“Very disappointing...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

I went to Lichtenberg Cafe for lunch on a Saturday. The restaurant was quite full but we did get a nice table for four near the bookshelves where we had a nice view on the entire restaurant. The atmosphere was good and the staff was very friendly. We ordered our dishes and .....waited, waited and waited..... We complained on several occasions but it was close to 45 minutes when we finally got served our starters. The soups were not tasty as they were watered down and my tuna tartar was prepared with huge pieces of onions (I guess they just did not have time to cut the onions into small pieces). Then we waited, waited and waited to finally receive our main dishes which we all barely touched. My pasta was overlooked (maybe this Is why it took so long) and the octopus was not edible. Clearly the kitchen and organisation need to change.

“Great food, wine and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2014

I went here with a large group of people and the waiters were very accommodating. I thought the prices were pretty reasonable, I had a chicken salad which was about 15Eu and many glasses of wine that were about 2.90 each. There was a jazz sort of band playing that was nice too. They also have the most amazing chandeliers that are made from a variety of different things such as glass bowls, spatulas, wine glasses, ornaments etc. This is a good place to have a nice dinner with friends.

“go for the free jazz gigs and awesome desserts”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2013

I went there for a late dessert and drink; the cafe looks like an interesting combination of classic and modern. There was also a brief jazz gig for the evening. The desserts were tasty but I would have expected a larger collection of beers.

“Sunday Brunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2012

For anyone who loves Sunday Brunch, you have to try Cafe Lichtenberg. It is a buffet style brunch with a German touch. The food was amazing and the deserts were incredible, and the best part was it is reasonably priced. This was the perfect way to end our weekend in Germany.
