Gerichtslaube is located in the pleasant back street of the renovated Nicholas quarter, and was the former medieval Berlin courthouse. Hard to say how much of it is original, but the current building has a very authentic feeling, so if it is largely renovated, then they have done a very good job.
Fortunately we had a fine weather evening so were able to sit outside in the pleasant leafy courtyard area. But took a look at the inside space, which is mainly the down stairs courtroom with its cross vault ceiling large arched glass windows, and solid wood furniture.
Decent traditional German food and beer menu with an emphasis on meat in the specialities section and can concur with others that you get an awful lot of pork for under €13 if you take the “Berlin style big pickled knuckle of pork” from the Berlin Specialities menu section.
We really enjoyed our meals and drinks here and it was a good first night introduction to the local cuisine when in Berlin. A couple of Bavarians on the next table to us who we got talking to were not so enamoured with their meals, but perhaps that was just the Munich v the rest of Germany thing… :-)
We would certainly have returned again during our visit if it wasn’t for the fact that I can’t eat that amount of pork twice in one weekend..
