10 Top Restaurants in Berlin During ITB, or Anytime

Food is one of the best parts of travel. Whether you’re stopping for a bánh mì at a roadside stall in Ho Chi Minh or sitting down to a Mexican-Japanese fusion dish at a 5-star restaurant in San Jose del Cabo, the excitement of discovering the flavors of a different culture is something that never gets old.

It’s no surprise then that many exhibitors at ITB Berlin – the world’s largest travel trade show – provide free samples of their destination’s local flavors to entice tourists. It’s great fun to wander around the trade show and discover the flavors of far-flung places. However, don’t fill up too much on free chocolates and empanadas, because just outside those exhibition walls is a city famous for its gastronomy that’s just waiting to be discovered.

For some more tips on how to get the most out of your experience at ITB Berlin, take a look at our extensive guide for tips on preparing, networking, and gathering resources.

Flavors of Germany

Nobelhart und Schmutzig

If you’re looking to taste some truly local flavors we recommend booking a table at Michelin star restaurant Nobelhart und Schmutzig. The ingredients served at the restaurant are grown and produced almost exclusively in the Berlin region, a philosophy that the restaurant’s owner Billy Wagner describes as “brutal lokal”. Check out our interview with Billy Wagner to find out more about the restaurant and the philosophy that drives it.

Rogacki

If you find yourself in Charlottenburg while you’re in Berlin, we definitely recommend stopping at Rogacki. This locally famous deli dates back to the 1930s, and still sells some of the finest meats and smoked seafood in west Berlin. Try the German sausage or the smoked freshwater trout.

Marjellchen

Marjellchen is a quaint little restaurant filled with old world charm that serves up hearty and traditional East Prussian cuisine. While the restaurant does have a small vegetarian menu, the stars of this restaurant are traditional, meat-heavy meals like wild boar stew, smoked goose, and crispy roasted duck. Marjellchen is a popular spot so bookings are recommended.

Ebert Restaurant and Bar

This family run restaurant, found on a side street off the famous Kurfürstendamm, offers exceptional meals with great service. Try the Berlin style potato soup or the Berlin style veal liver for some local flavors.

Dicke Wirtin

This cozy bar and restaurant serves cold beers and warm meals with huge portions. The schnitzel with cucumber salad and potatoes is a hit with diners. Dicke Wirtin is well-loved by tourists and Berlin locals and it can get very busy, so we recommend making a booking if you want to make sure you get a table.

International Flavors

Lon Mens Noodle House

Not far from the Messe Berlin you’ll find Kanstrasse, which is the best street in Berlin for finding authentic food from Asia. One of our favourite spots on this street is Lon Mens Noodle House, which serves exceptional Taiwanese noodles in a modest restaurant with only a handful of seats.

893 Ryōtei

For a more upscale dining experience on Kanstrasse, book a table at 893 Ryōtei. While this restaurant doesn’t look impressive from the outside, inside you’ll find marble countertops and a dramatic open bar and kitchen as well as exceptional Japanese food with a South American influence.

Osteria Ferrari

No restaurant list is complete without some incredible Italian food, and Osteria Ferrari definitely does not disappoint. The owners of this intimate restaurant bring authentic Emilian cuisine to Berlin with their incredible handmade pastas. Osteria Ferrari only seats 22 diners, so we definitely recommend making a booking.

Lotus Restaurant

The Lotus Restaurant offers great cuisine from all corners of India, including South Indian specialities such as dosas and idli. This restaurant also offers a private room which can be booked for business meetings if you’re looking to impress a contact from ITB.

Restaurant Le Faubourg

The menu for this elegant restaurant features classic and modern variations of French dishes paired with fine French and German wines. The restaurant’s knowledgeable and charming staff provide great service in a relaxing and tasteful setting.
