Description: The combination of arts and cooking is full of promises - We at the House of Photograpgy are conscious of this. So we decided, when we reopened the museum in 2005, to marry the works of important photographers with a creative, innovative but non-trendy offer of treats for the gourmet.Die Verbindung von Kunst und Kochen verspricht schon von sich aus Gutes. In dem nach einjahrigem Umbau 2005 neu eroffneten "Haus der Photographie" in den Deichtorhallensteht neben der Fotografie auch die Kochkunst im Mittelpunkt. Wobei sich "Kunst" im Fillet of Soul durch eine kreative, aber unverkrampfte, eine innovative, aber nicht trend-touristische Kuche definiert.Die offene Kuche und die komplett verglaste Langsfront des Gebaudes tun ihr Ubriges fur die Atmosphare, in der man neben gut essen vor allem eines kann: sich wohl fuhlen. Bei schonem Wetter ist unsere Terrasse im Innenhof der Deichtorhallen geoffnet. Wir wurden uns sehr freuen Dich als Gast in unserem Restaurant begrussen zu durfen.

“Food Excellent, Service confused and slow”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

The "Fillet of Soul" is a very good restaurant. I had the "rookie Labskaus" and a salad, and both were very good.

The problem is with the service. Admittedly the restaurant was full, but I had one guest at my table, who actually wasn't served. She put that to her "impoliteness of having seated her herself". the next guest at my table was a bit more assertive and was able to place an order. the effort it took didn't make him happy, though. I for my part almost had to pick up my own wine, which was sitting at the staging station for 10 min, undelivered.

with this in mind I recommend visiting during the week, assuming that traffic then is okay. The food is good, but the service is just plain painful, when it's more crowded.

“Urban atmosphere paired with excellent Steaks”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

This restaurant is an excellent place inside one of the best places for photo-Exhibitionismus in Hamburg (Deichtorhallen). The whole party hat different Steaks and the staff mixed up Medium vs. Rare... - they replaced it out of there open kitchen immediately (added it...!) - very good. Very friendly staff!

“Great hype place for bistro lovers”
Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

Had great food, but do not go there if you need a quiet place. This is a small place with a load acustic, but the food quality was really great. The waiter did not really know anything on everything, but we had a great evening. One note though: you need to drink wine, they have as good as nothing else and they expect you to buy wine.

“Something different”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

Menue is different and away from normal stuff. Very good and fresh quality. Little crowded, but high turnover. Need to have reservation! Great location.
