Like Charlottenburg, in general, Brel reminds me of France, especially because of it’s location on beautiful Savignyplatz. The enchanting cobblestoned square, surrounded by great, old trees, restaurants and cafes. You feel special already standing there. You sense elegance and majesty. The location fits Brel perfectly (or Brel makes it even better),  it’s a true example of Berlin’s refinement.

Brel starts with pleasing you already in the early morning, you can come here for a delicious breakfast: croissants, crepes (pancakes), musli,  creamy yogurt with fresh fruits.. ( you can order breakfast the whole day), a chic lunch: parnship cream soup,chicken breast baked with tomatoes and mozzarella served with homemade pesto(lunch from 11am till 4pm)  In the evening you’re tempted by terrific cocktails and finest dinner: salmon carpaccio with pink pepper, sprinkled with lime and served with rucola or a big bowl of mussels bathed in white wine and tomatoes, served with a plate of pommes frites and mayonnaise..
In summer the atmosphere is much more wonderful  it’s warm and you sit outside, with the stars over your head, sipping your champagne, looking at your beloved one.. it’s really romantic too.

I fell in love with this place at the first sight (or at the first sip of their  fantastic champagne cocktail and a  bite of crème brulee..).

Mainly it’s a French cuisine. They have their constant menu (onion soup, prawns, frog’s legs, chevre chaud, oysters, salade nicoise, creme brulee…) but  they also  offer special daily dishes. You feel like in Paris but luckily you pay like in Berlin.

Berlin should be my second name- i like my name too much, however,Berlin is the love of my life. If I leave it than only to have a love affair with another place, but I'll come back. From rock n roll dives to posh champagne bars , open airs, flea markets, bookstores, concept stores, caffes etc- i ve been (almost) everywhere. It's an electric city powered by thousands of different, creative people and it offers infinite cultural possibilities. If u won't fall in love in Berlin like i did, don't miss your chance for a fling at least..
