Curtious staff who speak English. I had the scallops to start my husband had oysters!!! Both delicious. Then I had the local delicacy of veal meat balls and he had steak. Those meatballs were amaze balls! Couldn't resist a dessert, crime brûlée and a cafe gourmand, again just to die for. The best food I've eaten in ages. Wine was... More

OK - let's talk about the good stuff first. This restaurant in Charlottenburg serves the most AMAZING dishes - pink and perfect lamb, mouth watering fish, exquisite vegetables, fabulous smoked salmon starter. Not only that, but the wine list is really good - in other words whatever you pay, the quality is really good. It's all fialry pricey, but the... More

We were happy to get a table (the last) when we "popped-in" A cozy place from good old times. Great interior, fine service. Huge selection of fine wines, small selection of great food. The price is a bit high – but in proportion with other fine-cuisine places in Berlin.

Cool Place to enjoy a French dinner. I tried a Red snapper and my boyfriend The duck, both tasty. It is not cheap, each main dish was about 20 euros. We tried also a dessert; simply deliciuos. If you are around it is a Nice choice for The dinner.

Had a business dinner for 12. Three of us had the beef which first came out as a tiny cut barely 75g of beef (actually we are fairly sure they simply cut our steak into three portions) and was tough as old leather - completely inedible. We sent it back and they offered a new steak - this time a... More

Arrived rather late in the evening, directly from the airport, so the restaurant was more empty than full. The late arrival also meant that the normally short menu was even shorter but there were some extra selections that looked good, and they were! Also had a very nice German Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir). Good service, nice setting and reasonable prices. A... More

Went here with some great friends in August, the food was rather good, but I felt it was quite expensive for what it was, though the Euro to Pound exchange rate at the time didn't help any. The service was very attentive and the whole evening was very enjoyable.

Try Diekmann for a special meal. The food is upscale German, but moderately priced. We had the asparagus soup, vegetable crepes, and the cod dish - all great. Fine wine list. Waiters were friendly and attentive.

Description
Restaurant Diekmann is located a few minutes walk from the big shopping street Kurfurstendamm.
Therefore it is right in the center of West Berlin although it is hidden in a small and quiet street.
Once you have discovered what awaits you behind the ivy-covered
entrance, you will be unable to resist its charm.
The atmosphere inside is distinctly influenced by furniture from 1870; giving a hint of the simplicity of the general store it used to be before the Diekmann became a restaurant – step by step.
It all began in 1982 when the founder started to sell plain lentils and rice. Quickly it became a bistro and then it first opened as a restaurant in 1985.
Gourmets and connoisseurs appreciate the classy but privat atmosphere and details like the menu written by hand that gives the Diekmann its special touch.
The German and French cuisine serves as the basis, special focus is given to regional products. The oysters are coming straight away from Bretagne, France, where we know the oystercatcher himself.
Another focus is given to wines. There are vineyards on the menu which are well known but also some smaller ones, to whom we have enjoyed a good relationship for many years.
Since 30 years, Patrice Voisin is the restaurant manager and some kind of soul of the house.
From February 2015, Sebastian Schmidt is at the stove and guests find their culinary instincts indulged at the highest level. He was head chef at several other places in and near Berlin and we are happy he found his way here to Diekmann.

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
Charlottenburg
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighborhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theaters close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
