Description

The restaurant „Zur letzten Instanz” is the eldest restaurant in Berlin and ranks among the sights of the capital. Its origin is in 1621, when a former equestrian servant of the elector opened a gin mill at this place. The restaurant got its present name when mainly guests from the nearby court came to drink their experiences ”in the last instance”. Historic additions survived despite the reconstruction after the war, even Napoleon himself was served in the restaurant at the tiled stove. Our history, the two restaurants, private room and beer garden invite our guests to stay. Berlin cuisine a la carte with exclusive regional products and fresh beer on tap ensure culinary moments in original ambience. Das Restaurant „Zur letzten Instanz“ ist das älteste Restaurant Berlins und zählt zu den Sehenswürdigkeiten der Hauptstadt. Der Ursprung des Restaurants geht in das Jahr 1621 zurück, als ein ehemaliger Reitknecht des Kürfürsten an dieser Stelle eine Branntweinstube eröffnete. Seinen heutigen Namen erhielt das Restaurant als vorwiegend Gäste aus dem benachbarten Gericht kamen, um das Erlebte „in letzter Instanz“ zu begießen. Trotz Wiederaufbau nach dem Krieg blieben historische Anbauten und Interieur von Grund auf erhalten, selbst Napoleon hat sich am Kachelofen in der Gaststube bereits bedienen lassen. Unsere Geschichte, die beiden Gaststuben, Separee und Biergarten laden zum Verweilen ein. Berliner Küche a la Carte, mit ausschließlich regionalen Produkten und frisch gezapfte Biere aus dem Faß, sorgen für die kulinarische Untermalung in urtypischer Atmosphäre.

Tips from the Net @ Zur Letzten Instanz

The steamed pork knuckle was very good. Huge portion — big enough for 2 Asian women! Leave room for the apple tart. DELICIOUS. Though the place smells a little greasy, it goes away soon enough and the authentic unpretentious rustic ambience more than makes up for it. Hey, if it's good enough for Napoleon, it's good enough for me. GooglePlace - October 2017

Very nice location and friendly service, but nothing in the soup I had was fresh: canned vegetables, ready to use seasoning. Plus it was super salty. Only the meat in it was ok. GooglePlace - October 2017

Been already twice there. Service could be better but very nice atmosphere and delicious food. Not really a place to go veggie but there are still options. GooglePlace - October 2017

Quite genuine food in a nice atmosphere and a cozy feeling around. Great crayfish soup (sorry, I can't repeat that name in German). GooglePlace - September 2017

Food was great. Service not so much. We ordered the pig knuckle(Eisbein), grilled pig knuckle, and stuffed cabbage. Nice decor inside with outdoor seating as well. Tourist spot. Tourist price. GooglePlace - July 2017
