This place was absolutely perfect...! The food was as good as I was told. And also the wine list. The people who work there are really nice and always so gentle.

This place is a Sylt Icon. It's a must when visiting. The food is very good and the menu is vast. They have a fantastic wine list. The staff are very helpful. The perfect place to relax and eat. I will return as soon as I get a chance.

and I am the small boy calling him naked. Sylt is the most hyped German north sea island and Sansibar THE place to go. This thing is a text book case for successful marketing of a product without a lot of substance. We went there for lunch last week and after some waiting got a nice table. The restaurant is... More

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
