Feels like dining in a time machineDiener Tattersall is one of Berlin‘s most original institutions. A place where you feel like being stuck in a time machine - in a positive way. You enter to get lost in its old-world charm that is still very much alive in this pretty, leafy corner of Charlottenburg in West Berlin‘s city center. Since 1893, the premises of Diener Tattersall, originally the casino of a riding school, have been used as a location for social chats and toasts. The building survived WWII and was taken over by Franz Diener in the 1950s. It became one of the favourite pubs for artists, actors, and bohemians, with lots of famous regular customers - a tradition that continues until today. A picture gallery with portraits of Berlin artists plasters the walls and is constantly being added to. Food is simple, down-to-earth Berlin home cooking fare, in German: „Hausmannskost“. Such as lentil stew, sausages with sauerkraut, fried herring with steamed potatoes, eggs in mustard sauce with mashed potatoes, Königsberger Klopse (meatballs) with caper sauce. If you‘re just here for the atmosphere, order a portion of „Gürkchen“ (pickled gherkins) with your local beer or white wine spritzer.
