I spend 3 hours researching on Ballhaus before leaving from Denmark to visit the place. There was only a table at 5.30 pm I was told, on several email correspondences. Never the less, the house was half empty until 8 pm. We could really have...More

Intriguing place. You step into this old ballroom, which is completely timeless. An interesting mix of guests and smell of dancing and beer. You can imagine the loveliness of the place when there is music and dance, but we didn’t have that luck. And, to...More

A quirky traditional old restaurant and dance hall. Different dance theme every evening a good standard of food. A wee bit erratic on arrival of the courses, but forgivable given we were 16. The people watching is fantastic. It is a bit basic on the...More

Eating outside in the UK is a challenge - not just the weather but creating a relaxed, buzzy ambience that epitomises the best of continental Europe! This was a recommendation from one of my tour guides - and I have to say there were any...More

I've always loved this place for its history and atmosphere, and the pizzas aren't bad, but the service is truly abominable. It feels like it gets worse every time I go. The waiters seem genuinely annoyed that you're there and would do anything to avoid...More

This is a very odd restaurant as you are sat in a ballroom with large tables around the main room. Be prepared to share your table with others although everyone is friendly. It may look like (and probably does) need a good decorator in but...More
