The surrounding area is beautiful! Worth a visit. We expected more from Oxymoron. Food was okay, but not as beautiful as advertised. Too many waiters managing too many tables. They were friendly however. The atmosphere represented in the pictures looks nice… but reality is ‘so...so’. For a nice plate of food it’s okay, but pricey.More

This place had real charm, a stylish cocktail slurping clientele without being stuffy or pretentious. The wine was superb as was the curated tasty menu. The service was efficient and attentive but unobtrusive. The little square the restaurant is in by the picture house is...pretty with a hint of the magical. I’d highly try this restaurant.More

My partner and I had the most disappointing meal at this restaurant in what is a most beautiful building. The food was pretty tasteless. Okay so we could taste salt sweet sour and salt but beyond that the food was bland without any particular and...nuanced flavour - so disappointing, and at 100 euros with wine overpriced for what we received. The view was nice but not worth the tag!More

We spend summers in Berlin for personal and work reasons. We tried Oxymoron for the first time as we usually go to the other restaurant right nearby. My husband's vichyssoise was wonderful. My chicken Cesar salad with wasabi and krupuk (Indonesian shrimp crackers) was swimming...in too much dressing. I love krupuk but it didn't fully make sense to have that rather than a Japanese cracker in keeping with the Japanese wasabi. There were just a few pieces of chicken---delicious but not very much. The wait time for our drinks was very long and for our food was too long. The waiter was very solicitous and nice. When we paid and I added several Euros to the total, making it 59, the waiter stated that 10 percent would be 61 Euros. I was shocked---this has never happened before in a German cafe or restaurant. The two Euros difference is not the issue---it's the expectation of a certain amount which is not the case in other German restaurants. We'll go back to the other restaurant next time and have croutons with Cesar salad instead.More

Dear Diane, we are verry sorry for that experience concerning the tip especially . This is also not in our sense and we will clarify this again with the team. Kind regards.

The food and staff were great but the wandering around this complex was a real eye opener. Just to walk around the various shops and courtyards was very interesting. Worth while a visit

Me and my wife have been to Oxymoron previusly when visiting Berlin and always enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. This time, we came back four nights, of which one for dinner, and we had an even better experience than before. A fantastic team took...great care of us every night. And the femal waitress, that spreads a positive energy through smiles and laughter amongst guests and colleagues, is great.More

Wonderful restaurant within the Hackesche Hofe. White tablelinen, candles and an innovative menu with beautifully presented food and unexpected (but spot on) flavour combinations.

Impeccable service, outrageously inventive food, seductive old world charm. An oxymoron indeed. Book a table to be sure you get a spot on the sofa.

We were attracted to this menu for its bizarre flavour/food combinations. We both had risottos which were amazing. Our server was efficient and gave us plenty of recommendations including cocktails and wine. Bread and tap water were also provided free of charge which were much...appreciated as these were none existent in every other place we ate at during our stay.More

Fine dining at a reasonable price. Located off the main street, surrounded by old atelier buildings. High standard dishes with a pleasant service.

only was there for brunch, it was pretty empty, I think Berlin is pretty friendly in general, it's more about how you wanna enjoy the experience.
