A new kind of groundedness. Right in the heart of Berlin.
We are delighted to announce that after only six months since opening GOLVET and its team led by Björn Swanson & Michael Schulz were awarded a Michelin star.
A restaurant at the very heart of Berlin and offering views of the skyline at Potsdamer Platz bids you a warm welcome: GOLVET. This is a place where precise culinary creations and purist design define a dining experience that is unique throughout the city. Björn Swanson and his team serve you regional, seasonal and creatively interpreted dishes in an interior that celebrates paired-back luxury and heightens one’s awareness of the essential.
Restaurant manager and sommelier Benjamin Becker enriches your culinary enjoyment with a wine menu arranged according to aroma and character, as well as innovative non-alcoholic accompaniments to our dishes. The GOLVET is rounded off with an impressive bar featuring a 13-metre-long counter top. Here bar manager Andreas Andricopoulos impresses our guests with his contemporary and timeless signature drinks.
Berlin’s culinary highlight
GOLVET stands for uncompromising, ingredient-driven cuisine that eschews short-lived trends and gimmickry. Classic basics, intelligently interpreted and paired with Asian influences, reveal a universe of flavour that offers our guests greater variety and is based on an ethos of sustainability and ethical awareness. Our respect for nature governs everything we do. We forge new paths, dispense with a “one menu” philosophy and offer a six-course tasting menu, an a-la-carte selection, and creative snacks at the bar, for up to 80 guests an evening.
Cosmopolitan drinking culture above the city’s rooftops
The GOLVET implements a unique concept whose aesthetic and flavours draw on the worlds of Northern and Central Europe. The “North Sea-Baltic Sea Journey”, consisting of ten specially designed signature drinks, represents both our particular recommendation and a tour of the countries bordering these seas. Whether it’s a German Kreuzberger Mokka, a Finnish Lapin Veri, or a Belgian Princess Charlotte – our bar caters to every taste.
With its experienced staff, valuable expertise from some of Germany’s leading restaurants and bars, and uncompromisingly enacted passion for food and drink, the GOLVET team works tirelessly on behalf of our guests. We offer a perfectly balanced and holistic range of services – from the welcome guests receive when entering, through to our menu, and including that final drink at the bar or on our terrace.

spectacular, while the Golvet’s interior combines modern, purist design with real metropolitan flair in the most pleasing manner.
Bei der Planung des Interieurs stand das Panorama im Mittelpunkt. Um die bunt beleuchtete Architektur der Gegend im Restaurant wirken zu lassen, wurde die Einrichtung konsequent dunkel gehalten. Der Effekt kann sich sehen lassen. Denn: Mehr Manhattan gibt es in Berlin nicht!Signature Places
Grounded, but superior. The Golvet is already at the very top of its game. Björn Swanson has returned to his native Berlin to give the city the gift of an impressively contemporary restaurant.tip Berlin
