Restaurants in Berlin

Berlin may not loom large on the foodie world map, but it packs a punch with a huge variety of great value dining. 

The Berlin restaurants below have been grouped into three categories:
Expensive (over €50)
Moderate (€25 to €50)
Cheap (up to €25)
These Berlin restaurant prices are for a three-course meal for one, including half a bottle of house wine or equivalent, tax and service. Only a small percentage of German restaurants accept credit cards (as opposed to debit cards, which are nearly always accepted). Prices usually include 16% VAT. Normally, a tip between 5 and 10% is expected for good service.




Cuisine: French/German

This sophisticated restaurant is located near the pretty Gendarmenmarkt and dates back to the mid-19th century. The cuisine is French-influenced and the menu changes daily, with lots of meaty options such as calf's liver in calvados sauce, as well as the signature dish of Wiener Schnitzel. Open daily, booking recommended.

Address: , Französische Strasse 47, Berlin, 10117
Telephone: +49 30 8188 6262

Restaurant Tim Raue

Cuisine: Asian

The eponymous chef works wonders with Asian dishes at this double Michelin-starred establishment. It's unconventional – and expensive – but the quality of cooking and the balance of flavours are excellent.

Address: , Rudi Dutschke Strasse 26, Berlin, 10969
Telephone: +49 30 2593 7930


Cuisine: Fine dining

Overseen by Michelin-starred chef Marco Müller, this upscale fine dining restaurant offers different tasting menus and the emphasis is on inventive use of ingredients such as pigeon and Baltic salmon. There's also an à la carte menu, not to mention a 900-strong wine list.

Address: , Chausseestrasse 8, Berlin, 10115
Telephone: +49 30 2462 8760


Monsieur Vuong

Cuisine: Vietnamese

The runaway success of this Berlin institution shows no signs of waning. It's a good-value Vietnamese restaurant right at the heart of Mitte's best shopping district. It gets busy, but service is brisk, and you'll generally get a table if you're happy to wait for a few minutes. The creative dishes take in various Asian cuisines, with cold Saigon beer available to wash them down.

Address: , Alte Schönhauser Strasse 46, Berlin, 10119
Telephone: +49 30 9929 6924

Zur Letzten Instanz

Cuisine: German

The oldest restaurant in Berlin, this restaurant has been serving classic German dishes since 1621 and its rendition of Konigsberger Klopse (Meatballs) is delightful. It also has a good selection of German beer.

Address: , Waisenstraße 14-16, Berlin,


Adana Grillhaus

Cuisine: Turkish

Located within Kreuzberg and amid Turkish shops and cafes, Adana Grillhaus is the place for Doner Kebab, a tantalising combo of grilled meat stuffed inside fluffy Turkish bread.

Address: , Manteuffelstraße 86, Berlin,

Curry 36

Cuisine: German

Currywurst (pork sausage with a sprinkling of curry powder) is Berlin's most iconic street food and Curry 36 is arguably the best place to try it. There are a few outlets across the city, at the Zoo station, Mehringdamm and Central Station, all of them are packed.

Address: , Europaplatz 1 , Berlin, 10557


Cuisine: Vegetarian, Vegan

This vegan-friendly restaurant is best known for its organic dumplings, which some claim it's the best in Berlin.

Address: , Chausseestraße 2, Berlin, 10115


Cuisine: Baked potatoes

The strapline – Finest Baked Potatoes – says it all. A super-affordable option with more-than-generous portion sizes, Patta serves up enormous baked spuds loaded with different fillings. Take your pick from twenty different toppings, from feta cheese and grilled vegetables to chicken and jalapenos. Various teas are also available.

Address: , Krossener Strasse 16, Berlin, 10245

Featured Hotels


Soho House Berlin

Part of the Soho House empire, this private club and boutique hotel is based in Mitte, east Berlin's achingly hip heart. The 40 bedrooms vary enormously in price and layout, but all include vintage furniture and quirky features such as record players. Bring your swimmers for the glamorous rooftop pool.

Honigmond Berlin-Mitte

This gem of a hotel is a real find - the building's exterior doesn't suggest its gorgeous combination of period features and swish modernity. The rooms have antiques scattered throughout, and the breakfast is excellent. There's a second property too on a nearby street, in much the same style.

Ritz-Carlton Berlin

Expect the full whistles and bells of an international five-star chain hotel at this sumptuous 300-room property on Potsdamer Platz. Notable features include four restaurants and bars, among them the Tea Lounge, known for its ceremonial afternoon teas. Underground parking is another perk.


The prices vary enormously here at this retro showcase for the garish/fabulous interior design of the former East Germany. Part hotel and part museum, this is definitely one of Berlin's more idiosyncratic places to stay; prepare for lots of brown and orange. It's also a stone's throw from techno temple Berghain and the adjacent attractions of hipster Friedrichshain.


Based in a one-time vacuum cleaner factory, this wonderfully eccentric "hut palace" offers colourful accommodation in a range of indoor vintage caravans and repurposed huts. Standard rooms are on offer too – they give more space but they're not nearly so much fun. The backyard has been transformed into a wild garden.

Das Stue

Billed as Berlin's first luxury boutique hotel, the none-more-cool Das Stue sits on the southwestern fringe of the Tiergarten park. It's full of grand design touches, while the rooms themselves are modern with hardwood floors. The hotel also plays home to a spa and, in Cinco by Paco Pérez, a Michelin-starred restaurant.
