Restaurant looked like a work side. There was running just one poor waitress who was normally very friendly but just could not cope with such an amount of work alone. So, we had made an order and were waiting for 30 minutes, at the end...More

Five stars due to service and price. Perhaps fewer based on food alone (definitely four stars) and ambience (again four stars). Imagine, in Berlin, in 2017, a decent meal of Greek food (horitatiki salads to start, platter of meat, sides of beans and vegetables), two...More

This was my local restaurant when stayed in Kreuzberg. The owners are lovely, food is delicious and Ouzo even better. The price isn't bad at all. Miss this place, definitely coming back as soon as possible! Xx

Eat here for dinner with friends, nice atmosphere and service excellent, I'm no expert on Greek food, I thought it was average, but what would I know, I probably won't be back but enjoyed our evening and the waiter was excellent

Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can
both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central
neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the
1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around

rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a
carefree life here. An old hospital even became a
hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today
