Dr. Maury is a casual wine bar that opened in Summer 2018 in the popular district Prenzlauer Berg. You will be welcomed to a warm, cosy, and friendly atmosphere by staff who live and breathe wine. The clientele is mostly French–and that means something. It gives me the feeling that Dr. Maury take the time to understand the customer’s wants and needs and provide what they desire.

If you are looking for a place where you can dine and drink in breath-taking views of Berlin, Skykitchen is without fail the cream of the crop. The name clearly holds the promise: you dine on the twelfth floor of the surprisingly well-appointed hotel Vienna House Andel’s Berlin. From every seat you can look out over the cosmopolitan city of Berlin. Super cool–it’s great view, really! The atmosphere of the restaurant is very pleasant, being modern but not over the top.

“There should be good wine bars in the gastronomic metropolis of Berlin like the proverbial sand by the sea. Well, more like amber from the Baltic Sea―I was looking for it in vain recently”. Sylvia Jost from Berliner Zeitung explained it correctly. In recent years, it has been difficult to find a wine bar where you feel welcome, where you are treated as an individual and where you can have time to drink and taste the wine in your glass. Luckily, the Weinlobbyist opened shortly before the pandemic and still thrives thanks to host and owner Serhat Aktas. The setting is perfect too―in the popular...

Ezsra follows a farm- and forest-to-table principle, with an unusual focus on often simple ingredients, regional farming and wild foraging. A menu that changes daily is the answer to hyper- seasonal thinking. You will always find zero waste solutions on the menus. They mainly work with freshwater fish from the region and game from the forests. But when they find invasive species or high population fish from the north sea or very well treated goats, cows or pigs they also work with them. What you don’t know is that Ezsra is in sync with its neighbourhood, Neukölln, being open minded, pure, wil...

Located in Central-Mitte, Frea isn't just another hip restaurant on Torstrasse in Berlin. It’s the world's first zero-waste restaurant that deliberately avoids plastic packaging. The aim is, as far as possible, not to produce any waste. In times when 100 million tons of food are thrown away worldwide every year and the oceans are full of plastic, this is a big challenge for a restaurant that has its own small ecosystem. “For us, zero waste means sustainability. Thinking about what you're doing and knowing the implications of what you're doing. Because it's not just about the packaging, but a...

Where the barbed wire-protected inner Berlin wall used to be, today vines stand sentinel on the terrace. Where in the past the Stasi interrogated East German defectors, you can now clink glasses at the Mauerwinzer with wines from the east and west―in Prenzlauer Berg, a few metres away from Mauerpark. It was the vision, which became reality, of journalist Peter Brock and architect Roland Wolff, who have established a space where their shared passion for wine can flourish.

A true oasis in the middle of Berlin! Up here on the 5th floor of the hotel "The Mandala" you can sit on the small terrace with chestnut trees and a fountain! It belongs to the chic, light and airy roof garden restaurant, in which, thanks to the all-round glazing, you almost feel like you're outdoors. Beautiful bamboo plants provide an Asian touch. But it’s the food that really raises the roof. Chef Michael Kempf takes his inspiration from his home country and as far afield as the Americas and Asia. The creative dishes are full of flavour and aromas, including the great desserts. All this is r...

Richard Restaurant from Swiss Chef Hans Richard is a gem, situated in a somewhat awkward part of Berlin. It is about a five-minute walk from Schlesiches Tor on Köpenicker Strasse in Kreuzberg.

Richard offers French-inspired cuisine à la Ducasse, which tantalises the tastebuds through an unusual combination of well-known and innovative dishes. Hans Richard describes the cuisine of the restaurant as modern and classic. The selection is wel...

Tucked away in a backyard in Mitte district, you will discover a surprisingly spacious restaurant based on the country style Nordic comfort.

During growing time, they get most of their supplies freshly harvested from their farmer in Krielow/Brandenburg. Cookies Cream is ever changing and never the same. Cookies Cream was selected as the best vegetarian restaurant in Berlin by the Guide Michelin in 2018 and has been awarded one star every year since. Nowadays it offers a full vegan...

Address: Kantstraße 79, Berlin
An ex-women’s prison may not scream ‘romance’ but there’s something about Lovis that lends itself to candle-lit dinners for two. Hidden behind a discreet door on Charlottenburg's busy Kantstrasse, a 19th-century courtyard blooming with wildflowers and clambering shrubs leads to a gabled dining room with a canopy of twinkling lights. My friend Sophia Rudolph spent her formative years in Lyon, France’s “official” culinary capital, and went on to work with legend Alain Ducasse, so naturally, her cooking is rooted in classical French technique. However, her four-course, six-course, and a la carte...

In Berlin, it often happens that outward appearances disguise inner values. Neukölln, in particular, knows how to surprise. Back in the days, Neukölln was a completely different place, and one had to be brave to go to Hermannplatz. Today, however, times are different. The interior of Restaurant Merold impresses with its restrained understatement, which is reminiscent of Copenhagen. Jonas Merold has been pursuing his version of a modern restaurant here since November 2021. They offer a somewhat funky wine as well as classics for those not too fond of natural wine. They both taste incredible....

They created a combination of a seasonal and sustainable dinner concept that features a unique and fairly-priced wine list.
