Came across this centrally located hidden gem purely by chance. Staff were extremely friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Whether you go for a drink or a meal, it is superb. It is rumoured that it was David Bowie's watering hole !

The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The
gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets
between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given

Vive la France - at the Schiffbauerdamm. Gourmets and fans of the French cuisine are pampered by the Brasserie Ganymed on the highest culinary standards. In former times, Bert Brecht and Helene Weigel stopped here to enjoy the cooking and the authentic Parisian air. The dishes are prepared with fresh, regional products and special French delicacies; the waiters celebrate flambeing, carving and filleting in front of the guests. On hot days and warm summer nights, be sure to secure a place on the Spree Terrace. All dishes are prepared with an extent of care and we can guarantee the vast variety of wines. Well trained waiting staff are always there to help or recommend best food and wine to accomodate your taste pallets. We always try to impress our guests with different menu each day. Our chefs daily create special lunch menu (served 12AM - 4PM) and dinner menu (served 5:30PM - 11PM) in order for our loyal customers and tourists to try something new each day.
