Restaurants and Bars in Berlin


These are a selection of the restaurants I visited in the Kreuzberg area within a 10-15 minute walk of my hotel:

Hamys Cafe

We arrived at the hotel at gone 10pm and fancied a small bite to eat. We saw a Vietnamese cafe literally two mintues down the road and decided to give it a go.

Very chilled out atmosphere – large soup broths and meat and rice with indoor and outdoor seating. A meal for 2 with drinks was a very reasonable 15 Euros! Cheap and cheerful!


Lovely Italian restaurant in Kreuzberg with a wide choice of pizzas and other Italian dishes. Large indoor and outdoor area but it does get rather busy!

We had the salami and vegetarian pizzas – they were huge and very tasty. A meal for 2 with drinks was around 30 Euros.


Fuchs & Elster 

A great find about a 10 minute walk from Hermanplatz. Fuchs & Elster is a cute small restaurant with a tapas styled Spanish / Italian menu.

We had the gnocchi, pasta with vegetables and some gorgeous focaccia bread with dips. We then went downstairs to the cocktail bar with some live music! An absolutely lovely evening and the meal plus a drink was only about 30-35 Euros.


Also, you cannot visit Berlin without trying the currywurst!! I didn’t visit this restaurant but Wirtshaus Hasenheide also comes recommended. This is a currywurst from near the Holocaust Memorial.



I spent most of my weekend in the bars on Weserstraße which is in Neukolln, around 15 minute walk from Hermanplatz where I was staying. It reminded me of East London, hence the attraction! Some of the best ones were:

Ä bar – great chilled out atmosphere in this bar with live acoustic sets and a foosball table. Drinks were very reasonably priced – 2 wines were only 5 Euros.

Tier – slightly more intimate venue than A with low lighting and nice decor. Good cocktail menu.

Kulnkerkranich – huge roof terrace on the roof of Neukolln Arcade! The entrance to the roof is located inside the mall. Chill and drink delicious cocktails and listen to live bands.
