Great brunch, great time! We had brunch there, service was awesome, super cosy environment. It was a cold rainy day, perfect coffee to warm up.

This is such a popular place. At 14:00 on a wet Tuesday in November it was busy. The service was great. Cool young wait staff. To really fit in you need a big black Mercedes and a large dog but even without those you'll have a good meal in unique surroundings. We had lunch; a fish of the day and... More

We ate some daily specials under 20 euros each, little details make it special, like a parsley sauce with mint. You first think and taste the parsley and all of a sudden have a fresh breath when the mint kicks in. Personal was friendly and we enjoyed our lunch. They have a burger for 30 euros in the menu and... More

I had high hopes for this place and expected the food and location to be fantastic. It was a little better than average, but nothing special. For whatever reason, the entire Restaurant (inside and out) was utterly packed to the brim - I have no idea why people go here. We ordered the potato soup, pimentos, Spätzle soup and the... More

This place just never disappoints anyone. The shack at the beach has great people working there, excellent food, large portions, no fuss but just pure fun. Empress Toeny is the best of the pack, the wines are gorgeous and if the weather is fine there is the best view on the island! Go for it but make sure you reserve... More

We reserved one day before overlooking the fact that we were visiting on a Friday night thus predictably, the 8PM tables were fully booked so we settled for a 6PM early dinner. One gets the impression that since it is by the dunes & beach, Sansibar is set up for drinking from sunlight to sunset to sunrise - the small... More

the setting is great and can not fault the food, which is good, especially the curry wurst, but as it was a rather hot day the service was unable to cope and drinks arrived a lot later than the food. A bit disjointed but still worth a visit.

Fab setting amongst the dunes, Mercedes Benz sponsored Bobby-Cars for the kids...Food is fine doesn't blow you away unlike the setting! Ultra cool place to people watch in Sylt.
