Having visited several times before on our last trip to Berlin we thought we would visit Eckstein again. The standard of food & service is just as good. It's relaxed and chilled, with a mix bag of interesting Cliental. Loved the artwork on the walls....More

We barely managed to find a table, as it seems to be crowded all the time. We had an enjoyable brunch, with delicious food and a variety of desserts. Service is quick and good. Recommend it when around!

This restaurant is located at Nollendorfplatz, near to many others, and serve southern German food. The service was very good and the food was tasty. Another nice thing is that since the weather was warm we could sit outside for our lunch, really great!

Friendly stuff, good food, specially the Schnitzel and with that: german beer. The Restaurant is located in the gay-district of Berlin: Nollendorfplatz, and Motzstrasse. It's nice to seat outside, if possible in sunny days, to have a view to the local food market: Winterfeldtmarkt.

In 1963, Schöneberg was the center of the political
west, inspiring John F. Kennedy to choose this area to
famously announce, "Ich bin ein Berliner." Times may
have changed, but modern-day Schöneberg still pays
tribute to its historical legacies. Once the richest
city outside of Berlin proper, the area's affluent
past is still visible in ornate housing facades dating
back to the Gründerzeit of the 19th century, while
