We were for a 2-day citytrip in Berlin. Got some adresses from friends and also foodies. Otherwise would never find this! We arrived with the taxi, under a bridge, grafitti-walls and a small door. Underground athmosphere, i immediatly felt this was the right place. Every 10minutes you get shaked a bit of the trains passing by, loved it! The kitchen... More

We were looking forward to eating here as its comes highly recommended. We wanted a restaurant where we could also enjoy some music after eating. I can't fault the quality of the meat which was so good but we all felt the combinations on the plate just didn't work. We got the pork starter and the quinoa starter. We didn't... More

First when you walk in its unreal how the scene has been layed out. Its an unbeliavable experience. You can easily just enjoy a drink or go to the back of the place to eat. If you go eat i highly recommend the cheeck, i've never had meat so soft and delicious. And for dessert you must try the cheesecake,... More

My foodie colleague recommended this restaurant, so we booked a table for our visit to Berlin. I'd been told the grey door under the arches wouldn't have any sign which was good advice, otherwise we would've missed it. We were running late so I'd called to ensure table would be still available, and it turned out there had been a... More

If you like your exceptional dining behind a closed steel door, graffiti wall under a railway bridge, this is for you. If you just like great food, interesting menu, great cocktails and super cool wait staff who know what they're talking about, then this is for you too. It seems you'll have to book as the doorman will not let... More

Very cool find. Restaurant came highly recommended by some friends. Nondescript door with graffiti under the bridge. No obvious sign. Once you press the buzzer and are permitted inside their is an outstanding bar with excellent bartenders and a fantastic cool vibe. Restaurant is in a room behind the bar with excellent food and service. A+ experience and well worth... More

Hard to find this restaurant, but once you're in, it is quite an experience. The ceviche and sashimi were amazing.. Drinks were great. The rest of the dishes were uneven in quality. All in all an enjoyable meal

This place is really really awesome. The hidden entrance, the kinda spooky attitude from the host, the interior design and the musik was all together one of the best experiences I've had in a restaurant in Berlin! I won't say to much, cuz' I was surprised when I arrived and it was a big part of the experience. Just know... More

I idly suggested this place to a friend on our last night in Berlin after googling articles about random restaurants. The entrance is easy to find once you know it's not easy to find. It's a steel door covered in graffiti at the address you find on Google. We went on a Wednesday night to the restaurant. You push the... More

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
