Location and contact

Maximilians is cosiness personified! The restaurant has impressive copper and brass pumps and rustic-style furniture. It specialises in Bavarian cuisine, offering a large selection of good hearty food such as carpaccio dumplings and meat loaf, roast potatoes, fried eggs and Reiberdatschi (potato pancakes) served with apple compote. The waiting staff who are garbed in traditional Bavarian dress are constantly on the go, looking after the clientele of tourists, locals and Bavarian émigrés. This restaurant which is situated on the river Spree celebrates the Oktoberfest in September. The restaurant offers a selection of beer and wine.

This place is a must if you want to experience some of the traditional German food, atmosphere and setting. The food is outstanding and so was the service.

The portions were large - in fact, giant. The food was authentic German cuisine and it was delicious. Skip the curryworst - you can get the same elsewhere, and it would be a pity not to sample some of the other excellent menu items. The...More

The portions are massive and very tasty food. Service and food were very quick but the staff could be a little bit friendlier; hence only 4 stars ;) Still a good place to visit if you want traditional German cuisine. 😊

Had a very filling lunch here trying currywurst for the first time as well as some classic Bavarian meatballs. Service was slow although the place was quite busy, but the food was good and the pub itself was nice to relax in.

Seems a bit designed for tourists with the staff in full German costumes but actually there were a lot of German diners too. There was quite a narrow selection of food to choose from but great for trying the German standard dishes. Very generous portions...More

Hearty food, good atmosphere and good service. This is an Bavarian restaurant where all the staff will wear Bavarian outfits serving a range of beers. Definitely an experience to do once in Berlin.
