The 7 Best Restaurants in East Berlin

Picture of Megan King
Updated: 30 August 2017
Once a wasteland of austere communist rule, East Berlin has since flourished with thriving businesses, a rule-breaking art scene and a host of incredible places to eat. If you’re serious about great food and memorable dining experiences, then this list will have you smacking your lips and calling for a reservation in no time.

Schneeweiß

Restaurant, Northern European, $$$
Save to wishlist

Schneeweiß offers patrons delicious Alpine cuisine to be enjoyed in a fresh, white-walled and epically stylish environment. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the schnitzel is rumoured to be one of the best in town. Crystal lamps add a hint of glam to the dining ambience, while a pint of craft beer keeps things relaxed and cosy. It’s probably wise to book a table during peak times.

Reinstoff

Restaurant, European, $$$
Save to wishlist

For a creative culinary experience, head to Reinstoff in Mitte for a dish prepared by acclaimed chef Daniel Achilles. Besides the food, the setting is quite something too, as guests are invited to be wined and dined in a re-purposed light factory. This two Michelin-starred experience will cost you a pretty penny, but the subtle flavours and innovative food pairings ensure you won’t be disappointed.

Zenkichi brings the best of Japan to Berlin. Try out their eight-course summer tasting menu or go for the Omakase Sake Pairing menu to tantalise the senses. Seasonal, small plates are served in intimate semi-private booths set among gorgeous bamboo detail, making your experience really all about the food and your dining companions, as well as the best sake in town.

MaoThai

Restaurant, Thai, $$$
Save to wishlist

After the Berlin Wall came down, MaoThai was the very first Asian restaurant to open up in the former East Berlin. It’s bursting with authentic and colourful Thai flavours; from the delicious green curry to the supreme crispy duck. Match the carefully thought-out flavours with a high quality wine from their menu. The atmosphere is relaxed and unpretentious and the staff are full of friendly smiles.

Couldn't believe the best fine Thai is in Germany 😱😋😋👍🏼

Restaurant Pasternak

Restaurant, Russian, $$$
Save to wishlist

Restaurant Pasternak is a charming Russo-Jewish dining room boasting chandeliers and a piano that both add a hint of old-world flair to this venue. Despite the light fixtures, the place is humble, like a grandmother’s house. Enjoy food and drinks on the beautiful outdoor terrace, or visit on Sundays when they do a really delicious brunch (but get in early!).
