Came across this place, or should I say boat, by chance. Looked popular with the locals so booked for dinner. Food was of a very high standard with friendly service. Nothing to fault at all.
Eat here.

Go if you have kids! It's a gorgeous little place on a boat in the middle of the river. Just, in the afternoons until early evenings it's sort of a kindergarten... lot's of noise and dirt and not too nice if you just want to meet a friend and chat a bit.
For dinner okay, - but the smell of the open kitchen sits in your clothes for days...

What a place! In principle nothing to object; everything was quite fine. We had been invited for a huge birthday party which lasted for several hours for the whole evening. A buffet had been served with delicious smoked fish and many other dishes. We had been drinking Berlinsky sparkling wine, a very good Grauburgunder etc.

Towards the end (around mid-night) some of us were still very thirsty (from talking too much) and ordered a last-minute 0.33 mineral water to share among us, and - when leaving five minutes later - had been presented a bill of EUR 5,70 for that. What a shame! The excuse was that the total bill (probably exceeding the EUR 1000) had already been paid by our hosts.

Sorry, Van Loon responsibles, this is a shame and it would never have happened in other premises or other countries. How can you be so parsimonious and not generous at all? This puts a bad light on you.

Nice lunch (seafood a speciality) in a very clean, and laid back environment. The owner eats here, and the vessel does frequent river trips in Berlin and advertises in advance.

We came here for drinks and cake on a lovely autumn day, we sat above deck and it was amazing. I've heard (from my flatmate) that winter they have an open fire downstairs.
They have a daily menu with a veggie option and a meat option, served with a drink.
So lovely!
