Went here merely because it was near to our hotel-Tryp Mitte.

The Chef expalined the menu to us, as it was in German and helped with our choices.

The place feels like a locals hang out-and all the better for it. Odd bits and bobs decorate the place and it makes for a cosy atmosphere. We ordered "lager" and were given something a little on the dark side but non the less really nice, and were also given Vodka Shots on the house.

If we had been in Berlin longer we would have gone back without hesitation.

Very friendly.

Was directed towards here by reviews and wasn't disappointed. A Father and his welcoming, chatty Son who made me feel immediately comfortable despite my lack of German. My traditional German dish of bacon, red cabbage and potato served within 10 minutes and they even have their own house dark beer. A really cosy atmosphere that removed me from the rigours of the business day. Highly recommended for hospitality and value.

A small but very tasty menu, there is even a home brewed lager on offer!

There is a cosy atmosphere, lots of candle lighting and friendly service.

Owner is quite friendly and chatty even though his English isn't great. His son is there as well and he helps translate but also very friendly. The dark house beer is awesome... the food is great and priced fairly.

Be prepared to drink a few shots each time you go ;)

Limited seating and popular place....so LARGE groups are difficult to fit in at times but 4 or less isnt a problem. I had the burger, messy but delicious as well as the schnitzel which was ok. The red curry chicken dish was very nice.... I dont think it was on the menu... but im not sure since the menu is only in german.... this is the only downside really..

Usually one of the servers can translate it well enough for you though.
