Pasternak has a really good daily deal for lunch. For under 10 euros, we had a delicious three-course meal. Excellent service and nice ambiance!

My second visit with a long break in between was a comforting reminder that quality prevails, even in Berlin. Relaxed atmosphere on a late spring Sunday morning watching the Prenzlberg crowd tend to their ritual stroll and brunch custom. Service was fast and funny with...More

This is a wonderful place to go for breakfast if you want something more interesting than bakery goods and coffee. They offer several mixed platters - mine included scrambled egg, smoked salmon, trout eggs wth blini, and other delicacies beautifully laid out. Coffee is good...More

Pasternak’s is an interesting blend of Russian and Jewish Ashkenazi food. We sat outside on a night with gentle weather – except for the rain (the awnings protected us well). The service was polite and efficient. The food was quite good. White asparagus was in...More

Pasternak was recommended by the hotel, and although about a 20 minute cab ride, well worth the effort. In an old home in a residential neighborhood the restaurant was full of character & charm. Wait staff were knowledgeable about the menu and were helpful with...More

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the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip
