Service was very nice and very friendly. The place is also very interesting with wood and a maritime scheme everywhere. However of you are a vegetarian the options are limited. Food was plentiful, too much actually. But they will give you doggy bags. Decide for yourself, I myself would not go again..... But might be worth a visit if you... More

This restaurant is across the street from St Michael Church. The place is famous, many artists and politicians had been there, even they give you a page with what celebrity was seated in your table. Food and drinks were good.

Definitely worth to go. Food is delicious. Service is excellent and the waiters are friendly. I ordered a Labskaus recommended by the waiter, it's super delicious! Good value for money. The Rote Grütze dessert is also very nice. Even the restaurant was full the service was fast and outstanding friendly.

We reserved a table through Open Table and travelled across Hamburg for what promised to be a good evening. When we arrived they denied knowledge despite proof of the reservation. They were very dismissive and showed no interest in accommodating us. Very poor attitude

We booked this restaurant for our first evening and were not disappointed. Menu is not large but the food is good standard German fare but the ambience and history in the restaurant is great. Staff were friendly, helpful and then left us to it - did not push you to go, just happy to let you sit, drink and chat.... More

Had the veal schnitzel, was almost more than I could eat! Recommend reservations, as this was the second time we showed up and were told no room, (6ish wed), told we were Americans and we'd be out quick-got seated immediately and back out in less than an hour.

Iconic Hamburg restaurant. Friendly staff and pretty extensive menu. If you're there, then you've probably figured that they serve some Hamburg classics such as Labskaus. I tried it. It seemed authentic! Would definitely go back

This place, right opposite to St. Michael's church, offers great traditional food. Labskaus & fish are very good here although Labskaus is not a taste everyone will like. Friendly service and nice interior.

There's a cosy ambience about the place with a nautical theme that some might find kitsch but it does fit the traditional food and service - white gloved waiters, white linen, etc. The prices just seem to match a restaurant that serves creative and innovative cuisine rather than large portions of food that can be quite easily made at home...

Business trip to the city came here on a locals recommendation for something very different and authentically German, we weren't disappointed. Very vibrant room, busy but swift service. Started with herrings and cold meat, then my companion had a perfectly cooked dover sole whilst I had Labskaus which was all delicious. Washed down with a good crisp house white wine,... More
