I had a heavy breakfast and wasn't hungry despite having just climbed up the tower of St Michaelis church. I saw the restaurant when I walked out and noticed that they've won a gold medal for Labskaus! So I thought, I have to try it! So I ordered an appetiser portion of Labskaus and topped it off with a herring!... More

Held a business meeting at one of the tables, arrived 11am and left at 4pm. Had a wonderful lunch. The place is full of character. Top notch service. And, if you are male you must check out the "throne".

This place is pretty cool. You just immediately know upon entering this establishment that you have stepped into a classic. Gentlemen in white gloves will show you to your table and make sure that you are well attended over the course of your meal. There's a cigar bar upstairs and storied history to every nook, cranny and table in the... More

Service was very nice and very friendly. The place is also very interesting with wood and a maritime scheme everywhere. However of you are a vegetarian the options are limited. Food was plentiful, too much actually. But they will give you doggy bags. Decide for yourself, I myself would not go again..... But might be worth a visit if you... More

This restaurant is across the street from St Michael Church. The place is famous, many artists and politicians had been there, even they give you a page with what celebrity was seated in your table. Food and drinks were good.

Definitely worth to go. Food is delicious. Service is excellent and the waiters are friendly. I ordered a Labskaus recommended by the waiter, it's super delicious! Good value for money. The Rote Grütze dessert is also very nice. Even the restaurant was full the service was fast and outstanding friendly.

We reserved a table through Open Table and travelled across Hamburg for what promised to be a good evening. When we arrived they denied knowledge despite proof of the reservation. They were very dismissive and showed no interest in accommodating us. Very poor attitude

We booked this restaurant for our first evening and were not disappointed. Menu is not large but the food is good standard German fare but the ambience and history in the restaurant is great. Staff were friendly, helpful and then left us to it - did not push you to go, just happy to let you sit, drink and chat.... More

Had the veal schnitzel, was almost more than I could eat! Recommend reservations, as this was the second time we showed up and were told no room, (6ish wed), told we were Americans and we'd be out quick-got seated immediately and back out in less than an hour.

Iconic Hamburg restaurant. Friendly staff and pretty extensive menu. If you're there, then you've probably figured that they serve some Hamburg classics such as Labskaus. I tried it. It seemed authentic! Would definitely go back
