Berlin Restaurants Guide

.

Berlin is a city awash with international cuisine. If you are ‘cold calling’ one of the best areas to head for is Charlottenburg on the west side of the city which has a very rich night life. Particularly good restaurants to travel to are:.

.

Mustafas Gemuse Kebabs, Mehringdamm 32, 10961 Fans of Turkish Kebabs should look no further than Mustafa’s for a taste sensation. The doner meat served here is tender and succulent and the accompanying vegetables and hot bread is exquisitely cooked. Most customers recommend the Chicken Gemuse Kebab but you can’t go too far wrong with any kebab that you order here. Not only is it a memorable culinary experience but you  will be pleased to hear that a large doner kebab should cost around a mere 4 Euros. The only downside to Mustafa’s is the long and arduous queuing to obtain your food but it is well worth the wait.  Opening times are Monday to Sunday 8 am to 12 am. http://mustafas.de/

Dolores, 7 Rosa-Luxemburg-Strasse, 10178  Dolores is arguably the best Mexican eatery in the City. Their traditional, authentic fare is cheap but that’s not reflected in the undoubted quality of their food. They specialise in Burritos but you can also order Taco’s and Vegans/Veggies will be pleased to know that their are plenty of tasty options on offer for them as well. The place is very popular and so can get a little cramped to the annoyance of a select few who have dined here. A huge Burrito will cost you just 5 Euros which is an astonishing bargain considering the quality.  Opening hours are Mon-Sat 11.30 am -10 pm and Sunday 1- 10 pm.http://www.dolores-online.de/http://www.dolores-online.de/

Restaurant Reinstoff, Schlegelstrasse 26, Edison Hofe 10115 Reinstoff is one of the most imaginative and relaxed dining experiences you are ever likely to encounter. The dishes are creative and colourful which is highlighted by their odd yet delectable Black sesame Ice Cream. You can enjoy a great selection of wine in this chilled out environment and their Foie Gras is arguably the best in the City. A few customers commented that the whole meal ended up taking too long at an estimated 4 hours. There were also a select few who felt the service they received was a little abrupt. Reinstoff is by no means inexpensive and I would  advise those watching the old purse strings to avoid coming here.http://www.reinstoff.eu/willkommen.html

Their Creme Brulee is one of the finest desserts you are likely to sample in the city.

First Floor at the Hotel Palace, Budapester St. 42 (Tel: 2502 1020) is very high class French restaurant. It is surprising to find a restaurant of this calibre in a hotel environment and even more pleasing is the choice of Red wine which runs into hundreds.

The Engelbecken at Witzlebenstr. 31 (Tel: 615 280) is another high class restaurant – this one specialises in German dishes that are often found in the Alpine and Bavarian regions. The veal lamb and Goulash are exceptional.

The Dressler at Kurfurstendamm 208 (Tel: 883 3530) offers extremely good German food. The duck with red cabbage is simply delicious.The menu seems to vary slightly depending on the time of year making it a very dependable place to eat.

If you are on a flying visit to Berlin try the highly regarded Grossbeerenkeller at Grossbeeren Sr. 90 (Tel: 251 3064). Though it does not accept credit cards it renders a very attentive and proffesional service. The food is typical German and extremely good. The boiled salt-pork meat, Nurnberger sausages and cabbage are a must and the fried potatoes!
