A very nice place with a wonderful view out onto the Gendarmenmarkt. Service is friendly. We came for breakfast and the dishes were fresh and tasty. I'd come again!

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.

Cool modern interior design, in black and lilac combined with Persian influenses. The food is OK, but not impressing. Rather small servings and not particularily imaginative. An OK place for a quick lunch, i.e. if our are prepared to pay a little extra for the...More

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
