We have visited a few times now, and this ALEX is very popular due to the location. The staff are usually really friendly and helpful. The last time we went our food took ages and unfortunately the chips were lukewarm to cold as well as the outside of the burgers. We ate anyway as we were so hungry and despite... More

We went to the Alex a few times during our stay and the food was really good, the place had a good feel about it, like being on holiday. On Mondays from 6 they do Happy Hour cocktails until closing, they are the best cocktails ever! 4.70€ each!!!! Theres so much alcohol in them that they're well worth it even... More

Stayed at the Grand Hyatt where breakfast was €36 so we looked elsewhere and stumbled upon this place a couple of minutes walk away. Fantastic breakfast buffet for €8.90 per person, drinks not included. Full spread of scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, frikadellen etc plus loads of yogurt, cereals, cheeses, pastries, charcuterie, salads etc. Absolutely fantastic value for the price. Very... More

Really nice atmosphere, good food, and they were willing to split our check! Stumbled upon this one night and was just going to have drinks and appetizers, but after looking at the menu we had our other friends come meet us and stay for dinner. Our waiter, Phillip, was very friendly and spoke great English. Our food took a bit... More

Visited here after finishing a cycle tour at Alexanderplatz. We were very cold so started with hot drinks and cake-which were very tasty. We then moved onto cocktails having realised Happy Hour was about to start-making cocktails around the 5 Euro mark. We also had food-burgers etc in the main and the portions were large and the meals tasty. We... More

Came here for a drink after a look around the local area & ended up staying for a couple of hours as the drinks were lovely and the service good, despite it being a packed Friday evening. One mistake I made was going to the bar to order drinks, only to be informed that it was table-service, which was a... More

We spent here more or less three hours and we definitly stood up happily: the food was awesome, the beers were really good, the waiters are nice and the atmosphere is cozy. It's not super economic but I would definitely suggest it.

The staff at Alex are quite stressed out, which gives the place a manic and chaotic feeling, although most of the waiters are friendly enough when you flag them down (with one or two notable exceptions). The restaurant is extremely large with poor acoustics, which means it can get quite loud once more than half the tables are full, especially... More

This place is stunningly terrible. Never before have I waited 35 minutes just to be seated and the staff here just don't seem to care. Also if you love birds then you'll love this restaurant, the birds inside the restaurant are obnoxiously loud to the point where you can't even hear the person you came with. Did I mention it...

Neighbourhood Profile
Mitte
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
