We ate here the first night we arrived in Berlin. It is very close to the Grand Hyatt and right on Potsdamer Platz. We were exhausted from our long trip and didn't want to walk too far. The menu had a good variety of pastas...More

Being Italian, I tend to avoid Italian restaurants abroad. Saying that, my husband is British and has developed a taste for Italian food, I let him decide on holiday where to go, as long as he is paying! We were on a short break in...More

Seems to cater to a lot of business people. Excellent wine selection. Attentive service. Its been a couple of weeks and I'm sorry to say I don't remember what we had but it was good. We would definitely go again. Recommend reservations,

Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through
the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which
lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood.
Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city:
upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades
and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone
streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through
little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop
