Well we enjoyed a good cold night in the inside of the restaurant at winter, the food is good and delicious though a bit expensive, good eine selection, in summer days is the restaurant at best to seat outdoors and enjoy the view of the Maschsee

I was visiting a friend in Hannover and after being out for a bike ride saw Pier 51 and thought about eating there looking over the lake. They weren't open for another hour but kept us a table free and the food was fantastic. Perfectly cooked fish, well seasoned starters and great pasts. The serving staff were helpful, polite and...

Our group of 8 had dinner here on a perfect summer evening. We sat outside and the kids played nearby until dinner came. The salad was exploding with different flavors in each bite and had the most wonderful goat cheese in it...my mouth is watering just thinking about it. And then the truffle gnocchi - like little pillows of heaven!... More

The restaurant is located on the lake (Maschsee). There is an excellent view of the lake from the extended platform. The food is good. I had opted for German food. The service was prompt and friendly.

This place was great. Food was very good and wine was good. View is great of the lake. Reservations are needed even during the week. My dinner companion made the reservations 4 weeks ahead of time to get a table for 2 on a Wednesday night.

This restaurant was recommended as a favourite haunt of people entertaining customers. However, it is virtually not possible because of the appalling noise absorption. We were a party of seven and we were unable to have a common conversation. As to the food, the portions for some of the starters were far too large. This means less appetite for the... More

it is located in the artificial lake, close to the city hall. the walk to the restaurant is very pleasant as the city is very safe. I was there for a business dinner, the restaurant was closed for the event, but I could evaluate the food is of great quality and the service is very good.

Located directly at the Maschsee, the lake of Hannover, this glass made building is directly over the lake. The menu is small and exquisite. All the dishes are well made and accurately served. Just the background noise of the location was quite annoying.
