Despite the restaurant being in the top 50 list of the best restaurants in the world, it makes the place shine among the others because of its uniqueness. You can find various different meals on the menu such as prawn sashimi, marinated pork, amuse-bouches, different kinds of meat and fish. The bistro is designed to have a Japanese feel to it. Even the food can come with oriental touch and when you exit the place, it can still feel like you just visited  the Land of the Rising Sun. Do not forget to book a table in advance because the reservations go out quick!

Grill Royal

If you ask a citizen of Berlin which bistro they would recommend choosing for a great food experience, they would definitely advise you to visit the place called Grill Royal. It is located next to the riverside and the place itself is beautiful, stylish and unique. However, if you are a vegetarian, the place is not for you as it is only focuses on meat lovers. Additionally, the prices are pretty high due to the fancy seafood and steaks. The meat is brought in from the local suppliers and sometimes from countries such as Australia and Argentina. The walls of the bistro are decorated with paintings and other sorts of art, and they are all brought in by the owner.
