Didn't wait to try the food after being shouted at for no reason. The place is crammed full of tables and clearly they were only interested in keeping every seat occupied to make more money. Don't bother eating here as there are lots of excellent restaurants nearby.

The taboule was perfect, with added pomegranate seeds...very moist with just the right amount of citrus! The wraps were very moist on the inside and the wraps themselves stayed nice and dry. The restaurant looked popular based... More

Staying in Prenzlauer Berg

Neighbourhood Profile
Prenzlauer Berg
No Berlin neighbourhood has undergone a greater change than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays, thousands turn the park next to remnants of the wall into a playground for street artists, musicians, and flea market shoppers. This attracts young urban families who enjoy the balance of big city life and small-town comfort. Meanwhile, trendy, young, upper-class visitors from all over the world are attracted to the local high-end shops, cafés, and sophisticated bars and restaurants. The merits of this transformation are a favorite topic of debate around the city, but it makes for some of the best people-watching Berlin has to offer.
