ManAboutWorld Global Correspondents Niazi Rubez and Marcio Chapman ate and sipped their way across Berlin. Here are their favorite restaurants.
A typical grastropub: cozy, the atmosphere is relaxed. Patrons greet the waitress by her name. The menu is based on Austrian food. The wine selection is small, focused in Austria and Germany. Wines by the glass are a good and reliable option.
Motzstrasse 10-10777 – Schöneberg
Café des Artistes
Restaurant, winebar and art gallery. As the name suggests the focus is French cuisine. Tasteful decor, silverware, linen table ware give a certain air of refinement. The service is very friendly. The Wine Bar is perfect.
Fuggerstrasse 35-10777 – Schöneberg
One of the pioneers of Vietnamese restaurants Berlin. With success came the hordes of tourists. But still cheap and with a beautiful and young crowd. The menu changes every day. The wine selection is compact but efficient.
Alte Schonhauser Strasse 46 – Mitte
A friendly neighborhood restaurant in Schöneberg to eat the most traditional dish from Germany without falling into the chain stores that are all over the city. Good price, clean, and easy access. Great for lunch after shopping. Fast food socially responsible.
Maassenstrasse 2-10777 – Schöneberg
The chef Stefan Hartmann’s restaurant is sober and elegant, where he creates a fusion of French and German cuisines. The result is quite satisfactory. Good service. A pleasant surprise. Great wine list. Highlight for Austrian wines.
