“Great location and good standard of food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

We sat outside in the courtyard as it was a beautiful evening. The food is good, not awesome or a gastronomic delight but just good, solid, German food served with a level of finesse.
Our waiter was superb, I'm afraid I don't speak German and they hadn't printed the English menus at the time so he patiently translated. I had a really good house German red wine.
All in all expect good food but don't expect to be amazed, expect a beautiful location inside or outside in an exceptionally impressive Town Hall in this interesting and cosmopolitan city.
Worth a visit.

“Expensive, medium class restaurant for tourist who do not know better places”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2011 via mobile

I really cannot believe this place is partially full of people, there are so many better restaurants in Hamburg. The restaurant is right under the Hamburger Rathaus, ehich should be the main reason why food is 5-10 Euro more expensive than in other restaurants of the same class. It is overcrowded, like a fast food hall. The atmosphere is destroyed by the enormous noise of the people.. not the place to enjoy the food relaxed actually. Quality of food is max. average. Prices therefore are very high compared to quality. Service staff does not have a chance to be in time really. sorry, 100 better restaurants I know in Hamburg are better than this .

“Beautiful restaurant and lovely service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2011

We were 3 adults and 2 kids and stopped in this restaurant juts for drinks and soup and some french fries for the kids. The service was really nice, they treated us the same way as if we were having full lunch. The menu looked nice. I had the carrot-orange soup which was delicious. If we get the chance, we would love to come back. Considering the location and setting, the prices were ok. Only slightly higher then average.

“Very Good Place To Eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2011

We went here after spending the previous evening in the Hofbrauhaus. In the Hofbrauhaus we were served thin, dry, tough schnitzels with very burnt potatoes. In the Parlament we ordered virtually the same food and delivered to our table was succulent schnitzels with unburnt potatoes at roughly the same price. In fact it was so good we went there again the next night. Service was good even on the busy second night. I have no idea why the Hofbrauhaus has better ratings as it is far inferior to here. Perhaps the reviewers are more used to McDonalds as standard fare so the Hofbrauhaus would garner good reviews but in all seriousness this is a good place to eat.
