Expert review of Marjellchen

Step back into time with dishes from former provinces of East Prussia, Pomerania and Silesia.

Trip back to the Bismarck era with Marjellchen, one of the few - perhaps the only - restaurant in Berlin that offers cuisine from former/lapsed provinces like Pomerania and Silesia.

Food and drink: 

Marjellchen is the only restaurant in Berlin that specialises in the food of the former German provinces of East Prussia, Pomerania and Silesia. Much of the food comes from recipes left by the owner’s East Prussian grandmother. As befits the region, the cuisine is heavy, winter-type food such as dumplings, pork and cabbage. Try the red-beet borsch, Falscher Gänsebraten (pork spare ribs stuffed with prunes and breadcrumbs), or Mecklenburger Kümmelfleisch (lamb with chives and onions). There’s a good selection of beers to accompany.

Ambience: 

Marjellchen is very atmospheric, filled with music from the 1940s and 1950s and old books and pictures of Berlin.

Service: 

Friendly and polite. The friendly owner, Frau Azzaro, has been known to recite poetry and sing.

Location: 

Marjellchen is in the Charlottenburg district, just off the Ku’damm.

Price advice: 

Main courses from 10.50-20.20 euros.

Other useful branches: 

The original branch is in Kreuzberg on Bergmannnstraße.
