This article is a list of restaurants in Berlin where you can try the local cuisine or have a beer. In the first part of the review I will write reviews about the establishments I visited, in the second part – good establishments that I found while preparing for the trip, but did not manage to visit.
Since we went to Berlin in December, to Christmas markets, we often had a snack right at the markets: sausages, steaks, schnitzels, mulled wine ( more about Berlin Christmas markets ). Therefore, the list of restaurants visited is small: just 6. For each I wrote the address, price for lunch / dinner, prices for beer and dishes, as well as my impressions.
Berlin restaurants on the map
Noted the restaurants mentioned in the article on the interactive map.
Where to eat in Berlin: my reviews and recommendations.
№1. Zum Schusterjungen, Danziger Str. 9.
Restaurant near the hotel where we stayed (about 10 minutes). Traditional German restaurant. There are many visitors, it is better to book a table. We arrived on Saturday evening, all the seats were taken, but we were met, offered to sit down with other visitors at a large table (this is normal in Germany) with a time limit of 1.5 hours. The staff is very friendly, speak English. There is a menu in English. Open daily from 12:00 to 0:00.
Draft beer: 2.50 € (for 0.33l) – 3.50 (for 0.5l);
Bottle beer: 4 € for 0,5l.
Schnitzel 11.60 euros
Goulash 12.60 euros
The bill for dinner – 37 euros.
№2. Curry Baude, Badstraße 1-5.
Snack bar (kiosk) with traditional curry sausages. Our guide brought us to this kiosk near the Gesundbrunnen train station during the tour. These kurrivurst are considered almost the best in the city. The owner often serves visitors himself, and that says a lot.
Different people come to this diner, someone even reads books (let me remind you, the month of December!)
The cost of two sausages is 3.15 euros. It works daily, on weekdays from 6:00 to 0:00, on weekends – from 9:00.
№3. Eschenbräu Brewery, Triftstraße 67
A real German brewery in a very non-tourist area. Located near the Wedding metro station, in the Turkish area. They also visited during the excursion “Delicious Berlin”. She specifically clarified with the guide whether the area is safe, according to the guide “the second most insecure in Berlin.”
The brewery is interesting in that you can see the real life of Berliners, like German old men, and German families (yes, they come even with children) spend evenings.
This bar even has its places for regular customers, they are marked with a sign.
The cost of beer is the lowest in the city: 3 euros for 0.5l.
They don’t serve food, you can only order snacks or bring a snack with you (this is allowed in this place).
The institution officially opens at 17:00 (open until 00: 00-1: 00), but regular customers (including our guide) are launched at 16:45.
№4. Altberliner Weißbierstube, Rathausstraße 21
This restaurant is located in the center, next to the Red Town Hall and St. Nicholas Cathedral. Do not confuse with the restaurant at number 6, the names are similar.
We accidentally got into this restaurant when we were looking for where to dine before an excursion to the Reichstag . All the institutions around were simply crowded and did not pay attention to us anywhere. We went into one or another restaurant, looked around, waited for us to be told something by the availability of tables, and, without waiting, left. Here, they immediately approached us and found for us a small table for two.
Beer: 2.90 euros for 0.3l.
Goulashsup: 6.20 euros
Kartofelsup: 5.80 euros.
Bill for lunch: 18 euros.
I can’t say that this restaurant is the restaurant of my dreams, and the prices are not the cheapest, but in extreme cases you can bookmark it, and for lack of another option, have lunch here.
№5. Haus der 100 Biere, Wilmersdorfer Str. 98-100
In guidebooks and reviews you can find information about another branch of this restaurant (on the Kurfürstendamm Strasse), but we got into this, therefore, I will write about it.
Restaurant with typical German cuisine (delicious, huge portions) and a large selection of beer. As the name suggests, the beer list contains 100 types of beer from around the world (even there is the Baltic) + about 5 local varieties for bottling. There are also special offers for seasonal beer.
The staff is quite neutral, just does its job (menu – food – bill).
Lunch bill (2 soups + baked cheese with salad + 3 beers) 29 euros.
№6. Altberliner Restaurant, Fürstenberger Str. 1
The restaurant we went to twice. In fact, such restaurants (where we go more than 1 time) are counted on the fingers. This establishment is located about 5-7 minutes walk from the H + Hotel , where we lived, a signboard was hanging on the main street, we decided to go try it. In fact, it turned out to be a very cozy, real German family restaurant. It seems that 3 generations of the same family are working here. The food is very tasty (beer is mediocre, but you can close your eyes to it) the service is pleasant, homely. Everyone except the older generation speaks English; young people generally calmly communicate.
- Beer: 2.70 euros (per 0.3l) – 4.10 euros (per 0.5l)
- Schnitzel: about 12 euros (on a special offer – 8.5 euros; in fact, there were 2 huge pieces!)
- Baked Camembert with Salad: 6.80 Euro
- Braised Beef: € 15.50
- Strudel 5.50
- Cappuccino 2,250
- Bill for the first dinner 23.40
The bill for the second dinner is 32 euros (one meat dish for two, one strudel, 2 beers and cappuccino)
The work schedule is from 17:00 to 23:00, on Wednesday and Saturday also works from 12:00 to 16:00.
If you choose a hotel in the area, be sure to go here!
