Excellent food but a little understaffed

The restaurant is built in a green-house like structure with loads of glass and green. The lighting in the evening creates an open and natural atmosphere that fits perfectly with the spanish music that is being played.

The place is nice with a good atmosphere, the servers are friendly and quick to take care of your needs. The food was ok, however in my experience, good tapas is tough to make due to the need to balance the Grease and the sauce, they just didn't manage. I would give them a second chance though. P.S. Avoid the... More

Very nice food and service. Different tapas must be tasted and I recommend the shrimps. Do not forget to order a tasteful sangria. Deserts are perfect!

Very nice restaurant at walking distance of the Gastwerk hotel. When you like to go out for tapas to be conbined with some nice wines, Altamira is the place to go.

We've been meaning to go to this restaurant for years but never managed it. I'd read some reviews that said it was really noisy and slow service but also had heard from friends that it is really great so we decided to give it a go. We weren't disappointed. Yes, it was very loud, but you get that when somewhere... More

I have eaten here on 2 occasions now and each time I have been amazed at the quality of the food considering you're not in Spain. On both occasions I dined with a party of 10+ people after work having reserved a table in advance. Yes the restaurant is busy and yes it appears to be somewhat chaotic, however in... More

An expansive, convivial meeting space. A bit crazy - but seemed well organized. We had reserved a table - which turned out to be not quite large enough - a change was effected with no problem. So many choices for tapas! Presentation was fine (but some of them - garlic shrimp in particular, really had too much oil). Still -... More

If you are just visiting Hamburg for a few days I would recommend you to go somewhere else. This is not a place to go for a romantic dinner with your couple. It`s more a place to go with friends or colleagues. If you are expecting real Spanish tapas this place might disappoint you. However the "tapas" are good, tasty... More

This is a very popular Tapas restaurant/bar which is understandable considering the quality of the food and the reasonable prices. Unfortunately this popularity has a downside - the staff are overloaded and accordingly the service is very slow. Waiting nearly 30 minutes to have a drinks order taken after arrival is not acceptable. The only thing that prevent me leaving... More
