Add your picks please… 4 days traveling with 4 kids is not the ideal way to test out a wide variety of restaurants… still, we hit some good ones. The Focaccia place is still my favorite. Such a great local find! Basically, where ever you are, you will never starve in Berlin. There are restaurants in all price ranges pretty much everywhere. And a ton of “American” places in prominent places and even in the larger Ubahn stations.
Pariser Platz 3-5
* So conveniently located near the Brandenburg Gate. A quick treat on a hot day and you can get a cute souvenier Starbucks mug there with the Berlin bear on it.
*Reliable. In the building under the huge radio tower. Open until 9.
Poststrasse 13-14; Nikolaiviertel
*Delicious italian food, resonable prices, wide variety on the menu. Kid pizza for only 1Euro. Huge portions. Great location near the Nikolaikirche.
*Yep, it’s good ol’ American style KFC. Decent food. Great for the kiddos. In the open space just next to the Kaiser Wilhem church. There’s a lot of outdoor area there to sit and enjoy the sun if it’s shining.
Le Buffet – Food Court on the top floor
*Amazing, delicious, great, great food. All there ready to eat. It’s a buffet. So you grab what you want and pay by weight on things like salads and pastas. VERY pricey. Not a place for a bargain, but if you’re there and you need something fast, it is good and quick and easy.
The Berlin Zoo
Oraniumburger Strasse 33
* Delicious food, good service, beautiful place. Right on the corner across from the old post office and on the same block as the Neue Synagogue. Yum. Had the Flamkuchen – thin like a tortilla almost. The gyros one is excellent. The sandwiches and salads were great too! Ubahn (U6) purple line exit Oranienburger Tor just one stop from Friedrickstrasse.
North: – Brunnenstrasse/Torstrasse: Not touristy, but local and beautiful. A nice green area, a lot of art galleries on Brunnenstrasse, a huge park with a wine bar/restaurant in the center where a vineyard once stood, and great shopping. A fun area to roam if time allows.
Fehrbelliner Strasse 24
*Delicious!!! What a treat! Delicious focaccia pizzas for only 1.50 a slice. Choose from at least 8 flavors and they’ll heat up your slices and bring them on a nice wooden board. I could have eaten here every day. Friendly people, beautiful place, and right across from a huge playground and large park (Volkspark am Weinberg), so the kids will be happy. Take out is an option. Ubahn exit: Rosenthalerstrasse – blue line north from Alexanderplatz (U8)
