Dining above the rooftops of Berlin. During the day, the Baret Café offers small lunches, coffee and original cakes, and in the evening, modern, unpretentious fine dining with an expanded menu. Honest, imaginative and undogmatic cuisine.

Chef Octavio Osés Bravo presents combinations that you might not expect, but that make all the dishes taste new. Culinary surprises, without extravagance, which also sometimes reinterpret down-to-earth classics in a contemporary and creative way. A variety of carefully selected regional ingredients are combined with fish, meat or vegetarian/vegan dishes and thus reinterpreted time and again.

Arthur Schuller, a young entrepreneur with many years of experience in cultural gastronomy, and the team he has put together are behind the concept: Kittiya Ruksakhet Hensel (Managing Director), Octavio Osés Bravo (Head Chef), Pavlov Georgiev (Bar Manager), Tam-An Tran (Restaurant Manager), Julia Gelau (Head of Communications & Events), Vera Miehe (Event Manager).

The restaurant is named after the pioneer and explorer Jeanne Baret (1740-1807).
