“Overall ok..bit disappointing”
Reviewed February 23, 2014 via mobile

We ate here based on reviews and having walked past; it looked good. It was ok.. Not sure we'd say much more than that. It wasn't awful, the food was ok, just not as as good as some of our other choices. The service was terrible. Food came but no knives and forks and we eventually had to ask and then wait... Then we asked for the bill and no sign of anyone actually preparing it, despite staff being just sat around. Wax tempted to walk out and see if that spurred them to action! Needless to say we left no tip!

“Fantastic, simple food. The service could do with some improvements.”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

We ate at Knofi as we were shopping in the neighbourhood, we got a table outside without booking. It was very busy both inside and out (we took this as a good sign).

We were unsure if we were to be served outside, or if we were to order at the counter. So I went to the counter, only to be told someone would come out to serve us. After about 15 minutes of waiting people at a neighbouring table knocked on the window to get the attention of the waiters.

When we finally got served we ordered our drinks and food, we opted for a starter of quiche and a soup, and a main of beef gossies. My partner ordered the Hot Vitamin bomb tea... which was a fruit and ginger laden tea that was utterly delicious.

The atmosphere inside the restaurant was lovely, and the open air kitchen allows you to watch the food being prepared. We were sat outside, which provided great opportunities for people watching.

When our good arrived we were very impressed, and i'd say it was definitely worth the wait. The homemade quiche was spectacular, and my partner enjoyed his soup. The gossies came with the tastiest humous I have ever tried.

I would definitely recommend Knofi to anyone visiting Berlin and we will definitely be visiting again!

“Excellent! High quality ingredients!”
Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

After being in Berlin for less than 24 hours, we ate at this place 3 times! We ordered Sultan Teller, a dish packed with taskiiki olives, beans and homemade Mediterranean pastes. Wine was cheap and very full glasses! Great ambiance and an awesome place to people watch. Highly recommend!

“Crowded and cheery”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

This is actually a deli where you can eat, with a wide range of mediterranean dishes, warm and cold. Always full, justifiably, as the prices are very reasonable and the food is great. Will come here again.
