“Modern Mexican!”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

We felt silly heading to a Mexican restaurant in Berlin but we weren't disappointed! Having seen how busy the place was the night before on our way to dinner in Hackescher Markt, we knew we had to try Tipica. On arrival we were greeted and seated with drinks almost arriving immediately. The food selection and variety on menu options really caters to all types; light, heavy, mild, hot, tapas or individual meals. We had an amazing Special salad served in a tortilla and the enchiladas. The presentation and taste was out of this world - very modern (nicer than the little cantinas we get at home). Priced well considering the area. Try the cocktails!

“Horrible service”
Reviewed May 6, 2012 via mobile

Like many restraunts in Berlin, they have one server for 20+ tables. Food was ok but we all ordered tacos and they brought six tiny tortillas for three people. We ate them all in the first five minutes and never got them refilled (which they said they would). Are the rest of our taco contents without tortillas. Slooooooow staff and clueless.

“Unexpected gem”

Food was excellent and reasonably priced. Food was prepared fresh and was reflected in the quality. I asked to have food packed for take out which was done with no problem

“Great food but understaffed”
Reviewed April 13, 2012 via mobile

The food at Tpica is excellent and a refreshing change from German food. Everything our party tried was delicious from the freshly made guacamole to the build your own taco choices to the enchiladas. We felt badly for the one server covering the entire restaurant alone. She was gracious and efficient but more staff would be helpful.
I would return to Tipica for another meal. Just steps from Hackescher Markt and a nice change from the chains and more commercialized options. English menu available.

“Nice place”
Reviewed March 13, 2012

We found Tipica s reviews on net and decided to try :) Definitely worth. Nice, modern place to have lunch or dinner. Had soups and taco and everything was really delicious and served in a nice modern way. We visited Tipica on Friday evening but was kinda empty. The waiter is such a sweetheart :)) Strongly recommended!!!
