On September 3rd I went to have dinner at Slowman during my first visit in Hamburg. I was amazed when I walked through the reception/bar, which is huge and amazing looking.

I went to Slowman because I didn't want to venture out from my hotel. This was a mistake. There are much better choices within 1 block. I ordered the 3 course dinner, a beer and asked for water. The beer never came. The water cost EUR5.5 The food was nothing special - especially for the price. It was convenient but... More

Went to Slowmans as Tripadvisors have been predominantly extremely positive. Deeply disappointed. Food reasonable, but definitely at the best only 2 out of 5 based on quality and price. Ambience dull. Less than half full even on a Saturday night.. We were told that the Chef was in to live music and would personally entertain with his guitar and voice.... More

This review is about the Slowman restaurant as it is currently Feb/2015 in Hamburg. As Slowman will move to another location we really hope that they do not change significantly and that the new location is as relaxing as the current one. We have been to the Slowman restaurant during the week on a Monday. Although going out on a... More

We spent the saturday evening dinner there with local live music. The saturday menu (4 courses) was very delicious, very fresh and local! Service stuff was exceptionally friendly; location ist quite funny since it is over several floors.

Slowman in Hamburg uses good quality ingredients to prepare its dishes. For dinner there are fixed three course menus for €35,- (you can add a fourth). Veggies can also have dinner here, but there will be no tofu or cheese or soy replacement for meat. So it is all vegetables, well prepared, but in I my opnion a bit too... More

On a Saturday night there is a fixed 4 courses menu (with choice btw fish or meat for main course). The starter was uninspired sushi rolls with a very tasty little soup. Then followed a nice but slightly overcooked ravioli with mushrooms. For the main course we had both chosen the meat (pork fillet) which was very overcooked and dry... More

We went on a wednesday, got there at about 9h30 pm, we were told this was the lastest we could get there for dinner. The only option was to have the special menu, so we chose tomato salad, mushroom ravioli and fish plate. All of them were very tasty. Would go back again!

We chose to eat here due to the ethos of developing young people, and enjoyed the service and the ambience of the restaurant. The food didn't quite match up to the reviews we had read, perhaps we hit an off night for the kitchen.....

Found this lovely restaurant by accident in the fantastic Chile Haus building. Being from Wales we knew nothing of Slowman in Germany. We were welcomed and well looked after. This food was beautifully prepared and served. Only criticism would be price of bottles of wine on the menu. 39 Euro as cheapest with a competitively priced menu. That's too high.
