We went in hope to find a bit of a Mediterranean-fusion experience: all hopes were fulfilled! The quality of the dishes was excellent blending different flavors in refined ways. We had cold avocado soup with sour creme and smoked herring, home made blood sausage with lentils, truffle filled fish and fresh cod fish. Desert a prosecco soup with lime sorbet.... More

This is a brilliant little restaurant, serving honest food without much further ado. As a starter I had the pickled salmon, and that was absolutely to die for. The wildboard bratwurst that I chose for the main was also well above average. Serving staff is friendly and knowledgable, again without much further ado. - I look forward to coming back... More

A great local find in Hamburg, busy, good atmosphere and wonderful service, they looked after us when we were asking what they suggested for us based on our German trip so far and a nice touch giving us a complementary asparagus soup after we had a chat about white asparagus in Germany, we made a reservation so recommend you do...

We got there early and a reservation is certainly recommended. The ambience is bistro style with a good atmosphere. And then came the food.... Just outstanding in taste and visual presentation. Service was very friendly and very efficient. A definite place to return.

We booked in advance by email (from the Netherlands) a table at this restaurant because of all positive recensions. We were not disappointed. Restaurant Cox exceeded our expectations. A small gem in the Lange Reihe. Besides the excellent food (a.o. fish) the ambiance is cosy and relaxed. Above all we were impressed by the ladies and gentlemen that served us... More

We had a nice dinner in Cox restaurant. As starter, we had carpaccio, which was really good. And as main course, both of us had fish, that was nice but not spectacular. What was really good was the Deutsche wine recommended by the waiter. In overall, I consider that was a little bit overprice...

Excellent restaurant in St Georg area. Very buzzy atmosphere and a mostly local crowd. Excellent food - tomato soup was superb. Friendly staff and good value. Beware they do not take visa or mastercard, only cash, german bank cards or Amex.
