The place is just across the central train station. It feels both worrying and nice knowing the place is so very near the station. Everyhing I ate there tasted wonderful. I didn't wait for too long, even though the place was relatively crowded. The waitress who was attending my table was very nice and checked quite a few times if... More

As everybody agrees, this ancient place has grand atmosphere and fascinating décor. We also enjoyed the fine draft beers and good service from the hard-working staff. But we were let down by the food. Maybe it would be a different story if we had opted for the daily special of plaice (Euro 12.50) but we wanted a break from seafood... More

Food was good despite the menu was part in English and part in German. I ordered something I thought was crab but turned out to be something very different and this was with help from my German colleagues.

The Schiffer Borse has an impressive interior and cuisine to match. We had the salmon dish from the specials board and it was beautifully cooked and served. The whole dining experience was quality with attentive service from our waiter. Did not expect such high quality and don't be put off by the location across from the main train station Will... More

This restaurant is excisting since decades. This is something special and has some reasons. It is located opposite central station. Hotels are excisting in the neihgbourhood. City center is just some hundreds meters away. The ambience in this restaurant has a maritime character. The service was good friendly and attentive. I have ordered a mixed cold fishplate with fresh haring,... More

Our group dined on jager schnitzel, matjes hausfrau, and labskaus. With a few Holsten Pilseners and some rote grutze, the bill for three people to stuff themselves was less than €60. I very much enjoyed the maritime theme. Models of ships and artwork depicting various sea scenes complimented the wood furniture to simulate being on an old world ship. The... More

Right across from the main train station, a place to enjoy a tasty fish dish. I recommend to adventure yourself into trying the labskaus, I for one loved it, strangely unique! for those of us with a less adventurous spirit, the fried fish, the tiny nordsee prawns or something along those lines

When I say best of three restaurants we tried on Kirchenallee (immediately opposite Hauptbahnhof) I should say they were all good and also that Schiffer Borse was the most expensive of the three, but for the very good reason that my husband had Dover sole (35 euros) and we had a top-price bottle of French chardonnay (also 35 euros).
