Popped in here for some early afternoon refreshment and it had everything we could want. It is a nice, traditional looking bar/restaurant. The waitress was lovely. The beer - Kolsh - is my favourite German beer by a country mile, and was perfect. The food was tasty and reasonably priced. What's not to like?

Came here on the recommendation of our hotel concierge. It is definitely a busy place, full of locals. Heard very little English. Service very pleasant and friendly. Food was somewhat disappointing, just not as good as the two other evenings in Berlin, at fairly similarly priced places. Sauerbraten was ok, but I've had better in the US! Apfelstrudel was a...

Flammkuchen was good, beer was also good. Takes credit cards. Empty around noon, despite being in pretty popular area.

High prices for very small plates. But (!), check your bill carefully before you leave. The waiters have a tendency to rise prices for tourists. A place to avoid!

Food was delicious and service was good for a relatively busy week night. Restaurant is spotlessly clean and staff are great. I was keen to speak German and found in Berlin I would always revert to English but the waitress here was fantastic and understood that I was keen to use it! Reasonably priced and gave us a great first... More

My husband and I walked down Friedrichstrasse looking for some German food. We saw this place off the main road. We got their charcuterie and sausage board for two people (Fooderplaat "Kölscher Boor" -für Zwei). It was HUGE and the blood sausage was to die for. The beers were very good and the service was great. It was also such... More

We stopped by Gaffel Haus Tuesday afternoon for food and beer. There was a friendly gentleman standing at the bar with 3 drafts and he recommended a few beers for us to try while he waited for the bartender. I'm not sure what was holding up the bartender, but after about 4-5 minutes, an older woman with dark hair returned... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Mitte
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.
