10 best restaurants in Berlin
In terms of the number of attractions, Berlin overtook all German cities. Local gastronomic establishments are also not far behind – their abundance and diversity confuse travelers.
All the best restaurants in Berlin are distinguished by decent national cuisine, original interiors, quality of service and, of course, reviews from grateful customers. Special attention is traditionally attracted to the institutions marked by the Michelin guide – unusual, stylish, memorable. Based on these criteria, we bring to your attention the TOP-10 of the main restaurants in the German capital. Capt´n Schillow The original restaurant in Berlin, in the middle of Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf, invites you to board the old Capt´n Schillow. Another 22 years ago, this centenary ship plowed the expanses of the Spree River. Such celebrities as Freddie Mercury and Michael Jackson have visited his deck. In 1996, the ship made the last trip. Since then, he has welcomed guests on the banks of the Landver Canal. Sitting in comfortable chairs and admiring the riverboats passing by, taste the best creations of the chef made from the freshest fish. And in the cold season, a unique German restaurant greets visitors with a mug of hot mulled wine and a baked Christmas duck. Average bill –20 €.
Marjellchen Great, reasonably priced restaurant in Berlin, great for exploring national German cuisine. For 27 years this cozy place has been delighting visitors with the best culinary creations of Prussia, Pomerania and Silesia. The hostess of the institution, who speaks several languages, burly Ramona Azzaro, leads you to the table, introduces you to the history of her “kingdom” and pours a glass of juniper schnapps. The local chef does not like experimentation and considers it bad form to add new ingredients to classic recipes. Therefore, enjoying the Konigsberg bedbugs or Berlin-style liver, be sure that the same food could decorate the German Kaiser dining table many years ago. The average bill is 15 €.
Zur Haxe The most famous traditional dishes of Germany can be enjoyed in one of the best restaurants in Berlin with national cuisine – Zur Haxe. Here, in the eastern center of the German capital, you will meet the atmosphere of old Munich. Wooden floors creak, round fenders hang from the ceiling, and a cheerful waiter with a large Bavarian beard, dressed in leather trousers, delivers breathtakingly fragrant dishes. Behind the oak tables, German beer pours into the river, which serves the most popular local food prepared according to old recipes. On the menu you will find Obazda cheese snack, Leberkeze meat bread, Nuremberg sausages, baked trout and crispy pork knuckle. Huge portions can be mastered only by true meat lovers. A check for two in a restaurant – 30-60 €.
Zitadellen Schänke Wide rustic tables cave under the weight of giant goblets of wine and plates of pork ham. Apple schnapps is poured into iron ladles. If you have ever imagined yourself a knight or a princess awaiting rescue, welcome to the German restaurant Zitadellen Schänke located in Spandau County. It is located in the courtyard of the old citadel and carries its visitors to the Middle Ages. Under the stone vaults, waiters carry the best culinary samples of national cuisine. A comprehensive menu worth € 49.50 changes every 2 months. Here you can not worry about etiquette – guests do not use appliances at all and eat with their hands! A historic dinner is accompanied by performances by artists, magicians and jugglers.
Restaurant Sphere How to see the most interesting sights of Berlin in the palm of your hand will help a high-class rotating restaurant located in the heart of the Alexanderplatz television tower. Slowly moving, the site makes a complete revolution around its axis in an hour, which gives visitors the opportunity to view the beauties of the German capital from all angles.

Zur letzten Instanz The guest book of the oldest restaurant in Berlin contains entries by Charlie Chaplin, Klara Zetkin, Maxim Gorky, Heinrich Zille and Gerhard Schroeder. Here the most famous people of the city made appointments. For many of us, this legendary German restaurant is familiar with the movie Seventeen Moments of Spring. In 1972, a silent scene of a meeting between Max Otto von Stirlitz and his wife was filmed in a rustic hall. The history of the inn dates back to 1621. Since then, the three-story building near Alexanderplatz has undergone several restorations, while preserving the main thing – the atmosphere of old Berlin and historical scenery. The most famous part of the interior is the tiled stove, next to which Napoleon indulged in culinary delights. You will also appreciate the best German national dishes: pork knuckle with pea puree, ham stuffed eggs and beef rolls. Dinner at the restaurant will cost 25-35 €.
