This place truly lives up to it's name: schönes Leben. Schnitzel was superb. It was served with cucumber salad, and turned out to be very refreshing. Curry wurst was a bit spicy - exactly the way it should be. Portions were big, but don't let it scare you; food is light and you will definitelly want to try more. Staff... More

We stopped here for lunch as it had stopped raining and we could sit outside in the sun. We were given the menus and our drinks fairly quick but then it became a little hard to get in contact with the waiter as there were quite a few people at the outside tables. We ordered a fish and a Labskaus... More

We came for a quick lunch, got some starters, bottle of wine and nice main courses. All was tasty, we esplecially enjoyed herring. Value for money is very good here. The only thing to improve were waiting times for the main course to be served, we had to wait for ca 20 min after we finished our starters.

Staff were friendly and helpful despite having to serve in English. Currywurst was exactly what I hoped for and a generous portion for about €13.

We had a family lunch in this restaurant where we go each time we are in Hamburg. And each time, we are all happily satisfied and we leave the restaurant. : ) I had the wiener schnitzel with potato salad and it was excellent. But the highlight is the desert which is the real reason why we go there: these... More

The service, food and location were really nice. They also have a special menu for vegetarians and vegans. Some of the decoration can even be bought.

Excellent quality food but not cheap. Staff are friendly and helpful, make sure you book a table as it seems to be a very busy restaurant. My hubby and i both had the house burgers and they were really nice especially with the curly fries.
