Staid at the hotel for our 25th wedding anniversary. The food was among the brst food we have ever had. It was real "haut cousine" the traditional style. The menu was fantasticallybput together without one single dish that was not perfect both in presentation and flavour. If youbever have the oportunity go there!

I have eaten at several recognized restaurants but Restaurant Haerlin was in my opinion one of the best dining experiences that I have ever had. It is an experience - from start to finish. The ambiance is serene, elegant and peaceful. The service was the perfect amount of attentiveness but not over bearing. Each course was served with a written... More

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
