The location is superb. We had diner with family. The food was good not great. People very nice. During summer must be very great to sit outside.

What a great place to eat. Not easy to find which is brilliant because it keeps the hoards away. We literally came by this hidden gem through shear luck. We saw a Pilsner sign and followed the narrow path down to the boat. A warm...welcome followed and we were quickly seated. Initially we were just after a cold drink. But when we saw the traditional German fayre being served we were sold on lunch. The herrings are to die for. Great quality food and very reasonable price. We sat up on deck under the sun shades but there is seating below deck if required.More

quiet and off the main road as it's on the canal. cosy little boat setting and excellent food and service. Staff spoke English and was very helpful and friendly. Made us feel welcome and was good value for money.

Not the easiest place to find - Capt Shillow is onboard a small coaster berthed close to the Charlottenburg Bridge and on the edge of the Tiergarten ( a five minute walk from the Tiergarten SBahn station). There are plenty of tables on deck we...enjoyed a couple of drinks and an enjoyable meal over a couple of hours in the evening sun. Service is relaxed - no hurry here - the food was freshly cooked - herring and pasta dishes were good - the beer and wine cold and wet. It was very popular with local couples enjoying the peace and quiet - there is an large inside dining room for wet days. I really enjoyed this spot - Cost about 50E for two mains and a couple of glasses each.More

Visited here whilst en route to the Tiergarten. Service was very friendly and helpful and food and drink reasonably priced. We both had a large Pilsner, then I ate the Schweinsteak (pork steaks with rosemary potatoes) and my wife had a jacket potato filled with...cream cheese and chives. Both meals were very enjoyable and set us up for the day, we paid 27 euros I think in total.More

Awful place. Negatives - the place stinks (maybe due to the channel/river, not sure) - the tables are dirty and sticky - the waiters are really unprofessional - wrong dish was brought - apparently the waiters/workers care more to chat with each other, than doing...their job - service/quality way overpriced ( i left over a sixty euros there and left hungry) Positives - none so far Would not recommend.More

We found this restaurant on a boat by chance when visiting Tiergarten. At first we thought it was empty and we were the only ones on there, but someone appeared shortly after! He was attentive and seemed to be the only person working, we got...a mixture of cheeses, fish, egg, meats, bread and various other bits and pieces and it was all amazing. The setting was gorgeous and there was blankets draped on all the chairs as it was a little cold. Our lack of German wasn't a problem.More

We spent a nice Sunday afternoon here. We didn´t want to stay that long, but the service was rather slow. To make up with that we were treated to one beer and a glass of wine, which was a nice move. The restaurat ship is...located on a rather quiet canal of the river Spree, so there isn´t as much water traffice to see as one would expect. Food was good, but there was only one vegetarian option (crepes with feta cheese), which was rather good, though.More

We have been visiting Captn Schillow a couple of years ago for brunch. This time we decided to go for dinner on a lovely sunny friday evening, at around 7.30pm. The restaurant i located on a ship, moored next to the Berlin Tiergarten park. Very...nicely located within the park with a bit of a view over the river/canal. There are quite a few of outdoor seats available, but as you can imagine, its was already pretty busy as the sun was shining. However even though we had no reservation, the waiter was very friendly and showed us rather hidden, nice spot on the deck. Service was excellent throughout the evening, we had a lot fun with the charming waiter. For our main course we ordered fish (Matjes) and pork steak. The meall arrived after about 10min and was excellent. I would have only expected some nice salad arrangement around it. Actually it was pretty much the same for both dishes. A bit strange. In any case this restaurant is highly recommended for a elaxing evening. Prices are ok and the menu offers quite a few nice meals and drinks.More
