Must visit this place while you're in berlin, we went on a sunday so they closed at 4:30pm.
The view is amazing, it overlooks the whole of berlin, what's nice is that the brochure tells you the names of the building you're looking at.
The menu had good but very limited options, however the food was excellent, and the presentation was perfect. Staff was friendly and helpful. I would recommend the lamb meatballs and creme brullee for dessert.
Just had been here a few weeks back and now again for lunch to celebrate a Birthday. I was very happy on both occasions since food and service were great. This time we had a lovely table right at the window with a fantastic view over the city. The service was outstandingly welcoming and friendly. The salad with goat cheese and cranberry vinaigrette as a starter, the vegetable platter as a main and the ginger creme brulee with pistachios as dessert were cooked very well and to my liking.
Käfer Berlin is a really chic, modern and trendy restaurant on the roof of the Reichstag in Berlin. The ambience is very relaxing and fresh. Plus not only can you sit inside the restaurant, they also have an open terrace over looking Berlin towards the east, if the weather is bad they have glass screens which can be closed while you take in the views from the outside in.
The Food is delicious here and the service is truly great, we had Sunday lunch here and even though it was very busy and with a children party on the terrace, noise was minimal and service was excellent, really friendly and professional staff. You can see the chefs preparing, cooking and serving your meal as the kitchen is open.
It is not very expensive, compared to many other places in Berlin Mitte, but then again not many tourists know that this gem is tucked away, in a place that they queue around the block for.
Reservations are needed and a good tip is that when reserving a table on top of the Reichstag you avoid the queue, entrance is at the side and in a few seconds you're on the roof of the Reichstag, taking in the great views and the great food. Perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon.
Schon allein das Gefühl, mit einer Reservierung an der laaangen Touristenschlange vorbei einfach hinauszufahren ist unbezahlbar :)
One of the great tourist "tips" when visiting Berlin is to have breakfast on the top of the Bundestag. Not only do you avoid the long queue (you enter via a separate entrance) but the restaurant provides a good variety of breakfast choices.
