The seating was a bit weird, we were sat on a large table, behind a wall..quite difficult to explain....imagine you had a private dining room. However is was very small, cramped, with a rustic theme it meant that all night you stared at a brick wall if you wanted a break from chatting with your friends. I ordered the lamb... More

My partner and I went there for dinner for the first time in this restaurant for our anniversary, it was an spontaneous decision, we chose this restaurant because the restaurant looks very romantic with a grandpiano inside, the huge chandeliers, and many candle lights. The restaurant was busy when we went but luckily we have made reservation, and we were... More

An almost 'open-arm-welcome' made us feel at home immediately. The diversity in food as well on the wine card told us we hit the right spot. We did'nt got disapointed!!! The live pianist made this dining experience to a 'have-to-come-back' place. And so we did. When on holiday and feeling thát much at home....... For sure worth a visit (or... More

Expensive, very average food, very bad service and be ready to wait for a long long time, when I spoke to our waiter about it he looked like I was insulting him but we waited nearly three hours for some cold starters and then some meats and pasta. Avoid it !!!

it was disappointing for the price. while the food was good quality wise, i was hoping for more variety and the selection was pretty unspectacular and caters mostly to a distinctive taste. if you want mostly ham or (smoked) fish and hearty cuisine, there is enough selection. maybe i caught them on the wrong day and they change their menu...

Go here if you are looking for a more romantic spot than the other restaurants in the area. We were in Berlin for 5 1/2 weeks and liked this one for special dinners. The menu does have enough English to now exactly what is in your selections but thankfully no pictures, one of my foreign restaurant rules is - skip... More

Was near to our hotel and received good reviews. Had a very pleasant and relaxing candlelight dinner. The ambiance if wonderful and the service was attentive. The wine we ordered was sold out, but the wait staff suggested an alternative that was excellent. The shrimp with linguini was excellent, with a thick and flavorful sauce. The sea bass included the... More

By chance we found ourselves in Filou a couple of days into our holiday. Thankfully we were very relaxed, as time seams to slow down once seated. Be patient! This really adds to the charm of this beautifully decorated restaurant. Everything falls into place once the service arrives at your table. The waiter was warm and friendly. The starters copious...

We got to this place by complete coincidence. The place is so cool and cozy with candle lights, nice chandeliers, amizing wine racks and oldish looks and feel. In addition an amazing Piano in the middle that looks and sounds great. The service team were friendly and the food was impeccable. We were a bunch of guys in the middle... More

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighbourhood Profile
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theatres close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
