Lovely place. Has a large outdoor seating area that I imagine is quite popular during warm months; but on a chilly, rainy new years day I sat inside. Beautiful interior, lots of table seating, all wood, candles and electric lighting. Friendly servers that speak English. Great place to top into for some of the less common Weihenstephaner beers.

The quality of the Weihenstephaner beers is always astounding, and this restaurant doesn’t disappoint in serving nearly all of them from the tap. You can’t even find a place like this in Munich even though the brewery is just outside of the city! The restaurant’s basement is a maze of old vaulted cellars, now rooms for groups. The terrace overlooks Hackescher Markt, which can be pleasantly lively when there are food stands outside. There aren’t that many world-class beers in Berlin, so this restaurant becomes a must imho. Where else would you get that many masterpieces (Weizen, Dunkel Weizen, Helles, etc.) under the same roof?

This Bavarian place in the eastern part of Berlin (Berlin Mitte) can be recommended both for their food and for their beers. There are nine different Weihenstephaner beers on tap supplied by a few bottles. I had a delicious and strong doppelbock called Korbinian. My Bavarian pork roast dish had also a good taste, even though the kartoffelknödel was not to my liking. A restaurant in a beer hall setting downstairs, and more like a café or bar upstairs. Polite service (visited, 23.11.2009).

Huge terrace area out front, too wet and cold to use on our 1st visit (an evening in April 2011), or our 2nd (Jan 2012).
Wooden floor on entering, the bar is a fair distance in front of you. To the left are tables, the wall to your right has a brightly lite display cabinate with beers, glasses, steins and certificates on show. We hooked up to a tall table with stools next to it.
Modern decor with a rustic touch, dark wood stools, scrubbed lightwood tables, modern chandiller with mood lighting. Cooler Keller bar (in temp amd ambiance) below, we were guided down there on our second visit. Table service of course, attentive and pleasant. We had two beers each and they were in good order and served as you’d expect in the correct glasses. I seem to think they only sell their own beers, not that’s a bad thing.
A classy joint, fairly quiet on our visit, but it is in a happening area and must get very busy at times. Food looked good, but we had none.

Great tourist-trap with only decent beers and shitty and arrogant service. They didnt have either Vitus or Koribinian on draught. Expensive and cold.

No doubt about the quality of the beers served. Nice place at Hackescher Markt, close to Oranienburger Straße. Maybe a bit touristy, but the beer and the food is of high quality. According to their webiste the Restaurant is is located in the oldest building in Berlin’s Mitte district.

Straightforward German brewery pub with a classic menu and a lovely cellar seating area. Friendly and attentive service as always in Germany. Pretty good selection of Weihenstephan on tap which makes it a safe haven if you’re tired of yeasty Berlin brewpub beer.

Nice restaurant and beer hall centrally located at Hackescher Markt. Rustic interior in wood and stone and lots of seating outside on the square. There is a small and cosy backyard as well. Good selection of Weihenstephaner beers on tap. Service was attentative and friendly. Central and accessible place for a spontaneous beer or to upgrade the Weihenstephaner ratings.

Location is great. A little desolate on a Tuesday night in January, but oh man, can the patio overflow during the summer. Beers are, of course, untouchable, and I’m always tempted to stop here when on this stretch of the S-Bahn, but I can’t remark too much on the food. Classical music, clean and spacious, with great, friendly service and some of the comforts of Bavaria brought to the heart of Prussia (mustard already at my table for the pretzel? Don’t mind if I do). Still just looks a little too new, sort of un-lived in despite the long history of the place.

Tourist trap for sure, but a decent place to shovel in some meat and try a few brews (mostly those you’ve already had, but now sampled by surly and/or diffident bier madchens). Food was average, everything overpriced, and we found ourselves wishing we’d gone back to the place just across the square (1809 or something like that) with the rad Berliner weisses.
