Found in the Mitte area of Berlin this restaurant is right in the centre of the capital. My partner and I ate in the upstairs ballroom for lunch.
On first appearance the building appears dilapidated, with pealing walls and damaged furniture. However once upstairs and at the entrance to the ballroom you gain a glimpse of romantic candle lit tables which are sat under a large hanging chandelier.
The restaurant is very spacious with a handful of different size tables spread through the ballroom, adding to a very dispersed atmosphere of distant conversations from other tables.
The lunch service was managed by a single gentleman who was dressed in traditional smart dinner clothes. He was exceptionally friendly and even took a photo of my partner and I in the ballroom.
Once seated a complimentary basket of rye and smoked bread with olives and garnishes were provided. The olives were some of the tastiest I have eaten and went down very easily with a wheat beer from the drinks menu.
There is a lunch menu and mains al a carte menu to choose your food from. There is a good range of meals at prices from <€9.00 to almost €30.00 per dish. There are vegetarian friendly options. The food provided ranges from rustic pizza to classic german meals.
Once ordered the food came promptly and was of a high quality. The portions are large (especially for meat dishes off of the main al a carte menu). I was very satisfied after my meal and it put me in good stead to spend the rest of the afternoon exploring the area.
Unfortunately the toilets are rather dirty and very cold. If this was amended I believe this restaurant would offer a perfect quirky lunch.
