I was a little in doubt; 39€ for a 3-course menu; salmon, duck, creme brulée, sounds a little expensive for something so ordinairy, but because of the good reviews we went there.
It turned out to be classic german with a modern twist, a very nice setting, super hospitality, you feel at home very fast, good service, top quality ingredients etc.
So compared to places that are classic in a "so last year, out of style, time has stood still" way, this place is classic in a "we know whats happening, but we dont want to serve snacks and spice everything up with wasabi and salty-caramel or whatever is trendy, we just serve the best which is salmon, duck and creme brulée" way

Good room and helpful staff. Taking traditional foods to new heights. Best overall single dish we had in Berlin was the local duck with cabbage and apples.

By the river, close to the city center, but yet a feel of secluded area.
Great staff, great room and even greater food.
The "Branderburger Bauernente" was recommended, and we have recommended it further. This is SOOOO worth the visit!

I was surprised that we had such a nice meal with great service (drinks, appetizer, 2 entrees, dessert) for less than 100 Euro. We made a reservation online (Berlin uses Open Table) for a Thursday evening, but I think we may have been able to walk right in, perhaps because it's located outside of the main tourist areas. This is not a place to go if you have time constraints, as it follows a slow food philosophy. However, for a comfortable evening with friends and family, this is a great place to go!

Our daughter invited us for dinner here.

It was the best dining experience during this stay in Berlin. Service was terrific, food--the best. We were there with young children (well-behaved, but still children) and the staff were lovely with them, and thoughtful.

There's nothing but accolades for this gem.
