Good restaurant

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

On the river in Rostock this is a charming indoor/outdoor restaurant. We had occasion to sit outside on a sun dappled July afternoon watching the fishing boats deliver their daily catch. And that's the deal: Borwin's blackboards tell the story. The fresh fish caught that day are listed with their market price. You tell the waiter how you'd like whichever... More

I live in Germany, so I have come to understand that service is still a foreign concept here at times. However, Borwin took this to inexcusable levels. The problem, I fear, is that this restaurant attracts so many guests that the staff are beyond caring. The food may be decent - as it should be at EUR 25 per dish... More

This place is located in the harbor area of Rostock. it doesn't look like muck on the outside but the fish is excellant. We ate outside they have a nice area for that. When the menu says check the black table for fish of the day, they mean the blackboard.
