Once a year business brings me to Hamburg and I get the chance to dine at this fine restaurant. Of course it is not cheap but for me it is worth every cent. Outstanding cuisine, superb service and a jolly atmosphere. A perfect (and long) night of fine food and wine.

Possibly the most complete eating experience I have ever had, and I've had quite a few. Certainly not cheap but I admire the workmanship. The menu is essentially two fixed menu options, with either 4 or 6 courses each. The setting is traditional but beautiful. Service is very attentive and extremely professional. But the food - complex, certainly. Many ingredients... More

I had expected competent food preparation and excellent service from this one-star Michelin restaurant in a major hotel -- but Haerlin surprised me with its superb and satisfying modern food offerings and the amazing "choreography" displayed by its young, attractive staff (think of the "Harmonia Gardens" scene from Hello Dolly! but updated and without the pompous ostentation). I'd travel back... More

Lovely touches throughout the whole meal from the bread box served with different flavoured salts. Every time they served you a course you get a tiny little explanation card of what's in the dish. Without going through all the courses, they were all excellent just one, which was a miniature cordon blue take on the classic veal cordon bleu, though... More

We recently dined at the Haerlin to celebrate our first wedding anniversary, and it was a meal and overall experience that will stay with us for a long time! The location is great with beautiful views of the Alstar and fountain and the hotel in which it's located seemed to be equally as luxurious and grand. The restaurant itself is... More

This was our second visit to Haerlin and we were just as impressed as the first time. The room has been refurbished since our first time in December last year and it looks lovely. All the staff are attentive and the overall service was excellent - they take a real pride in their work and the delicious food they are... More

I had the pleasure of dining at this restaurant during my honeymoon ... a true paradise! Wonderful location, great dishes, both to look at than to eat, and impeccable service. The best restaurant I've ever been.

My wife and I ate here whilst staying at the hotel. The restaurant was decorated, very tastefully, in an upmarket conservative style, the tables well spaced, most with a great view of the Binnenalster. The service was excellent, but discreet, with the waiters dressed, very traditionally, in white jackets and white gloves. All the serving, and uplifting, was choreographed with... More

At first the location, we had the chance to get a table in front of the restaurant with a beautiful view on the Alster. The decoration, barock style, not quite modern. The service, as already written, is done by quite young people but in a very professional way. Was ok for us but may disturb some older or snob guests.... More

Outstanding food and service. Classic service style and cuisine that proudly features local and seasonal products. A multi-course extravaganza, served over several leisurely hours. Top notch service from all and great recommendations from the Sommelier. We ahve dined in plenty of "starred / hatted" restaurants, but the Haerlin delivers an outstanding product. Where else would you see a Martini cocktail... More
