We had a meal at Hanse Stube with friends whilst staying at the Excelsior Ernst. The food was on the whole ok but nothing special. A real low point was the turbot which came perched on top of what only can be described as a huge pile of dry sticky salty risotto. It was quite unpleasant. When it came time... More

Revisited last week. One disappointing dish, Dover Sole, and service not good on first night. Second night excellent food and service. Well worth the 1100 mile return trip drive.

Great booking service -- I booked Hanse Stube by calling in as I didn't see any tables available on the night and time i want. It went smooth. Great concierge service -- Because I wanted to give some flowers to my girl friend as a surprise, I asked how should I do it. It immediately referred me to the Concierge... More

Don't usually dine in the hotel we stop in but there are two superb restaurants here and we are glad we did! We had an aperitif whilst waiting for food - Hendricks G&T for me that must have been a double! We both chose a lobster and butternut starter dish and I went for the goose cooked in the traditional... More

From the moment we arrived we were treated like we were regular visitors to this restaurant a lovely warm welcome. The restaurant has a lovely ambuaince about it. The waiters very informative about the menus. The food was mouthwatering and the recommendations of the wines excellent. A tad expensive but worth it. Definitely get a return visit

Revisit dining with grandeur elegance. Opulent in the main hall & ritzy in the side quarters all oakwood panels. Can still clip the table napkin on your collar. Dedicated waiters assigned to each quarter to ensure guest have no confusion who's serving where. Food is a mix of French, German & Italian. Foie gras, beef consomme, fish with risotto &... More

Excellent food but mediocre service. There were plenty of friendly staff but they forgot to bring more water, another cocktail, and cappuccino.

All of our meals, including breakfast, lunch, & dinner were superb and the dining experience exceptional. The ambience of the dining room was tranquil and tastefully decorated in a stately refined 19th century European period. Service was extraordinary. The breakfast buffet was outstanding and the quality superb. There were so many delicious offerings including meats, smoked fish, omelets, pastries, breads,... More
