Fodor's Expert Review Hackescher Hof
This beautiful, wood-paneled restaurant is spacious but almost always crowded, and usually smoke-filled as well, but it's right in the middle of the action at bustling Hackesche Höfe, and one of the best places to eat German food while doing some excellent people-watching. Opt for regional country dishes like Brandenburg wild boar if it's available. The clientele is a fun mix of tourists and local artists and intellectuals, which gives the place a vibrant, lively atmosphere. When the weather is good there are tables outside in the courtyard, too.
