Lutter & Wegner
Best Traditional German
Lutter & Wegner is the ultimate in German charming restaurants. It's comfortable. The service is perfect. The food is exactly as it should be and the classics haven't changed in years. There are two dining rooms, the more formal Restaurant and the rustic Weinhandlung (wine shop). Both have waistcoated waiters shuffling between tables full of locals dining on perfect Weiner Schnitzel. In summer come for a long lunch at one of the outdoor tables beside Gendarmenmarkt Square. If you're lucky enough to be in Berlin during the Christmas markets, then get a table at their cosy pop-up in the Gendarmenmarkt. At all times Lutter & Wegner is ideal for a loooooong meal in Berlin.
Go for the German classics like schnitzel or roast pork knuckle
Lutter & Wegner mentions around the internet
"In between mouthfuls, diners can glance through the large restaurant windows at the grand edifices and human theater of the adjoining Genermenmarkt." ...Full review at Eat Before You Die
"I like sitting outside in the summer but I almost prefer Lutter in the winter, when it’s cold and blustery outside and you step into the warm, dark, wood-paneled dinning room" ...Full review at Foodie in Berlin
