The evening we arrived in Berlin we walked to this restaurant that was at a corner of 2 streets close to our hotel. It was a hot summer night, all tables outside were occupied. But we were seated inside, close to the door and open windows. I was starving for a beer, and my wife had a Chardonnay. I had... More

Everything was outstanding and eye opening and fun. Never has interesting food tasted so good. My only regret is that we had too much good food and didn't have room for desert.

Great cuisine, tasty food with a twist, big portions even for my teenager sons. Worth going. The only minus came from a long wait between the starter and main course.

This is absolutely one of the best restaurants in the Prenzlauer Berg neighborhood of Berlin. Perhaps it's because he is half Lebanese that Basim knows how to take fresh, regional ingredients and turn them into delightful continental meals. His chicken with chanterelle mushrooms is light but satisfying, his shakshuka is wonderful and his pumpkin soup is divine. We've eaten there... More

The corner is as beautiful but not as crowded as the streets around Kollwitz Platz on the other side of Prenzlauer Allee. We went here one warm Friday evening when tables were moved out to the pavement in order to seat all the guests outside. It seemed that waitresses were more busy than usual but they coped reasonably well and... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Prenzlauer Berg
No Berlin neighbourhood has undergone a greater change than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays, thousands turn the park next to remnants of the wall into a playground for street artists, musicians, and flea market shoppers. This attracts young urban families who enjoy the balance of big city life and small-town comfort. Meanwhile, trendy, young, upper-class visitors from all over the world are attracted to the local high-end shops, cafés, and sophisticated bars and restaurants. The merits of this transformation are a favorite topic of debate around the city, but it makes for some of the best people-watching Berlin has to offer.
