We ate here twice and were enchanted by the owners enthusiasm for the history of the restaurant and her passion for German cuisine. We had the best wiener schnitzel I have ever had and I am dreaming of the day I can return to experience the great food and ambiance of this so essentially Hamburg institution. Delightful and delicious!

Came here for New Years Eve, restaurant was fully booked, but they managed to fit us in, which was a table for 7. They looked after us all night and cooked us a five course meal with champagne, even though the kitchen should have been closed at that time. So they saved our New Years Eve! One of us left... More

We took a day trip from Odense, Denmark to visit Hamburg. It was late in the afternoon when we finally stopped for lunch. We happened upon this little gem. The staff was very helpful and nice to us. She translated the menu for us so we could pick something yummy to eat. My friend had the fish and I had... More

Great find close to where we were staying a small homely welcoming family run establishment with a real authentic flavour of Germany. The wienersnitzel was knockout as was the pork knuckle! My only advice is come here ravenous!

Honestly, this place was not so easy to find. - for me - The meals are delicious and served nicely arranged; It's a rustic place and kind of romantic too. Waiters very friendly; Feels almost like being in a restaurant of the late 19th century. Very cool!

There's a special word in German that has no direct translation in English. "Gemuetlich" is the feeling of being at home. This restaurant instantly felt comfortable and welcoming. The ambiance was outstanding. It is a little hard to find this gem as it is tucked away from the main street in a charming cobblestone alleyway that provides some welcome shade... More

Excellent location; it is located close to the city centre and Hafencity. Ambient design and decoration is very interesting and very 'hanseatic'. Good food and excellent service; friendly, direct and warm.

This establishment dates back to 1633. It sits at the base of a large building so may take a few looks to find it. But it is worth it! The most recent owners have kept the charm - dark beams candles, wooden tables. I had the baked cheese appetizer and classic weinerschnitzel that were both perfect. It's a limited but... More
