We happened to go there one late afternoon on a rainy day. The sand witches were okay but the rest of the food was average. the apple strudel was good. The place is over priced with very few vegetarian options.

We wanted to experience some local food in a centrally located restaurant after our visit to Reichstag, and Café Einstein was just perfect place to do it. The food was very traditional and, as you would expect from German food, not very elaborate. A steak...More

Well located not far from the Brandenburg Gate. Full of interesting old photos on the walls. Typical local menu, well-priced and large portions. Excellent steak tartare! Nice service and good choice in wines.

The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
