This place is one of the typically nice bistros in Hamburg, in my opinion. Tasty meal, speedy service, polite manager and excellent atmosphere. Thanks, Arkadasch!

Restaurant appears nice and is very close to university campus. Food is good - however the service is appalling. We booked a large group in advance and were told that we must place our order via google forms. Totally acceptable but difficult to know what to order a week in advance. On arrival we were some time waiting for food.... More

Had the canelloni and chevré burger. Enjoyed the university atmosphere around the square on the outside. They should invest in a better coffee machine.

I had a nice lunch break sitting outside this laid-back restaurant. Good selection of salads with fresh ingredients; dressing can be quite heavy but you can easily ask to have your salad plain. Professional albeit not very prompt service.

The atmosphere is friendly as are the staff. The food is decent but nothing special. I went there a couple of times recently and it always maintains the same standard. It is very convenient for the cinema opposite.

I went back after many years after having been here often when I was living in Hamburg. Nothing has changed: the food is very good and at very fair rates, the service remains excellent, friendly, professional, yet charming and humorous, they serve the best Apfelschorle you can imagine (applejuice with sparkling mineral water), and the crowd is intellectual/ student type....

Abaton bistro in Grindelhof 14a is a colloquial local area German pub with a large menu. Do not espect super fine food, but a decent and abundant meal. Staff is very helpful and you can change the menu, as you like. Good beer, good choice of wines, relatively low prices. Take Metrobus 4 or 5 from central station or Jungfernstieg... More

If you are in Hamburg and want to see a film in English, the Abaton Kino is the place to go...but first (or after!) you should eat at the Abaton Bistro next door. The menu offers lots of interesting things to eat.....Goat cheese gnocchi with ratoutille, pizza with Chorizo, were our choices and they didn´t disappoint. The salads are also... More

On a business trip, looked for a place to have dinner. Found this place while waling and entered. Nice hospitality, nice waiters. ordered a pizza and wine. Don't remember the name of the pizza, but surprisingly it was the best pizza I've ever tasted. The creme Brulet at the end was fantastic as well. Prices are fair!
