best fish restaurant in town

Enjoyed a great meal with friends at this restaurant - tip:reserve a table since it can get quite busy especially during holidays and summer season.

I was maybe coming to the restarant with too high expectations. The fish dish I selected was nothing extraordinary, but the fish was fresh though. Fried fish, fried potatoes and a quite ordinary salad for 24 euro. The service was great, but price was too expensive for the quality of food.

This one of Rostocks most famous restaurants, therefore you should reserve a table in advance. To eat here is really expensive, food is great, location is great, but when I was here last time service was a little impolite - the waiter was stressed by lots of work due to "Hanse Sail", but for the price they charge guests can...

We booked a table for 7 p.m. to be told we were supposed to have been there at 5 p.m., but they found us a table. For the starter, I had the scallops which were rubbery and exactly not how they should be cooked. The accompanying salad garnish looked as though it was last week's as the carrot and radish... More

Very good dishes, nice place, but bad service without love for clients. Clean, a bit expensive, good icecream.

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. Something I've come to... 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.
