Description: Wine bottles as far as the eye can see. The Kleines Jacob is more than just an offshoot of the top restaurant that lies opposite! The restaurant has an open-view kitchen with a stone oven, producing exquisite food, such as Flammkuchen. The staff are exceptionally friendly and give you all the time you need to enjoy your meal. Admire the walls which are decorated in cork and art work or sit and enjoy a cigarette in the large smokers' area. The restaurant is popular with hotel guests and anyone out walking along the banks of the river Elbe in Blankenese. The restaurant also offers a selection of European wine.

This is the perfect place in Hamburg: an old traditional restaurant overlooking "die Elbe" - the big river in Hamburg. Thomas Martin is the chef at this 2-star Michelin restaurant. We started in the kitchen in the basement and Thomas Martin himself introduced us to the kitchen and it's function. Started with at glass of champagne in the kitchen and... More

This restaurant definitely lives up to its 2-Michelin stars! We ordered A-la-carte and we got a taste of different dishes. The dessert tray was to-die-for as well. Service was amazing. That being said, we've tried other 1-Michelin starred restaurants around Europe which were just as tasty and a bit cheaper.

Even though it has taken me over a year to post this review, I just wanted to say how much my husband and I enjoyed our meal at Jacob. We especially loved the pre-dessert which we jokingly said we could eat another, no sooner another appeared. The service was faultless and the food amazing, the best meal we have eaten... More

This was a meal for a special occasion. The service was absolutely perfect with advice on wines to accompany the food. The food was beautiful, presented very professionally with flavours to die for. We had the established menu but were able to mix and match with the other menus if we wished. There wasn't anything that we disliked, we will... More

My husband called to beg, but they were full, but took our name down. LUCKILY they had a cancellation! Bingo! We arrived on time and were the first people at the... More

Before each course an appetiser was provided which were innovative and served in a vast array of fabulous plates. Everything was fresh, tasty and matched with... More

Whilst I enjoyed a few excellent meals at the LCJ in the past, I was left still hungry after a lengthy 6 course meal lasting for almost 2,5 hours with homeopathic portions. I did spend over €150 and was looking to fill up my stomach elsewhere afterwards.... Come on guys, this cannot be it! While the food was excellent, as... More

Visited on business with a group of 8 of us. We had the tasting menu with matching wines, sitting out on the terrace overlooking the river. The location is a little way out of town, however it gets the evening sun and looks out over the river, where you can see the large industrial ships that use Hamburg port, although... More
