This bar was local to us and we drank here most days. We felt very comfortable and relaxed drinking here. Very friendly and welcoming. Recommended if you are staying in this part of Berlin.

We stumbled upon this bar/restaurant on our first evening in Berlin, having felt very let down by the look of the Blue Frog, a well-rated bar on the opposite side of Grolmanstrasse. We looked across the street, from the near-deserted Blue Frog, to Zwiebelfisch, which was full of people inside and out.
This place is fine if you just want a drink, even though plenty of people were also eating there (the restaurant area is a separate room, or you can eat in the bar if you want to).
It took a while to get served, partly as we didn't understand that in Berlin you get waiter/waitress service rather than ordering drinks at the bar.
But when the beer came it was the best amongst quite a few we enjoyed in Berlin; a famous Berlin pils called Schultheiss. Even though we drank this same beer at another, very well-known, Berlin bar, it tasted better at Zwiebelfisch.
So, cheaper than drinking in the centre of the city, and a buzzy, upbeat atmosphere: well worth a visit if you staying in the neighbourhood, or before visiting one of the many restaurants nearby, or to eat there as well, although we cannot say how good the food was.

This classic Berliner Kneipe on the Savigny Platz in Charlottenburg area is well worth a visit for those who want to experience the real McCoy. The walls are covered with pictures of B and C celebrities and old posters and photos, the staff is most friendly with a pronounced sense of humour, the beer is great and we had the famous and delicious onion soup. A certain place to revisit next time in Berlin.

This is a great find in a quiet corner of Savignyplatz, Charlottenburg and a piece of "real" Berlin. There is a lovely relaxed atmosphere with friendly staff and plenty of locals despite being near to the more touristy spots in and around the Ku'damm. Great value, tasty bar food which changes on a daily basis and excellent wine/beer. We were told that the resident tabby cat is well known throughout Germany!

I like very much the atmosphere of this place. Always nice to have a beer in the afternoon or a daily menu for lunch.
