“A perfect sunday night.”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Many of the restaurants in Berlin are closed on sunday. Not Lokal.
We made a late reservation at 6 for 7PM and were lucky to get a table.
The staff is friendly, the food inspired. Add a stylish contempory setting and you know already after you entered that you'll have a good time.
The Taube, pigeon, was the best I had in years. Also the steak with spinach and home made nudeln was generous and star level. The cheese cake with strawberry was a perfect finish.
The acoustics can get a bit loud once the restaurant is full, but this is the only minus.
Conclusion: Very good value and highly recommended!

“Fantastic food!”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

It is a very small place, with a great chef, who cooks vegetables, fish, meat, and liver in a fantastic way.
It is worthy to go, particulary if you want to see interesting and young crowd. As a starter try the kidnnes strudel, unbelievable good.

It is my favorit in Berlin, looks simple, but in fact the food is very sofisticate.

“Modern German food”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

This restaurant -- which is arguably my favorite in Berlin -- has a short menu that is changed frequently and offers both vegetarian and meat selections. Unlike most German fare, the meals here won't put you into a food coma! The dishes here are prepared to perfection in a shabby chic establishment that has always been packed everytime I've come (reservations are a must). One of my recent favorites was Jersualem artichoke soup. There are also excellent beer and wine offerings..

“Very relaxed but hip place”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

We had trouble finding this from the Trip Advisor app. It's a corner restaurant but the numerical address is a bit jumbled here. It's 61 or 601...anyway there is no obvious signage.

We went on a Friday evening and were able to secure a table till 9pm. The menu is very meat and fish orientated and the vegetarian dishes were goats cheese, which I hate....however the lovely staff had no problem finding an alternative cheese for my dish. The food was freshly prepared and the whole experience was very relaxed. This place is obviously popular with young and hip locals but had none of the airs of pretension one might normally experience in a similar place in London or Manchester.

For Berlin it was quite an expensive place to eat but the quality was evident, service perfect and I would visit again.
