The best restaurants in Berlin

OraniumAs one of the most exciting cities in Europe, Berlin has a lot of variety and luxury to offer any traveller. Most European or intercontinential visitors will find that Germany‘s capital is very decently priced in comparison to many other cosmopolitan cities. Therefore, anyone can experience real luxury in the sultry evenings of Berlin, sipping sekt from sparkling snifters. If you feel like you want a real taste of the Berlin posh lifestyle, wander into the infamous Kaufhaus des Westens, where you not only can savour a nice glass of Riesling and shop for fabulous dresses, but where you ought to give the oyster bar a try. Take a break from the hustle and bustle in the middle of hoity toity shoppers on a supreme spree and slurp on the sea’s own aphrodisiac. At the end of a long day of roaming through the streets of Berlin’s varied districts, you can choose to go for a posh dinner in Mitte at the popular Asian tapas restaurant Transit or pop into the famous and colourful Monsieur Vuong for a fresh Vietnamese dish. If you are looking for a restaurant with an extensive German menu, you should try the cosy Oranium on the lively Oranienburgerstraße. Or take the U-Bahn up to the family-friendly Prenzlauer Berg for a nibble at the atmospheric Spanish Tres Tapas restaurant, sashay into Sasaya for an  authentic sushi meal or cosy up in the classical German restaurant Oderquelle. If you like a bit more modern and hipster neighbourhoods, you should eat some real rugged Russian food at Datscha in Friedrichshain, try some sushi at Le Coq d’Or on the Boxhagener Straße or pop into Green Rice in Kreuzberg for a scrumptious quick bite of noodles. Do not forget to hit the nightlife after your filled tummy has calmed down. Parade through Potsdamer Platz for a posh evening (Adagio, 40seconds) or hop along Oranienstraße for an spicy dance and twirl (Cake, SO36). Roos Brekelmans is the author of Good Food In Berlin.

  1. Or try some “real” Berlin Food like the “Gemüseburger” Kebap at U-Bahnhof Mehringdamm or the “Curry 36” a few meters away also at Mehringdamm. :-)

  2. Berlin has some wonderful places to eat, it’s amazing to think just how much this German city has changed in the last 25 years. There are still a number of places to eat that date back to the cold war, but these are fast disappearing.

  3. I would also recommend Don Sushi in Friedrichshain. Their sushi is sooo tasty and they are so attentive and friendly. From 3pm onwards (I think) they have Happy Hour so many dishes are half price :)
