Enclosed by a garden fence adorned with vines, the restaurant is located in the vibrant heart of Kreuzberg, directly on the Landwehrkanal. Here, Sebastian Frank and his team unfold culinary masterpieces that make the heart of Austrian country cuisine beat. As part of a lavish renovation in 2021, both the guest rooms and the kitchen underwent a redesign. A previously hidden mural by Jim Avignon came to light and was even expanded by the artist himself. The symbiosis of art and culinary was already the focus of the past Exile days. The wood paneling and soft candlelight in the front of the restaurant create a cozy atmosphere. This understated elegance of the starred restaurant provides an exciting contrast to the unique, high-caliber taste explosions served here.
