“Good quality food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2013

The concierge of our hotel recommended the place as we didn't really want to walk too much. We were pretty surprised with the quality and the service. The environment is quite relaxed. At our arrival we spoke in English and since then, everybody addressed us in English, english menu, etc. I had a nice Irish Steak and the quality was fabulous.
We actually mentioned it in our travel blog :-)

“Good steak, ok service, quite pricey”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

Stumbled upon this place when visiting Hamburg on business. We were seated promptly, however it took a while for menus to arrive, and drink orders to be taken. However service after this was ok.

Ordered french onion soup to start with which was a bit wishy-washy, and the Hereford steak, medium rare. Steak cooked perfectly, serviced with a cracking sour cream (which the waitress brought extra over to us, nice touch). Also included was a salad which came over before the steak. I would have preferred for this to be served with the steak as I had soup for starter, and it was a bit basic as salads go.

Dessert was a 'hot and cold' ice cream with hot stewed forest fruits. Was tasty but not overly exciting.

Price for two including service came to €80, so not the cheapest.

Overall, steaks are good, service ok, ancillary parts (starters and desserts) are there to fill up the menu frankly.

“Holy cow, was this good (no pun intended!!)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

My hubby and I went here for dinner while on business. We had the Mrs. Rumpsteak special which was an well-portioned, not fatty, juicy, excellently cooked steak. The salad was fresh and not overly big and the steak came with bread, which was fresh and crunchy and a baked potato. The sour cream was the best sour cream I've ever had in my life. It had some herbs in it, but the flavor of it was really good. Very fresh and flavorful, not like the sour cream here at all.
The restaurant itself was very nice, not too loud and the waitress was very friendly. And the prices for what you received were very inexpensive.
I later saw a tub of the sour cream available in a convenient market in the train station. wish I could have brought it back.... sigh...
We definitely recommend this steakhouse.

“Visited twice so has to be good right?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

Visited Apr 13. If you visit because you want a good steak without paying through the nose, then this is the place to go. As a vegetarian my choice was a 'Garden Potato' which was basically a jacket potato with truck loads of sour cream, ask for the sour cream on the side otherwise it overpowers everything you are eating. No other vegetarian choices. I remind myself that it is a 'Steak House'. The meat eaters were really impressed with their steak. Lacks vegetables, my sister asked for steak and veg and she got steak and green beans. Steak €12.20, Garden Potato €7.90, reg coke zero €2.90. It was ok. Staff not that friendly.
