Description: A restaurant of two worlds, Spindler&Klatt is a relaxed riverside restaurant by day, with cocktails and smooth, soothing music in the background, and a vibrant hub for house, trance and techno DJs to get the people dancing throughout the night. One of Berlin's trendiest rendezvous, this is a popular place for people to taste fantastic fusion cuisine, flavoured with Asian and European influences. Dining here is truly a comfort, as you can enjoy your meal and drinks lying on futons as well as sitting at tables. In the summer, the 650 m² terrace offers direct access to the River Spree and the interior and exterior merge into one through the open roller shutters. Spindler&Klatt is also an incredibly versatile venue for all kinds of events. Its rich decor and innovative food will certainly leave a lasting impression on your guests.

“A great Berlin experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

Whatever you do, get a taxi to the restaurant - don't walk/get public transport, its just easier - and don't be put off that you can't see a entrance clearly. What looks like an industrial unit from the outside is actually the restaurant. Walk towards the river and bare left andit will become clear.

The concept of this restaurant is very interesting, it has a good vibe (music at dinner was very cool Berlin house) and the food is of a good standard with friendly attentive service. Book a table about 9pm and you will be able to stay at your table (if on the outer area) when it turns into a club at 11/11.30pm. I guess the music choice of the club depends on which night you go and which DJ's are on but don't let this put you off going. We didn't stay too long when it turned to a club as it became poptastic but each to their own. I've heard others have been when the music has been better than that.

It really is agreat experience, typical of Berlin. I imagine that it's great in the summer too when you can sit outside, we went in November so it was rather chilly for al fresco dining. I would reccomend it to couples or groups.

“Superb Food, Shame About The Club Night Afterwards!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

Twenty of us ate here for my friend's birthday last Saturday. We chose it because we could eat and then stay for the club afterwards which seemed convenient for such a large group. Overall I would recommend it based on the excellent food and the gorgeous atmosphere early on in the evening.

When we arrived, we were wowed by the vast dining room, with floor to ceiling white drapes, hundreds of candles and dozens of plasma screens displaying a giant, moving video mural. At the start of the night, the laid back soundtrack was spot on, and really made the perfect atmosphere for our dinner.

The food took a long time to come out. That's understandable as there were so many of us, but unfortunately, it meant we'd all had quite a lot to drink by the time we ate, and maybe didn't appreciate every mouthful as much as we should have done. Nevertheless, my main course, saddle of venison with mash and asparagus was sublime. The meat was cooked perfectly, the gravy was rich and aromatic (the mixed starter platter we opted to share between 6 was less memorable, but went some way towards soaking up the excess wine!).

What really let the evening down was the sudden change in the music as the tables were cleared away and the floor started to fill up with people who'd come for the club night. Within the space of a couple of tracks, it went from cool, alternative dance to painful, cheesy pop. We knew we had to leave when they played Will.I.Am and Britney Spears, and it's my firm belief that whoever was responsible for this tragic decline in the track selection should be sacked immediately!

That said, give the club a miss and go for the food alone, and you won't be disappointed.

“Typical Berlin”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

The setting - industrial warehouse by the river, long tables on concrete floor, bathrooms in containers, large screens on the wall with light patterns.
The food - High level Asian-European crossover
The drinks - Caipirinhas and other strong liquor drinks
The people - the young and the beautiful, upmarket business people and women in couples in the restaurant, a bit more rough when the dance floor opens

“Service slow, unkind, unpleasant. Had to share a table”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

We booked thre weeks in advance... but we had to share a table with four other people.
Waitresses were slow, unkind and unpleasant. They forgot our coffee, took our credit card out of our view for ten minutes (we had to retrieve it, because the waitress was doing "other things").
The place is not easy to find but is pleasant when in there, by the river.
By the way, the food was good, but expensive, and so were the wines: Spanish wines you can buy for 4 euros in a supermarket costed 24 euros. Not bad deal.
Don't go. Is the typical fashion place where waitressess treat you as if you had to be grateful for being in such a "fancy retaurant".
