During my trip in Berlin I decided to check out the restaurant cafe rix. My heritage is half German so i was looking for a traditional German meal my grandma used to cook when I was little. I need to admit the restaurant hasn't disappointed me at all. I've tried the goose with red cabbage and potato dumplings. It was... More

I highly recommend Rix for a relaxed Sunday brunch in Berlin. The service was friendly and the setting very chilled, which is just what you want on a Sunday morning. The food - cooked and cured meats, cheeses, salads, hot options (sausages, egg and pancakes) plus the incredible yogurt - was excellent.

I was here for dinner. The cafe looks beautiful but service is slow and it's noisy. Food was bland, served cold and with way too much sauce. Maybe ok for a drink but definitely not recommended!

We went here for some breakfast and were quite annoyed by the slow service. Everytime we wanted something we needed to go inside the café to look for the waiter. The food as such was alright but also not breath-taking. The waiter situation made us stay way too long in that place and at the end I started to be... More

The place was booked for a family party if over 70 people with buffet, mostly mediterranean and vegetarian. Great food and drinks. Beautiful room and a really nice courtyard for outdoor seating.

I visited Café Rix on the recommendation of a friend and had a really good experience. The waiter was super friendly and spoke great English. I was offered an English menu, although I can't say how good it was as I opted to struggle through with the German one. The atmosphere in the bar was very chilled and I did... More

Was on the hunt for good brunch food and this came up in the reviews as one to visit. After travelling since 11pm the night before, a breakfast visit here was welcomed! Their brunch is as excellent as the reviews same and the ambience very impressive, the decor and little courtyard outside is super neat. Definitely worth a visit if... More

We visited Café Rix as a group of 15. They sat us in the outside area which was nice because the sun was out and it was quite warm. Apart from the normal menu, there were specials of the day. A good selection to choose from, whether you wanted a meat dish or a vegetarian one. There is a coffee... More

I've been to the Café twice for BRUNCH and i would go again at any time. The Brunch buffet is full of lovely and very tasty food with a drink menu to match. Weather permitting it is very nice to sit in the quiet courtyard, but the indoor space is "grand" and makes you feel like you're eating in a... More

We did a Sunday visit and Rix was packed. Beautiful room and furniture. The music could be a little softer. Not cheap considering the food was between really not fresh or tasteless.

Neighbourhood Profile
No Berlin neighbourhood is more popular with the young and jet-set crowd than the old worker's district of Neukölln. With so many Turkish settled here, the area became known as “Little Istanbul“. Today the percentage of foreigners is still high and visitors still frequent the Turkish shisha bars. In the daytime, they also visit the designer shops and sit by the canal in one of the street cafés up and down Westerstrasse or at Maybachufer, having a beer and waving to the sightseeing boats as they float by. But at night, Neukölln is dominated by increasingly young, alternative, and international crowds. This is particularly evident in the northern section of the district where there are many bars, funky clubs, galleries and restaurants. There, the night never seems to end.
