Dinner last night with friends. The server was pleasant but not very skilled. Highlight was the eel soup. Salad was decent. My dinner was blah. Dover Sole was a winner. Although we were on the water the fish was pretty bland. No one in my party would return.

Accustomed to eating the fish of the Ionian sea that dances still in the pot, I was forced by his friends to have this experience with the fish of the north sea. The evening was positive for both the local and the fish plentiful and tasty as can be that of the north sea. Television we would have done without... More

We just called in on the off chance. It was Friday evening we went to the upstairs restaurant after discussing where to eat with the waiter downstairs, he suggested we would like the view from upstairs. There were no coach tours whilst we were there. We chose the fish platter (no persuasion as some other reviewers have mentioned) we asked... More

On Hamburg's waterfront there are dozens of restaurants and it is difficult to chose. Fischerhouse is a large establishment which caters to larger parties of tourists. The menu has a great list of fish dishes and the one's we tried were prepared well. BUT the service is less than attentive....after all, they cater to large groups, who are unlikely to... More

The restaurant looks nice, but food and service was bad. Fish was dry, either not fresh and/or grilled to long. Staff tries hard to sell the expensive 2pers. fish platter.

This is a classic fish restaurant, based in a historic building in a prime location on Hamburg’s waterfront. Unfortunately, it seems to trade entirely on this. The other components that go to make up a good restaurant: food, service and atmosphere, are clearly not priorities for the management. The dishes at the bottom end of the menu clearly belong there,... More
