Food and drink

The high-quality French-German cuisine menu, which changes daily, features fresh fish, tender beef, Brittany oysters, veal and what it is reputed to be among the best Wiener Schnitzels in Berlin. The wine list is correspondingly wide-ranging and sophisticated.

Ambience

This Borchardt is a reconstruction of the original late 19th-century restaurant that burned down during the war. The modern incarnation features period details such as high ceilings, marble columns and an Art Nouveau mosaic. The tables are spaced widely enough apart to ensure intimacy but the atmopshere remains generally quite formal.

Service

Aloof but skilled.

Location

In Mitte, close to Franzosische Straße U-Bahn.

Price advice

The prix fixe lunch is more moderately priced.
