Honest food, fabulous drinks, a good conversation at the bar, a spontaneous night? Here, everything is possible." CRACKERS is my idea of Berlin, compensated on 280 square meters, "says Heinz Gindullis.

There is a furious room with a hypnotizing ceiling, generous, atmospheric, and different from every perspective. The open kitchen allows guests to see their dishes being prepared by the skillful chef Daniel Lengsfeld and his crew. A black staircase leads to the Private Dining Room on the first floor, which can accommodate a further 28 people. The premises of the former club were completely rebuilt by the architect Laura Rave and Jörg Schumann. The result is sensationally casual and gorgeous.

Cookie has once again succeeded: CRACKERS has become a gorgeous gourmet playground.

An unserem Platz hat es sehr gezogen/kalte Luft und die eine Kellnerin ist immer wieder gegen meinen Stuhl gelaufen, ohne sich zu entschuldigen. Insgesamt war das Personal nicht so aufmerksam wie ansonsten....schade!

Wir waren zu zweit zum Abendessen und haben es sehr genossen. Das Essen (Tartar und dann Dry Aged Steak) waren wirklich sehr lecker und von bester Qualität. Das Ambiente ist sehr modern und ansprechend gewesen. Das Publikum war sehr lebhaft und unterhaltsam.
wir haben die Zeit dort sehr genossen und würden jederzeit wieder gehen.

Outstanding meal at Crackers, we had tried to book Cookies their sister restaurant but there was no availability for the Saturday evening we were looking for. The restaurant is a little difficult to find as it is a side gate on the street that leads down to passageway but this just adds to the experience, once inside the decor is modern and contemporary.

Service was great, our waitress had a lot of personality and spoke better English than my German. We drank a great Riesling (so good we had two bottles).

Starters were well presented, goats cheese and beats salad and an outstanding burrata. We both had filet steak for main course, the asparagus side was particularly tasty. We finished with a chocolate brownie, beautifully presented and big enough to share, in fact the portion was so good three or four could comfortable have shared.

Great meal, fantastic location and spot on price wise.

die Bedienung war sehr zwingend, wir sollten und mussten ständig mehr bestellen als wir wollten, Getränke, Vorspeisen, Nachspeisen. Darüber ist den Preis/Leistung schwach. Eigentlich sehr teuer für Berliner Betriffe. Ein Salmon kostet € 30,00, ohne etwas ohne Beilagen, genau so mit einem kleinen Stück Fleisch. Wir werden es nie mehr buchen.

Wenn man denn den Eingang endlich gefunden hat (leicht zu übersehen, wenn man das erste Mal kommt), erwartet einen ein spannendes Ambiente. Hätte gern mal gewusst, was die ursprüngliche Nutzung des Ortes war. Nett eingerichtet, sehr kompetente Bedienung, die sich auch auf leichte Konversation versteht. Gute Beratung hinsichtlich Speisen und Getränken. War bestimmt nicht das letzte Mal dort...

Depends on what you like.

Awesomely hidden place. But.

Probably it’s better to come on Fri/Sat for late night dinner with meat dishes and cocktails, and have a DJ playing on the background.

We came on Sun and ordered soft shell crab for starter, fish for mains and (first in long-long time) fries (expecting them to be awesome in a such a posh restaurant).

Best dish - is biscuit bread they serve as a compliment. Fish was well made. But crab was too deep fried and too oily. I felt only oil, no crab taste. Fries were also oily and too dark (over cooked).

Overall it was ok, but I personally wouldn’t come again.

I would recommend this place, great food and stylish design. Entrance was not easy to find at first, but when You get there, it surprises You in a good way. As it was very busy during Berlinale, sometimes needed to wait for the drinks, or food, or just waiter to look at You, but once the food is on Your table - You forget everything. We had a little confusion, as I made a reservation for 6pm, and by 7.30pm we would need to leave the place (they give You the table for 1,30-2hours), and this was something I wasn't warned about during the booking process. As we had another meeting scheduled at the same place, and if we would leave, we would never find anything on the fly, manager took care of things and they allowed us to stay for the rest of the evening. Would definitely go there again!

Leider hat die Küche bei unseren Hauptgängen die Garstufen wesentlich verfehlt. Unsere aufmerksame Servicekraft Froni aus Franken hat dies mit Ihrer charmanten Art aber mehr als wett gemacht. Der Rest passte. Ein schöner Abend in einer coolen Location.

Super stilvolle Location mit hervorragender Küche. Der Empfangsmann war sehr angenehm und unterhaltsam. Der Rest der Bedienung sah dagegen etwas gelangweilt oder müde. Vielleicht lag es aber nur daran, dass wir an einem Montag da waren? Ansonsten sehr empfehlenswert für ein besonderer Abend.
