Hamburg locals love this place for the views of Lake Alster. We loved it as well for the same thing as well as the excellent breakfasts. The restaurant has a limited menu (nothing lical German) and is pricey and so is the bar of the same name. A good place to go for special occasions or if you are staying... More

Le Ciel is a very nice place to end your day in Hamburg, overlooking the water and enjoying a cocktail or an aperitif at the bar, just before dining. The staff were very courteous and helpful. We walked in without reservations, and they did their best to accommodate us, initially at the bar and then got us a table at... More

I was only visiting Hamburg for one night, en route through Europe, to Norway. As it was my travelling companion's birthday, I wanted to surprise him with a special dinner. This was special!!!! Le Ciel is on the 9th floor of Le Meridien Hotel. Wonderful view, tasteful decor, impeccable service and excellent food! We both had the Menu du Chef,... More

Took some clients here for dinner. Great place to go for a panoramic view of the City. The restaurant it self is a little bland and plain (maybe modern & not to my taste) but otherwise it was all pretty good. Food quality was fine; menu a little limited but not really exciting and the service was efficient. Nothing wrong... More

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.
