“Very nice romantic evening in the Bank.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

The converted bank makes an excellent décor for the buzzy london or new yorker style restaurant.
I found the website irritating, but managed to book on-line and actually get a confirmation.

Warmly welcomed and seated, the two of us found the menu excellent. We had a tapas starter, with small intricate delicate entrées on a tall cake like platter in 3 stores. Since being the only wine drinker I choose a Californian pinot noir to go with the whole meal. My partner had beer, which luckily there is an abundance of in die Bank.

Steak Frites for my partner perfectly cooked, and pike for me. So tender and beautifully executed. lemon sauce and asparaguses. TOP TOP!

Chocolate cake and vanilla ice.

All in all the food and the venue is superb. So get the on-line up to scratch and service in order (slow though being very pleasant).

We definitely will revisit.

“Recommendable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

Perfectly located in Downtown Hamburg this gives you an impression of how business must have been made some decades, maybe more than a century ago. Stylish restaurant where seeing and being seen is guaranteed. Ambitious dishes, nice wine list. Not really fine dining, but very good quality. Appropriate service level.

“not bad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

I had lunch at Die Bank which is German and means The Bank. I actually worked in this bank back in the 1990s and I must say the decor is improved. It is a very stylish place in the centre of Hamburg and one of the hot spots for the chi-chi crowd. No reservation, no table. If you want to see and be seen Die Bank is a good place. I don't care one bit about the environment, I am only interested in the food. And that was rather good. I find Hamburg a desert for good food and Die Bank is one of the few oases in this desert. I had a steak with fries and a salad and everything was very nice. Not mind-blowing nice but solid. Service is also very good.

“Great place, ambience and food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

Perfect seating i the far left corner. Service was fantastic. We chose a wine that was sold out. In stead the waitor proposed an alternative wine. The wine was great and a whole lot cheaper that the one we first ordred. We decided to go with the menu and all dishes served were delicious. Great place

“Cool!!!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

We went there only for drinks. The service was excellent and the prices reasonable. We loved the place for its great atmosphere and the very friendly staff. The building is also great ( used to be a bank ). Definitely go back if ever in Hamburg again.
