Here, everything is possible! Crackers is Berlin in a nutshell but you could as well be anywhere else in the world…London, Tokyo, New York… There’s a stunning room with a hypnotizing ceiling - generous, atmospheric and different from every perspective. Head Chef Dean Sprave and his team are proud to prepare honest food with best ingredients fresh from the restaurant´s farm in Brandenburg, meat from free husbandry and fish from local waters or strictly controlled aquaculture. Best enjoyed when shared with a lovely bunch of friends. It’s a must to either start or end your night at Crackers at the bar with absolutely fabulous drinks where you easily get to meet a wide range of global and local players…

I went to Crackers because it was a recommendation and it was really worth it. The entrance is really special and enigmatic, it really surprised us. To get into the dining you have to pass close to the kitchen where you can see the cookers working. The space decoration is just amazing. The meals were well served and cooked, we tryed the burrata that was really good, the turbot, steak tartar and the Crackers french fries (delicious). For drink, some wine well recommended by the staff. The only small fault is that I thought the turbot would be bigger but it was really good tasting cooked in the grill.

Als Vorspeise hatten wir Ceviche. Grundsätzlich in Ordnung, doch der Fischanteil war minimal, die insgesamt winzige Portion arg mit Grünzeug aufgeblasen. Leider stand nicht auf der Karte, dass darunter auch Koriander war. Das Brioche war köstlich. Zwar wurde dazu Butter gereicht, doch weder ein Brotteller noch ein kleines Messer dazu eingedeckt. Als Hauptgericht hatte ich Tatar, das schon fertig gewürzt war. Dazu hätte ich mir die üblichen Beilagen (Kapern, Sardellen etc.) gewünscht. Optimal wäre auch eine spezielle Brotauswahl gewesen. Die French Fries mit Mayo und Ketchup waren reichlich portioniert, aber deutlich zu stark frittiert und nicht besonders kross. Atmosphäre und Service jedoch haben einiges wettgemacht. Meine Freundin hatte ein vegetarisches Hautgericht – gefüllte Aubergine –, mit dem sie zufrieden war, mehr aber auch nicht. Nach zwei Stunden wurden wir gebeten, den Tisch freizumachen. Ich hatte das Essen deutlich besser in Erinnerung. Meine Empfehlung ist also dieses Mal stark eingeschränkt.

Good service. Ok food. Weird to sit on “a stage” with the back against the bar - knowing not everyone can get the great seats. Surprised everything was dead at 23.00.

Super design. Great atmosphere. But very disappointed with food. The ceviche was tasteless, the soft shell crab was ok but again the purée did not contrast well at all with the crab. The rabbit was good

First meal of our honeymoon and we couldn't have asked for better. They served us the best Chinese food I've ever had and I will recommend it to all of my friends who are going to Berlin. Portions are huge, maybe too big, I felt guilty having to leave so much on the plate. I am gluten intolerant and they have a good choice of gluten free dishes on the menu and they were also prepared to change the recipes to accomodate my dietary needs.

Our highly anticipated experience at Crackers was an infinite series of “almosts” that converged to disappointment. We entered through a not very well marked gate into a long concrete hallway that led to the kitchen. We initially thought that we made a wrong turn and arrived through the delivery door but it was in fact the entrance. The attempt seemed to be modeled after a hidden speakeasy and was the first of many “almosts”. The decor was quite trendy and one of the few things that Crackers gets totally right. However, the atmosphere is spoiled by the volume of the music. The restaurant had a DJ spinning tracks that were more appropriate for a dance club than a high end eatery. Conversation was impossible and halfway through the meal, I had a headache. We ordered a bottle of champagne to be followed by the burrata and the lobster bisque as starters. Unfortunately, timing is the next miss for Crackers. Our starters arrived well before the bubbly. The burrata was of good quality but was ruined by the sweet jam that was layered beneath it. The presentation of the lobster bisque was quite nice, but the dish itself was like drinking a bowl of melted butter. Prime rib with a chimichurri sauce followed as a main course. The prime rib was excellent but the asparagus we ordered to accompany tasted like the canned variety from the supermarket. Nothing on the dessert menu was particularly appealing so we ordered espresso with sambucca as a digestif. It arrived before we finished our wine and was cold by the time we were ready to consume. At this point, we couldn’t wait to pay and escape to find some peace and quiet. Final thoughts: Crackers is trying too hard to follow too many trends and needs to choose an identity and go all in. Is it a dance club? Is it a speak easy? Is it fine dining? If Crackers can’t decide, how is anyone else supposed to know?

I got engaged there and told the resultant in advance, they could not do more to make the event as amazing as it could be. The management and staff all went the extra mile to make run smoothly, they keep hold of stuff for me and got if for my at the perfect time. Afterwards they had a celibration shot with us and free champagne in the bar. On top of that the food was great, wine excellent and general ambiance spot on. Highly recommended.
