We had lunch at Potters during a recent visit to Luebeck. We sat outside, which was nice, but aside from the view, Potters had nothing to offer during our visit. The service was particularly bad. We were seated and given a menu, but it was not for another 15 minutes that we actually saw our waitress. The food is basic... More

We ended up eating here on five consecutive nights and stopped for a drink every day we were in Lubeck. I presume that the owners have an interest in the schoolboy magician although there are just as many pictorial references to Tolkiens masterpiece inside. This is a deservedly popular riverside restaurant and on summer evenings tables can be hard to... More

Nice location by the river. Me and my partner both had a sirloin steak and it was absolutely tasty. I ordered a mushroom sauce on side which made my steak even better. Steak was served with potato and salad. I choose the traditional german jacked potato served with sour cream and chives. Very tasty as well. Staff was very polite... More

Good food and service. Right next to the river. When the weather is nice, its great to sit outside, chill & people watch.

With the rain threatening we choose this restaurant as it was close to our hotel. The decoration is rather strange (posters from Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings movies) but both the service and food was very good.My husband choose the sausage and asked for it to be served with potato salad instead of fries, while I had a...

Schnitzel or fresh spring vegetables - it's your choise. Service and welcoming is super. Two visits at this restaurant on a long weekend stay says it all. I really enjoyed this little pleasure for 5 senses both times.

A classic German restaurant. A lot of food for a good value. Kindly staff . Close to the head street along the channel. Charmy! Even the natives went here and that use to be a good sign!

Located on the An der Obertrave across the Salzspeicher, this place serves awesome sea-food. We were guided by the waitress on choosing our dishes as we spoke very little German. The favourite was mussels in wine and they really get you a huge bowl with numerous mussels. The quality and ambiance was just superb.
