We had lunch here on our second day in Hamburg and weren't disappointed. The crowd seemed to be mostly local. A table outside along the canal is a nice place to be. There wiener Schnitzel was excellent with great salads and side dishes. The staff was very friendly and helped us get the table we wanted outside even though the... More

I've always visited this place to have a lunch during the week. They have a short but great menu always including a gigantic Wienerschnitzel (Veal) with a delicious potato/cucumber salad at 11Euro which is very good given it's size, quality and appearance. They always have a fish dish, sometimes an entrecote with chips and pasta. All very tasty. The place... More

We were walking around the gallery area not far from the Steinberger hotel and saw this treat of a restaurant low on the canal with no obvious entrance. Down some steps off the square and you enter into a light, original interior with candles and views onto the canal. Take the large second room and sit near the metal framed... More

I was trying to book a place in a restaurant in Hamburg on a sunday. To my surprise, almost all of my favourite places where closed and even some of the ones I wanted to try for a while. Since it should be a place close to the city center, I remembered that I have been to "Rialto" long time... More

I like the Rialto in Hamburg since it is located off the main tourist paths at Fleetinsel (metro: Roedingsmarkt or Stadthausbruecke) close to Hamburg’s center and hotels like the Steigenberger and Dorint. The food is outstanding, the service very attentive and I recommend to come here for a dinner with friends or even a business meeting. The menu changes often... More

The German kitchen is not very suprising. But this restaurant is a good alternative to eat when it must be good for the money. The personal is well trained and polite, the winescard has realy nice German (and other) wines wich are a nice combinating suprise. Because you have the change that the place is full, reservartion will be wise... More

Ate here two years ago on business, had good memories so suggested my host we would eat here again. Worked out well, not a large crowd on a Wednesday evening. Osso Bucco was well prepared, so was the fish for my host. Not your average menu, not for everyone. Place is difficult to put in a box; Bohemic? Burlesque? Modern?... More

Rialto is an elegant cafe' located right in the centre of Hamburg, in the attractive canal settings of the Stadthausbrucke area. The sight of tables nicely laid out across the canal will certainly lure you in. The problem is that Rialto doesn't come cheap at all. It really is one of those places that should only be reserved for special... More

I've been to this place many time over lunch. They have a great lunch menu - Wiener Schnitzel (11Euro, veal) and others. Changes slightly, good stuff stays on. Worth making a reservation. The view is also nice overlooking the canal. So the restaurant is a great value over lunch just the service is sometimes good and sometimes bad which made... More
