“For the Ratskeller enthusiast !”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Koepenick is a pleasant suburb in the south east of Berlin which appears (somewhat unusually) to have the only Ratskeller in the entire city. For the those, like me, who seek out these places to enjoy a traditional German meal this place is a must. Many towns across Germany have a municipal restaurant like this in/under their town hall. Either run by the city itself or franchised to a local business, it is a matter of civic pride that these municipal enterprises create a good impression. Koepenick Ratskeller does exactly that. It has a substantial menu of good local fare and an extensive drinks list served in a traditional cellar (or in good weather you can sit outside and watch the trams go by). The service is polite and efficient without being over-friendly. The prices are reasonable.
Getting there is a bit of a challenge but worth it. S-Bahn 3 to Koepenick station then tram 62 or 68 to the Rathaus. The trams run in a one way loop in the streets around the Rathaus, so be careful you get one going in the right direction going home ! Don't forget to meet the eponymous Captain whose statue stands on the Town Hall steps. His story makes very interesting reading

“Great solid german food!”

If you are out for good, solid and well-made german classics you have to try this place :) Large portions, lots of meat and anything but expensive!

“Nice atmosphere and good food”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

Eating with candlelight created very nice atmosphere. The food was delicious and I wouldn't call it overpriced. I ordered trout and it was the best fish I tried in Berlin. The portions are huge, but I already got used to this in Berlin. The house wine was not bad either. The service was fast and good. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who comes for a visit to Kopenick

“Tramtastic View.”
Reviewed 1 June 2013

We ate here three nights over a five night visit so were clearly impressed. The food was good value, the service prompt and the camp waiters very entertaining. If you like trams and the weather is fine you can dine outside just a few yards from the tracks and watch the world rumble by on rails! Inside there are sometiomes live jazz performances.

We had recently Dinner in this Restaurant, but it was nothing really special, regarding the high Prizes for the Dishes - we expected more Value for our Money
