After a day of long walks, this was great. Johnny welcomed us as warmly as you can imagine, and we had great chats while there. .. and the food was great, including the special homemade soups (we chatted with the lovely woman who made them). My girlfriend, who is Brazilian, really enjoyed chicken in peanut sauce with rice, since you don't see much rice in Berlin. Really recommended!

I was looking for a lunch spot and just happened upon Johnny's Bar. Great experience. The food was good but not out of the world. Satisfying. But the service was super friendly and the beer was cold and reasonably priced. Nice atmosphere, too. Really friendly people made this a fun experience. Stop in and say hi (and have a cold Erdinger while you're at it).

We stopped by Johnny's Bar ("cafe" would be a more appropriate name!) while in the local area looking for a quick bite to eat for lunch. We should really have looked harder...

The place itself is rather quaint and very welcoming with friendly staff, particularly Johnny himself. However, that's the end of the positives. The friendly service didn't equate to good service unfortunately as our group of four proceeded to wait 45 minutes for some simple toasties - I'm absolutely convinced our order had just been forgotten about, and it's not as though there was an excuse of the place being busy as it simply wasn't. Not only that, but the toasties themselves were terrible, packed full of "plastic cheese" - quality had quite clearly been deserted in favour of quick profit margins.

Overall, very disappointing - though if you're just wanting a drink this place would be fine. Just avoid the food!
