Berlin is known to have a huge range of “kebab” and “currywurst” stands, but where do you go if you want to spoil your better half with a romantic dinner?
The wonderful Marron restaurant is part of the Hotel Villa Kastania in Charlottenburg, where head chef Tobias Hagen conjures up international cuisine using seasonal products from Berlin and Brandenburg. With the open fireplace and a living room-like atmosphere, the Marron restaurant is the perfect place for a romantic dinner. The Marron is one of the best Berlin restaurants and is much fancier than any other – so you should definitely not show up there in sneakers and ripped jeans.
In business for ten years, the Kuchi Kant restaurant has long been able to consolidate its reputation as a sushi institution in Berlin. Based on Pan-Asian and Japanese nouvelle cuisine, the chef creates delicious dishes such as crunchy sushi rolls, steamed, buttered fish in a bamboo basket and Mr. Duc’s Special Plate, the chef’s personal selection just for you. Kuchi Kant impresses with its stylish interior made of dark autumn colors, but it is still cozy and very relaxed – you should definitely take a break here and try some raw fish.
This Chinese restaurant should be at the top of your to-do list. Toca Rouge belongs to the young Chinese master chef Afom, who himself stands behind the open kitchen block, wields his wooden spoon like a magic wand and creates magical dishes. Afom rarely smiles, but his food is guaranteed to put a big grin on your face. The menu consists of a diverse selection of dishes with such extraordinary names as Deep Throat Avocado, Five Deadly Venoms and Green White Pool.
As soon as you enter the restaurant, it becomes clear that the food can only be excellent here. There is an atmosphere of elegance, style, and good quality. The cuisine is described as Franco-Austrian – accordingly, dishes such as Tarte Flambé (in German: Flammkuchen) are on the menu. Of course, there are also innovative creations such as guinea fowl with bacon and spinach, artichoke ragout with homemade tomato pesto and of course the classic crème brûlée, which is served sweet, chilled and caramelized at Renger-Patzsch. The Renger-Patzsch is a place where you and your loved one can stay the whole evening to order more wine and have an excellent time.
Housed in the building of a former school for the poor from the 19th century, The Grand is now an exclusive restaurant complex with a bar and club. The noble, historical interior of the house – with crumbling stucco, chandeliers and leather sofas – attracts a well-heeled clientele. The Grand serves modern French-German cuisine with many specialties from the grill – for example veal from the North Sea coast – and the bar has an impressive selection of wines and cocktails. Afterward, you can relax in the pretty courtyard of the restaurant, admire the private collection of pop art or mingle with the crowd in the ballroom-like club. Elegant starting from the very best and a good choice for an exclusive dinner date.
