Positives:Good place to eat, central, nice location, nice interior decor, good menu. Negatives: surly waiters, it's quieter than a church, desserts need work.
The Berliner Ensemble theatre, where Bertold Brecht was played and Nina Hagen performs is next to the Ganymed restaurant, a mixture of a French and a German brasserie. The atmosphere is easy and relaxed. We had a three course menu and a very good wine. The fish is good. Service is excellent. Prices are very reasonable.
You can eat either in the restaurant or outside next to the river. The are various dining options, but we both opted for one of the 3 course set meals - mine was 37.50 & my wife's 28.50 Euros.The food was well presented & well cooked. As a starter I had 3 crustacions, which looked attractive but had little substance... More
In a very fashionable part of the former east Berlin, Ganymed spreads from its large indoor restaurant to a garden plot outside and a riverside plot across the road.

Bad experience in this restaurant,it has all the pretention of french cuisine without any generosity! Quality of food is average and close of what you can get in any parisian train station bistro. Service was very slow and not friendly and the price for what you get is just ridiculous! Never again

We were seated inside in a prime location despite our sleeveless, sleazy touristy, biker garb and attended to exactly as if I had worn tails and a top hat. Top hat and tails. Whatever. When we finally figured out how to order from... More
We had a nice dinner that was reasonable in price and was of average quality. The service was fairly fast but the attitude of the waitor was near to rude and he made sure we were very aware that tips was not included in the price. When we then gave him a tip he was still not pleased and gave... More
Went here with friends during a short city break to Berlin. We were seated on the terrace next to the restaurant as the river terrace was already full. The service was the worst I have ever experienced. Our waitress walked off halfway through taking our order, refused to supply butter with our bread basket and avoided our table all night.... More
This little bistro on the banks of the Spree has a lot going for it. Great history and location. But overall we were very disappointed with the food and service times. €130 for two set 4 course meals and a bottle of Riesling. The food was served excruciatingly slow. Three hours; and there were less than a dozen guests in... More
