Furnished in an elegant and modern style, the focus of the restaurant is the open kitchen, where guests can watch the chefs preparing a variety of dishes in wood ovens and on the lava grill. From 27th September to 5th October, the standard menu will be complemented by authentic Japanese cuisine, as Hirokazu Nakazato, chef at the Park Hyatt Hotel Tokyo is joining the team at Apples Restaurant and extending the repertoire with original Japanese dishes and sushi recipes. A regular programme of special events includes a sushi cooking course on 4th October, when the Japanese chef will introduce participants into the secrets of making sushi.

Quick Dinner

I had quick dinner after I've checked in to the hotel. Service is very helpful and nice although bit slow. The food was fresh and good and I enjoyed my meal. Although I think it's overpriced.

You have no idea about portion's size. So follow the waiter recommendations. But that was double what possible to eat.

If you like an international style breakfast with a German twist this is the place. Wonderful selection of delicacies including my favourite Mett. Highly recommend it for somewhere to go on Sunday.

Quite som misunderstandings with regards to the order, especially the appetizers, ok service, and the main course was good, although accessories were quite weak. Ok experience, but not great.

We were lucky enough to be in Hamburg at the height of Spargel (white asparagus) season. My husband who is from Hamburg had told me for years about this special time of year and the traditional menus. We decided to try the Spargel menu at Apples, as it featured locally-sourced produce. The meal was simple, showcasing the fresh asparagus and... More

We got a table near the kitchen and we could almost smell the whole menu. One should try to get a table as far away form the kitchen as possible..

Absolutely everything about this restaurant screams high class. It's a modern and impressive looking place, it has an open kitchen where you can see your food being prepared (by very young and yet incredibly competent kitchen staff), a good wine list and a fantastic menu. Service is attentive yet not intrusive and the general attention to detail is excellent. In... More

We celebrated my husband's 40th birthday at Apples, had lobster and scallops as starters, and shared a big porterhouse steak as main course. Scallops were absolutely a dream. Fresh, delicate, and beautifully seared to perfection. Lobster with avocado and saffron mayonnaise was equally delicious. The porterhouse steak was honestly quite juicy and tender, however, not so impressive like the starters,... More
