I am married to a successful chef. She can't help but dissect every meal we eat and can vividly recall menus from 5 years ago.
I am constantly trying to impress her.
Katz Orange was recommended by 2 people when we made plans to come to Berlin.
And much to my delight & amazement, it was the highlight of our entire 2 week European trip.
I can not give this a higher recommendation.
The whole space is really quite idyllic and charming. The outdoors is amazing, and all the rooms inside are decorated eclectically but tastefully.
The cocktail program is delicious, the wine recommendations were fantastic, the food was off the hook (get the Duroc pork), and my wife is still talking about our great conversations with the sommelier.
We were kind of on the fence about visiting Berlin, but it really rocked our world, and we would totally go back.
Thank you again, Joshua, for making it such a special and perfect night for us.
We hope to see you again sometime!!!
We had a nice evening out at this cool Berlin restaurant. It's tucked away in the back of a smal courtyard. The waitstaff were young, hip and fluent in English. Wine by the glass was inexpensive. My wife started off with the bean salad, which was OK . I liked the smoked trout very much. My wife had the vegetarian quiche, which was OK. My daughter and I shared short ribs for two, which was cooked sous vide. It was excellent. We had a side of very good arugla salad. The french fries and home made ketchup were really good, too.
Fun restaurant, great vibe, good to very good food and service. I would definitely go back.
Very cozy restaurant hidden in a backyard in an old brick building. Great service, and wonderful, tasty, slow cooked meat that melts in your mouth. They make great wine suggestions and the food arrives quickly. The atmosphere is buzzing and you feel very at home here. Best meal I had in Berlin!
Found the recommendation from Wine & Food magazine and loved it! The vibe here is vibrant and chic. A great cocktail program that features a house infused vodka with bacon fat to make a 'New' Old Fashion! Great idea! We were offered to be seated outside but we waited at the bar to have a round of cocktails first. The outdoor seating is definitely the preferred settings as the weather was perfect. We ordered the soup with scallops, was delicious. The venison was cooked well. It was well worth a 10 Euro taxi ride. Recommend.
Loved it here. Super fresh items, both vegetarian and slow cooked meats. Quite the range. Duck fat fries... do it!
Very beautiful location tucked in an alleyway off of Torstrasse. The dining areas are divided into several smaller rooms over at least two floors - this helps cut down on noise, as almost every table was full on a recent Friday night, yet no one at our table had to raise their voices to be heard. Service was also very good in contrast to reviews we had read on other sites. The location and ambiance is suitable to a romantic date or a somewhat lager group of good friends.
Food had lots of potential, but needs more oversight to be worth the hefty price. Our field greens tasted a little dirty, probably could have used another washing to get rid of some grains of dirt. The slow cooked pork was also a little dry, and the accompanying sides (potatoes, pickled cucumbers, onions) could have used something a little more colorful (green vegetable) to better round out the plate. The venison was a big hit - was cooked perfectly and very tasty, with an interesting number of vegetables and other bite-sized tastes decorating the plate. The steak tartar was also nicely done. The dessert list had a lot to offer - we ordered two and enjoyed both, but nothing to write home about.
A big disappointment however was my cocktail - I had read on local blogs that Katz Orange was well known for its bartenders, but was horrified to see my sazerac served in a glass full of ice with a straw, which I'm pretty sure is a major no-no for this type of drink. Not sure if this was intentional in order to add a house flare or not, so i decided to give it a chance rather than sending it back, but it certainly kills everything good about this drink. the ice makes it difficult to sip and eventually waters down the rye, and the straw is a cheap addition to an 11 euro drink that also obscures the absinthe aroma. I'd be curious to know if this was their intention (and whether the other cocktails are similarly misinterpreted) or whether it was made by a new and poorly trained staff member.
Wow, this place is something special.
You make a turn into this courtyard and boom there it is, red brick, lush green ivy and all.
You walk inside and it feels special and unique.
The menu is made of cardboard and holding everything in place by a bent knife and fork.
The food sounds fantastic!
We are still waiting on our bottle of red wine and the food.
So I'm gonna jump the gun and say, just try it for yourselfenjoy
Beautiful people. Beautiful drinks. Beautiful food. Beautiful service. If you can get in - fortunately a well connected friend got us a table. I went with a small group and it was a very festive and trendy atmosphere. I cant name the specific dishes, but I had salad and fish and it was very tasty and well prepared.
Beautiful restaurant with beautiful people. A spot for people watching. Quite upscale. I had four course meal....it would consider a 6 course meal in the States because the starter and the dessert were not part of the four course. The food was well presented and very tasty. Sommelier was from the Bay Area and very friendly. Nice wine pairings.
Get the slowcooked Duroc pork, where the flesh just melts off the bone and in your mouth. The fries, too, were very good, as were their cocktails. Unfortunately it was all very filling so we didn't have space for dessert,
