As my wife is not very impressed by typical German cuisine and quite fond of French food, we thought during our stay in Hamburg that Café Paris was a good recommendation.

What a mistake!

We didn’t feel very welcome, as the service was inattentive and slow. The wine was not the best from the French cellars. And the food was hardly suitable for consumption. My steak was best to be compared with a shoe sole. And my wife had a Bouillabaisse, that appeared to be tapped from the drain of the dishwasher.

One small comfort: when we complained the Bouillabaisse was deducted from the bill. But that didn’t make up for a ruined evening.

The food are ok, not too bad for the price. The service was slow and the staffs were panicking, I guess they were under staffs that day. We like the atmosphere. A good place for brunch

love this place - great coffee and wonderful to watch the world pass - such interesting people to look at ! you can sit here all day and not feel rushed to move along - they do a Plat De Jour and it is great value at €10... sat here with some friends having drinks and coffee and soaked up the atmosphere ... go and enjoy

We had to wait about 10 minutes for a table for 2 on the weekday morning that we were there. We weren't greeted by the friendliest service crew in the world but once we sat down the service was much better. Maybe they were just too busy when we walked in. Food was great. We had the croque madame and the breakfast with eggs, bacon, etc. and it was really tasty. Macaroons were expensive and ridiculously small so my advice would be to give those a miss as they weren't that fantastic anyway. Ambiance was alright. Given how hard it is to find a good breakfast place as a tourist in Europe, I'd definitely go there again if I were in Hamburg.

We went for lunch and got a table quite quickly even though it was very busy. Ordered croque monsieur. Service was swift and efficient but not friendly. Food was very rich and a bit unpleasant. The room itself was very noisy which spoiled the experience. Try and sit outside if you can.
