The BULLEREI in Hamburg's Schanzenviertel was once a cattle market and is visibly stunning. with stylish but comfortable grey couches, 200 year old oak tables and a blue tiled bar. The restaurant is popular with gourmets, the in-crowd and beer drinkers who wax-lyrical about it. The food tastes amazing and prices are reasonable. The meat is cooked to perfection and the side dishes are delicious. The lunch menu offers wonderful meals for vegetarians. The staff are stylish and fashionable. They are cool, friendly and stand out from the crowd in their grey aprons.

Down to earth good food and atmosphere

We have visited Bullerei several times for lunch and you will always get a decent good and fun meal. This is a real casual atmosphere and don't expect to see Tim Mälzer, the famous chef / owner, or get top-notch service. Just enjoy the scenery within the lively Schanzenviertel, and sit either... read more

Hamburg has quite a bunch of restaurant which are mananged by " famous " TV cooks but this experience was definitely the worst. The service was bad , the food was medium and the price was high.

We had two sausages, a pork rip and a starter plate. Everything was good or okay. But nothing was really exciting. And for that it was way too expensive. We paid 100 euros for a starter and two mains.

The place is very nicely decorated (inside) and also has places to sit outside. They offer wide choice of beers and all meals look very delicious (and they are). The service is good. I would go there again.

We stopped for lunch on the recomendation of a friend and were glad we did. Although we do not speak German well, we were greeted and given explanations of the various dishes offered. I had this incredible salmon dish: grilled salmon and fennel on a bed of creamy risotto, garnished with generous amounts of fresh dill. It was perfect!

My wife and I ate a 3 course menu at Bullerei. The atmosphere in the restaurant is nice. The food was however not that nice. Both of us had a steak (of different sizes) and we both had ordered French fries as side orders. My steak came in two pieces (probably just to get exact amount of 250 grams )... More

They claim to have sensational steaks, I must say it is right. The location is a PLUS! it is the right spot for both business and private evenings. Quick tip, book in advance! without the right connection you won't get a table unless you book few weeks in advance.

Visited this rest during high season when the outdoor terrace was open with my family. We were lucky to get a table even though the place was completely full. The food was very good. We had a New Zeeland steak, a mozzarella salad and a Carbonara Pasta. Not a very wide selection of beer but the wine we had was... More

We went there 2 weeks ago with 4 young kids (we were 2 couples). The service was amazing, really friendly. The food was great. The atmosphere was perfect. exactly what we wanted, i.e. cool/casual/trendy/lively/ stylish. There are different part, one is more casual than the other one.

I visited the Bullerei, one of TV celebrity chef Tim Mälzer's venues, with hopeful anticipation. Located in Hamburg's hip Schanzenviertel, the old slaughterhouse-turned-restaurant has a nice ambience, with indoor and outdoor seating. Unfortunately, the food was rather underwhelming. Local and fresh ingredients alone did not transform the bland dishes of my 3-course surprise menu into a flavorful meal. "We order... More
