Met up with some friends at the Zwiebelfisch pub on the north west corner of Savignyplatz. As it was February wasn`t able to enjoy the open windows looking onto the gardens. A friendly welcone, English spoken and resoanble prices for beer and drinks. This a local with a good reputation with the inhabitants, very relaxed and attracts a good mix of clientele including the Literary set adn in general very unpretentious. They do serve good basic food, but didn`t sample it. Again the menu looked interesting for local fare from hearty soup to more and pricing was sensible. Staff very happy if you only want to drink coffee.

All in all a good place to spend and afternoon, evening or both. Recommended when in this part of West Berlin with the S-Bahn stop within 5 minutes walk.

Local bar with great atmosphere- we got such a warm welcome on the first night that we returned the next few nights for the friendly chat, the late opening hours, the music and Zappa the cat lazing in the window witout a care in the world. I can't think of many bars in London where they greet you warmly and remember your favourite tipple on the second visit
This will be our first stop next time we return to Berlin - next time we'll eat, as the food, served late into the night, had that great smell of home cooking !

First visited this bar on our last trip 3 years ago. Bar full of locals with a great atmosphere. Last visit I bought a beer glass off the owner,this time the owner gave me a glass after I told him the story of our last visit. Very nice touch which sums up this bar in a lovely square.

Cannot comment on the food as we did not eat in here, had a few beers on friday night around 11pm, pub was full and a nice atmosphere, no shouting etc like in the UK at the similar time. Good selection of beers and other drinks. The pub cat was happily asleep on the window ledge near us, he adds to the laid back atmosphere! Mix of different genres of music played in the background.

Would definately recommend to people who like to avoid the touristy bars and drink with the locals!

I suppose Zwiebelfisch is really best known as a great local bar where fun things happen but it gave us just what we wanted when we were looking for a light early bite on our walk to the Staatsoper am Schillertheater - super Onion soup and a plate od delicious smoked ham with bread and bitter, washed down with good beer.
