Best Online Food Delivery Services in Berlin
Are you hungry but don’t fancy going out? Or is Berlin in lockdown again thanks to Covid-19?
Well, how about ordering food online instead of cooking another pack of pasta with tomatoe sauce?
Luckily Berlin offers a vast variety of food choices, you will find almost any cuisine imaginably.
And when it comes to food delivery the amount of choices is almost limitless as well.
Many restaurants have signed up with a food delivery service in order to bring you delicious food right to your door.
So why should you step out in the cold if you can order your food online in the convenience of your home?
Best Food Delivery Services Berlin
You have two choices when it comes to ordering food online.
Your first choice is that you know your favorite restaurant in Berlin has their own delivery service.
If this is the case just go to their website and order.
But most of the times your favorite small restaurant does not offer delivery service themselves.
In this case it comes in handy that there are food delivery services in Berlin like Lieferando or Wolt.
These food delivery services aggregate all restaurants on their websites and let you pay online without any hassle.
Delivery will be taken care of by their fleet of drivers, which are mostly racing through town on their bikes.
You will find anything you might crave from Sushi to Pizza, from Korean food to Baguettes.
Just browse through the websites and look for your favorite food.
When walking through Berlin these days you will see that most of the cyclist on the road either wear orange (Lieferando) or blue (Wolt).
While we personally prefer the stylish blue outfit of Wolt, the quality of service is as good as at Lieferando.
You might notice that Wolt has less choices when it comes to restaurants online.
However, and this is the cool part, Wolt is still quite new in Berlin and their approach has been to add more high quality restaurants rather than yet another mediocre pizza joint.
So if you fancy some real restaurant quality food we would rather look at Wolt first.
Payments are made online via their website or app same as with Lieferando.
And best of all, if you are ordering for the first time you can get a 6€ voucher using our friends recommendation code GJDSZ2C
No matter if you fancy Pizza, Sushi, Baguettes or some Indian food, Lieferando is most likely your best option to order food online.
With around 22.500 restaurants in Germany Lieferando is the biggest of the many food delivery services in Germany.
Naturally the bigger the city the more choices you will have.
So lucky for you that you are in Berlin and have an almost unlimited choice.
Ordering food online has never been easier, just enter your address, choose your favorite restaurant and food and pay online.
If you still own some Bitcoins you can even pay for your pizza with your cryptocurrency at Lieferando.
Freshly arrived in Berlin and already one of our favorite food delivery services.
UberEats may sound familiar if you have been travelling pre-Covid a bit.
Uber (the taxi company) had their onw food delivery service already pretty much anywhere but Germany.
But now they have arrived in Berlin with already a big selection of restaurants and covering a big part of Berlin.
If you haven’t tried them out yet we highly recommend using our refer a friend link to download the app and get 10€ off your first order.
Just make sure to enter the code “eats-vu37fk” during the checkout process.
So give it a try one of these days when the weather is bad and you crave some good food delivered home.

Out of business – Deliveroo
You all probably have seen those green bikers racing through the city already.
In case you could not catch who those daredevils were… They were the delivery fleet of Deliveroo, the second biggest food delivery service here in Berlin in 2019.
Similar to Foodora, which has been taken over by Lieferando, their focus was on delivering food from your favorite high class restaurants (rather than the usual cheaper delivery places) directly to your home.
So if you were in the mood for some fancy high quality food directly delivered to your doorstep Deliveroo was your go to website.
However, in late 2019 Deliveroo decided to withdraw from the German market and closed down all operations.
Out of business – Lieferheld.de
As a true Berlin based company Lieferheld offered a wide range of restaurants in and around Berlin.
All you needed to do is entering your address, choose your favorite restaurant and then pay online or cash on delivery.
On the Lieferheld website you were able to filter for the kind of cuisine you fancy today and see their avg. rating by other customers in the past.
Ordering food had never been easier and usually your food arrived after only 20-30 mins.
You might wonder why we are writing all this in the past tense.
Well Lieferheld and Pizza.de both have been aquired by their competitor Lieferando.
And while you are still able to visit the website we think that in the near future all traces of Lieferheld will disappear.
We will definitely miss you Lieferheld 🙂
Out of business – Pizza.de
Pizza.de had been one of our favorite food delivery services here in Berlin for many years.
Pizza.de offered you a wide variety of filters (e.g. avg. ratings, costs, etc.) in order to find your favorite restaurant online.
Similar to Lieferheld you paid cash on delivery or chose one of the many other ways to pay online, including paypal or credit card.
Pizza.de might have even been the oldest player in the online food delivery services market.
But after 10 years or so their fate is the same as that from Lieferheld and soon it will all disappear.
Order Food Online in Berlin
As you can clearly see more and more companies decided to give the German delivery market another try.
The only online food delivery company for quite some time operating in Berlin was Lieferando.
But now with new players such as Wolt and UberEats there is more choice and more competition, which usually means lower delivery fees.
In case that you can’t find your favorite restaurant online make sure to check out their website as some of the restaurants started to deliver with their own drivers.
And if the weather is nice and you got time why don’t you visit some of the great restaurants in Berlin instead of ordering?
