I had booked early to be sure of a table at this beautiful restaurant that my partner had found. This was a good thing to have done as we got an amazing table in a niche, very romantic. I had already drewled over their online menu but it was still a difficult decision to make once I was there. If... More

Bremen's history hails back to the Middle Ages as shown by the beautiful architecture in its city center. Dining at the Ratskeller allowed a more 'inside view'. High domed ceilings and dark wooden structures (beautifully carved wine barrels) formed the backdrop to a menu which includes local specialties such as fish ragout and Grünkohl but also from other parts of...

Delicious beer in a really historical ambiance is the best experience I have ever had. All waiters dressed like mid-age and the decoration belongs to old fashioned in many years ago. The drink itself is not something special but the place is completely impressive. If you are in a group it is better to reserve a table earlier.

This is an atmospheric cellar-type restaurant in downtown Bremen. Good for family as well as professional dinning. Service is ellabotated and personel come il faut. The food itself....is not that much impresive. Rathel flat tastes with unispired dish conceptualisation.

We tried earlier today to book a table for this evening but we were told it was fully booked. However the guy said that if we turned up at 8 or 8·30 we might be lucky. We did and we were. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere, the service was speedy and the food was excellent. I had a pork... More

This is a very popular restaurant and famous around Bremen. It serves traditional German food and good beer. I was here as part of a large international party from work. We were promptly seated on arrival and had a large table to the side of the restaurant. The waiting staff were attentive and very efficient. I had the potato soup... More

Luckily we booked a table, the waiter/owner? Was brilliant as we don't speak German and guided us through the menu even though it was very busy. The food arrived very quickly and was piping hot - great mixed fish dish for me and schnitzels for the others- big portions and all very tasty- smiles from all the staff- definitely recommend...
