My boyfriend and I visited Berlin last year and found Captn Schillow in one of the recommend places to visit leaflets. It was quite difficult to find as it is a little out of the way but once we got there it was amazing! When we arrived we were asked if we had made a reservation and when we replied no the waiter looked slightly concerned. We worried that there might have been no room and were about to leave when he called us back and began to rearrange tables just to fit us in! We also didn't speak any German when we visited (aside from the usual hello, please, thank you and goodbye) and when we got there we found that it was a very traditional German restaurant with only one waiter who spoke English and no English translated menu. Our waiter was absolutely fantastic! He brought us the specials board and talked us through what everything on the menu was, he also asked us what we would like to eat and then recommended dishes for us based on what we liked. We both had a traditional smoked fish dish with potatoes and it was lovely, amazing quality and value for money. It was a fantastic meal and the atmosphere of the restaurant was wonderful, we were made to feel really welcome and the waiter was amazing!

Found this restaurant by looking in a little leaflet found in the hotel.
So quiet & I think popular with locals as a few in there when we went on a Friday night. The waiter was so helpful & advising what was on the menu as we didn't read German. We had a platter main course to share which included smoked salmon, olives salad etc was delicious! Then sea bass special main. Was fantastic & felt so lucky to find it!! Definitely recommend & certainly not over priced really reasonable!

We went here for two nights on the trot on our holiday in Berlin. We stayed at the Novotel in Tiergarten and it's only a short walk from there. The food is absolutely delicious! It was reasonably priced and the staff were really warm and welcoming. The dining in a old boat is unique and really beautiful! The steps leading onto it were lit with twinkly lights and candles and the inside is beautiful. A really nice place to stop by at!

Found this lovely little place by accident when out walking - almost opposite the Novotel Am Tiergarten. We had dinner, excellent food and realistically priced. Charming man served us. Were very surprised to find such a lovely little place in the bottom of a very ordinary looking little boat! Recommended. We look forward to returning in warmer month and sitting on the deck !
