“Charming restaurant full of character”
Reviewed January 16, 2013 via mobile

Visited this restaurant and absolutely loved it. The owner is an excellent hostess and really made us feel welcome. The interior has a very warm and homely feeling to it, and the waitress was also very friendly and chatty. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced considering the quality. If you are looking for traditional German food in Berlin look no further than this place.

“Homely German food; massive portion sizes, very indulgent. Good vegetarian options.”
Reviewed January 9, 2013 via mobile

Nice to see at least 3 vegetarian options on the extensive menu. Others dining who ordered meat were surprised by the sheer size of their meal but also uncompromised quality (eg. pork knuckle, meatballs etc) Very delicious meal for really reasonable prices. There were only German people eating around us and the decor is humble but endearing. Best of all was the service, the woman who I am assuming may have owned the place was so welcoming. As was the waitress. Would definitely recommend for some hearty German fare!

“Definitely the best pork knuckle in Berlin”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

My partner and I did some research into some hearty German cuisine (i.e. I googled the best pork knuckle in Berlin) and Marjellchen came up. The reviews looked good so we decided to check it out.

On first impressions the decor was a little dated but it added to quaint and cosy atmosphere which the restaurant gave off. There service was second to none as the waitress made a massive effort to help us who do not speak German.

When our meals arrived we were impressed with the generous servings. Both meals (pork knuckle & lamb) we delicious. Faultless.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

“Wonderful Atmosphere”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

Went to this restaurant last time i as in Berlin and loved it. The food itself is authentic and good, but it is not the best part of this place. The people who work here are the best. They are so friendly and welcoming and the woman, who i assume own the place (?) comes over and talks to you, makes you feel welcome and even occasional sings along to her step. Great evening!
