Expert review of Le Cochon Bourgeois

An authentic French restaurant with an appropriately high charm factor.

Le Cochon is one of Berlin's most authentic and established French restaurants, and with good reason. The menu is consistently good, the atmosphere charming and the service friendly and relaxed.

Food and drink: 

Chef Benjamin Stoeckel uses the highest quality produce to prepare French standards such as frog’s legs, quail leg and duck breast with a daring flourish. Other recommended dishes include the oysters from Ile de Re and grilled salmon on a potato-ramp ragout. The creme brûlée is delicious also, and there is a fine selection of French wines.

Ambience: 

The snug restaurant has a romantic atmosphere embellished by simple wooden tables, French chanson and a live pianist - it avoids being tacky but can often be over-filled with business clientele.

Service: 

Very professional. The chef often makes a personal appearance at tables.

Location: 

In the Kreuzburg district.

Price advice: 

Three, four and five-course dinners are all under between 35-60 euros.
