We wanted to celebrate our 10 year anniversary while in the port of Warnemunde while on a Baltic cruise. We took the train to Rostock and enjoyed a nice lunch at Borwin Hafenrestaurant along the waterfront. I had sussed out restaurant reviews beforehand and we were not disappointed with our choice. The little restaurant doesn't look that exciting from the... More

Located right on the water a few steps from the city marina. When the weather is nice, they serve in several outside areas. On a cold, wet summer evening, there is only the main building. Charming, warm and welcoming. Good efficient service. The menu offers fresh fish by weight, but we chose from the menu. The grilled seafood starter with... More

Very nice and cozy restaurant by the water. Decent prices for excellent dishes if you compare to UK or Scandinavia value for money. The restaurant was full on a Monday evening but we were seated in less then 10 minutes wait. Waiter offered very good and friendly service even if there were a few language barriers.

Cozy restaurant with old-fashioned decor. For starters we took buffalo mozzarella and then a whole dorade with fried potatoes and green beans with bacon. And a bottle of chilled Riesling. Wonderful. Everything was absolutely top class and the price was very low for such wonderful food.

This is a panoramic place with splendid view to harbor area. It has certain rustic sleepy charm. It is bit pricey but recommendable.

I was maybe coming to the restarant with too high expectations. The fish dish I selected was nothing extraordinary, but the fish was fresh though. Fried fish, fried potatoes and a quite ordinary salad for 24 euro. The service was great, but price was too expensive for the quality of food.

Enjoyed a great meal with friends at this restaurant - tip:reserve a table since it can get quite busy especially during holidays and summer season.

This one of Rostocks most famous restaurants, therefore you should reserve a table in advance. To eat here is really expensive, food is great, location is great, but when I was here last time service was a little impolite - the waiter was stressed by lots of work due to "Hanse Sail", but for the price they charge guests can...

We booked a table for 7 p.m. to be told we were supposed to have been there at 5 p.m., but they found us a table. For the starter, I had the scallops which were rubbery and exactly not how they should be cooked. The accompanying salad garnish looked as though it was last week's as the carrot and radish... More
