Want to really impress your date and indulge in a gourmet restaurant? Then check out our tips that tell you where to eat really well and classy in Berlin. At the Bieberbaurestaurant, a listed building, it's not just the Michelin-starred cuisine that's impressive, but also the ambience of the dining room: the stucco work with which the sculptor Richard Bieber created a monument for himself in 1894 is absolutely worth seeing. At Lovis you eat in a historic women's prison. But don't worry, the time-honoured walls, surrounded by an enchanted garden, look like magic after the renovation.
