In a former iron foundry near Hamburg’s notorious redlight district, east blends gastronomy, hospitality and nightlife around a three-storey high restaurant and courtyard terrace called “Dedon Island”. Four pillars tower divide the restaurant area. Here, at the east restaurant, creativity never ends. Ingenious creations, born of the traditional, european cuisine, some of them mild and spicy embedded in asian fragrances and condiments, let your soul swing. Hamburg’s new and exquisite meeting- and melting-point.

The restaurant has an amazing interior, location just behind the infamous Reeperbahn, very popular among locals (trendy and "it" place to visit), we did not book a table and waited over an hour in the waiting list to get seated. The menu is surprisingly not only "eastern" but has some western influences. The western part of the menu was good:... More

We went to eat at East after we had been refused a table when we stayed in a Suite a year earlier. We though everyone deserves a second chance so we booked a table for Sushi. The look and style of the hotel is of course really impressive and we loved the professionalism of the staff. The soup was very... More

Great food, most of us had steak and sushi and all of it was amazing. The choices of sides and the way the food was prepared and presented shows the quality of the kitchen. One exception: do not order the Wiener Schnitzel- it is good but I guess Hamburg is too far away from Wien to make it really good...... More

East Restaurant is part of the East Hotel in a back street of Hamburg's "red light" and party zone "Reeperbahn". The restaurant is adjacent on the lower level of the bar and some of the seating areas appear a little dark but we had the benefit of a nice table in the all fresco area. The whole place radiates a... More

A must when going to Hamburg. 3 for sushi and 1 for steak. Great quality food, well prepared and well served. Great range of wines. Only but was that the waitor was not observant as you would expect - but is was busy that evening.

Menu was vast and there are so many delicious options. I went with a more traditional dish (which was very tasty) but some of the more on-trend dishes looked truly amazing. Oddly I found the beer selection a little limited but overall it was very good. Restaurant decoration sure has the WOW factor!

Really nice set-up. The personnel is courteous, knowledgeable and smiling. The sushi is extraordinary. The service can be a little slow, but the quality of the food makes you forget about it.

The East is a very nice and modern restaurant with a wide variety of menu choices. On this evening we had the sushi and it was definitely fresh and of good quality. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful. A great place to spend as a couple or to conduct business.

The interior is amazing- it looks great and exclusive but without being affected.It's a mixture of hanseatic coolness and german gemuetlichkeit influenced of japanese style. The cocktailbar instead of that is affected but lovely. everything is pink plush covered. the food is perfect arranged and the sushi and sashimi are probably the best you can get in Hamburg
