My wife and I ate at The Bird last night with two friends while on a city break in Berlin, off the back of a recommendation from another friend...and we weren't let down!

If you're wondering why such an unpretentious venue sits in the top 20 Berlin restaurants on TripAdvisor it comes down to this...a simply fantastic combination of friendly service, great atmosphere, fantastic beer and quality food.

A testament to just how good The Bird is comes in the fact that when we arrived at around 9pm on a Sunday evening, the place was absolutely heaving...and continued to be so all night. Unfortunately we couldn't get at table inside, so braved the chilly evening and ate outside after being warmly welcomed by the staff...and boy was it worth it. AMAZING burgers, better than any I've ever eaten, coupled with skin-on fries and quality German beer. The chicken wings were a great side too...check out the tongue-in-cheek comment in the menu about why they no longer refer to them as buffalo wings!

A word of advice...come here with an appetite, the portions are large to say the least! Also, if you're the kind of person looking for more formal dining and you're not prepared to simply get stuck in, don't come here...you won't like it, and being honest, you're definitely not the target customer for this place (the menu will even tell you as such!).

Overall...just go. Even if you're staying the other side of the city it's well worth the trip...the world needs more venues like this!

Went for supper with family. Make sure you make reservations as the place was packed when we left. Also a meal here can take awhile so expect to stay for 90 + minutes.

Our burgers were good ! Really loved the chili cheese fries though. Fantastic job, great service.

Great little place in Berlin with what is one of the best burgers I have ever had. But it is not just the burger, the whole experience is just amazing, from the funny menu to the people running the place. It also had a couple of vegetarian options to keep my girlfriend happy. Was quite busy on a Monday night, so booking is recommended. We booked a week in advance.

They claimed it was the best burger in the world... and at first I really doubted it.
But they were right, it was a VERY good burger, not the best in the world (that honour lies with JO BURGER in Dublin, Ireland) but hey second best burger in the world, thats good right?

Do make a reservation rather than just call in!
We walked in on spec and had to wait AGES to get served, the queue at the door was mental...

The music is heavy, the bar staff probably drunk and you'll get a dirty look if you ask for cutlery. This place is not the Ritz, its far from fancy, its rough and ready and all in the best possible way. I would definitely eat here again - as everyone else said, skip lunch and go here hungry!!!
