HELP I will be visiting Berlin In January with a large group of friends(17) to celebrate my 50th birthday and wish to prebook the restaurants for the evenings.
We are staying at the Swiss otel for 3 nights but are happy to travel to a different area for good food I would prefer to book 3 different styles of restaurant ie rustic /traditinal/modern but preferably German/Austrian cuisine if possible . We all like a good quality food (but not nouvelle cuisine) its nice to experince where the locals would eat and not nessarily the tourists traps.We have no specific budget in mind and would be willing to pay top end price for say one extra special birthday meal . Read lots of reviews in travel journals and foodie magazines but would really like some help and feedback before making resevations.
Choices considered Gugelhof - traditional/rustic
Lutter & wenger -traditinal /elegant or Aigner
Grill Royal -modern and to please the steaks fans and as a contrast to the above.
Also looked at Volt/Florian/Borchardt
The hotel conceirge recommended Keno, Liebniz and Brenner have only found reviews on these 3 on TA
