We went here one evening for a meal due to TA reviews and were not disappointed. The food and service were very good, to the extent we even went for a fabulous breakfast the next day. Highly recommended

With a nice view on the Gendarmenmarkt and the Christmas market you can have a nice drink. Don’t bother having dinner, choices are limited and nothing special. Sweet potato fries were delicious though

Went to the one in Gendarmenmarkt, last week in the evening, just a stroll from our hotel. I had the burger, very salty. My partner had the pulled chicken. Nothing really outstanding really, nothing to write home about. It's a very limited menu.

Shan Bistro is Iranian and German. With great presentation, the food is excellent and the service is wonderful. I had the lamb chops with potatoes and mango chutney. Very, very good.

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
