This is an incredible restaurant. From the moment you step in the door, you feel as it you have left the modern world behind. 1930s jazz standards are playing, the furniture matches the music and the service is exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble. Mr. and Mrs. Heising and their daughter run the show; they are knowledgeable about wine pairings... More

We had read the reviews on Tripadvisor so weren't altogether sure what to expect. Upon entering, the greeting seemed a little cold and, having been shown to our table, my first thoughts were that I hadn't seen anything like this since eating at my great aunt's house when I was a kid. As an aperitif a sherry was on the... More

Sometimes you visit a restaurant so different from everything else you have visited. Heising is such a restaurant. It is a concept not deliberately being designed as such. From entering to leaving it is a well-planned dinner experience from past times. The food is traditional French and cooked without fault. You get exactly what you expect, not more, not less....

What a wonderful experience! From the moment you enter the Heising it is like being invited for a great meal with family. The atmosphere is wonderful - it is like going back in time... It is a small family runned restaurant, 10 tables, and they all really put their heart in for giving you a great time. The kitchen is... More

A memorable evening in 'old world Berlin' not to be missed. A place like Heising You won't find anywhere else. Delicious food. A most charming couple with the help of their daughter will be taking care of You. It's only natural that just cash is accepted.

This French restaurant is incredible! Food was amazing and service incomparable. Their 4 course dinner is delicious. I had foie gras, escargots, and veal in a morel sauce. For desert the patissier's surprise desert. It is a perfect place for a romantic evening. Don't miss this restaurant!

This restaurant is so comfortable yet elegant. It follows a 3 or 4 course menu so not individual courses are available. I actually really enjoyed the 4 courses, and found the selections perfect for my tastes and expectations (fine French) dining). The kind attentive staff for a solo dinner was wonderful and especially appreciated. Every single dish I had was... More

It was a step back in time, the music and decor made me feel like I was in Berlin 1910 The pacing of the service was perfect and the food delicious. A very nice way to celebrate a birthday. The one hint I will provide is that they do not accept cards so bring cash.

Very quaint place where you have to ring a doorbell to get in but excellent atmosphere and great food. I recomend the frog legs for starters.

From a formal greeting at the door, to the gift of a long-stemmed rose as we departed, our experience at Heising was perfect. It really felt like I was back in my grandmother's dining room. The food was delicious and seasonal, served on hand-painted gilt-rimmed plates. The service was courtly but friendly, and our limited attempts at German were received... More

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
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.
