Visited for dinner one night. The restaurant has a traditional selection of German dishes (schnitzel, bratwurst and the like) and an ok selection of beers. The food was of standard quality, but the atmosphere and milieu is worth a visit.

The Cordon Bleu with freshly cooked pommes was very good and recommended. The beer was Berliner Kindl. The Pils is great. 10-12 items on the menu, which all are freshly cooked

Another hidden gem in Berlin. Excellent range of traditional German fare. The eisbien, beef dishes, soups and desserts are delicious. And another surprise was a great pianist. Entertainment is not always provided so call to check. Cheerful service.

I'm not a fan of eateries on the main drag. It's all those neon signs & bright lights that put me off. We stumbled across this restaurant whilst walking the back streets, whilst praying for divine intervention to give us a cosy, German restaurant on our last night in Berlin. Our prayers were answered with this gem. The ambience &... More

I went here for dinner with friends and I loved it. It is truly Berlin style with good food. Locals come here and only the odd tourist. It is located in the very centre of Westberlin, and yet quiet and lovely. Will come back.

We visited here a few weeks ago. Staff were very friendly and the place has a very German feel. Food was good and beer was great!

Whilst in Berlin for a long weekend I found this bar through the Trip advisor web. Wow, what a place, our barmaid Deliliah looked after us superbly. We ordered drinks had the pork knuckle(it could have fed three) and with starters the bill came to 42euros! What a result, that meal in our hotel would have been 80/90 euros. Go... More

The first of many local restaurants that had a special Spargel (asparagus) menu for the season. We had schnitzel and wurst with thick white asparagus spears served with hollandaise sauce -- everything was very tasty and portions were generous. Nice crowd of mostly locals, and a piano player who never quit. Waitress spoke English though the main menu was also... More

We wanted some traditional German food and this place delivered it! The food was best I had in years. I'd recommend to have a look at what specials they have on too, I don't eat meat but my friend got the biggest falling off the bone piece of pork I've ever seen! I also spent ages just looking at the... More

Alt-Berliner Traditionsgaststatte mit einer Moblierung der Jahrhundertwende.Nach dem 2.Weltkrieg war es das erste Theater des bekannten Berliner Kabaretts,"Die Stachelschweine".Ihr Hauptdarsteller, Wolfgang Gruner, ist mit den "Stachelschweinen" weit uber die Grenzen Berlins hinaus, bekannt geworden. Damit kein Stuck altes Berlin verloren geht, eroffnete Wolfang Gruner in den 60-ziger Jahren, das Alt-Berliner Lokal "Zur Kneipe". Im Sinne von Wolfgang Gruner fuhrt Karl-Heinz Frohlich seit 1989,kurz vor dem Mauerfall, die Gaststatte "Zur Kneipe" weiter.Fur unsere auslandischen Gaste haben wir Speisekarten in 10 verschiedenen Sprachen. ___

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighbourhood Profile
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theatres close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
