This restaurant is the complete package - unique concept, uplifting atmosphere, great service and exceptional food. Altogether, Massai offers a fantastic experience. If you're not afraid of unconventional (yet very tasty) food, a must in Berlin!

Prenzlauer Berg
No Berlin neighbourhood has undergone a greater change
than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists
that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in
the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip
