I've been to Lokal 3 times over the past 18 months and each time it has been fantastic. Located in a trendy area in Northern Mitte, it has a cool neighborhood spot vibe and feels really comfortable with great soft lighting at night. The food feels seasonal, featuring fresh ingredients, and it's reasonably priced for the quality. The wine list... More

Menu changes daily, focus on local ingredients. Make reservations, it fills up! I was alone and able to get a spot at the bar without a reservation. Ask your server for recommendations. I was very pleased with everything I had (venison to start, veggie roll for entree) and lovely glasses of wine. Trendy place in a cool neighborhood.

We might have walked past this place and never even understood that it's a restaurant if we hadn't read about it on Tripadvisor, it's that inconspicuous and tucked away. But boy is this a hot spot! We tried to eat here twice, the first night we had not made a reservation and they just couldn't accommodate us. Two days later... More

On the recommendation of our apartment owner we headed down the street to Lokal - walked in with no booking and were fortunate to get a seat up at the bar. It is a very popular spot and bookings to be sure of a table are clearly essential. The menu changes every day, food is fresh, innovative and delicious. Great... More

The restaurant was buzzing when we arrived at 8.30, which gave it a great atmosphere. The staff were lovely, energetic and very efficient. The food was mixed for us, but we are not experts on German food. We both had excellent starters, a delicious pumpkin soup and a rye risotto with lots of fresh vegetables piled on top. The mains...

After a long walk around the centre we strolled up to Lokal at around 5.40 with no reservation and were found a table immediately with a 1.5 hour limit - no problem. The welcome was warm and efficient. The atmosphere pleasant with thick reclaimed wood tables and nice lighting. A short menu long on meats and rustic vegetables, but very... More

We had a wonderful meal at Lokal in late September. We assumed it wouldn't be hard to get into because it was a Tuesday night, but it was jammed. We sat at the bar. I would not recommend sitting outside-too close to the street and too much cigarette smoke. The food was great and the people who worked there were... More

Nice people, nice location (...somehow a little bit hidden) and an absolutely great food experience this is the "Lokal"! If you want to try it don't forget to book or you will have no chance to get in...

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.
