“A must see in Hamburg”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

I cannot count the visits any more, I have been there with guests from all over the world, as it is one of the most special places in town. Enjoy the decoration (and all these celebrities who have already eaten here) and the food, of course, you have to try Labskaus (traditional dish on board of the ships). Don’t miss to visit the men’s bathroom. The staff was very friendly and fast. The restaurant is located next to St. Michaelis church (Michel) - which makes it easy to enjoy a cultural highlight and a traditional meal afterwards.

“Labskaus - a must eat in Hamburg”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

Altough it looks a little auckward, Labskaus is a very traditiona dish from Hamburg which one needs to try if you want to explore the flavor of that town. Especially if fish is not your thing...
It is said that they have the best Labskaus in town at the Old Commercial Room. Since it was the first time for me to try this dish - i have nothing to compare it with. But it was suprisingly good. The ambiance is also very authentic and a bit rutique with a great service. The staff was very friendly and fast. Only the prices are a bit high - but taking into consideration all these celebrities who have already eaten here and getting the chance of trying one of the best Labskaus in town it's worth spending the money. The restaurant is located next to the St. Michaelis church (Michel) - which makes it a great trip seeing some cultural hughlight and enjoying a traditional meal afterwards.

“Excellent in every regard”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

Important to mention that we went on a Sunday night when it was really quiet and we not only got a lovely table we had excellent service and attention. Food, traditional German, was really good and reasonably priced. All in all an excellent experience.

“Excellent Weiner Schnitzel”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

This place is just simply great for having an excellent cool beer or two and very tasty meal with good friends. I have tried the Labskaus and lovely though it is I much prefer the plate sized Weiner Schnitzel with some cucumber salad and the delicious Bratkartoffel. The interior is warm and welcoming as are the staff and they serve until late which makes it hard to leave on a chilly winters evening. The seating is around large tables in booths of varying size so that groups of varying size can be accommodated, we were 11 last visit. Well worth a visit but check that they have space for you.

“Excellent”
Reviewed December 24, 2013

Great situation opposite St Mickaels, and not far from the Landungsbruecken - you have to try one of Hamburg's most famous dishes - Seemanslabskaus - you even get a signed Certificate for eating it. Excellent winter fare.
