“Xxexia is good for casual fine dining in Berlin”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

Our group had lunch at Xxenia prior to checking in at the Pullman hotel in which it is located. I must say the food we had was of superb quality and a fine first meal in Germany's capital city.

I think Xxenia can either be an excellent business meal restaurant as I saw plenty of suits there having a good talk or a casual fine dining place a bit removed from the busy city center. The location is actually pretty good, being opposite the zoo and on Budapesterstrasse which is not that busy throughout the day. The restaurant itself is unremarkable in size and decoration, and gives you more of a functional/efficient feel than a striking ambience.

The food we had was outstanding, with absolutely beautiful presentation. We had delicious soups and salads. Our fish and meat dishes were cooked to perfection. They used good-quality ingredients. The portions are not great, but then this is the kind of place you go for a nice meal and conversation rather than to be filled to the brim.

The service was fine and efficient enough. However, it filled up very quickly at lunch, so go early.

“German gourmet does exist!”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

We stayed at the Pullman, so we entered the restaurant by default.
Unexpectedly - this was the best dinner we had in Berlin.
It is styled as a modern Bistro-like place with clean lines and quiet atmosphere.
The service was efficient and polite with good knowledge about the wine list (which is very reasonably priced).
We had a menu degustastion which was brilliantly presented on a divided plate. It gave us a chance to sample 9 different dishes which were just excellent.
If you stay in one of the hotels around the Dam - give it a try!

“Tasty food well presented”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

Really good food, wonderful service and relatively good value. Good selection on the menu but the atmosphere in the restaurant is a little dead.

“Posh Nosh”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

We stayed at this hotel so were fortunate to have a 20% discount card. The waitress was very helpful, polite and spoke English. Food was very nice, as was the wine. Good quality meal all round.

“Killer of creditcards”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

The XXenia is a very nice restaurant with delicious food cooked to perfection, beautifully arranged and served by friendly and competent staff. After drinks - riesling and a 9 Euro Gin-Tonic, with admitedly good nuts, we had 2 steaks with salad a cool bottle of vin rosé (nice but ordinary) finished by 2 espresso and ended up paying some 170 Euros. We could not fault the meal, but pricewise it was just over my threshold..
