We were 6 who came to chill and hang out after lunch at another place. We ordered biers and some munch food and hung out here for a couple of hours. Good service and quiet place. Was not crowded tho it was a Sunday.

We stopped here for breakfast and coffee one morning. Breakfast was lovely - typical European spread of meats, cheese, fruit and bread. The flatbread was homemade and delicious and warm. I thought the pricing was reasonable. The service was friendly and attentive. This is right opposite Boxhagener Platz and is a good location to sit outside and people watch. Definitely... More

I've eaten here a few times and I personally found that each dish I tried tasted more or less the same. The food was mediocre and the service was pretty substandard as well.

As part time vegetarians we love places where there is a good selection of vegetarian dishes. This place has it. Their vegetable dishes are prepared with fantasy. Great fresh turkish bread stuffed with tomatoes, rather big meals for less than 10 euro's. The friendly lady who served us worked quick and efficient. The only thing I did not like is... More

We walked by the entrance of this Bar and restaurant, read the menu displayed outside and decided to try it, although it looked more for cocktails. Firstly the kindness of the staff impressed us, after being in Berlin for 3 days we didn't expect anything like that. Super nice staff and.. Super nice steak! Portions are big, every dish of...

Staying in Friedrichshain

Neighbourhood Profile
When you arrive at Warschauer Strasse in the heart of the district, you have found one of Berlin’s party hotspots. At night in Friedrichshain, the energy is palpable and the streets of this old worker's quarter are full of street musicians. On one hand, you may find a bar with international crowds, electronic music, long lines and panoramic views - on the other, an outside venue by old train yards featuring decrepit buildings and live alternative music. No matter your taste, the best way to end a night out in Friedrichshain is sitting by the Spree River at the East side gallery, the longest and best preserved piece of the Berlin Wall, watching the sun rise over the beautiful Oberbaum Bridge.
