Michelin Star Restaurants in Berlin

Over the last few years, Michelin has sprayed a twinkling shower of stars over Berlin resulting in 10 restaurants being newly awarded with Michelin star status. The superb quality of these restaurants also persuaded Gault Millau reviewers to elevate nine Berlin restaurants to the German premier league, placing it ahead of all of its rivals. What is more, in 2007, Berlin chef “Tim Raue” from “Restaurant 44” was named Gault Millau Germany’s Chef of the Year.

Restaurant 44 boasts two fantastic menus, the first a traditional French menu, and the second, a radical Neue Deutsche Kuche. The latter offers delicacies such as sandalwood goat’s cheese with lobster tail. The décor is classy and comfortable and there is a fine selection of wine available.

Vau prides itself on an eclectic mix of dishes from all corners of the globe, inspired by the head chef there Kolja Kleeberg, whose meals are some of the best in Berlin. Kleeberg says his secret is keeping things simple, but we found his dishes exciting and interesting; “lobster with mango and black olives with a tapenade and braised pork belly with grilled scallops”. Kleeberg lets his mood influence his dishes, be it French, Japanese, Italian or Spanish… The elegantly decorated interior of Vau; modern art, light wooden panels and gentle lighting has passersby trying to catch a glimpse, and no doubt the delicious smells escaping from the restaurant is the thing that clinches the deal.
