Dined at Restaurant VAU for my partner's birthday during our first time to Berlin. The staff was incredibly friendly and professional. We decided on the set menu, and were continually impressed with each course. Very interesting concepts, and ingredients prepared in ways we had never seen before. Our server had a vast knowledge of wine and successfully paired the meal... More

A lunch-time disappointment! Obviously caters to business people, as the only other male guests, and they were few, had jackets, unlike myself. My wife and I dined al fresco on a fine May day. A wonderful location for tourists, central to attractions like the French Cathedral. I ordered the daily special, three courses for 48 euros: a warm salad, duck... More

During my fiancé’s birthday travel in April 2016 we decided to have lunch at VAU. It has one Michelin star and is just off the Gendarmenmarkt, where the Franzoesiche Dom and Deutscher Dom are located, on Jaegerstrasse in the heart of Berlin, Germany. It is in a quiet area and VAU has as a direct neighbor the Greek Embassy. The... More

Meals were excellent, the staff were very helpful & friendly too, prices were resonable too, well recommended. Although it's away from the main tourist area (on the roundabout) of the promenade it's worth going.

This is a Michelin star restaurant. So we expected Michelin quality. The food is OK, a bit on the salty side, and the goats cheese dish is star quality. Problems: we didn't get the wine we wantet (the Musar); instead we got a 100 euro German cab sav that's probably "good for a German red..." Also, I found a HAIR... More

A delight from entry until the dessert after the dessert! The food was very artistically presented and the flavors were simply magnificent. They treated us to several extras.....tiny ceramics of interesting apps, palate cleanser, and even extra candy after dessert. This was our favorite restaurant in Berlin! Service was excellent and presented by servers who take pride in what they... More

We came for a lunch and everything was excellent. Service and food, not much atmosphere but I guess at dinner would be better.

It's definitely doesn't have a 1 star Michelin standard. The food was just alright, they definitely failed to bring the best of the food out. it's was like 6.5-7 out of 10. The service...was not terribly ugly but was not great either. Nobody open the napkin for you and my wine went out a couple times and I had to... More

First bad point: terrace of restaurant looks like a prison court yard. Second: pace of serving unbearable. Third: Waiters: looking and behaving like no star terrace. Fourth and last: food not 1 star Michelin.

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
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 way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
