This place is all about the vibe, so you don't expect that the service, the wine, and food will also be really good, but they were.

Also, es war sehr lecker und eure Crew war liebevoll um uns bemüht.
Das Ambiente hat mir auch gefallen und natürlich, dass es so schön ruhig war. Ich komme gerne wieder.

We did not know what to expect but were very pleasantly surprised. The place is very casual (you are seated at long communal tables), but the food made you think you were in a Michelin star restaurant. The dishes are meant to share. Portions are small but more than adequate, so you don't feel stuffed.

Lovely ambiance, in the heart of the hotel. Sitting ‘am innenplatz’ among threes. Services are ‘ganz locker’. We’ve enjoyed it very much. And the food is dilicious!

Adam was an extremely engaged and helpful waiter, helping us navigate the menu, wine list, and directing us to the best ice cream afterwards.

I liked the most of the food, but the best experience was the michelberger sour cocktail. i’ve been to manny good restaurants, but pricewise it was very intense. i will give it another try before excluding or recommending it.

Our waiter told us not to get more than 6 dishes for two people, even though we wanted to order af bit more. We followed his recommendations and after we were stil really really hungry. The food were served in a different order than what we asked for, which was fine, just a bit confusing. The food were lovely, but served without any presentation or information, so we ourselves had to figure out what dish it was and what the sides were. Also they did not really remove empty glasses etc. After we were asked if we wanted more, we said yes or at least we'd love another drink, but then we had to wait more than 15 minutes to order. We decided to get the bill and have more in a place with better service. The waiter taking our payment was nice and asked us questions about our trip, but then gave us the receipt and walked away right in the middle of an answer to his own question. Rude way to end an evening where the service had been almost non-existing. A shame, since the food and out door surroundings are nice!

Thanks for your feedback and we're sorry to hear this was your experience. We would like to gently point out that we would never restrict the amount of food anyone can order! We usually suggest an amount and then always offer the possibility to order more if desired. Unfortunately on Friday at the point when this would normally happen it began to rain. Regrettably we were distracted with moving the restaurant inside and we apologise that we weren't able to offer our usual service at this point.

Everything was really good (service, ambience) and we had a really nice dinner with my partner. We were a little disappointed with the food unfortunately. We ordered three appetisers, two mains and two vegetable dishes as advised by the waitress.
Our best dishes were the pork and the cabbage. Delicious pork as well as the fresh Thai sauce and salad and together with the cabbage dish it all worked exceptionally well. But as far as the rest, we were brought each dish separately which in our point of view didn't really work out as we felt like they all lacked of something and would actually benefit if served together with another dish.
Appetisers were quite small, especially the kohlrabi and skordalia and for its price I was expecting a bit more. In Greece we usually have skordalia with cod or bread and we're really generous with it, it's only garlic, bread and oil after all.
Then the mains came one at a time and after we had finished those, the vegetable dishes came out again one at a time. I think it's a shame to serve the vegetable dishes after the fish and meat dishes as the flavours of the main dishes are more intense therefore the vegetables then get lost when served last.
We had finished our mains (the two fish dishes) and the aubergine dish (which came on its own after our mains) and as we were still hungry, we ordered the pork dish. That came out with the last vegetable dish (the cabbage and white gazpacho) we had ordered and we thought it worked really well.
We had four different glasses of wine and those were exceptional, the waitress was really friendly and professional and helped us choose something we would enjoy.
Overall a great night out but perhaps the chefs in the kitchen could work a bit more on the balance of the flavours of each dish and organise the order of serving so that all the ingredients shine through.

Hello, & thank you for your feedback. We're happy to hear you enjoyed the wine & service, & we apologise if there was a misunderstanding about the structure of the meal. We would like to gently reiterate though that our menu is not a typical one with appetisers & mains. Rather, our dishes are designed as share plates and are served staggered. If this was not communicated by our team, please accept our apologies. We have also discussed your feedback regarding the dishes with the chef. Best, Zoe

The lunch tray is a delicious light meal to enjoy in the sun. Food was fresh and tasty- gazpacho a really welcome addition on a blisteringly hot day. Staff were allergy aware and took extra precautions to make sure the diners in our party were well catered for which was appreciated. The courtyard is a little oasis of calm in a tourist heavy area and had such a lovely, calm atmosphere. It was difficult to find someone when we needed to pay though, felt the lunch service needed a few more staff.

Our expectations were high. We had looked through several restaurants, before choosing this one.
Arivial was good, very welcoming, waiter was very kind.
We were open for anything, so we asked the waiter for food suggestions along with wine - our budget was open.
Food began to come to the table incl. wine - very good.
Suddently the waiter disapeared and it seemed like no one even noticed our table. One waiter "threw" a dish on the table - Again we did not have a clue what we ordered - we asked the waiter to suggest.
So one dish was not even explained.
No one asked how the food was
We had to ask for dessert menu
We informed and talked with the staff about our experience - they appologised with two shots of snaps.
We are not coming back - very hip place, but we have millions of them in Berlin/Copenhagen(where we are from) - we wanted an experience - a WOW - some good service.

Booked breakfast at Michelberger based on a recommendation by a Danish food magasin, even though it was not around the corner from our hotel (in Prenzlauer Berg). Was happy we went! The breakfast buffet was fantastic - everything not just looked very appealing but tasted fresh and delicious. Loved the nicely prepared vegetables (broccoli, squash and cauliflower) as well as fresh tomatoes; enjoyed the home-made jams; fell in loved with granola and yoghurt. Plenty of cheese and charcuterie to choose from. Service was prompt and most friendly. Did not think it was possible to get surprised and delighted about "yet another" breakfast place in Berlin, but it has proved me wrong. Will be back.

Had a lovely brunch here. Everything was perfect, my lactose intolerant friend was so happy about all the vegan options that meant she could eat more or less everything on the tasty buffet.
Only minus is the coffee that we thought was very weak, you could however pay extra and get espresso or other variants.

Firstly the service was exceptional . We had a Canadian (a gent) and an Irish girl wait on us and they were super. Explained all dishes in detail . Really liked the interior. There was a dog and he barked from time to time we didn’t take much notice other may have . Food was delish . The pork cheeks , trout , and Swede my personal favorite. Would highly recommend. The Irish girl from Wicklow gave us great recommendations to go for drinks the following day !! Service 10/10

Interessante außergewöhnliche Menügerichte sehr schmackhaft und lecker zubereitet. Ein wirklich außergewöhnliches Restauranterlebnis. Ambiente durch gekachelte Wände und teilweise lange Gemeinschaftstische geprägt. Aufmerksame Bedienung. Leider waren wir in der kalten Jahreszeit da und konnten so nicht den romantischen Innenhof nutzen. Wir kommen wieder.
