The food is original French food, and was quite nice. The price was fair, the service was okay. I had expected more from reading here, and was a bit dissapointed. It wasn't bad at all, I have just tried better at the same price. But worth a visit :-)

If you are looking to have proper french food then this is definitely the place to go to, it is a little expensive but completely worth it (honest price!). Staff is professional and attentive.

On warm days they have outside seating. We had a nice although somewhat expensive lunch. I had a calf liver salade which was really nice. The service is friendly and attentive, and from some of the the tables you can see the hustle and bustle of the kitchen and the waiters picking up the food, which is classic bistro style... More

A small and very special restaurant right in the city centre. Awesome food, very good wines, perfect service. A bit loud cause of many tables but the atmosphere is great anyway.Reservation needed. Meat, fish, salads, you get everything there. You will pay for the quality, but it is worth it .

Hamburg has not very many French restaurants but this one, owned by venerable Mr. Jacques Lemercier, is an institution. I have been their customer for many, many years even before the restaurant moved down town. It is not the place of high French sophistication but you get well prepared solid French plates at reasonable prices. And it tastes French and... More

One of the best restaurant in my trip. You should find your time here if you are in Hamburg. Not expensive at all compare to others.

Great food and great atmosphere. Appears to be full of locals. It is central, but just enough off the beaten track that you won't find it by accident. We were lucky to get a table without a reservation.

We may have had a bad day - but a bad day all round... Service was slow but friendly, food was well below par. Kidneys smelled from 5 meters and were under cooked. Pasta was hopelessly overcooked and Scampi Provencale were bone dry as if they were kept under a heating element for 10 minutes. Waiter saw that we ate... More
