Description: SOMETHING THAT CHEF CHRISTOPH HAUSER AND HOST MICHAEL KOHLE BOTH FEEL VERY STRONGLY ABOUT: Respect for the animal means that all of its parts should be used - from nose to tail. And it is on this basis that our restaurant prepares its dishes and creates its weekly menu, sharing gastronomic pleasures otherwise to be enjoyed only at the dinner tables of farmers who slaughter their own livestock. Cuisine here is not limited to just the "choice" cuts of meat. Our guests instead have the opportunity to discover the joy of good food - beyond just the tenderloin filet.

Lovely small room, white walls, sparsely but comfortably set (and interesting lighting). Really imaginative chef, interested in all parts of the beast in cooking. So, we had a lovely head cheese in great salad, boar liver – gamey and well sauced, sweetbreads perfectly prepared, and finished with venison. All nicely done with imaginative sauces/accompaniments – and a great server too.

We ate at Herz & Niere last night and really had the perfect experience.
We notified the restaurant in advance of our dietary restrictions and the team went out of their way to make sure we have a great time.
The food was amazing and non conventional, the service was warm and caring, the atmosphere was intimate and quiet.
I highly recommend you try it too :)

We did a lot of eating out while in Berlin, and Herz & Niere was the best. We had the non-offal tasting menu and loved it. Delicious. The owners were so nice, knowledgeable, and congenial. Couldn't ask for more. Nice and quiet, too!

I am wasn the biggest fan of offal, but if you are going to try it, then you should go to a place that specialises in it. I was pleasantly surprised just how great it was and to be fair I only went for the 50/50 option but what I did have was great.
As it was our wedding anniversary and not knowledgeable about German wines, we opted for the matching wines with our meal and this was bar far the best way I could have imagined eating here. Berlin has much to offer and not only is this part of Berlin beautiful with other bars and restaurants nearby, the modern take on German food by Herz & Niere is wonderful

It was a great experience! Excellent service and the best food ever! The best thing was not having to choose the menu and get a surprise! Superb! Thanks
