One of Berlin's most fashionable haunts, Spindler and Klatt is a laidback riverside restaurant by day, which specialises in chilled out tracks and cocktails. By night however this converted warehouse reveals it's Mr. Hyde side and the dancefloor opens at 2300 to allow hard-hitting house, trance and techno DJs to steal the show. The out of the way location in Friedrichshain ensures that only a cool, in the know, crowd party here, and the sheer splendour of the venue is sure to leave a big impression on the first time visitor. Recommended.

Killermann! I can not believe you have paid 426.- for a night at a club like this! and the other ones who had commented about this place, don't you think it is to expensive? I guess not! Oh God 426.-. It is almost equal to an avarage wage of a worker here! but i have to tell that you are a little "tight purse" :) You could have at least 20.- paid to the waiter :)
One week ago on a friday me and 6 friends went to this restaurant / club.
Very nice place at the Spree river, terrace partly in the water. Insight a big (trendy) space for a good party, although it was more top-40 music the DJ played.
First of all the food: we ordered a big plate with all kinds of entrees, but the sate was cold, also the other entrees with meat. Maybe it had to be like that, but I like it more hot.
We we're still eating from the big plate and then some other waitress (than the one who was serving us from the start) arrived with the main courses(?).
She had to ask another waitress to make som space on our table. I noticed her that we had just finished our entrees. You don't make people feel welcome when you serve the food with that kind of haste, is it???
She said she would send the manager, but then our first waitress came to the table and explained that it was her fault because she gave orders to the kitchen. Ok, we accepted that and didn't make a problem out of it, but eventually half of the food on the main dishes (which was good!) was not eaten because we had just finished the entrees. That was a pity...
After the main courses some of us ordered a cappuccino. When serving, it look like a cappuccino but it wasn't. I can not imagine that the don't know how to make a cappuccino, but once again, we didn't make a problem about it.
Serving the wine during our diner was good, no comments about that.
Then the best part comes; when paying the bill I gave a tip of 9 euro's on a total of 426,- euro's, because I wasn't satisfied in general about our visite at Spindler & Klatt.
Then the waitress tells me that in our country (Netherlands) you give a lower tip than in Germany, because they are used to gave 8-10%.
I know that it isn't much, but considering that half of our bill consisted of the price for the main courses which was half eaten, the plate with entrees was +/- and the cappuccino was very bad, I think she can not order me to tip 8-10 %. How brutal and agressive!
Also, in the Netherlands we are used (and I think in many other countries too) when something is going wrong in the service, you reduce the bill with a bottle of water for example. That didn't happen.
Eventually she didn't take the tip of 9 euro and I payed the 426,- euro.
So, I think it is a nice place to go to, but beware when it's very busy (all the tables we're occupied), because our experience is they can not overlook the situation!!!
The service and food was excellent! We had a wonderful evening!
Our receptionist at the Circus Hotel recommended this restaurant and it certainly did not disappoint. From the moment you arrive your senses are alive to something quite different to any other culinary experience you have had before. Industrial it may be but the feel is softened by the sheets of silk hanging from the walls. The beds are imaculate, the staff really warm and welcoming. The food could have been a let down and I still would not have been disappointed but even here the standards were of the highest quality, the fillet beef being as good as I ever had. The gents toilets are the most unusual experienced and the music brilliant. Must go back soon as this was my best food experience ever!!!
Great food and excellent club!!!
this club is of the chain
