“Please let this be a success”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

Berlin-Friedrichshain is not the easiest area to start a new restaurant, with the gentrification-loathing locals frowning upon anything that even remotely resembles like a Prenzlberg-type of thing.

Well, that's their problem, then.

Because the Butterhandlung is a great place, run by some lovely folks from all across the globe, who are trying very hard to make this restaurant a success. They deserve it. The menu doesn't offer a whole lot of options - which is a good thing! Food is excellent, they've got some good wines as well, and on warm summer evenings, all you want to do is enjoy both, while relaxing under the stars at the corner of Müggelstrasse and Scharnweberstrasse.

Please, please let this be a success - the Butterhandlung adds so much to this area of Friedrichshain. As for me, I'll come here as often as I can. It's just a perfect place.

Highly recommended.

“Great New Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

This recently opened restaurant was recommended to us by our tour guide who lives in this area. It is not in central Berlin but is well worth the train ride needed to get to it. I believe our server was Nicole. She was great. Good English and very pleasant and attentive. Just like you find in a nice restaurant in the States and very unusual for Berlin. The food was great too. There were three of us in our party and I don't recall the total bill but it was reasonable. I would highly recommend this out of the way, non-touristy restaurant in Berlin! We were also greeted by one of the owners who was also very nice.
