Dick Wirtin is very popular with tourists so it is probably best to book. It is really a bar which serves traditional German food from a fairly small menu. The portions are huge so make sure you are ready to eat when you go. I ordered roast beef with onions as over our stay in Berlin I was feeling quite porked out. Unfortunately the beef was so tough I couldn't cut through it. The meal was exchanged without fuss and with good grace. The replacement was far superior. My partner had roast pork with red cabbage and potato dumplings. No complaints there except for being unable to eat it all due to the portion size.
Service is a bit haphazard but willing. The place was quite busy when we went.
The cost is good value but it isn't really a fine dining experience. You get what you pay for I suppose. We sat outside as the inside was hot and stuffy. The interior has seen better days but it seems to thrive as a traditional bar rather than an up market eatery.

This restaurant (pub style) was quite close to our hotel (Am Steinplatz - see rave review) and was recommended by the concierge when we asked for somewhere traditional.
Very busy when we arrived and hot inside, we managed to secure a table. Our waiter was excellent throughout, giving recommendations on the food and the beer. We skipped mains having been warned about the portion size, and enjoyed immensely the [huge] schnitzel, and the roast pork with red cabbage and dumplings. The table adjacent to us fell into the trap of ordering mains and sides - which prompted some friendly banter when the two of them were faced with a mountain of food to eat.
Highly recommended for a genuine experience and great value.

We loved the local charm, the interior, the food and the price level was very fair. The only thing we didn't like was the live music being played which was a bit disturbing if you wanna talk.

We had a lovely dinner here, schnitzel with potatoes and great kasespatzle. The athmosphere is relaxed and authentically german. We especially recommend the home made rhubarb liqueur.
