“Excellent restaurant”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

The construction and decor of this restaurant is very indicative of the cool warehouse district it's in. The plates were amazing and the staff incredible.

“our vegetarian main was very disappointing”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

On paper, the menu looked great. For our last night in Hamburg, we thought we'd splash out and go for something really special.

Our starter was a trio of asparagus soups and this was very nice. However, our main was described as carrot and pea ravioli and it turned out to be a bit of a dogs dinner. The ravioli itself was average but came with a lovely pecorino sauce. The real problem was the pile of spinach and pickled radishes that topped the dish - this just didn't work and was quite unpleasant. I left a lot of this dish and told the waitress that I was not happy. The dish was misconceived.

To be fair, our disappointment was reflected in our bill. The problem was dealt with very professionally, so no fault there.

We shared some cheese and that was very good. My partner adored the breads.

I think the problem may be that the restaurant isn't good at vegetarian food. We could see fellow diners raving about their food - particularly the steak tartare - and the couple next to us really seemed to enjoy their menu degustation.

Overall, I wouldn't recommend this restaurant to a vegetarian. But a meat eater can probably trust the more positive reviews.

By the way, the location is great - loved the old warehouses.

“Excellent restaurant!”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

We booked a table for lunch and we were surprised how full the restaurant was. Afterwards we understand it because it is really worth going there. The food is excellent, the prices are ok and the service is really great. Great compliments. It was the best restaurant during our 3 days stay in Hamburg!

“German cuisine in a new jacket”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

Enjoyed dinner at this modern restaurant located in the old warehouses in the harbor. The restaurant specializes in traditional german dishes but with a modern interpretation using local produce. They had an interesting and varied menu, the service was friendly though still "german" and the restaurant itself had a pleasant atmosphere. A place suitable for both business and romance. We were really pleased with the dishes, both flavorful and innovative..
Worth a visit..

“One of the best in Hamburg”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

My wife took me here for my 50th. She made a perfect choice.

Located in the old spice warehouses in Hafen City has become a favorite for us. Vlet offers a fixed menu as well as a la carte. The fixed menu allows diners to pick their courses from the a la carte menu so you do not feel that something is being forced upon you. I found this to be a great way to do it.

The restaurant offers traditional Hamburg cuisine but with modern styling. The portions are very tasty and exquisitely presented. Service quality is high without being intrusive.

I highly recommend this restaurant for those that enjoy truly fine dining.
