"Golvet" is Swedish and means soil. It is understandable that a restaurant on the eighth floor with a breathtaking view of Tiergarten, Potsdamer Platz and the Philharmonie is called "Golvet". But that's exactly what the restaurant is all about: The Golvet is a contradiction in terms, everything here is different from normal. The combination of products and tastes with which chef Björn Swanson and his team experiment and shine is as contradictory as it is ingenious. Sucuk with parsley root or green tomato puree with anise and a great selection of unusual wines and special cocktails at the ten-metre-long mirror bar? Sounds exciting, doesn't it?
When: Tuesday to Saturday 7pm to 10:45pm (kitchen closing time)
Where: Potsdamer Straße 58, Mitte
Note: Closed from 15.-29.7.2019
