A very nice surprise downtown Hamburg. High quality of the ingredients (a mozzarella that tastes like mozzarella is not normal in northern Germany, believe me), surprising combinations, adequate wine, friendly service, pleasant location. The tables are a bit too small but this is the only minus I can think of.

The staff was helpful friendly and cheerful, very uplifting. Without a reservation they accommodated my wife and I and never rushed us.

I first went for coffee and cake and mentioned that I might come back for dinner. They actually remember me and had even reserved a single table for me, how nice is that! But not only that the atmosphere is fantastic and staff could be old friends but the food is also excellent. They have been around for a long... More

Delicious warm ambient and excellent food. Dishes are tasteful and innovative and wine is excellent (I could find Valpolicella and Amarone!!!). I will come again as soon as possible.

We always go to the Deichtor Halle when visiting H'burg, but never at lunch or dinner time. What a mistake. Great lunch, accommodating staff, huge serving, delicious salads and yet quite cheap. The evening menu looked very interesting. Need to go back asap.

Appetizer was roast beef, didn't smell fresh. I had to order icecubes three times before they finally served some and it was difficult to get attention. The starter was uninspired - salty duck cold cut with salad and dry cranberries, the best dish but far from a highlight. The mains were almost revoking - ravioli, venison with a terrible crust...

Thank you for your honest evaluation. Unfortunately we didn't hear anything about your dissatisfaction during your visit in our restaurant. When you complain about what we offer, we would have had the chance to renew the dish. We are also wondering about the dishes you described. Because we don´t serve duck with cranberries and also no chicken with potatoe puree.... More

The Fillet of Soul is cosy restaurant and Café with an open kitchen close to the center Hafencity in Hamburg. The offer a very selected menu with just a few chosen dishes and great accompanying wines. Their service is warm, personal and very attentive. I've been there a few times and will definitely return.

I came back to this place after six years and it was a good experience again. The menu is short but food is good, especially for a lunch.

Thank thewarsawboy

The combination of arts and cooking is full of promises - We at the House of Photograpgy are conscious of this. So we decided, when we reopened the museum in 2005, to marry the works of important photographers with a creative, innovative but non-trendy offer of treats for the gourmet.Die Verbindung von Kunst und Kochen verspricht schon von sich aus Gutes. In dem nach einjahrigem Umbau 2005 neu eroffneten "Haus der Photographie" in den Deichtorhallensteht neben der Fotografie auch die Kochkunst im Mittelpunkt. Wobei sich "Kunst" im Fillet of Soul durch eine kreative, aber unverkrampfte, eine innovative, aber nicht trend-touristische Kuche definiert.Die offene Kuche und die komplett verglaste Langsfront des Gebaudes tun ihr Ubriges fur die Atmosphare, in der man neben gut essen vor allem eines kann: sich wohl fuhlen. Bei schonem Wetter ist unsere Terrasse im Innenhof der Deichtorhallen geoffnet. Wir wurden uns sehr freuen Dich als Gast in unserem Restaurant begrussen zu durfen.
