Expert review of Alt Luxemburg

Gourmet food created by one of Germany's most renowned chefs.

Alt Luxemburg has been around for nearly 30 years - and for good reason. Their creative gourmet food is some of the most famous in Berlin, they boast great staff, and the wine list is peerless. Dining here is a memorable experience.

Food and drink: 

Chef Karl Wannemacher is renowned as one of Germany’s top chefs and carefully prepares traditional German cuisine using high-quality fresh produce. The menu is kept interesting with fresh dishes every month, but you’ll usually find lobster on the menu and specialities like fillet of beef with mustard-seed sauce and honey-glazed roast duck breast. Dessert dishes can include elderberry parfait, chocolate soup with nougat macaroon and bread rolls stuffed with Armagnac mousse and served with Armagnac ice cream. The food is accompanied by a slim but expertly-selected wine list.

Ambience: 

The intimate surroundings of this converted customs house feature dark wood paneling, mirrors and antique furnishings. The atmosphere is that of a 19th-century parlour. With the lack of background music, some diners may find the atmosphere a little stuffy.

Service: 

Service is friendly and extremely attentive. Staff will help select a wine and return it to the cellar between pouring to keep it at the right temperature.

Location: 

Charlottenburg.

Price advice: 

Diners can choose from a three (53 euros), four (64 euros), or five-course (70 euros) menu. A 15 per cent discount is offered if you dine between 5pm and 7pm.
