservation at the adjacent restaurant and do the tour after eating. This was a great plan as it was easy to make the reservation in advance via email and it didn't take long at all to go through... More

We could not find any available times for the Reichstag so we decided to book lunch in the Käfer instead which also gives access to the Reichtag building - and you can skip the waiting time. Food was good and portions big, but what you mainly pay for is the location and the view. Still I strongly recommend that you... More

First, let me say that the meal was excellent. Lamb and chicken main courses very good. Service excellent. Of course the location and the view makes it a 5. If first time or only time to Berlin, recommend to tie into tour of the Reichstag.

The menu is nothing overly exciting, but you do get good food. High quality ingredients and lots of it. It was over priced, but you are paying for the location more than anything. This is a great way to jump the reservations list for the tour of the dome.

Very modern restaurant alongside the glass dome of the Bundestag. Reservations must be booked in advance as guests have to give all names and dates of birth for security purposes (and there is a lot of security). It has a large outdoor seating area, perfect for a summers days. The menu is not large but the food is very good... 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.
