|We've found lots of nice places to eat in
Berlin. We generally try to keep to German cuisine mainly
because it seems pointless to go for the sorts of food
that we can so easily get at home. These are our current
found this wonderful German restaurant on TripAdvisor when
it occupied the top slot for Berlin. Its proprietress
serves the dishes that her grandmother used to make, and
these represent the cuisine of the former German
territories of East Prussia, West Prussia, Pomerania and
Silesia. She moves cheerfully amongst the customers in her
cosy, friendly restaurant checking that everything is to
their satisfaction and seems to speak an enormous number
of languages. Our tip when eating here is; don't have a
starter! The main course alone will be a challenge to
finish! On top of all the other pluses the prices are very
reasonable. Marjellchen is situated just off the
Kurfürstendamm in West Berlin, but is only a short walk
from the Savignyplatz S-Bahn station, so it's really
simple to travel to and from.
Bavarian-style restaurant in a very ordinary, residential
part of Prenzlauer Berg that serves delicious German food.
The incredibly friendly serving staff all dress in
traditional clothes. Get there from Alex on trhe M4 tram
bar/restaurant (formerly Oranium) on Oranienburgerstrasse,
two tram stops up from Hackescher Markt, that Gill and I
often visit when we’re in Berlin. It’s where we first
‘discovered’ dates wrapped in bacon! Lately, standards
seem to have dropped a bit, but it's still a good place to
stop for a drink.
is clear visibility at the top of the tower the night-time
views across Berlin from the revolving restaurant are
spectacular. We've eaten here several times, but with
having to pay 12 euros just to go up in the lift before
you even sit down to eat it can get a bit pricy.
restaurant is built into a former electrical sub-station
just off Karl-Marz Allee. It's a dramatic setting and the
food is equally impressive.
fancy a pleasant lunch and a drink then this Hackescher
Markt bar/restaurant is the place. The food is very
German, and if this isn't your thing you might struggle
with the menu, but the excellent Bavarian beer could well
make up for that.
|| This is
an excellent place to have breakfast in a stylish modern
atmosphere. The restaurant is tucked away in a side street
close to Hackescher Markt, but it gets really very busy at
pricey but rather nice restaurant on the banks of the
Spree near to Brecht's Berliner Ensemble theatre.
Brechts (see above) this French-themed restaurant/bistro
has a nice riverside terrace. They also served excellent
|Zur letzten Instanz
claimed to be the oldest restaurant in Berlin and Napoleon
is said to have eaten here on his way back from Moscow in
1812. Be warned - it's a very German menu and, therefore,
very meat-based, but a very pleasant place to spend a
Berlin winter's evening!
in Wilhelmstrasse, close to the Brandenburg Gate, this is
a very convenient place to have lunch during a walking
tour. It's a very German interior and the menu offers 'Old
very German restaurant with a very cosy ambience. It's in
the Nikolai quarter near Alexanderplatz
another very German restaurant, again near to
Alexanderplatz. We visited in mid-summer and ate outdoors
under an awning, but we thought it would be nice to visit
again in mid-winter since the indoors section downstairs
looks so inviting for a cold night.
highly indeed on TripAdvisor, which is what drew us there.
The food was nice but expensive, and the atmosphere was
very French. Doubt that we'll visit again, but an
interesting experience. Run by an elegant, elderly couple
when we were there, and we thought that perhaps it was
time for them to think about retiring :o)
tapas in a delightfully modern setting. Doesn't open until
18:00, and definitely worth booking.

bar/restaurant in Glinkastrasse, close to the Brandenburg
Gate. Flammkuchen (a sort of German pizza), cold meats,
salads and nice wine. Staff speak good English and are
