“Quite a treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014 via mobile

A true gem this "local" restaurant. Walked in without a reservation but we're able to get a spot at the bar. The food was great, lots of nice and delicate, sometimes forgotten tastes in the meat as well as the veggies. Best potato gratin I've had in years (sorry ma). Very simple, basic decor which is definitely not matched on the plate. True paintings of food combined with great wines (by the glass). We'll be back.

“Brilliant restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

We ate here on Valentine's evening and had pre-booked a table. We arrived and had a few minutes wait at the bar as it was very busy. Our table was in a kind of alcove which was nice and the waitress did an excellent job of translating the menu for us. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was fantastic. We would love to visit again if we have another trip to Berlin!

“Best restaurant ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2014

I was really excited about coming here because of the reviews and it was even better than I expected!
Amazing atmosphere, food and service and for a very decent price!
Can't wait to come here again when I am back in Berlin!
Make sure to make a reservation to avoid disappointment because it's extremely popular and was absolutely packed when we were there.
Can't recommend this restaurant highly enough - just go!!!

“great buzzy local restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

Incredibly solicitous manager worked hard to fit us in on a very crowded night [ they all seemed to be], food and wine very good, ambience local and buzzy - I even managed to leave my handbag behind but there it was waiting for me next morning - greatly recommended.

“Amazing Evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014

After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor and looking over the menus, I was really excited to visit Lokal. The food was very good and the energy was wonderful. It was a client dinner, and this was just the right blend of cool and delicious. Thanks, Joshua, for the lovely service! This was my first visit to Berlin, and I can't wait to come back.
