We were a table of four, on a busy Saturday night, during the pre-Christmas period, with the Christmas market right outside. Great, festive atmosphere a given. We were running late for our reservation, gave the restaurant a heads up on the phone, but whoever answered was a bit clueless and had difficulties in both English and German. The waiter was...

The bar was loaded with people on a Sunday afternoon, but luckily there was a table available at the brasserie side. The atmosphere was cozy, there were families having a Sunday lunch with small children, but that did not disturb anyone. The service was very good, and polite. The food experience was good, very good, and excellent: tuna tartar was... More

Restaurant is in a great location, right by the Opera House so the prices are high because it's in such a local place. Food and service was just ok. Atmosphere was comfortable and service was attentive.

I went there with a friend of mine on Saturday evening and after being treated so rudely by the bar chief I decided to write a review here. Don't go there, until and unless you want to be insulted and mistreated. First he didn't want to serve my friend any tea. We asked he said they only serve Long Island... More

Nicely located next to the opera house, the restaurant decoration and atmosphere is quite sober and comfortable. Menu offers quite a broad choice suitable for all tastes. However food is rather average and rather pricey for what you get. I ordered a beef tartare as starter and it was very average, definitely not well seasoned and rather tasteless. The fish... More

We had dinner at Brasserie Schiller. The location is great as it is next to the opera house and the environment is great too. But I have to say our experience at Schiller was very disappointing.
