Le Canard has one Michelin star which is what made us go there. It is located in an upscale neighborhood with a few offices and mostly residences as neighbors, which is somewhat unusual for a restaurant. Once you walk in you are greeted by a stunning view of the river Elbe and a huge shipyard. At night this makes for... More

The whole dinner was wonderful from start to finish with excellent choices of food and wine. Service was prompt and very friendly. Two downsides though. The menu was handwritten and barely readable and if you are not German, there is no way you can decipher it! Another thing was that the chairs really do not belong is such an excellent... More

We were all excited by the reviews and the good location. Got there on time and were served promptly by nice people who took our coats, showed us to our table and served us well all night. However, the food?... suffice it to say that I regularly have tastier food in the mall. Just don't bother. They are very expensive... More

One of my few favourites in Hamburg - great food and wines, matching service level. As mentioned before - reservation ( sometimes a very advanced one ) is recommended as due to my observations they do only one sitting per day . Keep returning and never been disappointed.

We have been there a couple of times now and the eveneings where always first class! The prices match the quality of the food and the wines, but it is really worth it. Reservation is needed. I recommend to visit the restaurants... More

Can't beat this view! Ask for a window seat when you reserve a table and you'll be treated to an incredible sunset. Ships passing by while the staff provides excellent service. It is a bit expensive, but perfect for a romantic night. They also have a group room and I've had business dinners here that we're wonderful. Overall - a... More

We were advised to go to this restaurant by a friend who drove up from her home in Willmenrod to join us. We were told that the chef was on television, so didn't expect to actually see him there, but we did. (Not like American and British chefs who merely seem to lend their names and hardly darken the doors... More

This restaurant, while expensive, is fantastic. The service, the setting, the view of the Elbe and the freeport and most importantly the food makes this place one of my favourite restaurants. We had the 6 course tasting menu and they were very accommodating indeed. While i love shellfish, normal fish is not my cup of tea, and they kindly organised... More
