The food was fantastic as was the service. Whilst quite full for a Monday evening, it was relatively quiet. Possibly reflecting the more subdued character of the restaurant. The food was - as noted - fantastic.

The set lunch on weekdays is fantastic value for money. All dishes were excellent and of clearly two star level. The best were the desserts we thought.

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

When I was there, everyone was dressed elegantly but in different styles So, as far as I know there is not a dress code. If you go, I think it is nice to also dress nicely for a special restaurant.
