“A terrible experience!”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

we got good recommendations about this restaurant but from the moment we got there we felt disappointment.

Our waiter was really unpleasant from the moment he gave us the menus.
When we asked for some help with the choosing our main dish we got a really cold and not nice answer.
Then we asked for some tap water, and got an angry answer: "WE DON'T SAVE TAP WATER!!!".
The appetizers (2 soups) were good, but when our main dish arrived one of them was really not tasty.
When we tried to explain this fact to our waiter, we once again got a really cold and disgusting answer. A few minutes after we asked to speak with the manager (and got for an answer that he is the manager!), our waiter handed us the bill (while my friend was still eating his dish!).
I have to admit that we felt a little bit of fear, the waiter seemed really angry and not patience.

There are really great restaurants in Berlin and I recommend you to skip this one, for your own fun and safety.

“Not quite what I expected.”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

After reading some reviews here, I had quite high expectations. The portions was not very large. The meat (filet of pork) was so brittle it could have been used for kindling. The waiting time between courses was far to long, and there was a dog laying on the floor of the restaurant. What saved my day was the dessert. The vanilla ice cream was exelent.

“Excellent Berlin Cuisine”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Nice atmosphere with good and quick service. We had Jagerschnitzel and Berliner Teller which is a mixed grill with a quite big porsion consisting of pork fillet, meatballs, bratwurst with cabbage and fried potatoes, both plates were tasty. Had two Berliner beer and paid 32,60 €. Staff was so friendly, absolutely recommend it.

“Worth visiting more than once”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

We had 2 dinners and a lunch here and were never disappointed. Particularly liked the creamed soup with chanterelles, the jellied pork meat with remoulade served with pan fried potatoes and the marinated herring Berlin style. We were impressed with the service, food arrives quickly and the staff are chatty and friendly. Do try this worthwhile place.

“Excellent service, even better food.”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

I went to this restaurant twice during my short stop in the area and was not disappointed. Prices were reasonable, great beers on tap, and the food was a very good representation of German cuisine. The service was top notch and food arrived very quickly. Definitely worth a visit!
