“Cosy place in the city”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

Great atmosphere. Try the Schnoor Brau - not my favourite, but my boyfriend loves it. North German cuisine - looks horrible, tastes pretty good.

“Delightful surroundings”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

We came across this restaurant by chance while wandering through the Schnoorviertel, and I remembered seeing good reviews on Tripadvisor, so we decided to try out the local specialities, Labskaus (corned beef hash with pickled gherkin, beetroot and a fried egg) and Bremer Knipp (sausage slices, apple sauce, fried potatoes and a gherkin.) Interesting and quite tasty, but perhaps not very remarkable! There was plenty of choice on the menu otherwise, including several fish options. We sat outside under an umbrella on a warm but rather windy evening during which it threatened to rain more or less continuously, but it was so interesting to watch people going by that we didn't mind. There was a statue of a local 'character' right by our table, so we risked appearing in several photos taken by tourist groups! The service was a bit slow, considering it wasn't particularly busy, but the waitresses were unfailingly charming and friendly, so as we were on holiday it didn't matter. With a glass of wine and one of the excellent local beer, plus strawberries and icecream, a slice of apple tart and two coffees, the bill came to about €50.

In this maze of little streets it's easy to get lost, but serendipity won out that evening.

“Great place for authentic German dining experience”
Reviewed February 2, 2012

Our hotel recommended this place as great place to sample local cuisine and we were not disappointed. What made the experience so great wuss the wonderful service delivered by our waitress. They even changed my wife's dish that she incorrectly ordered without cost or fuss. Value was also very good, at about €20 per head for 2 courses incl several beers. Would highly recommend this place and would difinately return again.

“Not just your average restaurant”
Reviewed September 23, 2010

We visited this restaurant based on a recommendation from staff at our hotel (Lichtsinn, highly recommended). The name might make you think of a Greek restaurant, but is actually based on the German title of the movie "Les enfants du paradis".

Behind the impressive historical facade, one finds a cozy restaurant with a mixture of typical regional dishes (Pannfisch, Labskaus, etc) and more varied dishes. The food was tasty and we spent a pleasant evening. Also the "Schnoor Bräu", a special beer only available in this place made for a very nice variation from the common Beck's.
