Rutz is really an institution in Berlin. It was founded in 2001 and is still alive and kicking, which is a statement in itself! Lasting that long in the cruel world of gastronomy and still being in the foreground of the industry is remarkable. As you enter Rutz, you will find yourself in their wine bar. Here in this cosy ambience, you can order small sharing dishes to go with a glass of wine, or a bottle. If you feel adventurous, take the onyx stairs to their three Michelin star restaurant where your culinary trip can carry on!

Restaurant Tim Raue has set the bar very high in culinary Berlin. This two-Michelin star restaurant has been amongst the best in the world since it opened in 2010 and still seek for excellence on a daily basis. The Asian-inspired cuisine mixes Thai aromas, Japanese art and Chinese multi-cultured philosophy. What’s also remarkable is that the entire menu is lactose-free and that those who are vegan can enjoy a whole menu free of animal products! By the way, did you know that Tim Raue is the only German Chef featured in the Netflix series “Chef’s Table”?

Austrian Wine List of the Year Germany, presented by Austrian wine 2021
A wonderful place nestled by the busy Kreuzberg canal. Sebastian Frank, named Best Chef in Europe 2018, has a very unique approach to his kitchen: He is Austrian and is cooking with his childhood memories! He and his team take on traditional Austrian recipes – he goes as far back as the Austro-Hungarian Empire – and brings those memories to the modern age. For Sebastian, vegetables are equal to meat and fish but be aware; this is not a vegetarian restaurant!

Over the years, this former kebab stand in the heart of Berlin has developed into probably the smallest restaurant with a Michelin star in Germany. Since 2012, they are offering a relaxed, modern fine dining concept – in 2016 awarded with one star in the Michelin Guide and 16 points by Gault & Millau. The young and ambitious team serves only up to 18 guests at the time with their French-oriented cuisine, so please make sure to book in advance. The restaurant bears the name of a small harbour town in the south of France, named after the famous wine region Bandol in the south of Provence. Arti...

When Cordobar opened its doors in 2013, Berlin only had a couple of wine bars to offer. After five years of leading the way in the wine bar scene, Cordobar became Cordo – a restaurant. Same location, same atmosphere but a different concept. The restaurant has now left the sharing concept that it started with, and is instead offering a five-course and an eight-course menu, with a wine selection that is unique to Berlin.

Grand Prix Germany, presented by Austrian Wine 2021
All this restaurant's produces come from the area of Berlin and its neighbouring regions; If it does not grow around here, it won't be on your plate. That is the simple philosophy for this venue, one of the best addresses in Berlin. You will either have a seat at the long table by the kitchen or, if you're a group, at your own long table with the host himself. Once inside, you will forget that you are indeed a few steps away from Checkpoint Charlie. Please reserve your seat well in advance!

Address: Potsdamer Straße 102, Berlin
Between old and new, East and West, shabby and chic (this is Berlin!), Irma la Douce is the pure enjoyment of French-inspired cuisine. Located on Potsdamer Straße, a Berlin institution with a lot of history, the whole world collides here: Art galleries and designer boutiques exist alongside huge Turkish supermarkets and upscale restaurants. After all, Potsdamer Straße, with its many facets, has been an old Berlin centre for entertainment and nightlife for decades. This place is all about ’joie de vivre’ and enjoyment, with French roots (I should know this, me being French after all). Irma la...

Short Wine List of the Year Germany 2021
Golvet is a one-of-a-kind place in Berlin, located in one of the best venues in Berlin (an old and very famous nightclub). Golvet is a serious contradiction, fitting extremely well in Berlin – the food and service is neither casual nor fine dining; it is personal, it is regional yet European, classical French with an American dialect! The executive Chef Jonas Zörner took over from Björn Swanson in 2020. As our Scandinavian readers will realise, the name is very Swedish – just the name of the restaurant. Golvet means ”the floor” – and it is situated on the 8th floor, overlooking Berlin's Tie...

Raised in Tel Aviv, Gal Ben Moshe has been familiar with the flavours of the Levant since childhood. Inspired by an Islamic scholar friend, Gal also explored the lost traditions of medieval cuisine in these regions. But Prism draws its inspiration not only from the Levant or from the extended Middle Eastern region, but also Central European and Scandinavian cuisine when it leads to meaningful culinary contexts. The mix of strong spices in contrast with harmonious tastes, is one thing that makes Prism unique in Berlin. For Gal, reinventing Middle Eastern cuisine also means rediscovering ingre...

In 2015, Head Chef Maximilian Strohe and his language-loving partner Ilona Scholl took over this venue, that used to house a classic French bistro, and spiced things up a few steps. When you walk through the door, you’re greeted by Ilona Scholl and her all-female service team, dressed to match the leafy pattern on the wall behind them. A nice touch, and so is your name charcoaled on the plain wood of your table and printed out on your menu. It’s a sparse but cosy space, rustic wood and old tiles oozing bygone Alpine holidays. In many ways, what has become Tulus Lotrek’s visual signature epi...

"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...
