First of all let me say that the food was innovative, well executed, and mostly delicious. For that reason I am giving it five stars, but I have had better overall experiences at other restaurants, mainly due to the service which I found to be a bit contrived (old school) and cold. For the older set this might still hold... More

Just had loup de mer with German Riesling and had outstanding experience! Fish was just great, service attentive, but not presumptuous and quite helpful. Great dinner experience. I'll come again and hope to return here with my wife.

I booked the Hanse Stube for a Business Dinner / 3 parties. Reservation process was easy and I was asked if I would require anything special or if I would have some additional request. I arrived early and was seated immediately and after we sat comfortably we were asked for our drink choices. Hanse Stube offers a great Wine Selection... More

We wanted a special lunch to celebrate our Silberhochzeit and this venue didn't disappoint! I chose the fixed lunch menu, three courses for €38pp, which for the quality was exceptional value and my husband chose from the Business Lunch menu. Very attentive service and good wine choice by the waitress. We would definitely recommend this fine dining experience.

I had to try it. I was alone, and quite early, so I'd say if you want a private experience, go early (6 PM). The other 3 tables were all business, and so there was that restrained politeness. The staff expertly handled the table and settings... service was attentive and efficient. There was definitely a hierarchy in the wait staff,... More

My starter of a trio of lobster with mango and salad was absolutely wonderful - the flavours went together perfectly and the different forms of lobster were perfectly cooked. One of the best starters I have ever had. However the main of roast partridge with chicory and partridge jus was completely acidic and rather hard to get through. Although the... More
