“improbable, remarkable, wonderful”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

We had decided to eat here because of the reviews on trip advisor, and our plan was confirmed when the taxi driver taking us to our hotel said it was the only place to go in the city!

It is the most extraordinary place. If it did not exist, you could not imagine it. First it is some way from the centre of Bremen, and you have to go through a kind of industrial wasteland to get there. Second, it is enormous – a kind of giant refectory. But third, it is not enormous enough: when we got there at six there were long queues (well-managed, we waited about 45 minutes)and those queues remained throughout the evening.

So why so popular? Because of the service, the quality and in particular the quantity of the food on offer. Lots of people have commented on the size of the portions, and this is true, but it is not just quantity at the expense of quality – the antipasto misto we had (and we wisely had one portion between the four of us) was extraordinary in its variety and imagination. After this we just about made it through the main courses (all excellent), and the bill, when it came, was a pleasant surprise.

Not a place for an intimate dinner for two, maybe. But if you want a family celebration, or just a good noisy happy blowout, then this really is the place.

We shall return

“Large portions of delicious food”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

One of our most favourite restaurants in Bremen. You need to make a reservation in order to avoid joining the que at the door, which regularly uses to be more than ten metres long.

“Impressive place”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

Reasonable prices for huge portions and good quality. Be sure to book a table before you go. I will go back with the family as there are many things on the menue that is exotic and different from other restaurants in Bremen.

“A wonderful eating experience”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

Located in the former Ueberseehafen area this restaurant is unique in the whole set-up, but offers excellent food, beautifully presented and the very big hall has a great atmosphere. Worth a visit!!
