A unique location on the roof of the Reichstag with wide-open views of eastern Berlin sells this restaurant well before the food. A reservation here means you get to use the side entrance and avoid the consistently long line at the front, making this a good spot for breakfast at the start of a day’s sightseeing. Later in the day, this restaurant, run by a Munich-based delicatessen, specializes in gourmet versions of traditional German dishes. Lunches tend to be light and simple, with meatballs, salads, steaks and sausages on the menu. Dinners are far more ambitious, with such dishes as fried duck with scalloped potatoes, asparagus and chestnuts; or quail breasts—crisped perfectly on the outside, yet soft on the inside—served with an odd but enjoyable asparagus and strawberry salad. Given the location in a prime tourist attraction, it’s mostly visitors to Berlin who grace the restaurant’s sleek and timeless interior, but in truth the food justifies a visit by anyone.
