Great location and good fish!

The fish was pretty good. Service was nice enough - though I will say when we came in, a waitress looked at us expectantly and we asked her if we could have a table, and she rudely replied that she wasn't in charge of tables and to ask someone else. A simple redirection would have sufficed... read more

The menu changes each day to highlight the fish that is fresh that day. Beautifully prepared food in a wood interior that is warm and delightful. I had the three-fish sampler, and each was delicious and quite filling.

Simple meals with fresh and tasty fisch. But a bit expensive. The atmosphere is nice and warm welcome. The service is slow.

Over the past several years I have dined at Borwin several times and it is always a wonderful experience. Both the food and service I have found to always be above reproach.

Ended up here when Rosmarino could not fit us in. The restaurant has tables outside, on the dock, in a glassed-in veranda and inside the actual building. The waitress was very friendly and accommodating and the substantial menu offered German/italian food with a focus on fish. We shared some antipasto and then had a good pasta that unfortunately did not... More

The "Surf & Turf" was tasty, served hot and appeared on our table at the speed of lightening. The unusual potato roulade stuffed with pesto was amazing. Great view from the "verandah", the River Münde flowing out to the Baltic. Inexpensive and delicious....value for money.

Been to Borwin few times.Undoubtedly one of the best seafood restaurant in MV state. Excellent soup and fish selections. Though the service can be improved. Less smiling and less conversing waiters except the one guy who wasn't in a waiter uniform, could probably be the owner or the manager. Great food for good value, service average.

Although we booked the table was poor and the food nothing special. It was busy but we couldn't see why and the staff were not the friendliest in town. There are much better and better value places nearby.

In Rostock just for one night, we decided to try this well reviewed restaurant. We were very happy with our choice. The staff was very accomodating, we hadn't reserved but they still found us table. The fish soup was superb and the cod was excellent, fresh and well cooked. The rest of the meal was equally good and tasty. If... More
