I visited here with my friend who was visiting from Cameroon. We were never actually served. After waiting 20 minutes for the waiter to approach our table we decided to leave. We were met at the door by the waiter. I assumed he wanted to apologize however he asked if we were leaving and I said "yes we are, we... More

My friend and I decided to come in for a cake and coffee on a Thursday afternoon. We felt welcome by the two women but the male waiter was absolutely rude and we got the impression he did not want to serve us. After waiting and watching him pass our table many times we decided to leave and as we... More

Price-performance *** We stayed for coffee and cake at the restaurant "Zum Bäcker" on Blankenese’s beach road. This restaurant café is in a top location, and gets pretty much everything right. Courteous staff in sufficient numbers and great cake. The lunch and dinner menus seem appealing, too. Sitting on the terrace in the shade of an old, extended beech tree,... More

The location couldn't be better. Right in the heart of the Treppenviertel in Blankenese, at the waterfront. I have to admit that the way there at ,east by car is a bit tiring. Parking itself is a real mess. But once there you are rewarded by an amazing view on the river Elbe. If you are lucky you see some... More

I recently ate at this restaurant (for the first time) and was blown away by the friendly, helpful service we received from the moment we walked up the steps and were greeted like old friends by the waitress. We sat outside under the shade of the large tree which dominates the outside space, and enjoyed the view of the Elbe.... More

We ate here for lunch one day on the recommendation of a friend and were not disappointed. Despite my initial scepticism at the seafood menu the food was superb. I had a smoked salmon dish and my wife the "three fish" speciality dish recommended by Leah our excellent waitress. Both were exceptionally good. As an added bonus, the location on... More

Here you will find exceptional, simple, understated service and meals. From small to larger meals and house baked traditional German cakes the ingredients are fresh and well combined. Some traditional German meals have also been slightly modified to create exceptional tastes one would not expect in a small restaurant, which does not give any indication from the outside from what...

I was sitting outside on the terrace and enjoying the big ships passing by on the river Elbe. The very local dish "Labskaus" is very good and absolutely recommendable. And you should have Matjes Filets as a starter. They are really good. And there is nothing better than having a nice beer with it and afterwards an Aalborg Jubiläumsaquavit as... More

Definitely not your average tourist destination, however the views are well worth the drive. Best if you have a grasp of German, but you can do without - it's polite to at least be able to greet and thank the staff. My friend and I were seated in the best seat in the house - outside on the balcony. Prime... More
