Went there for business dinner. The service was excellent, punctial and fast. I ate tuna as main dish which was very very good but a bit pricey. The restaurant also has a nice view of the docks and the wine list is quite decent.

Excellent food, wines and top service. Try the antipasta mix as a starter. The Lamb Hallibut was really nice

It's the second time that we have been to this restaurant. I hope the last. I agree that if you want to sit close to the river you have to pay the price. Especially in Hamburg. This doesn't meen that you can afford a poor service... We were 5, business relaxed dinner. Booked a table. When we arrived, only the... More

We sat outside for lunch here. The food was fresh and well cooked - simple and tasty. The mixture of fish plate was especially good. The restaurant is right on the harbour and gives a good view - although it is a view of large merchant vessels, but I liked that. It appears to be inside a converted warehouse and... More

We sat outside watching various boats and ships cruise by whilst enjoying a lovely róse and beautifully cooked and presented turbot with mushrooms, potatoe cubes with a lovely pancetta sauce.

This place is directly beside the FischMarkt in Hamburg. The entrance is a bit tricky to locate because it looks like an entrance to an office building, but is actually the restaurant. IF Hamburg has nic weather, seat on the balcony. U can see ships, ferry's and other boats go by. Service is good, food is excellent. Medium price category.... More

The restaurant is well located ( next to the fish market) with a beautiful view, nicely decorated and the atmosphere is quite good... But the dishes aren't impressive, the pasta was good but the main course quite mediocre( I ordered fish). The service was really bad, the waiter kept us waiting for about an hour after the first course and... More
