This restaurant serves solid French/German food. They're especially good at cooking pork dishes, like the pork knuckle, and the wiener schnitzel. A solid dinner choice if you find yourself in the neighborhood.

Having lived in Prenzlauerberg for a while, I came here a few times. Never got disappointed! Good quality, nice service, their stew is fabulous and desserts are good too. A little more pricey than the average in Berlin but still OK.

I think we were expecting a little more from the food after all the brilliant reviews. To be honest we felt that the food was only average, sorry.

We sat in the very cosy out door seating and eat the trout, rump steak and suckling pig. Everything were amazing and the staff were friendly. I would really like to visit again when I come back to Berlin!

We stopped there because it was convenient... Returned because it was superior. Nice wine selection compliments interesting and delicious cuisine served by friendly and accommodating staff. Particularly liked the chacoute. The duck liver pâté is a broulé of carmelized onions. Reasonably priced.

Average Bistro with a limited menu. Service a little slow. Visited on a Monday night and not very busy yet service was slow.

Friendly, reliable bistro in fashionable Prenzlauerberg. Good place for a typical, German supper. If you like Cremant d'alsace as an aperitif, followed by asparagus and schnitzel, this is for you!

Visit Prenzlauer berg on a bi-monthly basis with work and always walked past. On the occasion my partner joined me we decided to drop in for supper. Excellent hospitality, relatively nice surroundings, a fairly good menu with German classics. I've been back since and whether for a beer or a meal it fails to disappoint

We went to have a dinner with a group of 8 colleagues and had booked a table in beforehand. We had another appointment on the same evening and so we needed to leave at a certain time. When I reserved the table, I informed that we are planning to have a relaxed 3 course meal, with an aperitif to start... More

We've been to this restaurant each time we visit Berlin. It's especially lovely in the summer when you can sit outside. We love their tartes flambees.

Staying in Prenzlauer Berg

Neighborhood Profile
Prenzlauer Berg
No Berlin neighborhood has undergone a greater change than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays, thousands turn the park next to remnants of the wall into a playground for street artists, musicians, and flea market shoppers. This attracts young urban families who enjoy the balance of big city life and small-town comfort. Meanwhile, trendy, young, upper-class visitors from all over the world are attracted to the local high-end shops, cafés, and sophisticated bars and restaurants. The merits of this transformation are a favorite topic of debate around the city, but it makes for some of the best people-watching Berlin has to offer.
