Very nice restaurant/bar with an amazing view across Berlin. Good food, fun atmosphere. Security at the door could be more friendly though.

I really don't understand why there are so many great reviews. For the price tag and the hype, the expectation is high. The experience I and my 5 dinner companions had didn't meet the mark on several points. The service was hit and miss - efficient but unfriendly; the food was good but not great; the view was nice enough... More

A lift on the outside of the building is a give-away of location hidden behind other buildings. Once inside, it appears like a posh place, but staff very friendly. We went upstairs for cocktails and enjoyed the view which I think is clearer than when I went to the Fernsehen Turm to eat for a rotating view. Anyhows, we did... More

It was all there: A chic place, a view of the city, professional service and attractive dishes. And yet, by the end of the evening, the four of us who have been there shared the same opinion: A nice place, though not exceptional. Nice view, though not much to see at night. And the most important element, the food left... More

Solar is a great place to go for dinner and drinks. It was really good. Our waiter, Mel, was the best ever. So friendly and very good explaining the menu and making recommendations. He made the experience fun!! The view is great. Fun bar above dining. I would suggest reservations. A little bit tucked away from the street but taxi... More

Located at the top of a socialist architecture building, it offers a special feeling already when one enters and is welcomed into a panoramic elevator to reach the Resto. The view is stunning both from the Resto and from the bar (this latter located at the upper floor). The menu is short and well done already providing hints of professionalism... More

Staying in Kreuzberg

Neighbourhood Profile
Kreuzberg
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighbourhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
