    Located in Neukölln in a former Distillery – Brand Lichtherz – Eins 44 balances an industrial but relaxed atmosphere with professional service and exquisite cuisine.

The essential parts of the distillery has been preserved and can be seen throughout the restaurant! Daniel Achilles is not only the new chef of Eins 44 but a silent genius.

    Otto is a simple restaurant where the food is contemporary but essentially German with a Nordic framework!

    Address: Eisenzahnstraße 66, Berlin

    Opened in 2007 by the family Wu, this Chinese restaurant is located off the “Champs-Elysées” of Berlin – Ku’damm. The restaurant marries sweet & sour, spicy and mild like no other. Made from the freshest products on the market, the food is focused on original recipes from the Chinese regions of Sichuan, Jiangsu and Shanghai. In a typical way, no guest should order the same dish twice and should share his dishes with his party. This “unspoken” rule in the restaurant can also be explained by their motto – Man Man Chi – which means eat slowly and enjoy your time!

    "Reduced to the essentials" is the concept of Faelt. But if you think that you will be served small plates and serious product patronage, you are wrong! Chef and owner Björn Swanson plates seductive aromas with humour. Björn is well-known in the Berlin Gastro scene, receiving his first Michelin Star at Golvet in Tiergarten before opening this place in October 2020 – just before the second lockdown – and in time to receive a new Michelin Star in March 2021! The name, Faelt, emphasizes Swanson's Swedish family roots and means field. At the same time, it is a reference to the chef's sustainable p...

    A small oasis of freshness in the heart of Neukölln – Barra is a lovely restaurant serving a very seasonal menu composed of small sharing dishes. The menu changes daily, due to the season and the quality of the produce; ”If it smells or looks funny, don't cook it!” is the kitchen's simple philosophy. The restaurant is minimalist but refined, and you would not believe me if I told you that the place opened in November 2018. Please book in advance as it's quite often fully booked. Another benefit of this restaurant is that when you sit and dine at the bar, you have the feeling that you are right...
