Description: In the historic revolving restaurant, Sphere, towering 207m above the city, you can experience Germany's highest culinary tour. Indulge yourself with refined Berlin cuisine from morning till night. So take a seat on the comfortable burgundy chairs and let l yourself be spoiled by the special ambience. The mixture of modern design and retro chic, a "starry sky" on the ceiling as a musical accompaniment on the piano creates a very special flair. The rotating platform also includes an unforgettable 360 ° city tour. Nowhere else can you get an overview of the whole of Berlin!

Of course you pay for the views here... the food is OK, but expensive and not particularly great. We had the salmon, lamb, and pasta entrees, which were all decent but not spectacular. The desserts were equally average. Service not very attentive but acceptable.

We had a lovely time at the TV Tower restaurant.
I recommend reserving a seat on the internet. This way you don't have to wait to enter the tower (regular waiting time was between 1 and 2 hours when we were there) and have a reserved table by the window.
The main course was very good, the dessert not so much.
The service was good.
The restaurant is moving (1 rotation per hour - I checked) so you can see all the sights of Berlin while you dine.

Booked dinner in advance and this fastracks your admission to tv tower so worth it. We had dinner in restaurant and the views of the sunset over Berlin in the rotating restaurant were absolutely stunning!! This is worth seeing. However ervice is very slow and food is just ok Had a salad for started which wsa mediocre and beef for main which was very fatty and a cheap cut of meat. We were waiting so long for service we declined dessert. Food is average and not worth the price you pay, YOu are kind off at their mercy when you are 200+metres in the sky so really they can serve you any food they want and have as crappy a service as they like!!!

The view is fantastic and unforgettable. The food and drinking is OK but average, and the impression that many people needs to be served in a rush will lower the standard.

We were visiting our daughter in Berlin and took her and her partner to dinner.
I wondered about the quality of the food before we went, thinking that the tower itself was the attraction, but we were not dissapointed by the well thought out and presented food. Although the menu is a little limited, the food itself was excellent. It is a good restaurant initself, but, of course one visits for the view, and pays for it. Booking vip tickets, the meal, drinks and a tip for four of us cost 320euros. But it was a special occassion. And we had a great time.
We booked our table for an hour before sunset, so we could see Berlin in both daylight and at night time.
