Organic ("bio") and health food restaurant. Vegetarians would probably be happy to know that if they don't mind eating with carnivores, there are many vegetarian dishes on the menu.

BioBerlin is a German Language blog discussing all aspects of healthy living and eating in Berlin. Although we personally haven't been to the restaurant, we agree with BioBerlin about this being an oasis in Potsdamer Platz, only from knowing the other cheesy places in this otherwise culinary desert. We'll free translate the main points of BioBerlin's review: The restaurant is somewhat hidden near the Casino in Potsdamer Platz. The idea behind it: healthy, fresh cuisine. There are wholegrain pastas, salads, also the regular mundane stuff but very tasty wok-dishes. The most important thing is that all dishes are fresh, healthy and low in calories. The coolest thing: the meat is organic! They don't write it anywhere, and only after we've asked, they said that the meat as well as many other ingredients are organic, including for example an organic beer. The food was good, it was quickly prepared, the service was very cordial. The prices are affordable: the main dish costs 7 EUR.
