“Deserves its great reviews.”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

This is a standard for us when visiting Hannover on business, it never disappoints and always offers impeccable service, with wonderfully cooked food. This week I went for their suckling pigs cheeks as an appetiser and the veal as an entree, very subtle flavours and cooked to perfection. Their wine list is very good and reasonably priced too. Definitely worth giving this restaurant a try, you will be glad you did.

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

The first thing I noticed was the nice evironment. A lovely restaurant. We took the menu 1 and menu 2. I was nice to see you have the choice to take the menu without dessert. A huge amount of wines. And the sommelier tells you all about it if you want.

Friendly staff. Overall a very nice experience.

“Romantic and Chic”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

We had a pleasant dinner. The location is nice and the service is perfect (really friendly, with a lot of attention).
There is a huge amount of wines from all over the world.
We took two predefined menus. The food is presented very well in the dishes. The quality of ingredients is very good. We were a little disappointed by the staters and the desserts, while the main entrees where very good (especially the veal).
Given our experience, it is one of the most romantic and chic location in Hannover.

“Repeat Customer”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

Now during winter, they are ready to take your winter coat, hang it and then usher you to your table. They do have different combinations on the menus for 4 course means with options to choose all or some of the courses. The waiter was so professional and the food is well done. The ambience is elegant and it is a place for special occassions. Each time I am in Hannover, I make it a point to go there for dinner at once on each trip. After your dinner experience on your way out, they ask whether you would need a taxi.
It is good to make reservations becuase the place can fill up, if you go between Tuesday and Wednesday, you might get away without having reservations.
