I visited this restaurant in September and ordered the soup of the day and the pan fried Salmon. First the restaurant was super noisy for 2100. There was a large group of young gentlemen who were basically partying it up. They were so loud that I couldnt even hear my wife next to me. The staff did nothing about it.... More

The breakfast at "Le Ciel" is the perfect combination of great food, good service and an amazing view. Try to arrive early to secure one of the tables along the huge windows to have an unobstructed view onto the Außenalster. Then just take your time and watch the sailboats while enjoying your breakfast.

Very posh bar/restaurant with an amazing view on Hamburg lake. I spent there a couple of quick dinners during my business stay. Food variety is fair (I got a club sandwich and a cheese burger), portions are huge and beer is fine. But the best part of the menu is about whiskeys: the paradise if you’re an enthusiast, I found...

We ate twice in the restaurant, once with a 4-course Christmas menu and once with the regular ala carte menu and had a lovely experience both times. Excellent service, spectacular food and wine. There is a bar section that we did not try, that apparently serves more modest menu items including burgers, but the restaurant is haute cusine. Both enjoy... More

After an exhausting day of shopping or sightseeing is this the place to "Chill out". The beautiful view over the Außenalster lake with a delicious cocktail is a wonderful mix to start an evening. You can chat along while soft music plays in the background. Trendy, airy design invites you to linger and the minutes fly by. Helpful but not... More

A large group of us had dinner here, the service was riddled with attitude, the food was overpriced and over salted, and basically not great. The only bonus was a good view for a lightening storm. Would not recommend.

Breathtaking views over the Alster from our table were accompanied by a four course treat, with wine accompaniment. Definitely a recommendation for special occasions. Staff were helpful and friendly, and the food was delicious. The set menu cost 80 € pp, which may be steep for some budgets, but since this was a birthday/new job celebration, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
