Café Pasternak: Only for Tourists?
Nice restaurant but when i visited it 10 years ago it was a Russian restaurant where you met a lot of Berliners. Unfortunately nowadays i see only tourists there, the food is overpriced and the quality has decreased - what a pity because the waiters are still very friendly and helpful.
Favorite Dish: Last time i took blini with spinach and borschtsch . . .
Restaurant/Café Pasternak: Russian food like homemade
Decorated with famous russian artists and other well-knowns.
Great menue cards in the form of a picture album with old family pics from USSR, and each menue is different.
Named after Boris Pasternak, recipient of the 1958 Nobel Prize for Literature, born in Moscow, Russia. He studied at the University of Moscow and the University of Marburg in Germany.
In 1957 he wrote his best known book, the novel DOKTOR ZIVAGO (DOCTOR ZHIVAGO). It was banned in the Soviet Union, and he was ejected from the Union of Soviet Writers after receiving the Nobel Prize for Literature.
Boris Pasternak died of lung cancer in Peredelkino, Russia in 1960.
Favorite Dish: Wide variate of typical russian food
Blini (russian pancakes)
Pelmeni (like a russian ravioli)
Wareniki (Pelmini filled with vegetable)
Café Pasternak: Amazing Food!!! Well worth the trip
The ambience is nice, the staff is very friendly and speak English well. The prices are reasonable. I have been all over the world and this place has the best stroganoff I have ever had and I'm a foodie! I have been in Berlin for 3 weeks and all of the food here is very good but this it the best. I will definitely be going back before I leave.
Favorite Dish: It's Russian food and it's very good
beef stroganoff- strips of beef mushrooms in a sauce with potato cakes
Jewish beef dumplings- minced meat inside a dumpling
Blini fruit dessert
Everything was extremely well prepared
Pasternak: Russian food by the Water Tower
The service was apathetic, but the food was good. We chose this place mainly because we were starving and it had a view of the Water Tower. We had wanted to go to Gugelhof, but it wasn't open until 6pm; we couldn't wait!
I had the borscht, and Peter had a Stroganof. They were both good.
Apparently, this place is very popular, but we found it at an off hour so it was empty. I wouldn't go here again, but it was good borscht.
Favorite Dish: They serve Berliner Weiss in Rot and Grun. Be warned that these "beers" are really like fruity drinks. I liked it, so I took my husband's. He took my wine.
