Excellent food, but noisy room

We were a group of people and were placed in a room where another group had already started their party, which was very loud. Our party may have added to that as we had to shout to each other to be heard. The acoustics was thus terrible, probably due to the interior arrangement. This was the... read more

When I first heard of this place, "The belly of Kiel", I had visions of one of those ubiquitous American all-you-can-eat nightmares with low-class people piling their plates to overflowing with rubbery, pseudo food. The name was so offputting, I had no intention of even trying to find it. Then one day as I was walking, I stumbled into this... More

Deer carpaccio is the most tasty meal I ate for a last few months! It's worth it - you should try! The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is amazing!

Walking distance from our hotel (Tom Kyle). Not a big selection but what we got was good. We drank their Spanish red wine, which proved to be an excellent choice in addition to being very reasonably prices.

Enter this restaurant and you are immediately taken by the classy-utilitarian decor: Polished wood floors, white table cloths and a friendly greeting from the staff. The food was terrific, especially the fish dishes. The place is a little hard to find but worth the walk through some of Kiel's nicest neighborhoods.

I don't do lunches, they lack atmosphere, and you can hardly enjoy a glas of wine without feeling sleepy for the rest of the afternoon. Nevertheless, this turned out to be a great place to celebrate my husband's birthday with his family: the food was excellent! We ordered one bruschetta with peperonata and a goat cheese and figues bruschetta... really... More

Exceptional are the waitress Farideh and barman Gordon. After a hard days work they spoil us rotten:-) the restaurant is not on a Main Street in Kiel, quite hidden... More
