Restaurant Horváth

Emancipatory cuisine

Jeannine Kessler & Sebastian Frank

The Austrian has been behind the cooker of the traditional Austrian restaurant since 2010. He earned his first star in the Michelin Guide in 2011. After he and his partner Jeannine Kessler took over the restaurant in 2014, they and their team were delighted to receive their second star in November 2015. Since then, the trained hotel manageress has been running the business. In addition to their business, both have been involved since 2016 as co-initiators in the non-profit association "Die Gemeinschaft" (The Community) and are committed to a responsible approach to food and its producers.

An unconventional starred restaurant

Fenced in by a wrought-iron garden fence entwined with vines, our restaurant is located in the middle of the lively Kreuzberg district on the Landwehrkanal. Here, Sebastian Frank and his team serve creative dishes that are an essence of Austrian country cuisine. In the course of an extensive renovation in 2021, the guest rooms and the kitchen were renovated. A mural by Jim Avignon, which had been covered up since 2004, was uncovered and extended by the artist himself. Even in earlier times in exile, art and culinary delights played a central role. The wood-panelled walls in the front restaurant area and candles create a warm atmosphere and friendly ambience. The simple elegance of the unconventional star restaurant contrasts well with the individual taste experiences at a high level.

Gastronomy tradition

HORVÁTH - a restaurant with tradition. Our walls are steeped in history; after all, restaurants have been located in these rooms for almost 100 years. The address became famous when the Austrian philosopher and writer Oswald Wiener founded the "Exil" in 1973, which quickly became a hotspot for artists and cultural workers at the time. Here, people feasted and laughed, philosophised and drank, and anyone who sits in the room with the old wooden panels immediately senses that Kreuzberg nights can be very long...

Kreuzberg Flair on Paul-Lincke-Ufer

Along the lively Paul-Lincke-Ufer on the Landwehrkanal are numerous restaurants, cafés and small shops. A young, creative scene characterises the district, which is known beyond national borders for its multicultural atmosphere. Chef Sebastian Frank also occasionally strolls through the weekly market on Maybachufer opposite to buy fresh vegetables from regional farmers. In summer, guests dine in the idyllic, vine-covered front garden - a real insider tip in the midst of lively Kreuzberg life...
