Welcome for dinner in Berlin anno 1915! The Heising family, represented by members from several generations, welcomes you into their home in style, and serves the most wonderful food. Attention to detail is the overriding theme during our visit, and is reflected in the many exquisite and very tasteful dishes - just wait for the homemade chocolate at the end... More

I don't know what was more enchanting -- the atmosphere and the owners or the food. The reviews are correct. You ring the bell and an older stately gentleman in a dark suit ushers you win and takes your coats. The dining room is a step back in time. Very elegant with old European charm. The set price is jaw... More

What an unexpected treat this was. We saw the reviews and saw it was round the corner from our hotel so booked a table for my husbands birthday. It is a small French salon with a great menu and amazing ambience. The owners were so attentive and made it a very special evening. Highly recommended!

Practicalities first, do book and do have cash ( although there is an ATM near by). Do not come too early as there is no where to wait in side. An elegant dining room from days go back, best china plates, wooden tables and heavy pink roses. Run by the Heisling family; Herr Heisling welcomes and takes the coats (... More

What a wonderful restaurant and what an experience. You step back in time, led to the dining room by the immaculate Herr Heising who then leaves you in the care of his wife and daughter. This is formal dining with a strict etiquette ( I regret not wearing jacket and tie) that demands and deserves respect. As for the food... More

This is a restaurant you must visit. Remember to book a table. The atmosphere and staff (owners) is unique and must be experienced. The food was really good. Remember cash, they don't take card. Old style and atmosphere!

A group of friends went to the restaurant after walking all day long. The atmosphere is like an old Berlin aristocratic dinning room. The service and food were superb. Wine selection and deserts extraordinary. Old style cooking with chefs touch of elegance. Only drawback no credit cards accepted. Old school management.

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....

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.
