Despite the cheeky name that means "house of pleasure", this is a restaurant that serves decent local dishes in a nice atmosphere. It is popular with locals and tourists alike and reservations are recommended. Its proximity to Hamburg's famed night life district makes it an attractive place to visit and it is suitable for small to large groups. Perhaps a... More

I was in this restaurant with friends for Dinner. The place is totally crazy decorated and the staff ist friendly and funny. You have to make reservations. The food ist simply great and the portions are big. If you are a cigar or pipe or cigarrette snoker, after the meal they have a smoking bar around the corner with perfect... More

Ambiance was dramatic with dark reds and large framed pictures of bare ladies. Food was just what I had expected (and wanted being in German), Big and homely but delicious, service was great. This Restaurant is a must if you visit Hamburg!

Six of us went to Hamburg to visit Miniature Wunderland. We booked this restaurant by email before we left from the UK. Our table was ready when we arrived and the food was excellent. The wines were recommended by our host and complemented the food perfectly. Service was exceptional. I think we were one of the first groups to arrive... More

Went in looking for an authentic meal. I had the veal schnitzel, which was ok. My sister, the vegetarian, had these odd balls filled with quark and chives...she was trying to be adventurous but she really didn't care for them. They were odd. My mom had something listed on the menu as "Rudolph" (venison). She liked hers quite a bit.... More

We had booked so no problems with tables etc, brilliant and efficient front of house, equally matched by the kitchen team. Good choice and quality available with that ever efficient German system "would you like an English menu!" This was the third time I have eaten here, Dinner for two, dinner for four and the dinner for 22!. They are... More

I picked this restaurant with a friend due to its location close to the Reeperbahn from reviews on Tripadvisor. We definitely weren't disappointed. The ambience, the service and the food were spot on. I'd recommend you to go if you're looking for a filling, tasty meal.

Freudenhaus was pretty close to where we were staying and it got good TA reviews, so off we went. It was rather dark inside with heavy and unusual decorations. It was quite warm inside and the small table in the corner did not help. Service was prompt and the waitress was perky (bordering on excess) and spoke English well. We... More

Loved the meal - only thing was that there was too much. I had the veal in mushroom sauce which I'd thoroughly recommend. Loved the service too, the two ladies running the place were buzzing about making sure we were happy. The only downside was that it was quite a hot and muggy day and there was a lack of... More
