small old neighborhood gaststaette, harkening back to the d.d.r. days. good pils on tap, food is basic - very. not gourmet, but a good way to see "how it was". worth a visit for at least one meal, and a nice change from the fake modern of many eating places nowadays. easy to get to from city center, about 10...

I was brought to this during a visit with colleagues and the restaurant lived up to expectations. Truly authentic setting and great food. I had the grillhaxe with potatoes and sauerkraut.

I have been to many German restaurants but something was different about this place. May be because of the history and events attached to the GDR Times. Nice place to chat with friends, enjoy some beers and authentic German food and also suitable for the wallet.

The food is not only great but cheap... More

Almost everything (I say "almost" because the beer pull taps are pretty modern : ) ) is from the 1970s and 1980s, from the furniture and tablecloths to the food that... More

This is an original and authentically old DDR or GDR Restaurant with its food and furnitures, even those guys are running it and most of the customers as well. Just recommended for those who wants to get a touch of old and dusty stuff.
