We wanted a quiet dinner with German cuisine. Gugelhof hit the spot perfectly. The food was excellent and the service was friendly, but slow. This is a place to dine well but not hurriedly and would be suitable for a celebration.

We came here for dinner during the week of October 5th 2016. The onion soup was flavorful. We also had the Irish Ox cheeks and the Black Angus Rumsteak which we also recommend. The Ox cheeks came with very fresh vegetables and the mushrooms of the Rumsteak were a delight. I wish the cheese of the Raclette was more flavorful... More

I do appreciate this restaurant! Normally I come here to eat the most famous tarte flambee from Berlin. The place is open until 10 pm. So, come early and enjoy!!!

Gugelhof is a very nice restaurant serving traditional Alsatian cuisine. All course were done nicely, not superbly. I liked my "goat cheese tart" (more like a pizza); and slow roasted pork knuckle. Dining al fresco in Prenzlauer Berg (Old East Germany) makes it very special.

Ate outside under the beautiful lights. The activity in the plaza made for good dinner sightseeing. I had the fried perch with artichoke tomato sauce and black noodles. Truly a wonderful meal.

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!

Thank Sanna K

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 The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes.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.
