I had heard so many good stuffs about Salut! in Schöneberg that I had to go see it for myself. The place is really nice, very original and cozy decoration, very friendly staff. The menu is really original, I had the March cocktail without the chick peas and it was delicious! Very refreshing. They also can make about anything you might want, I had a Cosmopolitan after that, they nailed it of course. The only bad thing is that it’s a smoking bar and you tend to smell it a lot.
Pan Amb Oli is a nice Mallorcan tapas place in Prenzlauer Berg. I went there on the recommandations of a friend. It’s a nice cosy place, very friendly staff and relatevely quick service. The menu is very appealling and hard to choose from. I had some serrano ham, potatoe gratin with manchego, salami cooked in whine and patatas bravas. All was very tasty, but very small portion (yes I know it’s tapas it’s supposed to be small) for the price. But still a very nice experience.
I recently went to visit my family in Eastern France and we spent one morning in the thermal and leisure center in Amnéville, quite close to Metz. After some time in the thermal pool, I went for lunch with my parents at Le Chalet, the rustical restaurant of the snowhall, an indoor ski piste. They specialize in cheese and mountain food. Raclette and fondues look good but I had a tartiflette (potatoe gratin with tasty mountain cheese) which was quite good and comes with nice cold cuts. My mum had the morteau sausage on a crozet gratin (savoy pastas with reblochon cheese), the sausage was a bit dry on the outside but otherwise all was good. My dad had the piece of pork leg with munster sauce and enjoyed it a lot.
Service was good. Very friendly staff. Good prices. A nice option in this touristic area.
Shortly before Christmas, I discovered a new burger place in Berlin, Street Angels, close to Helmholplatz in P-Berg, well they don’t specialize only in burgers but that was the main reason of our visit.
A friend of mine had a Groupon for this place and we went to try their burger. Service is good, very friendly staff. Food is good, burger meat was a bit too cooked to my taste, I like it more medium rare and it was a bit over medium, so next time I’ll have to ask extra I guess. The cheese was very tasty in the burger, good fries.
Restaurani Tbilisi is a Georgian restaurant in Prenzlauer Berg that I discovered a couple of weeks ago.
This was my very first time in a Georgian restaurant, so it was a very nice discovery.
The staff is super friendly but unfortunately the service was really chaotic, barely profesional. First, they had forgotten about our reservation, they still managed to find us a table and extra chairs, so we could all seat and enjoy.
There were lots of mix-ups with the orders, some plates got put on the table without any word, some dishes we did not order were brought to the table and the time some got their food, some of us had already finished. But at least it was entertaining.
About the food, this was to the contrary very professionnal, the cooks do know what they’re doing. I first had the small chachapuris, crispy dumplings with Georgian cheese, simple but very tasty. Everyone liked their starters, the other kind of chachapuri with cheese and egg, the soup, the chicken salat, the aubergines,… For main, I had the mzwadi, marinated meat cooked on a spike, I got the chicken and it was excellent, the chicken was tasty, tender, barely needed a knife to cut it and it was not dry, I was really deligthed. Others got the same with salmon or lamb and all liked it.
I would def go back, mainly for the food, the staff was still very friendly, just a chaotic service, no rudeness or such, so it’s still a positive experience for me.
Café Seeblick is a cozy café and restaurant in Prenzlauer Berg close to Kollwitzplatz. I went there in a business yet relaxed context, we were a big group and everything went smoothly. The staff is extremely friendly, the service was quite quick considering our number, I had some käsespätzle and they were really tasty, no one complained about their food. Drinks were good as well, great athmosphere. Really nice place, just vegetarians will have a restricted choice.
I recently went a lot for diner and drinks to Schöneberg, and another place I discovered is Due Emigranti, a great Italian restaurant close to U Eisenacher Str.
This is a really nice place and sounds authentic, they serve lots of Sardinian specialty which I was happy about since I loved the food when visiting the island. The staff is Italian, super friendly, the menu is hard to choose from. We all had pasta, I had the Sardinian gnocchi with Sardinian saussage, tomatoe sauce and pecorino, absolutely delicious, the gnocchi look like worms but they’re not 😀 The carpaccio was also a hit. My friends had the ravioli, one with the cinammon-tomatoe sauce and was happy. Another one had the mixed starter plate, it’s huge, either to share or as a main. None of us tried the pizza, but seeing them on other tables they looked and smelled pretty nice. Prices are ok, excellent place.
