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.

We were in the mood to be pampered this evening and Jacob's did not disappoint. It is a very elegant restaurant with a view of the Elbe. The food was finely prepared with the type of presentation you would expect from a fine restaurant. The staff seemed to sense our every move, not disturbing us as we enjoyed our meal... More

This restaurant delivers big time on service and quality of food. The décor is elegant and formal. The service is friendly, professional and very knowledgeable throughout without being too stiff. The food is everything you would expect from a two- starred Michelin restaurant: seasonal, fresh, french, well prepared, traditional yet innovative and very delicious. Curried lobster soup to die for,... More

Location wise it's a plus as it's is beautifully located across the Elbe. I am sure it's a different dining experience in the summer. Their staff service is commendable! very prompt, ears to your special requests and not too intervening & pushing. Food was an excellent match of taste + presentation. Highly recommend for a wonderful dining experience. Tip: prior... More

We attended this restaurant for my birthday. The food was very good and the location looking at the Elbe is wonderful, but we endured sitting there 4-5 hours (one hour per course apparently) because of bad service. A private party was sucking all the restaurant's resources. We sat next to a door and when it swung open and we looked... More

We ate here on our recent trip to Hamburg .We really enjoyed our starters,a mezze 10 small dishes,each one very tasty. The main course was a selection of prawns,chicken.lamb and beef served with rice. This was a bit too much. Next time I will go for a main course such as a prawn dish. Overall great value for money.

Dear niftydublin55, we are pretty sure there must be some mistake in regards to your comment above and in association with our restaurant. At Jacobs Restaurant we clearly don´t serve a mezze platter or any kind of 10 course menus. We would be more than grateful if you could reconsider your note here on Tripadvisor. On behalf of the whole... More

Dinner at Jacobs Restaurant is a genuinely wonderful experience. The setting is calm with water views, the staff are fantastically professional without being remote, and the food is simply outstanding. What does this mean in practice? Well, when ordering the staff can guide you in detail through the range of options (and note that while there are 'set' menus you... More

This cafe / restaurant at Hamburgs Elbe is one of the oldest and most renowned in Hamburg (robert Redford got married here). It is about 25mins drive from Hamburgs city center near the very high end suburb of Blankenese. The view is fantastic. If you sit outside you look right on the Elbe river and see all the container boats.... More
