The First Floor offers gourmet food in an upmarket, sophisticated environment.

I know, I know, not everybody likes hotel restaurants. But this one is worth it. The First Floor is named for its location on the first floor of the Hotel Palace Berlin. Decorated tastefully with rosewood panelling and Chinese carpets, it will satisfy anyone looking for a refined night out.
