Ora Wine Bar & Restaurant is located on Oranienplatz in the heart of Kreuzberg, Berlin. The space used to be a pharmacy from the 1860's, Oranien Apotheke, and you can still see the lettering on the facade. In May 2020, after the first german lockdown, Ora launched a project that has become one of Berlin's most exciting dining experiences. The menu is changing daily and is always created from freshly produce that is traceable. It is a minimalist cuisine, café-style with flair, unpretentious and thoroughly contemporary European. The décor includes a green leather couch and bottles from the old p...

The Kurpfalz Weinstuben in Berlin at Adenauer Platz have been around for over 80 years, not least thanks to their consistently traditional orientation. After the Second World War, they were a popular meeting place for the stars of old West Berlin. In 1975 Rainer P. S. Schulz, restaurateur from Hamburg, took over the place for 30 years and ran it like a “Village from the Pfalz in Berlin” with a passion for wine. Since 2015, Vincenzo Berényi, a trained sommelier but above all a real innkeeper, continues and expands the vinophile passion. This is the way we love it as guests!

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!

When you mention Pfefferberg to someone from Berlin, all you will get is a surprised look. The hidden area between Senefelder and Teutoberger Platz is unknown to many Berliners. One possible reason: Most of the restaurants that are or were based here tended to appeal to tourists. But that has changed in the past few months. Kink is both a bar and a restaurant and could easily be placed in NYC! The first thing you notice when you walk towards Kink is the imposing bar with its impressive red light installation by Swiss artist Kerim Seiler. I can't stop being amazed by it. The cuisine is full o...

"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...

Tante Fichte is your new contact point in Kreuzberg. The fact that the restaurant opened in the middle of the pandemic is pure coincidence rather than an opportunity to bring something new to an already dense and rich Berlin gastro scene. Not lacking of a concept or ideology, the plates and the interior are more about taste, simplicity and harmony, with an atmosphere in which every guest can feel comfortable, like when visiting your aunt!

Remi is the new restaurant by the friends' Lode van Zuylen and Stijn Remi, located on the glazed ground floor of the Suhrkamp publishing house. With Torstrasse on the left and Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz, the restaurant has a view of the TV tower. The space is open, bright and minimalist, inspired by the grand cafés of the Netherlands, especially Hertogenbosch, where the two friends are from. There are no chandeliers, white napkins, stucco or velvet in the restaurant. Instead, you will find an open kitchen in the centre, exposed concrete, deep red granite, airy curtains and lots of perforated metal...
