Fisherman's Restaurant

With its large sun terrace the Fisherman's Restaurant has a fantastic view on Lake Tegel. Berlin's only pier for river cruise ships is very close by and it is only a five-minute walk to Alt-Tegel, the historic center in the north of Berlin. In this idyllic environment Sören Engelmann and his team receive their guests. Engelmann, who grew up with fresh fish Greifswald,  offers here since 2006 a refreshingly modern, youthful fish cuisine. One that unmistakably combines German traditions with the influences of the Mediterranean region. This creates completely new, often surprising and sometimes extremely sophisticated compositions. For example, a perfectly seasoned foam soup of Madroca's curry with flamed scallops, lava and chilli is served, an almost "pink grilled tuna steak with Barolo honey jus" or giant lemon prawns roasted in lemon oil with raw sugar and tequila flambé.

Fisherman's Restaurant, Eisenhammerweg 20, D-13507 Berlin
