Carl&Sophie Berlin: Tobi recommends the Spree restaurant in Moabit

Granted, since a failed relationship a few years ago, I've not really been to Berlin Moabit lately, even though I like the district. However, last week I finally had a good reason to pay a visit to the lively and vibrant neighborhood. With the trendy restaurant Carl&Sophie, a food hot spot has just opened in a top location here.

Dinner with a view

The stylish restaurant is located in a historic clinker house right on the banks of the River Spree and offers an excellent view. In summer time you can sit on the spacious outside sun terrace and watch the promenade while having lunch or dinner. Where today, in a bright and relaxed atmosphere, you can enjoy perfectly prepared dishes, already 200 years ago the Berliners were supplied with milk by the well-known traditional Bolle family. The listed building of the former dairy fascinates me right at the beginning of my visit through its exciting history and unique architecture.

Carl & Sophie Restaurant: Creative cuisine & top location on the Spree

Delicacies from all over the world

After myboy friend and I were welcomed and seated by the friendly staff, I take a look at the evening menu. The menu is super structured and easy to understand. I quickly realize that it´s not all about meat here. Vegetables are the protagonist of many of the creative dishes. Classics from different regions of the world are offered here ingeniously.

Restaurant Carl&Sophie - creative cuisine and high-quality ingredients

I opt for raw marinated kohlrabi with nasturtium and spicy goat quark as a starter. As a main course, I choose a fillet of beef with fresh baby spinach and crispy French fries. Finally, my boyfriend and I share a tasty cheese plate, whose delicate ingredients mostly land in my mouth. As an amuse-gueule, our friendly (and cute) waiter serves homemade sourdough bread with great nut butters. Both my appetizer and the main course are just fantastic. The filet is on point and makes my mouth water. Incidentally, I have a good time with one of my all-time favorites: Riesling.

Toby says … If you love creative cuisine and high-quality ingredients, Carl & Sophie is the right place for you. Here you can enjoy excellent lunch or dinner in a relaxed atmosphere. The charming service and the wonderful view complete your visit at this amazing venue.
