Grill Royal will have meat lovers froth­ing at the mouth.

Noth­ing can com­pare with a great steak. Hilda Hoy headed to one of Ber­lin’s most famed spots to try some­thing juicy and medium-rare.

Food trends may come and go, but a good, juicy steak will never go out of style. At Grill Royal, one of the most talked-about culi­nary hotspots in the city, meat is clearly the star of the show, per­haps only ri­valled by the star-stud­ded clien­tele that is known to flock here.

The meat- lovers’ hotspot in Mitte is clad head to toe in un­der­stated chic. It sits di­rectly on the Spree River, and dur­ing the warm summer months, ta­bles are set up on the wa­ter­side ter­race. A seat in­side, how­ever, might grant an equally prime view of the gleam­ing glass-front re­frig­er­a­tors show­ing off a se­lec­tion of prime beef cuts. Dur­ing the Berli­nale film fes­ti­val ev­ery Fe­bru­ary, the res­tau­rant is a par­tic­u­lar celebrity mag­net, draw­ing the likes of Scar­lett Jo­hans­son, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Ge­orge Clooney. But at any time of year, the real rea­son to come is not for stargaz­ing, but to in­dulge in some­thing de­lec­ta­ble off the grill.

From Ger­many to Aus­tralia, Ar­gentina to the United States; from Chateaubriand to T- bone, en­trê­cote to porter­house: Grill Royal takes pride in serv­ing the finest meats and cuts, cooked to per­fec­tion by the mas­ter­ful staff. But even at a place like this, man does not live on meat alone: the menu also in­cludes del­i­ca­cies like sal­mon tartare, the finest oys­ters and lob­ster cock­tail, tempt­ing sides and sauces, and even se­lec­tions for vege­tar­i­ans. What­ever you order, the som­me­lier will deftly guide you through the house se­lec­tion of more than 800 wines. Friedrich­str. 105b. T: 030 28879288. www.grill­royal.com
