Opposite to traditional sushi, these came with carrots and weird red vegetables in it. The Nigiri were the same weird makis but with salmon on top. The rice was also not very enjoyable. Maybe other food of the menu is better, but the sushi is not to be recommended

This is a beautiful restaurant in a good hotel. The food quality was quite good, although the menu is very limited. It's a bit expensive. Reception was rude and weird, but the waiter did a very good job.

While I loved the Reichshof hotel where I was staying, I was a bit disappointed by its restaurant. The lunch menu did not have many options and my fish was good but not outstanding, contrary to what I was expecting in a town with direct access to the sea.

I went to Slowman because I didn't want to venture out from my hotel. This was a mistake. There are much better choices within 1 block. I ordered the 3 course dinner, a beer and asked for water. The beer never came. The water cost EUR5.5 The food was nothing special - especially for the price. It was convenient but... More

Went to Slowmans as Tripadvisors have been predominantly extremely positive. Deeply disappointed. Food reasonable, but definitely at the best only 2 out of 5 based on quality and price. Ambience dull. Less than half full even on a Saturday night.. We were told that the Chef was in to live music and would personally entertain with his guitar and voice.... More

On September 3rd I went to have dinner at Slowman during my first visit in Hamburg. I was amazed when I walked through the reception/bar, which is huge and amazing looking. The staff were all smiling and welcoming, and we continued into the restaurant where we were seated. We had made a reservation with short notice, but when we arrived... More

This review is about the Slowman restaurant as it is currently Feb/2015 in Hamburg. As Slowman will move to another location we really hope that they do not change significantly and that the new location is as relaxing as the current one. We have been to the Slowman restaurant during the week on a Monday. Although going out on a... More

We spent the saturday evening dinner there with local live music. The saturday menu (4 courses) was very delicious, very fresh and local! Service stuff was exceptionally friendly; location ist quite funny since it is over several floors.

Slowman in Hamburg uses good quality ingredients to prepare its dishes. For dinner there are fixed three course menus for €35,- (you can add a fourth). Veggies can also have dinner here, but there will be no tofu or cheese or soy replacement for meat. So it is all vegetables, well prepared, but in I my opnion a bit too... More

On a Saturday night there is a fixed 4 courses menu (with choice btw fish or meat for main course). The starter was uninspired sushi rolls with a very tasty little soup. Then followed a nice but slightly overcooked ravioli with mushrooms. For the main course we had both chosen the meat (pork fillet) which was very overcooked and dry... More
