Perfect overview of the harbour. Delicious food and the menu was a very good offer. Tasty and freshly made.

We sat outside for lunch here. The food was fresh and well cooked - simple and tasty. The mixture of fish plate was especially good. The restaurant is right on the harbour and gives a good view - although it is a view of large merchant vessels, but I liked that. It appears to be inside a converted warehouse and... More

We sat outside watching various boats and ships cruise by whilst enjoying a lovely róse and beautifully cooked and presented turbot with mushrooms, potatoe cubes with a lovely pancetta sauce.

This place is directly beside the FischMarkt in Hamburg. The entrance is a bit tricky to locate because it looks like an entrance to an office building, but is actually the restaurant. IF Hamburg has nic weather, seat on the balcony. U can see ships, ferry's and other boats go by. Service is good, food is excellent. Medium price category.... More

The restaurant is well located ( next to the fish market) with a beautiful view, nicely decorated and the atmosphere is quite good... But the dishes aren't impressive, the pasta was good but the main course quite mediocre( I ordered fish). The service was really bad, the waiter kept us waiting for about an hour after the first course and... More

Nice, mid to high-price Italian restaurant in the heart of the Hamburg harbor. Tables are really nice close to the windows (or even better: outside during summer). Food is good and there´s a nice menu selection (but quite expensive - as most wine menues are in Germany, i.e. bottles start around 25-30 EUR).

I dined here as part of a business group and the service and food were very good. We were served some very delicious starters and the main course was very good also. The restaurant is large and has nice views over the waterfront in Hamburg.

Located in Hamburg's port section. It is not one of the most ''showy'' ones, but well worth finding. Food and service are great. I had a fantastic salad of shrimps and fried artichokes that was to die for...perfect flavours! The pasta is original (not the usual pasta offerings) - we recommend the pasta in osso bucco sauce. Great dessert and... More

Great foods, with beautiful view of the Hamburg port, but the service was a bit slow, very reasonably price.
