If you like your exceptional dining behind a closed steel door, graffiti wall under a railway bridge, this is for you. If you just like great food, interesting menu, great cocktails and super cool wait staff who know what they're talking about, then this is for you too. It seems you'll have to book as the doorman will not let... More

Very cool find. Restaurant came highly recommended by some friends. Nondescript door with graffiti under the bridge. No obvious sign. Once you press the buzzer and are permitted inside their is an outstanding bar with excellent bartenders and a fantastic cool vibe. Restaurant is in a room behind the bar with excellent food and service. A+ experience and well worth... More

Hard to find this restaurant, but once you're in, it is quite an experience. The ceviche and sashimi were amazing.. Drinks were great. The rest of the dishes were uneven in quality. All in all an enjoyable meal

This place is really really awesome. The hidden entrance, the kinda spooky attitude from the host, the interior design and the musik was all together one of the best experiences I've had in a restaurant in Berlin! I won't say to much, cuz' I was surprised when I arrived and it was a big part of the experience. Just know... More

I idly suggested this place to a friend on our last night in Berlin after googling articles about random restaurants. The entrance is easy to find once you know it's not easy to find. It's a steel door covered in graffiti at the address you find on Google. We went on a Wednesday night to the restaurant. You push the... More

A very nice place! It was difficult to find the entrance but when coming in we were pleasantly surprised. Very cool atmosphere and style. The food was very good but don't go there for dinner when you're very hungry, it isn't very much what you get. :)

It is a great secret place which not everyone knows. No advertising or name on the outside of the restaurant. Just a dark door with a bell. Once ringing, the most funniest guy will open you and firstly looking strange. But once you know him, he is just great. He runs the whole place I believe. You will need to... More

What an outstanding restaurant / bar / club... jeeze, it had everything going on. The staff is delightful and great fun. It is very welcoming and the food is top notch. Do not expect a run-of-the-mill meal... that's not on the menu. Some of it will not be to your taste, but it is wonderful to try something different and... More

The restaurant is located in a room behind the bar. The food is good. But what I really like is the bar area to have a late night drink before heading to the clubs.

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.
