“great atmosphere, location, drinks and food”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

We spend lots of time in the east of Berlin, and this is our favourite place to eat and drink. An interesting interior has an outside area with seats adjacent to the river Spree, great views of the iconic Friedrichstrasse railway station and bridge (yes, in the movie Bourne DID jump from there!), great beer and good wine. The pub/restaurant's decor is politically interesting and informative. The menu is Rhenish, varied and delicious. Stav is not a fine dining experience. It is a place to eat, drink and socialise with gusto.

“Great Bonn bar in Berlin. Nice kolsch, location & decor”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

Found this bar by chance while looking for a late evening (10pm) coffee. Pretty sure its located where some of the Bourne movie was shot (the railway bridge looked very familiar). Sat inside as there was a chill coming off the river. We ended up having beer, strudel and coffee (first 2 great, coffee average). However, the waitress was great, the decor really interesting and the menu very informative ( a history lesson while ordering food!)
Kolsch, a Cologne 'protected designation' beer, served here in typical small, tall glasses was pretty good. Would return if back in cologne.

“Go for Flammekuchen”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

Found by chance, this restaurant (or pub?) become the number one because of so called Flammekuchen being kind of pizza (?) on ultra thin crust with delicious ingredients including herbs. Perfect place for lunch or beautiful evening on the Spree river. Go there, try their beer, learn about history of two countries (BRD and DDR - not forgetting what communism really was), and eat this great dish.

“A Berlin favorite -- with much improved food”
Reviewed March 12, 2012

I love going to this Bonn/Berlin establishment, and was able to visit three times on my last trip. While in the past the food has been less than stellar, it has been over six years since I've been back and it was a pleasant surprise to be served very good, interesting dishes. As always, go for the atmosphere and the beer, but now you can stay for a meal, too.

“Worth A Visit”
Reviewed January 26, 2012

Hovering halfway between traditional pub and trendy bar (and managing to be neither), it appeals to a broad enough range of people to slowly fill up as the evening progresses. Plenty of tables, nice bar staff, great Kolsch and traditional German food. Prices were not too exorbitant considering the area. The occasional weird punter.
